When you enter the custom clothing world things get overwhelming quickly; especially with shirts. The entire shopping process you know is flipped on its head. Instead of scouring the racks for something that sort of fits, in a color or pattern you kind of like, we help you build something that is uniquely yours and always in your size. But it can be overwhelming! We offer hundreds of fabrics and thousands of style/finishing combinations (some of our favorites here)! We promise it gets easier with time and guidance, but here is a quick primer on building “the basics” of your shirt collection.

Once upon a time everyone wore white…every day. While the sartorial world tries to forget that bygone age, in some nooks and crannies of the corporate world, boring conservatism still rules. We think you can bridge the gap. Whether you own one a single white shirt for special occasions or its a staple of your wardrobe, take back control and let us help you make it your own.

Everyone needs inspiration! Switching to a custom wardrobe can be both empowering and frightening. Some of our clients take naturally to the process of selecting swatches and dreaming up finishing details but for many it can be overwhelming. For years you have been trained to look to the racks for something to catch the eye but at Alabaster & Chess you are the lead designer!
