manuel racim custom shirts

ed and i headed downtown to manuel racim in tribeca this past weekend to spend a snowy afternoon thumbing through shirt fabrics and buttons and such. they specialize in custom shirts for men, be it dressy or casual, and the options are endless as you choose your own fabric, fit (slim, extra slim, etc), collar, cuffs, buttons, and stitching. whew!

measurements are stored in their online system to make future ordering a breeze-- if you ever get past the remote controlled panel of endless italian-milled fabrics.

shirts are sewn from beginning to end in the western part of france and ready to be picked up in 2-3 weeks.

i admit given ed's towering stature, he will likely realize his off-the-rack dress shirts are a bit lacking compared to a new made-to-measure. i also admit that custom shirting is an expensive route to go about building a wardrobe, though i found that manuel racim's prices were very competitive compared to other bespoke shops in the city.

a mirrored wall on the left side of the store converts to a digital screen in which to view your shirt as you mull over button choices.

perhaps the perfect splurge for valentine's day?!

disclosure: ed's custom shirt was a gift from manuel racim, though we would (both) recommend the brand without hesitation. 

ps: shopping for the tall guys.
