The Anatomy of a Dress Shirt

A custom-fit shirt is the key to looking sharp while still feeling like yourself.

We’re pretty sure you’ve got at least one favorite shirt. It’s the one you pull on the morning of a big presentation or slide into before the second date, when you already know you like her and want to look even sharper than your first meeting.

But shouldn’t every shirt you put on feel amazing and amass compliments?
