For any gentlemen who care about their sartorial standing in society, there will be certain style essentials that should be hanging in your wardrobe as we speak and chief amongst these essentials is that of bespoke dress shirts. There are few items of men’s clothing that will add more regal style to one’s outfit than that of dress shirts and finding the right tailor is essential because they will be capable
of crafting you a shirt of such impeccable comfort, you will wonder why you weren’t wearing bespoke shirts earlier.
The art of tailoring has gradually receded further and further from the high street as more and more low quality but high quantity fashion outlets take their place but it is imperative to keep this tradition alive because there is nothing more elegant than a well-tailored shirt.
The craftsmanship and dedication to quality that is evident from London’s finest tailors is something that really sets them apart in an industry whose standards are declining rapidly and time is no longer put into the creation of clothing.
Whilst a finely tailored bespoke dress shirt will inevitably cost more than those found in your typical high-street retailer, you pay for quality and the difference in fit, comfort and materials will be highly palpable.
Finding the right tailor
As with most things in life, you’ll need to find the right kind of style for you when it comes to picking a tailor, because clothing is such a subjective thing and each person will have their own individual ideas about how they want their dress shirts to fit.
A good bet is to start with a well established and renown shirt maker, where you can be sure of the excellent service and a professional advice. A place definitely worth visiting is Budd Shirts, still operating today from the same traditionally looking store in the Piccadilly Arcade, which first open its doors over a 100 years ago, in the distant 1910.
Offering a bespoke tailoring service where your dress shirts will be hand-crafted in their Mayfair cutting room, Budd Shirts offer the sort of service to their clients that London was once famed for but the art of making finely tailored clothing is, sadly, regressing of late. But quality always wins out and that is why Budd have managed to thrive despite running all their operations from a small shop in West London. Such is the esteem in which this tailor is held, sartorially refined chaps all over the world such as New York request personal visits from their tailors and this truly is testament to the quality of the fine dress shirts which they have been producing for over a century.
