Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, or so many people would have us believe, but one thing that every man will appreciate one more of is a well made shirt. You may consider the man you are buying for to be a man who has everything, but he might not yet have a made to measure shirt in his wardrobe, making a bespoke shirt as a Christmas gift an original and classy present to give him this year. So, how do you go about buying a shirt as a present?
There is no getting around the fact that you will need accurate measurements to ensure that the shirt is made to measure correctly. There is no point in buying a superior shirt if it isn't going to fit well - a shirt that doesn't fit well, no matter how much it costs or how high quality the fabric, is going to make anyone look sloppy. The measurements you will need in order to buy someone a shirt as a gift are collar size, arm length, and chest size. A shirt that fits well will allow a finger in between the neck and the shirt collar done up. If you are going on what shirt collar size someone usually takes, make sure they are wearing the correct neck size to start with.
A good made to measure shirt is an excellent gift to buy someone this Christmas. You can choose between a casual, smart casual, or formal look, or perhaps you want to encourage them to be a little bit more daring with colour or pattern. A bespoke shirt will make the person who receives it feel very special and they are sure to appreciate the thought, time and effort put into making it possible.
