I understand that sometimes it’s difficult to picture what the finished product will look like when getting something custom made.
This may help. Here are a few images of a custom shirt from start to finish.
(as a swatch, a finished product and then on a real person)
This fabric is from the J.Hilburn British Invasion Collection (Fall/Winter ’10) and it’s one of my favorites.
It’s so soft and fantastic and there are several colors to choose from; you will find a color that looks good on you!
As a swatch: (some people are more visual than others; to get a better idea of it as a full shirt, place the fabric on your arm, it helps you picture what it will look like on you)
As the finished product: (By the way, this has an English Cutaway collar, very modern, very stand out. :))
(Quick note: Dev Patel is wearing the same shirt—different collar—except his is from Ermeneglido Zegna.)
J.Hilburn – custom $99.
Zegna – off the rack $349
