One of the most affordable luxuries in a gentleman’s wardrobe is the custom shirt. There is nothing quite like the feeling of getting dressed in the morning and slipping on a shirt that was created just for you.
Your man Jeeves has found an incredible source for fine custom shirts, just a stones throw from New York City. Across the Hudson in Newark, New Jersey is a gem of a shirt maker, Mel Gambert.
What impressed Jeeves most during his visit to the factory was that the small details, over-looked by many custom shirt makers, were attended to by the staff of Mel Gambert.
Jeeves watched with fascination the amount of hand cutting involved with the proper setting of the collar on each shirt. Many other makers omit this step which is a tragedy, because it allows to the collar to lay perfectly.
Considering details, the buttons on Mr. Gambert’s shirts can be of the finest pearl, and triple the thickness of a typical button.
Whilst you are measured for a custom shirt by Mel Gambert, every aspect of your physique and posture are taken into account.
Many other custom shirt makers only take basic measurements, but with Mel Gambert that is not the case, and your custom shirt becomes almost bespoke.
Each aspect of your shirt is chosen by you and these style options will be discussed in our next post.
