Ratio Clothing | Custom Dress Shirts

May 2, 2012

The custom dress shirt is often considered an opulent option for most men so we continue to pick between S, M, L, XL or settle for neck and arm measurements for our shirting. And while these methods will usually get you a suitable shirt, for the majority of body types it is a far cry from a precise fit anywhere but around the neck and sleeve length. And while theoretically most men would prefer custom made clothing, the idea of a shirt made uniquely for “me” can be seen as both expensive and excessive.

Ratio Clothing is out to convince men otherwise with their own spin on the custom dress shirt. Taking five measurements into account (Neck, Sleeve, Chest, Shirt Length & Shirt Width) Ratio then crafts a custom shirt (here in the U.S.) with features like single needle stitching and trim fitting sleeves. Offering a wealth of fabric options (broadcloth, poplin, oxford, pinpoint and twill), Ratio also lets you customize collar (English Spread, Semi-Spread & Button-Down), cuffs (Barrel, Two-Button & French), back pleats (Center, Side or None), pocket and placket.

Add that with an abundance of patterns to choose from (solids, stripes, checks, ginghams and plaids) and Ratio basically gives a man the freedom to create his own shirt. And while all those options can seem a bit daunting, few other shirting manufacturers give you full control like Ratio. Ranging from $89 to $125, their shirts also won’t break the bank.

    So what’d you think of the shirt? Or is that a stock photo?

      No, not a stock photo.

      It’s a great shirt. Not tons more to say other than I liked having the freedom to choose from all the customization options. It showed up exactly as I ordered it and has washed and worn well.

    Yeah, I placed an order using their $25 off FB discount and have heard other good things. For ~$70 it really can’t be beat. Did you get either of the pleats on the back or go with the flat option?

    The customized made shirts can be a little expensive as when compared to all set manufactured shirts but they will definitely in shape you correctly according to your measurement.

    How does the yoke line up with the pattern?

    Or I should say, how does the yoke line up with the pattern on the sleeves?
