In Person: ratio/clothing custom shirts – $89.00 – $159.00
Consider this week of giveaways a thanks. Without your readership, your emails, your terrific comments, and your willingness to spread the word, Dappered wouldn’t exist. The collection of good guys who frequent this corner of the internet is by far the greatest achievement of this website. Good luck, and once again, thanks a million.
Go full custom and you risk screwing up a measurement and your shirt will be off. Stick with off the rack and you’ll never get a shirt that’s spot on in either fit or details. Ratio Clothing’s unique sizing method is the perfect mix of these two. You get the consistency of the off the rack measurements that you’re used to, in a much, MUCH higher precise form, which also takes into consideration your chest size, preferred length, and body fit. And you pick the details.
Much more precise, without going overboard and exposing you to self measurement errors.
Add on top of that the ability to customize the collar, cuffs, back pleats, placket, and pocket, and you’ll never have to settle on a shirt with a detail you’re not thrilled with. The quality is top notch. Fabrics, patterns, and colors cover everything from basics to chambray to gingham. And they’re made in the United States.

There aren’t a lot of companies or brands in men’s style that almost everyone agrees on. But ratio seems to be one of the rare few that has impressed just about all (see the original in person here). They’re a splurge, but what you get in return is well worth it. Forget the fancy house or the fast car. It’s fair to say you’ve made it when you’ve got a closet full of ratio shirts.
