Be your own designer with made-to-measure shirts from Marks and Spencer


M&S have launched a brand new made-to-measure shirt service through their website and it’s fun fun fun!
You have a range of options to choose from. The first is the type of fabric, which seems to dictate the price (£30-£49.50 – bargain!). Next up you choose features such as collar and cuffs, hem and placket (one of my favourite words incidentally). You can also select a Monogram of your choice, but I think that’s a bit poncey myself. Finally you choose between three fits: slim, traditional and tailored.
All you have to do then is to enter your height, weight, collar-size and age and the clever people at M&S use a unique algorithm to create a shirt tailored to fit you.

Obviously this isn’t the same made-to-measure service you’d get in Saville Row. If you’ve got long gorilla-arms or a pigeon-chest, I don’t suppose they’ll be able to work that out from the scant information you’ve provided. Still, it will be a lot more personal and comfortable than an off the shelf shirt.
Between this and the ads with Twiggy and Erin, Marksey’s are really spoiling us this Christmas.

    Featured at Modculture some weeks back. Note that this isn’t really tailored – unless someone from M&S comes round to your house with a tape measure after you order?

    Fabric choice is pretty pants too.
