DIY Tailoring

"I don't wanna be a pirate"

Finding shirts that fit me both in long arms and narrow torso is pretty difficult. Usually, off the rack shirts are puffy and look terrible on me.

Some companies make "fitted" shirts. Sometimes this is fitted enough and sometimes it is not. Today, I looked up online how to take in a dress shirt and tried it out. I'm very happy with the results. Check out the before and after...


I did not stuff the shirt with newspaper or anything else to make it look extra puffy.


note: the pants are different, the pants in the before pic I bought from J Crew for $60, the pants in the after pic are Dockers that I got for $6.99 at the Thrift Store.
