Great shirts are seldom but easily seen and can really add a lot to a suit, blazer or with a pair of trousers. Unfortunately, not many off-the-rack shirts do you justice as compared to a custom made shirt . So if you want a great shirt that could be spotted miles away, look for a custom made shirt with the following qualities:
100% cotton is the most common fabric for custom made shirts. You can determine the quality of fabrics by the number of thread count per inch. The higher the number normally means the better the fabric. The average thread count is 80s. Beside the thread count, you may be interested in looking into the type of weave, such as twill, herringbone, poplin, broadcloth or oxford. If you plan to get a formal custom made dress shirt, broadcloth will be the best choice because its tightly woven and slight sheen, which make it very dressy. For those who want your shirts with wrinkle resistant capability, you may choose cotton-poly blend. With a bit of polyester in the fabric, you will be surprised how easy it is to maintain your shirts.
