The old adage of "measure twice, cut once" is very apt for made to measure shirts.
The accuracy of the measurements will impact the accuracy of the fit, please take your time and get a friend to help. This is especially true for the critical shoulder and sleeve lengths where an error, once made, is compounded. Many people are tempted to tweak the measurements to get the fit they want – please don't. We offer a number of fit choices when you input body sizes. If you are not sure then
We prefer that you measure your body to get the most accurate fitting, as measuring an old shirt from our experience doesn't give the best results. But if you have previously had custom made shirts and you would like us to replicate sizes then use the copy shirt tab for inputing measurements
and we will do our best to achieve what you want.
