Finding a shirt that fits women perfectly isn’t easy, especially since most shirts that are spotted on mall racks aren’t cut to fit sizes. For those who don’t have the time to head to a tailor to get a shirt stitched, Bombay Shirt Company offers a brilliant option to customise one’s shirt-from collar to cuff details. Sadly, as much as men would like to make fun of women’s shopping abilities, this was a service that women couldn’t avail of, as the site catered only for men.

The good news for those who love customised outfits is that the site now offers this service for women too. Their first capsule ready-to-wear collection has been designed by stylist Archana Walavalkar. While the collection includes basic shirts (chequered, plain and stripes), what got us interested was the customising option.
We went through the process, and it’s as easy as child’s play. Once you select the cloth, there are simple instructions to select your style of collar, buttons, cuffs, bottom cut style, monogram and more. There are some advanced customisable options such as contrast collars, cuffs and buttonhole too. The site responds fast too, not once did it hang or get stuck between the million changes we tried to make in our shirt. And the best bit, you can key your exact measurements and get the shirt made.
We have Don Draper style perfect white shirts in mind, what about you?
