How are you going to get tailor made shirts if you don't go and get them tailored??

Or do you simply mean good quality?

I use these guys: http://dickandtreems.com/

Once they have your measurements, you can order online. You'll need to call them to find out if you can meet a tailor in your area.

You can also try Black Lapel.

Same deal, you send in measurements, they send back suits/shirts/pants whatever. Whatever you pay in customs charges, they'll pay you back and prices seem reasonable.

I use http://www.andrewandwalker.com

You can send in your own measurements, but I believe Andrew is in Switzerland this week (he comes a few times a year), so you could get properly measured.

Re: Tailor made shirts delivered in CH?

There is a Hong Kong tailor coming to Zürich on a quarterly basis.
He does all the measurement and fitting in Zürich in a hotel or at your premises/office and shirts and suits are made and shipped from HK soon after.

Don't have any experience with him myself but heard many good things about the man.

By providing the measurements through the website

The trick is to make sure you're professionally measured or at least measured by someone who has a clue what they're doing. Too many times people measure themselves incorrectly and are not happy with the product that arrives. It's virtually impossible to get an accurate shoulder-to-wrist measurement on yourself, for example.

A friend of mine set up this company in Zürich a few years back: http://www.cloneyourshirt.com/

A colleague of mine also ordered some shirts and a few ties from these guys: http://www.itailor.com/

I myself have not yet ordered anything but colleagues who have, are very happy with quality, fit, styles & price.

Thank to everybody who already answered - I will study all these options

Re: Tailor made shirts delivered in CH?

Hi Annouchka

Taking your own measures and ordering online is tricky as 3Wishes said. Very difficult getting the fit right. I messed it up... If you do it this way, I would order only 1 test shirt first.
In case you want professional measures I can recommend www.stock11.ch.
Bought 3 shirts for about CHF 110.- each (November 2014 and just reordered 3 more). 3x more expensive than the ones I used to get in Hong Kong, but I am happy with service & quality.

[mod note - user is not affiliated with the company]

Re: Tailor made shirts delivered in CH?

You can entirely self measure for sure, I have been doing that for decades, but I tailor my own stuff. Something like this



I usually have my arm more bent when measuring, though.
Otherwise it is more comfortable to ask somebody to measure. Don't forget if you want to keep your shirt tucked in, you need it longer (I usually do not, hence it is shorter).

Otherwise, this book offers great info on making shirts and measurements:

Re: Tailor made shirts delivered in CH?

Hi all,
Many thanks to all for your advices.
At the end, I tried this website, launched by a friend of a friend:
https://www.tailorissimo.com/
And it was quite ok.
Nevertheless I'm curious to try others - will keep these addresses for next time!
Happy evening to all
