About Made to Measure
For nearly two centuries, Brooks Brothers has tailored the wardrobes of countless presidents and politicians, actors and entertainers, authors and business leaders. When Brooks Brothers opened its first store in 1818, the only way to obtain clothing was to have it custom made. It wasn’t until the mid 1800’s that Brooks Brothers introduced the "Ready Made" suit to America but even then, our most discerning customers still demanded that garments be made individually for them.
Today, we continue that tradition by offering a wide range of Special Order programs to our customers. Whether you are looking for a greater range of colors, patterns, or fabric qualities, or if you have a specific model in mind, or you appreciate certain options and details not found in most in stock garments, Brooks Brothers can create a garment for you to fit your needs.
Brooks Brothers has always prided itself in offering its customers the finest fabrics combined with our world famous make. Add those qualities to innovations like our all cotton non-iron shirts and you will have no doubt as to why we stand alone in offering incomparable value to our customers. In our Made-to-Measure program, we combine the efficiencies of modern technology with the detailing of hand tailoring to create a superior, personalized dress shirt.
Today, we proudly offer both our state-of-the-art non-iron fabrics and traditional finish, pure cotton luxury cloths. Our unparalleled selection of fabrics, fits, models and details ensure a fine dress shirt crafted for you alone.
