I doubt very much if Paris Custom Shirts would make a mail order shirt for any one individual they hadnt made one up for in person. Although i respect the niche that jantzen exists in and I dont think it is necessarily a bad thing at all, a true custom shirt maker would never take your measurements from a distance without being to size you up and make adjustments. That is because no two people of the same measurement are ever truly the same in terms of displacement and individual indiosyncracies of the torso, neck and face. A custom shirtmaker needs to make decisions as to how to design, cut and sew that will enhance your body, your way of life and flatter your face.

Again, sending measurements doesnt make it a bad thing, its just matter of separating the true custom shirt maker from a special order factory. However, for those who want to get their feet wet with the fun of choosing fabric, color/pattern and collar styles for a lot less, it is a good first step. I would imagine fad fabrics are excellent to experiment with this way.
