Why buying a bespoke shirt makes sense for a bigger guy?

There are several reasons why buying a bespoke shirt can make sense for a bigger guy.

Especially Now, when money is scarce and you have to spend your money on things that will last you a little bit longer. 

  1. Fit: A bespoke shirt is custom-made to fit a person's specific measurements, which can be especially important for those who are larger or have an unconventional body shape.
    Off-the-rack shirts are often designed to fit a "standard" size and shape, which may not be suitable for everyone.
    Because what is 'a standard' fit no one really knows.

  2. Comfort: A bespoke shirt that is tailored to fit a person's body will be more comfortable to wear than an ill-fitting shirt.
    This can be especially important for those who are larger, as clothes that are too tight or too loose can be uncomfortable and unflattering.

  3. Style: A bespoke shirt allows a person to choose the style, fabric, and details that best suit their taste and needs.
    This can be especially helpful for those who have difficulty finding well-fitting clothes off the rack, as they may have more limited options in terms of style and fit.

  4. Quality: Bespoke shirts are often made from higher-quality fabrics and are constructed with more attention to detail than mass-produced shirts. This can result in a shirt that looks and feels better, and that lasts longer.

A bespoke shirt can be a good investment for a bigger guy who wants a well-fitting, comfortable, and stylish shirt that is tailored to their specific needs and preferences.

Think of price per wear concept and how many times you will actually enjoy the shirt. 
Next one on our list is:

  1. Durability: Because bespoke shirts are made to fit a person's specific measurements, they are less likely to become stretched out or misshapen over time, which can happen with off-the-rack shirts.
    This can result in a longer-lasting shirt that maintains its shape and appearance.

  2. Attention to detail: A bespoke shirt is made just for you, which means the tailor can pay extra attention to the details that matter most to you.
    For example, if you have broad shoulders or a large neck, the tailor can ensure that the shirt fits well in those areas.

  3. Personalization: A bespoke shirt allows you to choose the specific details and features that you want, such as the collar style, cuff style, pocket placement, and more.
    It could be semi cutaway, cutaway, English collar, etc. 
    This can help you create a shirt that is uniquely yours and that reflects your personal style.

  4. Customization: In addition to choosing the details and features of your shirt, a bespoke tailor can also make customizations to the fit of the shirt to ensure that it is comfortable and flattering.
    For example, if you have a round stomach, the tailor can add extra fabric at the sides to create a more relaxed fit.

  5. Saves time: Buying a bespoke shirt can save time compared to shopping for off-the-rack shirts, which may require trying on multiple sizes and styles to find the right fit.
    With a bespoke shirt, the tailor takes your measurements and creates a shirt that is custom-made for you, so you don't have to spend time searching for the right size or style.

  6. Convenience: A bespoke shirt can be made to your specific requirements, which means you can specify when and where the fittings take place.
    This can be especially convenient for those with busy schedules who may not have time to visit a store or try on multiple sizes.

  7. Exclusive: Because a bespoke shirt is custom-made just for you, it is a one-of-a-kind piece that cannot be found anywhere else.
    This can make it feel special and exclusive, which can be a nice perk for those who want something unique.

  8. Sustainable: Bespoke clothing is typically made to order, which means it is not mass-produced.
    This can be more sustainable than buying off-the-rack clothing, which often requires large amounts of energy and resources to produce.
