Fitted Dress Shirts
All the shirts that we tailor are "fitted dress shirts" or "custom shirts", we do not pre-cut or manufacture any standard dress shirts. Every shirt that we cut is tailored specifically for you. The default that we use is a "regular" fit which is what you would find on a dress shirt that you buy at a retail store. But since all our shirts are cut by hand you can request an "athletic fit", an "extreme fit" or even a "husky fit". A true custom shirt is one where you give all your individual sizes and the shirt is custom made for you, a fitted shirt is more where you take a standard size shirt and modify the cut on it based on your torso, so there is less extra material around the waist area.
Athletic Fit Dress Shirts
Athletic fit dress shirts can be cut if your frame is athletic in nature where your chest is larger than your waist and you do not want excess material bunching up around your waist. You can use the same methodology with "slim fit" dress shirts where there is not the larger "V" in the torso but less material is needed around the entire torso area. In the past we have even cut athletic fit dress shirts for body builders and NFL lineman! There are some limits to what our tailors can do in the tapering, because at the end of the day they need to maintain a "natural contour" to the shirts so that they look correct, so in other words athletic fit shirts are "fitted dress shirts".
