Is there anything quite as chic as having clothes made especially for you? No dealing with those pesky retail “sizes” or a waist that fits but a sleeve that hangs so far below your fingertips it’s like you’re wearing a wizard cape. Unless you’re an instructor at Hogwarts or Stevie Nicks, we advise abandoning that look immediately.
The solution? Get thee to a tailor, especially one like Van Aken Custom, and get thee there while they are having a special. Through May 15, the local shirt maker is offering first-time clients a discount on custom-made dress shirts. Buy three or more and pay $175 each rather than the normal $229-$279.
Van Aken’s shirts are all handmade from luxury fabrics – even better, they’ll come to you to do the initial fitting, plus they’ll customize shirts to your preference with monograms or special cuffs. And probably, if you really want them, wizard sleeves.
