Finding a good tailor is of crucial importance when looking for custom clothing, but it’s only the first step in choosing the right custom-made shirt for you. They’ll then ask you what type of fabric you want for your shirt, and this is another one of the most important choices you’ll make in your final selection. So how do you do it?

Start by knowing that high thread count doesn’t just mean great bedding; it also creates high-quality, long-lasting custom shirts. You can find luxury mens clothing with a thread count as high as 200, but you don’t necessarily need to go up that high. Typically anything with a thread count of 140 or higher will give you a shirt that’s not only strong and durable, but also incredibly soft to the touch. If you’re looking among custom dress shirts, you’ll also find two-ply fabrics that make shirts even softer and stronger – and they don’t wrinkle as easily, either!

Secondly, make sure you look at the label. While you can certainly find great American designers that make shirts of high quality, other countries are known for being particularly skilled at making custom shirts. Look for labels that say the clothing is made in Egypt or made in Italy, and you can be sure that you’ll be getting one of the best custom shirts on the globe.

Custom shirts are as much fun to buy as they are to wear, so make sure you fully enjoy the experience along the way. While there’s a lot to remember, it will all pay off once you have a shirt unlike any other!
