Should You Invest in Custom Shirts?

If there's one rule that applies to almost everything in life, it's this: You get what you pay for. This is most certainly true when it comes to dress shirts. Of course you can find quality dress shirts in a department store for less than a custom-made shirt, but you won't find anything that fits or feels quite like a custom piece.

Purchasing custom shirts should be seen as a long-term style investment. For one, custom shirts are made of the finest fabrics in the world.

Your New York City tailor is the one who makes the shirt, not some third-world warehouse or sweatshop. This means custom dress shirts will last years longer than most store-bought shirts. Another benefit of investing in custom shirts is having a collection of dress shirts that fit your body perfectly. If you think you're confident now, just wait until your Manhattan tailor finishes your custom shirt.
