The India-based label has opened its first atelier in Dubai

United Arab Emirates, January 8, 2018

When it comes to stylish menswear, a well-fitting shirt can make all the difference. And made-to-measure is a sure-fire way to fill your wardrobe with a range of fabrics, colours and styles that are all tailored to suit your proportions and personality. Enter Bombay Shirt Company.

The popular Indian brand recently opened its first atelier in the UAE, at Central Park Towers in Dubai. A quick look through the Design Your Own Shirt tab on the brand’s website offers a glimpse ofn what you can expect at the DIFC studio. First there’s the fabric – more than 1,000 types in just as many colours, including poplin, satin Japanese linen and herringbone. You can also choose weaves that come in all manner of checks, stripes, prints and motifs.

Next, pick from the 15 types of collars on offer, from the classic spread pattern and cutaway collar to traditional bandhgala and contemporary skinny style.

Have a play with the cuffs (single-convertible, double-button, French), plackets (pencil, concealed, French front) and monogram options, as well as sleeve and pocket styles, and buttons and elbow patches.

And best of all, once the master tailor at the DIFC studio takes down your measurements (which you can also input online), they become part of a central database, which means Bombay Shirt Company can deliver your light grey reversible dobby, complete with a concealed polo collar, Neapolitan cuff and rounded bottom cut, straight to your doorstep. Prices start from Dh400.
