The Perfect Tailored Shirt
Most men have more tailored shirts in their wardrobe than any other garment. Worn year-round, both casually and in more formal settings, the tailored shirt is a staple – the foundation of any outfit. For this reason, fit is extremely important. Both in terms of style as well as your personal comfort. Below you can find a small selection of tailored shirts from our collection. With hundreds of fabrics and countless customisation options available to choose from, we can take the hassle and stress out of finding the perfect shirt by helping you to create your very own.
Our expert tailors know how a shirt should fit. The shoulder seam should be in line with the end of the shoulder bone, the pivotal point of the shoulder. This ensures that the shirt sleeve moves perfectly with the arm, without pulling the shirt out of the trousers. The cuff should end just above the palm, so that the sleeve falls nice and straight without excess fabric collecting around the wrist.The cuff should also sit snugly – but comfortably – around the wrist, so that the wearer shows the right amount of cuff (1-2 centimeters) under his jacket. The optimal shirt length ensures that the shirt stays tucked in throughout the entire day, without leaving excessive fabric bulging up inside the trousers.
The Benefits of Tailor-Made Shirts A dress shirt is something that most men wear everyday. With so many people wearing the same thing, make yours stand out. Not only will your shirt be made-to-measure, but you can also personalise your garment to taste. We have hundreds of quality fabrics to choose from: from unique and rich monochromatic tones, to either classic or more on-trend patterns. We can even help you design a shirt with contrasting fabrics inside the collar and the cuffs. In fact, you can customise your shirt right down to the smallest details: choosing from numerous different collar, button, placket, and cuff options. Bespoke vs. Off-the-Rack Everyone has battled with “shirt fat” (excess fabric that bulges over the belt), sleeves that are either uncomfortably long or too short, and ill-fitting and bothersome cuffs. But even basic fit is comprised when you opt to buy off-the-rack. Because the fit of an off-the-peg shirt is based mostly on the collar size, shorter men with a robust stature end up with a shirt body that is too wide and long, whereas tall slim men end up with shirts that are too short in the body. Instead of buying a shirt made to fit some arbitrary “average” man, get your shirt made to fit you, regardless of your height, weight, or proportions. Why Choose Edit Suits for Your Tailored Shirt Based in both London and Singapore, we have the expertise and tools to turn your tailored shirts into something more than just your everyday uniform.
