Shirts

Fit

The fit is very slim, slightly slimmer than H&M and Zara, much slimmer than Polo Custom Fit, Brooks Brothers Slim Fit, Banana Republic, and nearly all other retail brands. The sizes do not correspond exactly with our polos and sweaters; their rough equivalents are listed below. Measurements are in inches.

Features

All shirts feature large, luxurious mother of pearl buttons. You will find that these are as thick as the finest buttons on the market (3.5 mm) but larger diameter at 11 mm. Our photos show the white buttons to be more yellow than they really are, due to the iridescent nature of the material.

All shirts feature pattern matching at the shoulders and throughout.

Made-to-measure

We can also make custom shirts based on your measurements in any of the fabrics we offer. The price is the same as the ready-to-wear shirts and will take about six weeks.

Unlike other custom shirtmakers, we prefer to first send you one of our ready-to-wear shirts for you to try on, and then you can note measurement modifications based on that (e.g. +1" waist, -0.5" sleeve, etc.). This allows us to have a very good chance of making your first shirt fit well. Whereas the more common method of simply submitting a set of measurements typically results in ill-fitting, unwearable shirts for the first one or two iterations, and is a waste of your time and money.

To get started, take a look at the above measurement guide and purchase a shirt that you think will fit you best. If it just happens to be perfect, then you can keep the shirt. If not, return it and we'll make you a new shirt with your desired modifications.

Any combination of styling choice (collars, cuffs) and fabrics is possible. Please contact us for details.

Care

As with all shirts, machine wash cold on the gentle cycle and hang dry only. Heated drying will shorten the life of your shirt, as will the chemicals used in dry cleaning. A few minutes in the dryer on the no heat, air puff cycle before hang drying will reduce wrinkling. Also avoid bleach, fabric softener, and starch as much as possible. It's best to wash your shirts yourself, but any good cleaner, given these instructions, will suffice.

Over a few washes, the neck will shrink about 0.25" and the sleeve length about 0.5". Heated drying will increase shrinkage even more.

Additional spare buttons are available at no charge.
