blog-innerimg1We often get asked what is the difference between custom tailored shirt and ready-made off the rack shirts and we always give the same answer that it’s like comparing apples to oranges. Here are some quick pointers to help you differentiate between a off the rack shirt and a good quality custom tailored shirt-

Fit -First and foremost point of difference is the “Fit”. Just like a good quality suit, the fit of your business shirt is very important. You need a bespoke shirt to compliment your bespoke suit.But getting a shirt that fits you right can be a real pain as you need to find a shirt that has correct collar, sleeve measurement and fits you well on the body.

Off the rack shirts are made based on a standard sizing and the chances are you are compromising on the fit if you are buying a ready-made shirt.

Our Custom Tailored Business Shirts are made to body measurement so the shirt will fit you perfectly.

Fabric – The fabric used for shirt is very important. The shirt fabric must be durable, breathable and easy to iron. That is why good quality shirts must be made in 100% pure cotton and 2 ply Egyptian cotton. 100% Cotton is just pure 100% of the good stuff. 100% cotton shirts lets you breathe, it’s more comfortable and it lasts a LOT longer. Two-ply Egyptian cotton, which means two threads woven through the shirt, making it more durable, softer and less see-through!

Collar, placket and Cuff Canvas – thicker quality canvas is used in good quality bespoke shirts. Placket, collar and cuff of the shirt are fused to increase the life of your shirt.

Pattern Matching: Shirt is made of separate panels of fabric. On a well-tailored stripe or check shirt, the stripes and checks should be aligned at the seams as opposed to being messy and erratic.

Stitching: The best place to check the quality of the stitching on the shirt is the collar and side seams. There’s no hiding bad tailoring here – the stitching should be even and tight, especially around the point of the collar and double Stitching down both sides of the business shirt is always a sign of quality and durability.

At Bentex Suits, we do not like to compromise on the quality. Whether you need a business shirt, casual shirt or a dress shirt to match with your weddingsuit, with 1000+ shirt fabrics you will be spoilt for choice!

Roshni and Ajay, were a joy to work with. They were very professional and incredibly friendly at the same time. They worked within some tight time constraints, and managed my Groomsmen being abroad until days before the wedding.The suits are fantastic and I cannot thank you guys enough!! Olly
