Made to measure hoodies - any companies that specialize in them?

    So maybe I'm weird, but since I started getting my jackets tailored I'm getting more picky about the fit of my streetwear. I'm lean, with slightly longer arms - usually wear a 15 3/4 neck shirt with 34/35 arms.

    So I like my hoodies to fit close to the body, but to find that I've had to buy hoodies in size medium and small - which have sleeves that are too short.

    Anyone out there making made to measure hoodies? Would be cool to choose your own fabric and details as well.

    Not that I've ever heard. It sounds like a waste of tailoring.

    Get some hoodies that fit almost the way you like and just have the body taken in if blousiness bugs you. That will still be boatloads cheaper than bespoke hoodies.

    Good idea actually - smacking myself for not having thought of that first.

    Bespoke hoodies are great! I was in a car crash a few months ago and had to get a good chunk of my rib cage removed, along with my right arm.

    So you can imagine my hoodies started to fit a bit strangely. And since hoodies are all I wear, you can also imagine I was desperate for a solution. Almost as desperate as I was for people to love me in my new disfigured state.

    I have an excel spreadsheet of bespoke hoodie services, which I'll send to you as soon as I learn to use a left-handed mouse. Stay tuned.

    Yeah, I have physical therapy all this week, and there's still a bit of numbness in my hands, but once that's all done I'll send it over
