One size doesn’t fit all.
Hell, four sizes don’t even fit all.
Alternative: go bespoke at the expense of money and time.
Better alternative: Stantt, a new Manhattan-based shirting outfit that uses a patent-pending technology called Datafit to create quality tailored shirts at a price tag that won’t burn a wallet-shaped hole in your pocket.
Founders Matt Hornbuckle and Kirk Reel used 3D body-scan data from more than 1,000 men to create their custom sizing tool. It takes three variables into account: chest size, waist size and sleeve length. The result is an uber-convenient collection of 17 shirt styles in 75 sizes — each and every one of ‘em named after a street in NYC.
So whether you’re an Essex, Broadway or Carmine, say goodbye to billowy fits, sleeve-rolling, boxy shoulders and — best of all — dressing rooms.
How it works:
Take three simple measurements at home. (Don’t have a tape measure? They’ll send you one.)
Choose from an array of fabrics and colors, with casual and formal styles available
Wait 7-10 days for your gear to arrive
At a flat $98 a pop for 100% Egyptian cotton, it’s a risk worth taking — ‘cept without the risk. In addition to free shipping, Stantt offers free returns and exchanges, no third-degree interrogation necessary.
