Recently I have been upgrading my wardrobe, getting rid of old tee-shirts, giving away shirts that don’t fit (translation: ones I have been holding on “till I fit in them again”) and just dressing a little sharper. Off the rack shirts are ok but if it fits my shoulders loosely it is always too long or if it is tight it is usually too short. One of the things I found while cleaning was a custom, tailor made long coat from my late twenties. I remember the tailor coming out, taking our measurements and then the final fitting before he sewed it all together. It fit perfectly and looked great so when I saw this app advertised called MTailor that guaranteed me a tailored fit – their site states 20% more accurate than an actual tailor- for my shirts (they also do sport coats, suits and pants) I was skeptical to say the least. I mean how can the camera on your phone get video good enough that someone 2000 miles away could custom fit a shirt to your body? Well they can and they did. I received two great fitting shirts that are now a part of my wardrobe and I plan to order more.
I have now worn them several times over the past month and am pleased with them. They are comfortable, durable, wash well and look great. Much to my surprise I received an email about a week or so after I received them asking how I liked them and I replied I would have liked an inch more in length and maybe a ½ in in the chest and shortly after my phone rang and I was talking to a representative who wanted to know if I wanted to return those shirts for new ones. I didn’t so they just added the extra inches to my measurements for my next order. That’s customer service.
So, I guess the phones are going to rule the world one day as they are seemingly taking over everything. But this app did what it said. They ship for free, they offer a full money back guarantee, the shirts are priced at a great price point for a custom made, tailored shirt – they start at $60 for short sleeve to $89 for long sleeve, great customer service and it’s easy. MTailor.com is my new go to for shirts and at some point, I will try their suits and/or jeans.
