Spotting the Best Custom Made Dress Shirts in the U.S.

Sep 16, 2008
The man who wears custom dress shirts is the one who's well-dressed. Because off-the-rack shirts are made for one standard and one body-type, they rarely fit anyone well. Instead, a custom shirt is made exactly to your measurements and specifications, meaning it fits well and looks great.

If you're considering having one or a set of custom dress shirts made, keep reading for a breakdown and overview of some of the best tailors and companies in the United States.

Liste Rouge Paris Shirtmakers in New York

Liste Rouge Paris is based in Paris, France with their main workshop in Normandy. However they also have an office and workshop in New York. You can order your shirt either through their storefront or directly from their website (listerouge-paris.com). When ordering remotely, you will need to take your own measurements or visit a tailor to have your measurements taken for you.

Liste Rouge has been featured in GQ magazine, Maxim, Trump, Esquire, House & Home, Fine Living, Lifestyle and more. They were also recently voted the Best Men's Tailor by the New Yorker Magazine.

Seattle's Scott Kuhlman Boutique

Combining old traditions with hip styles and fashion-forward tailors who know how to both fit and style, this men's store is one of the best on the West Coast for custom-made dress shirts. They have hundreds of fabrics from Europe and Asia from which to choose. Kuhlman opened his first store in Seattle over seven years ago, but now has close to 40 shops across the U.S., including in New York, Boston and Washington D.C.

Houston's Hamilton Shirtmakers

Hailed and applauded by Men's Vogue magazine, Hamilton Shirtmakers are a small, yet very well-known custom shirt-making company based in Houston Texas. The majority of their business is done over the web or through mail order.

Customers can either take their own measurements and send them in or be measured at an affiliated retailer. At that time, a custom pattern is designed for you, based on your exact measurements - allowing you to order shirts at will.

After the initial cost of making your personal pattern, the price of their shirts drops to an average of between $170 and $300, depending on the fabric and the style of the shirt. They also sell off the rack.

Custom dress shirts are about more than making a fashion statement - they're about committing to wearing shirts that fit well and look great. So, stop wearing shirts that pull at the arms, tug at the buttons or are just half-an-inch too short, and start wearing shirts that fit you.

Most custom-shirts will cost between $175 and $250 to have made. However, if it's a shirt you will wear for years, then it's well worth the cost. You will look much better, feel more comfortable, and convey an attitude that says you care about your appearance. Subtle that it may be, this can be advantagous in both business and personal relationships.
