To The Nines

Spier and MacKayWhat It Is: Today’s post isn’t so much a what, but a who? Spier & Mackay is an Ontario-based men’s retailer that carries all matter of clothing – from tailored suits and trousers to belts and ties. Their pricing is pretty awesome to begin with, but what really caught my eye is their online custom shirt tool. Now you can design a custom dress shirt for as little as $69, if you buy three at a time (regular price is $89). The design tool is really easy and comprehensive, giving you control over everything from the shirt collar to the fabric to the cuff type. You can also make it super personal by embroidering the shirt with the lucky gift recipient’s initials. So suave!

Who It’s For: Your son, who is just about to start his first office job. Your husband, as a lovely anniversary present. Your dad, because he knows the value of a nice dress shirt.

What It Costs: $69-$89 for a custom shirt (in most cases).

Where It’s At: Spier & Mackay is online, but they can also be visited in-person in their Mississauga shop.

    Sharp looking shirts.

    I think this is great – my boyfriend has a great eye and I’m sure would love to put his own touch on his clothing!

  5. Anne Derkat says:

    What a neat idea. What man wouldn’t love a customized shirt.

  6. Karen says:

    It is difficult to find shirts that are perfect, this is great.

  7. Aimee says:

    I would definitely use this. It’s hard to find dress shirts with a French cuff

  8. Lindsey says:

    My brother might like this but he is pretty picky about his shirts.

  9. cookie3 says:

    I think it’s great. What a super idea for a great fit & getting the exact style that you might want/

  10. Susan says:

    I think this is a great idea. It seems like a reasonable price for a custom made shirt.

  11. Mary warner says:

    The price is immpressive.

  12. kiraali says:

    This sounds like an EXCELLENT gift idea, particularly when someone is an unusual size.

  13. nicolthepickle says:

    I like the idea a lot, but my dear husband would just think it’s a waste.

  14. Susan Patterson says:

    I think it would be very nice, however I find it to be a little bit too pricey – thank you!

  15. Alison K says:

  16. Sherry K says:

    This would be a perfect gift for my son. He is so tall and thin, a custom made shirt would be just the thing.

  17. Jessica e says:

    i think my husband would love it!

  18. Debra says:

    I think this is perfect for those men who want to be stylish, but have a hard time finding the right size for them in regular stores.

  19. Betty S says:

    Perkse Coffee & Tea bonus entry: I think this custom gift idea would be great for all the men in my life, they enjoy looking stylish

  20. janicour says:

    My husband would be interested, as he can never get the sleeves long enough on over the counter goods.

  21. Victoria Ess says:

    These look nice but I think it will be so hard to get the size right online!

  22. lewisandtaylorshirts says:

    you could use an online shirtmaker such as who use 10 body measurements to get the right size

  23. Ellie Buonvivere says:

    I love this idea as you are truly giving a give that is tailored to fit the recipient! Who wouldn’t like a custom fit shirt? The price doesn’t seem expensive when you consider most higher end shirts, off the rack cost this much.
