Hi 🐠 Do you tailor your dress shirts 👔? Trying to decide if I should try to just get shirts custom made (I think it’s around $100 a shirt?) or buy a shirt from like BR and then have it tailored. Thx!

Usually most shirts will fit most people most of the time. I usually only fix 1 part of the shirt like sleeves. It's cheaper than custom made shirts

Just get shirts from Charles Tyrwhitt. It’s tailored to fit for free. They have 4 for 200 dollar sales.

4 for 200 is standard. 3 for 99 is sale price

Do you have a Nordstrom’s credit card? If you have an use it you can get points throughout the year and those points translate to alterations credit. I only ever buy during their yearly sale and I have enough points at a level where I can get $200 worth of free alterations.

If it’s only $100 get it custom made. Though be ready for some companies to mess up a few times before they get your fit right

Also I would strongly doubt the quality

100 dollars a shirt ? they better be made of gold!

If you wear blazers, tailored shirt fit is unnoticeable, unless you take your blazers off often

Not true at all. Sleeve, chest, and fit around the waist is still noticeable.

I just wear BR off the shelf. Never thought to get it tailored though guess I’m lucky that it fits right already 🤷🏻‍♂️

I have a weird torso (44" chest, 32" sleeves, 32" waist) so yeah, I have my shirts tailored, don't think custom made is necessary.

Thanks for the feedback all! The tough thing for me is that the waist of the shirt always puffs out by the belt which I think looks a bit sloppy on me. I’ll check out the Charles Tyrwhitt

Shirt stays suck, tucking into your boxers makes your shirts smell like ass if you get sweaty lower back/butt cheeks like I do.
