Did you know switching from off the rack shirts to men’s custom dress shirts not only makes you look better but it might even improve your job performance? Here’s what you need to know about custom tailored shirts.
There's nothing quite like the cut of your own slim fit shirt styled to your individual taste and made to your personal measurements. We can custom tailor a slim fit look for you that's sure to make you look sharp and professional.
Whenever you wear a custom made, slim fit shirt, you make a striking statement: “I'm an alpha male, a confident go-getter. I know what I want and I'm not afraid to go after it. I do not compromise."
Unfortunately, we at Montagio Custom Tailoring have noticed many men who seem happy to trundle around the city in their poorly-fitting shirts with mounds of fabric billowing over the tops of their trousers and making them look slovenly. Are they really oblivious to how others perceive their appearance?
An ill-fitting men’s shirt can broadcast the message that you don't take pride in your appearance; it makes you appear less confident, sloppy and unintelligent. We all know how much impressions count for in this world... a lot!
We work with so many men who think their off-the-rack shirt fits great only to find after they try custom tailoring that their perspective of a good fit changes forever. We've been told countless times "I never knew I could look so good and feel so good!" It gives us great satisfaction to know we're helping someone achieve their best look.
Step one: change your mindset about buying your men's business shirts. Step away from buying retail off-the-rack shirts; move toward custom tailoring. After all, it costs the about same and is more convenient, so indulge yourself.
Your individual shape is the secret ingredient of how a shirt fits, not the shape of the shirt. A few centimetres of extra fabric here and there alters the look and comfort of your shirt drastically, and this is where custom tailoring can make the difference. If the cut isn't slim enough, you won't project that sharp, sleek silhouette you want. In fact, if it is cut a little too slim, you won’t be able to lean over to tie your shoes!
Getting the right slim fit is a precision game. That's why only a custom tailored shirt can guarantee to give you the look you want combined with the comfort you need.
But when it comes to custom tailoring, Australia is lagging behind the rest of the world. In Canada, the US, the UK, Japan, Germany and many other countries, custom tailoring is the preferred choice. However, there are only a handful of specialised tailors in Australia who are able to provide this service, and yes, we're proud to be one of them.
A custom tailored slim fit shirt cost about the same as a good quality off-the-rack shirt, but what you get is a superbly tailored product made with:
Your shirt is made to your exact measurements and specifications. In fact, when compared to many similar quality off-the-rack shirt shops in Sydney (for example Farage, Herringbone, Rhodes & Beckett etc.), it often makes us wonder why anyone would buy a mass-produced product, when you can get a custom designed, fitted shirt for the same price?
Our slim fit business shirts, slim fit casual shirts, and slim fit formal shirts are so reasonably priced, you won't spend a fortune for the shirt itself and then another small fortune getting it altered to your fit.
A Montagio slim fit shirt is perfect 9 out of 10 times on the first fitting. On the rare occasion the fit is not perfect on the first go, we cover the cost of any alterations to get the shirt fitting just right. We also adjust our file records of your measurements so that on future orders, you will always receive a superbly fitting shirt.
In terms of quality, whether you purchase from our starting range textiles or our top-end shirting fabrics, the quality is consistently superb. The only differentiators are the brand and thread-count of the fabrics used. Otherwise, the stitching and finishing is equal regardless of the price range.
Worried about time? It takes as little as 30 minutes for your custom tailored consultation, which is a lot less time than you'd normally spend trying on scores of mens shirts in retail stores. Your order will be ready within approximately two to three weeks.
Believe us, it is well worth the wait! Once you try your shirt on and discover it fits you like a glove – just the way you like it - you'll never go back to wearing ill-fitting, off-the-rack shirts again.
Are you tired of struggling to find a perfect fit in off-the-rack shirts? Do you feel you deserve the luxury and comfort of custom made shirts? Ourexpert tailors are waiting to help you move into the world of custom tailoring and will guide you through every step of the process.
