Most of the men that walk into Gentil Uomo can easily find a dress shirt that fits them perfectly – whether the fit is slim, contemporary or classic. However, we do have men that find it a bit of a challenge due to their size or shape to comfortably fit into a ready-made dress shirt. The solution? Our made-to-measure or as they say in Italian “su misura” service.
We also have men that do fit into a ready-made dress shirt but prefer custom because of the fabric and style choices and selections. I often tell our customers that with our custom service you are the designer. And you really are. Starting with our fabrics that come from the finest Italian mills, which are truly stunning!
Every detail of the dress shirt is up to you but we’re here to guide you and offer advice or suggestions that suit your individual taste. The style options are numerous. You choose the collar style, cuff, stitching, front, back, pocket, as well as contrast patterns for your collar, cuff and placket if you so desire to go that route. And don’t forget the final touches like monograms. There really are so many options available that the dress shirt is designed to your unique tastes. After all, Gentil Uomo in Italian means ‘gentleman’ – singular. We strive to accommodate every gentleman’s individual taste.
You may be thinking that our made-to-measure service seems like a daunting task. Trust me, it’s not. I walk you through the process step-by-step and before you know it we’re all done. We schedule a private appointment which includes detailed measurements and usually you’re done in about an hour – depending on the number of dress shirts you’re designing. The manufacturing process takes about 3 weeks plus you have a fitting during this timeframe to ensure the dress shirt fits you perfectly. As well, if it’s a challenge for you to come to us, not to worry, I’ll be glad to come to you to make the process that much easier for you. I look forward to seeing you. Alla prossima – until next time. Arrivederci.
