Things to watch before and after buying custom dress shirt
Up till now most of the fashion bloggers and style enthusiasts have discussed many times about the benefits of a custom dress shirt. They keep on praising the mere plus points of wearing custom dress shirt but they never actually commented on the real issue that is how to choose a custom shirt maker and how to check the custom dress shirt when it is delivered. Here, we will first discuss how to choose a custom shirt maker.
Do not fall for magic size formula
We have latterly seeing many custom shirt makers, mostly online, claiming to have some kind of magic formula in which the client have to just give his height and weight. Now let us make you clear that there is no magic formula in dress shirt measurement. Never in your life go for shirt makers who claim these kind of things. In actual, the perfect fit of custom dress shirt is achieved after taking exact measurements of body parts of wearer. So always buy dress shirts from tailors who take full measurements of all limbs.
Fabric is not the most important element
We all know the fact that the fabric quality of a custom dress shirt is very important thing, but it is not the only thing. The design, fit and stitching are actually more crucial for a dress shirt. People have generally wrong behavior of only checking fabric quality while thinking that the stitching will be fine. However, customers should first check the samples made by shirt makers. Thoroughly check the seams, design and rest of the stitching. When you are satisfied with the tailoring powers of the shirt maker then go for fabric quality.
Be creative, there are a lot more design options
The best way to have a perfect dress shirt is to use your own creativity and aesthetic sense, as there are a lot more designs than shown on custom shirt makers. You yourself have to picture the shirt that how it will look like and use different designing options. If you rely on shirt makers then probably you will get that same ordinary look.
After selecting the custom shirt maker and ordering a custom dress shirt for yourself, now you have to wait for the delivery of your shirt. When shirt is delivered, the first thing you need to do is to check the shirt quality and overall fitting and designing.
Checking the fitting of your custom shirt
The first thing to check is the space between your neck and collar. When shirt is buttoned up, you should be able to slide two fingers between your neck and collar. While moving your arm, you should be able to stretch it without the sleeves riding up your wrist. The cuffs should be tight enough that they do not hang over your hand and you should also not be able to slip into shirt sleeves without undoing buttons on the cuff. The custom fit shirts should also lay comfortably on shoulder, chest and waist without any tightness or looseness. The length of custom dress shirt should be long enough that when you raise your arms, it should not come out of pants.
Checking the quality of custom shirt
Finer quality fabric shirts are made up of two-ply that makes fabric stronger, softer and wrinkle less. Do not forget to thoroughly inspect the seams of shirt. The side of shirt should have one visible seam that would be smooth and do not pucker. If you have buy dress shirts with stripes, then check that whether the stripes are aligned and they should make straight vertical lines on 90 degrees. The general design of the fabric should match where two fabric pieces meet, such as the joint of shoulders and sleeves. Collar of custom shirt is the most significant part, it should be crisp and firm and under no circumstances, it should get limp or get wrinkles and bubbles.
