Many of our customers are looking for something unique and individual. As small scale makers Elgar shirts cannot compete with the high street on either price or for fast changing fashion. So we offer the garments and the services that they cannot provide.
We are happy to make specials orders for our customers. We like to know what people want and it helps us to extend our range. So, if you require extra inches, or a smaller cut, we can help. If it is special fabric or styles, then we may well be able to help.
To have a garment made to your requirement or size, please contact us, providing us with your telephone number so we can ring to discuss your requirement.
Made to measure approx. £5.00 extra
If you are a non-stock size we can cut and make any of our products to fit you. We prefer to measure you ourselves. If that isn’t possible, get a friend to measure you accurately. We will ask for any additional information that may help us to gauge your shape.
