We’ll make a shirt and guarantee a perfect fit. If not fully satisfied, we’ll alter or replace the first shirt at no charge. Once we find the perfect fit, we’ll save your updated details for easy re-ordering.
If your new shirts fit slightly differently than your old ones, the most likely explanation is they need to be “broken in.” We encourage washing and wearing the shirts several times.
If immediate adjustment is required, we ask that you loan us your best-fitting older shirt in addition to returning the new shirts. This will allow us to measure the older shirt and determine your preferred measurements.
Your corresponding online size depends on the label in your existing shirt. Please click here for details.
Succinctly, the difference is the degree of customization.
With our Made-To-Order tool, customers can customize the Fit and Style of the shirt with selected fabrics.
Our Bespoke Shirts allows customers to create fully custom shirts down to the smallest details, from fit to fabric to collar, cuff, buttons, monograms, and more. Our Bespoke Shirts are available exclusively at our Houston Store or a Hamilton Stockist. For first-time Bespoke purchases, there is a minimum order of five shirts. There is no order minimum on repeat purchases.
While Hamilton Bespoke Shirts are not available for purchase online, all fabrics and styles online are available at our Houston Storefront or a Hamilton Stockist.
If we have your measurements on file, simply call us, and we’ll make your shirts just the way you like them.
We suggest commercial laundering without starch. If a specific fabric requires dry cleaning, this will be indicated on the shirt care tag. Federal law does not allow us to suggest “commercial laundering” on shirt care tags.
For this reason, the care tag reads, “Machine wash cold, line dry, do not bleach.” This is also an acceptable form of shirt care; however, we have observed that shirts shrink more when washed at home as opposed to commercially laundering.
Your collar has been specially constructed to avoid excessive shrinkage after many launderings. For this reason, we prefer not to glue or fuse the interlining to the collar fabric.
If hand ironing, press from the tips of the collar up and towards the center. Do not press towards the tips of the collar, or the fabric may crease against the seam.
If you are consistently having issues with fabric creasing on your collars, you may want to consider fused lining. Although not recommended due to excessive shrinkage, we will use fused lining upon request.
Collars and cuffs consist of an interlining sewn between two pieces of fabric. It’s this interlining that provides the necessary structure and weight. Most shirtmakers choose to fuse (glue) the interlining to the fabric because it is an easy way to ensure the shirt looks crisp when new.
The downside to fusing is that the shirt continues to shrink with each laundering as the glue contracts. It requires greater care and skill to construct an excellent non-fused collar. Non-fused shirts do not shrink after initial launderings.
Although not recommended due to the excessive shrinkage, we will use fused lining upon request.
The answer depends on many factors, so it’s best to contact one of our Shirtmakers regarding your specific situation. Here are some general guidelines:
Non-Hamilton products will be accepted for alterations on a case-by-case basis. A customer must provide a credit card for us to keep on file, and an associate will provide a cost estimate at the time of fitting. Please note this is only an estimate, and the final cost cannot be determined until the work is complete. Factors determining cost and Hamilton’s ability to perform requested alterations may include:
Please note that alterations are “best efforts” only. Garments may be damaged during the alteration process, and Hamilton will not provide any reimbursement for the cost of the garment being altered.
Hamilton will cover the cost of alterations up to $100 per garment.
