When it comes to men's fashion, there is nothing more essential than a tailored dress shirt. It's a piece of clothing that can make or break your look. It's imperative for those who prefer a classic, formal, or sophisticated style to own numerous tailored dress shirts in their wardrobe. While off-the-rack dress shirts are readily available, they tend to fit improperly as they cater to a generalized size chart. In contrast, a custom-tailored dress shirt considers your specific body dimensions for a fitting that is precise, comfortable, and stylish. In this blog post, we'll explore the world of tailored dress shirts and how they can elevate your style effortlessly. 

Why You Need Tailored Dress Shirts?

A dress shirt is a versatile garment that can be worn on any occasion, be it a formal event, a business meeting, or a casual outing. The advantage of a tailored dress shirt is that it is designed specifically for your body. You can choose the fabric, the buttons, and the collar style, among other details, to create a shirt that is uniquely yours. A well-fitting dress shirt accentuates your physique, enhances your confidence, and ensures that you're ready for any challenge. 

The Process of Getting Tailored Dress Shirts 

At Tom James, getting a custom-tailored dress shirt is a simple process. A TJ clothier will meet you by appointment in the convenience of your office or home to accommodate your busy schedule. The measuring process involves taking measurements of your neck, chest, waist, hips, sleeve length, wrists, shoulder width, and shirt tail length. Once the measurements are taken, you can select the fabric, the collar style, the cuffs, and other details that you prefer. Your TJ clothier will then create your shirt pattern with the preferences you discussed which will provide you with an exquisite fit.

Custom Men's Shirts for Business Casual

While dress shirts are typically formal pieces of clothing, custom-tailored shirts can also be designed for a more casual look. Business casual shirts made to measure are perfect for men who want to look sharp but not too formal. Business casual shirts can be made with different collar styles, patterns, and fabric types to suit your personal style. You can wear them to the office, date night, or a weekend brunch.

Custom Men's Short Sleeve Shirts


Short sleeve shirts provide a relaxed and casual look and are perfect for warm weather. Getting a custom men's short sleeve shirt ensures that you don't sacrifice the style for comfort. You can choose from various materials such as linen or seersucker which are ideal for warm weather, patterns, and designs, including printed, solid, or striped, to create the perfect short sleeve shirt that compliments your physique and preference.


The Benefits of Investing in a Custom-Tailored Dress Shirt

A custom-tailored dress shirt is an investment in yourself. It's a piece of clothing that is unique to your body shape and enhances your overall appearance. Besides, a well-fitted shirt lasts longer, looks better, and feels more comfortable than any off-the-rack shirt. It's a piece of clothing that can be worn for years, making it a sustainable and worthwhile purchase. 

Tailored dress shirts are essential for today's modern man. They are versatile, comfortable, and stylish.

"Sarina is amazing! I hadn't owned a real suit or button-down shirt in 20 years because of fit issues. Now I have 9+ button-downs that I wear nearly every day and 5 suits that are so comfortable. Sarina makes the bespoke clothing process fun and easy; I look forward to buying new clothes because of her."
