If you know me, you know that I’ve always been more of a quality over quantity type of person. It’s probably because we are living in times where our attention spans continue to grow shorter, almost everyone is trying to get rich quick, and everything is being over saturated in one way or another.
However, not only do I prefer quality over quantity when it comes to my lifestyle, but I believe in this approach when it comes to my wardrobe as well. Therefore, if I had to choose 50 “so-so” fitting dress shirts over 10 perfectly fitting custom dress shirts, I would always choose the latter of the two.
So here are my top 3 reasons as to why I love custom shirts!
1. The fit is Key!
I say it all the time but I could never say it enough. Whether it’s a 3-piece suit, a dress shirt, or even a hoodie, having the right fit is always the most important factor when it comes to looking and feeling your best.
Fortunately, some brands are doing a better at job at making sure their clothes fit well. Especially if they’re labeled slim, extra slim, or even tailored fit.
However, some of my best fitting dress shirts have all been made-to-measure!
2. The Details
My second favorite thing about custom shirts is being able to choose and adjust all of the little details. For instance, for this shirt, I chose the fabric, the cuff style, the collar, and I even added a monogram on the cuff with my initials!
It might not seem like a big deal for some people, but if you’re a detail-oriented person like myself, you know the “little things” make a huge difference.
3. That Feeling!
Last but certainly not least, there is definitely a special feeling that comes from wearing custom made clothing.
It’s hard to put into words, but simply put it’s just a huge confidence booster knowing that your clothes were made specifically for you!
As always, thanks for reading!
