4 Things You Need to Know About Custom Tailored Shirts

custom tailored shirts

The clothes you wear say a great deal about you before you even utter your first words to a new acquaintance, employer or potential mate. Opting for custom tailored shirts over those found on the racks of clothing stores offers you significant advantages including saving you time and money. Here’s how:

1. They fit well

The way your shirt fits your particular makes a huge difference in the impression you give. Off the rack, shirts can differ widely in the way they are cut — even when you look at the same brand. A custom tailored shirt is made specifically for your body and will be adjusted to accommodate your movements. For example, the length of the sleeves, an adequate amount in the body of the shirt and ample allowances in the neck area are just a few exact measurements that are possible with a custom tailored shirt that you won’t find with ready to wear clothing.

2. Only high-quality materials

Shirts purchased at a store don’t typically use high-quality materials. To extract the greatest profit from their sales, the manufacturers use materials and industrial machines that get the job done as quickly as possible. This method, however, lends little to the longevity of the garment. With a custom tailored shirt, a professional goes over each detail of the garment to ensure that precision and durability are emphasized.

3. It’s easy to get personal

Clothing that is already made severely limits the range of personal style that you can adequately reflect. Choosing custom tailored shirts, however, enables you to embrace your individuality in some notable ways. First, you’ll be able to work with your choice of numerous materials. You’ll also be able to insert significant input into details such as the color(s) used, the design of the shirt collar and sleeves, the addition of pockets and more.

4. Save time and money

The chances are that you are like most people in that you can’t go to a clothing store, pick something off the rack and know that it’s going to fit you exactly. You’ll have to try on multiple different shirts to find a fit, color, and style that suit your goals. A custom tailored shirt involves a fitting in which your measurements and other pertinent information are collected. Different materials, colors, and styles of shirts are discussed to solidify your desires and goals. There’s no need to try on numerous shirts to find one that fits you.

Because time is money, you’ll also save money since you won’t have to spend precious hours of your day trying on various shirts. The high-quality materials and workmanship that go into a custom tailored shirt also mean that it is more durable and will last longer.

Embassy is so far above other places I’ve used that I regret not discovering them sooner. Not only is the quality of their service exceptional (right down to the hangers they use), but they’re also environmentally conscious, and so friendly. The service is efficient and they communicate well when your items are ready for pickup. I can’t say enough good things about them.
