What is the process for ordering a custom shirt?
Stop by one of our stores and we'll introduce you to our fabrics and style guide. The whole process of choosing fabrics, selecting styles, and getting measured takes about 30 minutes. Store hours: Valencia is open daily 11am-7pm and Chestnut is open daily 12pm-8pm.
What type of style options do I have control over?
The tone of the shirt is set with your choice of fabric and choice of collar. You then choose the type of cuffs, a front style, and pocket options. Smaller details include buttons, contrast stitching, monograms, and contrasting fabrics.
Will my shirt fit perfectly when it arrives?
It is important to understand that we are building a long-term relationship. We'll knock it dead or get you 95% of the way there the first fitting and we're extremely confident it'll be better than any shirt you have purchased off the rack. If any small tweaks are needed, we'll knock them out so it fits just the way you like it from there on out.
Can I bring you my own fabric to make a shirt?
Yes. We need 3 yards of fabric to make a shirt. The cost for this service is $225.
