- I went through the design process and I got the best-fitting dress shirt I've ever worn. Here's how it works.
Custom clothing is often thought to be reserved for those who have the luxury of time and money to spend at an artisan tailor. For that reason, most guys go straight for off-the-shelf options. But the reality is that no matter how much you spend on a standard dress shirt, you'll never achieve a fit as good as a made-to-measure garment.Fortunately, there are a few ways to get around those time-consuming and wallet-burning trips to a tailor, and one of the best options is a startup called Spier & Mackay.
Founded in 2010, Spier & Mackay is an emerging menswear brand from Canada that touts itself as a maker and purveyor of fine handmade dress shirts and suits. After realizing how hard and expensive it was for the average guy to get his hands on custom clothes, the company created an easy-to-use online portal for bespoke dress shirts.
Starting at $79 each, Spier & Mackay allows you to choose every element that goes into a dress shirt from the comfort of your home - or where ever you might be when you want to order shirts. There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from and dozens of customization options available, including materials, collars, cuffs, pockets, monograms, sizing, and more.
The company gave me an opportunity to customize my own shirt and it's easily the best fitting made-to-measure garment I have in my closet.
