Ever had the problem where you buy a shirt and it’s the right size around your neck, but then the sleeves are either too short or too long, or the body of the shirt is too baggy and the length of the shirt is too long? Finestitch & Co can help solve that problem. We make bespoke tailored shirts that are made to your measurements and customised to your exact styling choices.
The process is simple:
- You choose your fabric from our range of over 200 fabrics,
- We take your measurements,
- Then you make your styling choices.
- Within 3-4 weeks your tailored shirts will be ready for pickup.
Made to your preferred fit
Slim fit, regular fit, or loose/relaxed fit – the choice is yours.
Shirt length – we can make the shirt the ideal length in proportion to your body so that the shirt can be tucked in or left out and still look good. Wear with a tie and tuck in for formal occasions /work; or lose the tie, leave the top 2 buttons undone and leave the shirt tail out for a smart casual look. You get more use out of a single shirt!
Casual tailored shirts are also possible – shorter shirt tails, soft collars, smaller collars, larger collars, half-sleeve – we can make almost anything your mind can conceive!
We also make Tuxedo Shirts – see Something Special.
Removable Collar Stays
Collar Stays stabilize the collar’s points. The Stays ensure that the collar lies flat against the collarbone, looking crisp and remaining in the correct place. Collar Stays should be removed from shirts before washing or pressing, but then should always be put back afterwards.
Thick Collars and Cuffs
A mark of quality when it comes to business shirts and formal shirts, the stiff collars and cuffs hold their shape better for longer. The fusing within the collars is also of high quality in order to prevent bubbling and puckering after washing or a few uses.
In order to prevent buttons from falling off, Finestitch shirt buttons are lock-stitched – sewn in X formation rather than H formation (which is more prone to unravelling).
In the unlikely event that you do lose a button – all our shirts come with a spare sleeve placket/cuff button and a spare centre placket button as backup.
Single needle stitching
For added reinforcement and strong seams, single needle stitching creates a more refined, smooth seam that doesn’t pucker like with twin needle stitching. Single-needle shirt seams are sewn twice – once up and once down the seam – this dispels the common misconception that twin-needle stitching is superior. Twin needle stitching is considered the lazy option – yes there are two rows of stitching, however each row is typically sewn only once and not reinforced.
