Most people here the word custom and immediately think expensive or unnecessary. But if you’re gainfully employed, or would like to be, custom shirts are an easy route to looking successful. Edith Head, an American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design once said:
Clothing is a powerful tool, if utilized correctly. A rising popularity in startup culture with an influx of millennial employees has caused a dressing phenomenon in menswear. Direct to consumer brands like UnTuckIt have seen rapid success and sport kitschy mantras like “The Ideal Shirt for the Untucked Man.” Brands like these deploy simplistic off-the-rack shirting options for men, specifically designed to be left untucked.
Call me old fashioned, but aside from Casual Friday, untucked shirts are left to weekend runs to the grocery store. Men are looking like freed prep schoolers, ripping their stowed shirttails to freedom after the bell rings. Instead of looking like an unkept schoolboy, why not appear polished, stylish and successful? For those of you who haven’t drifted from the traditional tuck, this is a friendly reminder that fit is still KEY! (example below)
Off the Rack vs. Custom
Benefits of Custom Shirts:
– Long-lasting: These garments will last you far longer than cheaper, more temporary shirts. The price tag will certainly make up for the longevity. These shirts keep their shape, color and texture wash after wash.
