It is a tailored shirt when a length of cloth is cut and stitched to the measure of the torso of the person going to wear it. It is made to order. A large number of quality shirts are available in the showrooms; yet, the shirts that are tailored adapt suitably to the choice of the shopper. A common man can avail of a tailored shirt at economic prices. When there are so many companies churning out thousands of readymade shirts on a daily basis, people still prefer to purchase material to get it stitched by their personal tailor. Every showroom exhibits readymade shirts of various colours, material and sizes; yet, many a time the shopper struggles to find the one shirt he is looking for. This is primarily due to the size factor more than a colour or material factor.
Readymade garments are manufactured in set sizes. A person with rounded shoulders would fit into a readymade shirt and carry it off comfortably while his slimmer counterpart would be embarrassed with the width of the shoulder line overlapping on to the arms. A person looking for a perfect fit is more likely to be disappointed than successful as it is not only the shoulder size but the length of the shirt, the size of the chest, the width of the waist, the length of the arm and even the size of the wrist matters.
Oversized persons will find it extremely difficult to get the sizes they want in these readymade garment shops. Often, the shirts beyond the accepted collar size are rarely available. The giants and the big wrestlers and body builders would not find it easy to select from these showrooms leaving them but one option to select good material of their choice and have the shirt tailored fit to their irregular measurements.
It does make a difference when a person wears a branded shirt in today’s society and the logo is perceived by an onlooker. At the same time, a perfect fit tailored shirt makes you stand apart and arouses the interest and curiosity of those around in enquiring as to where the material was purchased from, where was it tailored and how much did it cost. A tailored shirt would be more affordable in its price in comparison to the branded one.
A tailored shirt brings out the creative instincts of a person in allowing him the selection process to give it a unique and individual design. Nowadays, tailoring companies deliver shirts in a day which is better than scouting ten shops for something that fits you well. So there is no waiting or the person getting the shirt tailored is not at a disadvantage as far as the time factor is concerned.
A tailored shirt accentuates the bodyline as per the preference of the one wearing it, thereby giving a feel of comfort which boosts the level of confidence to strengthen their persona. A tailored shirt ends up making you as your own master and not a slave of some designer.
