If you’ve got a tape measure and a few minutes to ponder your options, you can have a short made just for you, courtesy of TukTuk Bespoke. And unlike other bespoke options, this one doesn’t need a bank loan either.
It’s the same TukTuk that does highly rated off-the-peg shirts, only this time they’ll mae a shirt just for you. All you need is that tape measure and someone to measure you – the site tells you exactly what ‘bits’ you need to measure via a downloadable guide.
After that, you choose your cloth, choose your details, including buttons and collar – there are a couple of ‘mod’ button-down options for the latter, but you can go more extreme and opt for something like a spoon collar instead. Once your detailing is selected, make a payment and in no time at all (7-14 days), you should have a shirt made just for you, not for some mythical small, medium or large person.
The price if a bespoke short is £89, although we have negotiated a 10 per cent discount code if you want to try it (enter MOD at checkout). A couple of examples are pictured on these pages, but more are listed on the Facebook Gallery.
I’ll be ordering one or two myself, so expect a full review soon. We should be doing a competition to give some away too – so watch out for that in the near future as well.
