We'll just come out and say it: Our custom shirts are incredible! Here, we will outline why: 

MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION: 

  • We begin by holding a high standard with our fabrics. Only quality, pure materials make it into our collection. (See Brands)

  • Interlinings are what create the shape inside collars and cuffs. Our interlinings come from Germany (Kufner) and are doubled to create comfortable collars and cuffs that retain their shape over time.

  • Because we don't use machine-cut patterns, we are able to match the patterns across the yoke, pockets, cuffs, etc. Often our pockets are nearly invisible.

  • Our high quality shirts are made with single-needle side seams which are less abrasive on the chest.

  • Heat-secured button thread attachment

  • Bottom buttonhole horizontal position for 1/4" added flexibility in waist area

  • Removable Collar Stays

AVAILABLE CUSTOMIZATIONS: 

  • 12+ collar choices

  • 10+ cuff choices (barrel or french)

  • 4+ pocket choices

Construction Process

Construction Process

Many of our clients ask how the custom manufacturing process works. Sometimes we forget that these processes aren't as normal for you as they are for us. Therefore, we'd like to fill you in. The following is the step-by-step process in which suit jackets, pants, and shirts are made.

9 Wardrobe Essentials for Professional Men

1. Grey Suit

A solid grey suit may be the most versatile thing a man can have in his closet. Match it with almost any color of tie or shirt, throw on either black or brown shoes and you’re ready to go.

2. Navy Suit

Almost as versatile as the grey, navy can be worn with a variety of colors. Wear a solid navy suit multiple times in a week with a different tie/shirt combo and no one will know.

A staple for casual friday or networking events. Pair it with khaki’s or lighter colored slacks and an opened colored shirt.

4. Casual slacks

Perfect for casual friday, great for summer days with no jacket, or pair it with your favorite sport coat. A good pair of lighter casual slacks can add sophistication and variety to your wardrobe.

5. white Shirts 

It’s been said that every well dressed man should have 3 crisp white shirts in his closet. A true staple and safe option for any occasion. Whether you are the CEO or the intern, a crisp white shirt always works.

6. Sport Shirt

Weather you are dressing down for casual friday, or looking to add sophisticated variety, a good sport shirt works great with no tie and with or without a jacket.

7. Shoes

The perfect pair of brown shoes can be worn with blues, greys, earthtones, etc. Go with a leather sole.

Though brown shoes are more versatile, a well dressed man should have a polished pair of lace up black shoes used for the more pivotal meetings and dressed up occasions.

8. Winter Coat 

A fine winter coat is a must for all men in cooler climates. Weather its worn over the suit coat or just with a shirt and tie, this sophisticated look will add clout and professionalism on those cold days.

9. The Right Accessories 

The finishing touch for the well dressed man is the right accessories. A white pocket square, clean matching socks, a good watch and well tied tie will complete your look.
