    Default Tailoring Shirts -- Length

    Hey all. I'd like to start building a new wardrobe. The first item on the list is to have my collared dress shirts tailored to my build so I can wear them untucked. I'm not overly ripped but I do have wide shoulders with a smaller waist and this can make it difficult finding cloths that fit properly. It's either too tight or too much loose fabric around the waist. Ambercrobie seems to have some good shirts that fit these dimensions but ultimately I'm going to need to use a tailor. So my two questions are:

    1) What lengths should I go with for the front and back of the shirt? I've heard about 1 inch below/above the top of the front zipper and one inch above/below the back pants pocket. Is that about right?

    2) What's in as far as wearing collared dress shirts? I've been going with wearing them along with jeans, untucked, top 2-3 buttons undone and sleves rolled about 1/4 up.

    So no replies yet, but I would still welcome any and all I think my original assumptions on length were close enough. Also after speaking/working with a tailor it seems there is a specific (double?) stitch type used on untucked shirts along with a 1-2 inch split on the sides. Tailors may not be able to tell you much on current fashions but they can at least help with traditional cuts/stitches as they apply...

    Default Re: Tailoring Shirts -- Length

    I lift weights and also have to get dress shirts tailored. I leave the length as-is but have to get the area around the waist taken in because of the upper torso's V-shape.

    Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister have been making casual shirts for athletic builds, but most of them seem to be just a regular shirt one size smaller than it needs to be. If you're lucky you can find some that truly accent the muscular build that features shorter sleeves (to show of the biceps) and which are wider at the shoulders and thinner around the hips.

    For what to look for in collared dress shirts, one thing I look for is detail - the things which show people it's not an average collared shirt. Pearled snaps on the shirt pockets, a different fabric on the underside of the cuffs (which then are very noticeable when the cuffs are rolled up) or an unusual pocket design, etc. There's lots of ways to embellish a collared shirt. Probably the hottest thing right now is a collared button down shirt which has Affliction-like printing on the front and back, AND custom stitching/embroidery on it (it's fairly easy to find some that have just the printing or only the embroidery). I also have some collared shirts with fake military patches on them and "destroyed" collars & cuffs that the women really seem to notice.

    I have found great success with Doublju. Some people have had troubles with them. Just be sure to order from Amazon, they have a no questions asked return policy on clothing.

    You can get tailored shirts at Banana Rep that are really nice, and they're constantly running 30-40% off sales espec if you have a card with them.

    You can look at on-line custom shirt makers.

    Those from Hong Kong seem to offer the best value.

    just look for '852 directory' for custom tailors - it contains the most respected tailors

    A custom fit shirt is much better than an off the peg shirt
