How to Measure for a Custom Dress Shirt | Modern Tailor
It's time to go shopping, and you go to your favorite store. You find some great new stuff this season. You find out the large is a little too tight. So you try an XL but it's a little too baggy. Aaron Marino of alpha m. says you are experiencing the in-between size situation. Here's how to handle it.
  1. Buy the small size - not an option
  2. Buy the larger size - not the optimal choice
  3. Look for a designer / brand with a slimmer cut or a larger cut - try a department store
  4. Take them to the tailor for alterations - for around $10 you can get a better silhouette
  5. Have a custom shirt built - take measurements from an existing garment not from your body
