The Custom Club: The Perfect White Shirt (To Wear To A Wedding)

What actually makes a shirt perfect? Just because it's the one you wore on your first date with your girlfriend might not mean its "perfect." Or, just because it's the only clean shirt you've got in your closet doesn't quite make it cut the musterd either.

Weddings take a good bit of planning to get just right. So why shouldn't the honorable guests (you) show your wedded buds the common courtesy by looking utterly daled? Our philosophy is that you should always dress the part...sure, but how about dressing better than the part?  

Weddings can be "casually casual", "dressy, not messy", and "put on your tux, people are gettin' married." Therefore, a guy's shirt should follow in suit. With that being said, we put three of our shop gents up to the challenge to create their "perfect" shirt to wear to a wedding. At the end, we'll give you all the details you need to ask for if you'd want us to make you a shirt that one of the guys is wearing.
