Can tailors add collar pockets to my shirts?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I apologize if this topic already exists but I did an extensive search and found nothing relevant to my inquiry.

First of all, I love my Wurkin Stiffs (yes, you heard that right smile.gif. However, some of my shirts don't have collar pockets (especially those I ordered from Modern Tailor). Will it be possible for tailors to alter these shirts and add collar pockets?

Thanks and please excuse a newbie.

Rather an unhelpful post.

What is a "collar pocket" when it is at home and

Where do you expect the extra material to come from to create it?

I think he's referring to the little "pocket" of cloth under the tips of the collar that you slide collar stays into.

This sounds like it should be possible; you may need to use non-matching fabric for the extra piece that is required, but since it's on the under-side of the collar anyway nobody should be able to see it.

Thank you, that's what i was referring to.

I guess not all is lost, there's no harm in trying, i'll bring a few of my shirts to my tailor tomorrow and we'll see what happens.

Thanks y'all, will post an update if I can.

Of course, if you're ordering shirts from Modern Tailor, they have an option for removable collar stays. In future, just specify that and you're good. Never tried to retrofit a shirt with them, though. Good luck with that. I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard. Hardest part will be matching the shirt fabric after the fact.

I am aware that MT does have the option for removable collar stays, but I opted out because I thought I would only be wearing them WITH a tie. Now, I would like to wear them WITHOUT a tie and wanted the collar pockets.

Also, I really don't mind if the shirt fabric and the collar pocket match because nobody should be able to see it anyhow smile.gif

Any update? What did your tailor say?

I'll share this in case someone has the same question. I talked to my tailor and he said he never adds this pocket BUT he adds some really small buttons that keep the collar in place
