We love to hear feedback and requests from our customers.
Today, we're happy to announce that we've made a change that will address the most popular request: Taller collars on dress shirts.
Some customers noticed that ties tended to peak out from under the side and rear of their shirt collars. To address this, we've divided our custom tailored shirts into two collections: Dress Shirts and Casual Shirts.
Dress Shirts now feature taller, 1-3/4" collars as measured at the back of the neck. This allows them to stand up taller under a suit jacket and hide better the neck loop of the tie. These shirts look equally great with or without a tie.
Casual Shirts are handcrafted with the same 1-1/2" rear collar height you're used to from Snap Tailor. These shirts are designed to be worn without a tie.
Want to order a shirt from the Casual Shirt collection with a taller collar? No problem, just request a taller collar in the Special Instructions textbox right next to the Add to Cart button. Want to order a shirt from the Dress Shirt collection with a shorter, more casual collar? Yep, use the Special Instructions textbox.
You may also notice the Dress Shirts collection features office-friendly patterns, while the Casual Shirts collection features bolder patterns. Other than that, tailor made shirts from both collections are made to the same discerning standard you've come to expect from Snap Tailor, including French Seams.
We hope you love the change. If you have any feedback or questions, reach out! We'd like to hear from you. See the Contact Us section at the bottom of this page.
It's really cold in most parts of the country right now, which means it's the perfect time to add a wool tie to your look.
When you're adding layers to stave off the cold, "you don't want some floppy silk tie" says Jim Moore over at GQ.
"A wooly tie is great for business." But it's versatility goes way beyond the office. "It can be your best friend with a white shirt, it can go with a bold plaid shirt, it can go with a stripe shirt."
In this video, Jim gives us some style advice on how to wear a wool tie:
Clip-on bow ties, while an amazing technological breakthrough, look too perfect and are easy to sniff out. The slight misalignment and different size of the left and right bows show that you are a gentleman who takes dressing well seriously. Plus, you'll be able to untie the bow tie at the end of the night and let it drape gloriously over your chest.
Of course, tying a bow tie is not something most guys have a lot of experience in. However, with a little practice, it becomes as automatic as tying a four-in-hand knot.
The best way to learn to tie a bow tie is to do it yourself, but with a little help. If you don't have a friend nearby who can help, a how-to video is the next best option.
The Snap Tailor staff has scoured the internet for the best how to tie a bow tie video, and this is it. It's a bit fast, so you may have to rewind it a few times. However, it's straight to the point and does a good job of showing you the key maneuvers.
