Orginial Stitch part 2 of Design your own shirt

Last month I did a review for Original Stitch, but I wasn’t able to tell you anything more than how I created it and ordered it. I have now received the dress shirt and can tell you more about it. It was a blast making it and I will probably designing more in the future. You can go and read my original review if you would like.

I have ordered dress shirts before and usually is in a regular boxes, wrapped in plastic and not a whole lot of care put into it. I can tell that Original stitch puts more time and care into packaging. It was folded and wrapped up and was in a clothing gift box. It looked more like something I would have had put together at a higher end clothing store.

Sometimes it’s hard to get a good feel for a color palette just off the screen but i was confident that I had done a good job. I had the outside of the collar white, the inside of both and the inside of the button area a plaid and the main part of the shirt a nice gray. Seeing it all put together in person was really cool. I design websites, I have never designed a dress shirt. It was awesome seeing it come to life.

After I was done designing it, I was then instructed to do the measurements. So when Darin put on the shirt, it fit perfect. Why?, because it was made specifically for him. It wasn’t made for anyone that is around those numbers.

This is now his favorite dress shirt, and has gotten a lot of feedback from wearing it at church and also a speaking engagement at a graduation. He wore it un-tucked with jeans, which I think was perfect. Yes, it’s a dress shirt but it can also be worn a little more casual.

It takes a few weeks to receive your shirt after you order, since it is custom made and being shipped from Japan, so please keep that in mind when ordering. Shirts are all priced differently depending on the base fabric you choose and so forth, but the prices are set to be very competitive with other companies, plus it’s a one of a kind.
