How long does it take to make a custom shirt?
It usually takes between 2 - 3 weeks depending on the size of the order. The production takes about 1 - 2 weeks, and then shipping takes about a half week more. It may take longer at peak times.
What's the best way to measure?
If you’re a busy person and you just want to get the process started as soon as possible, we highly recommend our Tailor Sizing™ method. Simply answer 8 questions as best you can and we’ll generate a custom size for you. Tailor Sizing™ leverages real master tailors' experiece and insight regarding fit, and is incredibly accurate. Generally speaking, this size method will work much much better than just selecting a standard size based on collar size, sleeve length and type of fit.

If you have a shirt that fits exactly how you want (or very close) and are comfortable following our instructions and using a measuring tape, then measuring a shirt you already have at home is a great way to create your first shirt size.

If you don’t have a shirt that fits exactly how you want and are comfortable following our instructions and having a friend help you out (Do not attempt this on your own!), then measuring your body at home is a great way to create your first shirt size.

Regardless how you create your first size, we’re here to work with you. Our Perfect Fit Guarantee is unrivaled and we will do whatever we can to make sure you’re happy with your fit. Furthermore, our staff is trained to assist with alterations via the phone or email and we’ll ensure a smooth process to correcting your shirt size if your first try is not absolutely perfect.

Is it ok to dry shirts in the dryer?
We recommend avoiding the dryer and letting the shirt air dry on a hanger, although (depending on the size of your house) this is not always practical. If you must put the shirt in a dryer, avoid high heat or over-drying the shirt. Use the dryer to get most of the moisture out of the shirt, and then iron the shirt immediately to remove the rest of the moisture and any wrinkles at the same time. If you dry your shirts completely in the dryer you’ll find the shirt a bit harder to iron perfectly, and they will likely shrink beyond Sons f Savile’s calculated shrinkage allowances.
Should I use starch when the shirt is pressed?
While many people do like to have their shirts starched, our suggestion is to avoid starch completely. While starch can help a broadcloth or oxford shirt appear more crisp it can also cause shirts to wear out prematurely. When the starch material gets embedded in the shirt fibers it acts like a million little knives that break down the fibers over time.
