Scabal Made to Measure shirts
Starting in Winter 2008/2009 Scabal also offers made-to-measure shirts. The shirts are made at the top production houses in Italy.
There are more than 30 designs available in the Luxury Shirts bunch. As with the jacket and suit collections, the fabrics used must comply with the very highest standards. There are two qualities available, in different weights – both are made from superfine cotton fibres and are presented in a range of styles. Don’t forget to ask your tailor for a sample from this exceptional range.
In the Scabal Made To Measure shirt collection there is at least 350 fine fabrics to choose from at any time, starting with a fine 120’s two-ply cotton quality and going up all the way to superfine 200’s two-ply in Sea Island cotton. The range also includes 70/30 cotton/linen blends, 100% linens, and cottons with a touch of elastane for a slim-fitting profile. Fabric types include poplins, of course, plus twills, oxfords, end-on-ends (or fil-à-fils) and piques.
For this service, a customer puts on a trial shirt from which any alterations can be identified, measured and made. Some men require only small amendments, others a major restyling. Nothing is too much of a problem. The shirt length, the chest, the waist, the hips, the collar, the different sleeve lengths, the width of shoulders and the width of each cuff are all adjustable. There are five different cuff options and an astonishing 15 variations of collars to suit almost every requirement. Chest pockets are optional and, for the personal touch, initials can be sewn on to the shirt. All delivered in 3 weeks.
The fabrics and styles used by Scabal to create their made-to-measure shirts are also available in the ready-to-wear ranges. Another good reason why Scabal is an indispensable brand for your wardrobe.
