S/S’18 Shirts

If I haven’t already chewed your ear off about my ingenious Pattern Development Plan, just trust me that it’s ingenious, and it’s indeed a plan ;)


What you need to know right now is that we’ve spent the last six months working and re-working our shirt blocks (the shapes from which patterns are developed) in order to bring you this season’s


!!!Made to Measure Shirt Promotion!!!


Custom Shirts for R900


How it Works:

Step One: Prepare emotionally. You’re always welcome to drop in every Thursday between 8am and 8pm, or you can get in touch (benjaminsaccaggi@gmail.com / 073 345 1779) for an appointment weekdays between 8am and 5pm.


Step Two: Try on one of our standard-size shirts. We’ve made one in every size! We’ll then note the adjustments you’d like, and everything is up for discussion:

The fit of the collar, the length of the sleeves, how tight you’d like it to hug your body, the options are ENDLESS! You’ll also choose your fabric, of which we have a great selection ready for your perusal. And yes of course I can source you basically anything you want ;)


From here I can easily adjust our pattern due to the magic of made-to-measure technology. This means you can get a perfectly fitting shirt in the fabric of your choice in a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the cost of a custom garment. All you’ll need to do now is…


Step Three: Exercise patience ;) Since we became famous (have you NOT read the Gay Pages recently?) we’ve been drowning a little bit in fashion.

The turn-around for made-to-measure orders is generally two weeks, but I’ll be upfront with you if we need a little more time to ensure we provide you with a quality garment.




Hit me up in the comments if you have any questions, I look forward to bringing you some great shirts this season.


Frequently asked questions:

Are we also making shirts for ladies? F*CK NO!! Okay fine maybe, but they’ll have to be one of our standard shirts adjusted for you, and don’t complain if the buttons are left over right.

Can these shirts be purchased remotely? Yes, just pop me an email and we’ll talk specifics

How sustainable are these shirts? We’re making them to order, mainly from final roll fabric. Unfortunately I don’t really have details on where the retailers are getting their products. Construction-wise you won’t get shirts better made anywhere else, so they’ll last longer than anything you can buy off the rack.

Can you bring your own fabric? Yes, the fitting process will be the same, and the cost will now be R800. Just check with me in advance to make sure you have enough fabric.


The Studio is at 625 Levinia Street, Garsfontein, and open every Thursday from 8am to 8pm (no appointment needed), or weekdays 8am to 5pm by appointment. You can subscribe to this blog by hitting the follow button, and join the conversations going on on Facebook and Instagram.
