Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here you can find the questions most commonly asked by our customers. They are divided into different categories for faster and easier navigation.

Placing an order

   + I just placed an order but realized that I want to change some details. What do I do?

Please write an email to our customer support directly and let us know which changes you would like to make. As orders can go in production quite quickly, it is important that you do this as soon as possible so we can apply the changes to the order before the fabric for your garments is cut.

   + I would like to order a present for another person. What should I do?

To make sure that the order is being placed correctly, please change the address details in your profile to the address of the person that you would like to send the present to. This is especially important if you want to order for somebody living in another country than you, considering that different currencies and VATs are affected. Please change the address details first back to your own address after the parcel has been dispatched.

   + What is the fastest way to order a gift certificate?

We offer you the option for a downloadable gift certificate if the amount for the order is paid at the same time when the order is placed. Just choose Download as the delivery method and the gift certificate will be available as a pdf-file after the order has been placed. We also automatically send you an email containing the file to the email address stated in your profile. If you order a present for somebody living in another country, please keep in mind to change to that country in order to get the correct currency on the gift certificate.

   + I designed an great shirt/pair of chinos/etc. in my last order. How do I order with the same measurements and design without having to start from scratch?

This is a simple one: just log in onto your customer account and go to your previous orders. Click on the garment that you want to re-order and the option Load shirt/chinos/etc. into designer will appear. Click on that and your garment appear in the designer. Now you can change any details in design and measurement as well or just put the garment in your shopping cart straight away. Please note that not always all fabrics and design option will be available - in this case a pop-up window will appear to inform you about this.

Ethics

   + Where are your custom-made garments produced?

We produce all custom-made products in a tailor shop owned and operated by us in Sri Lanka. All personnel is employed by us and we therefore have full overview of working conditions, salaries, environmental conditions etc. As a consequence, we can guarantee that all production processes are carried out under fair and well-managed conditions.

   + Where do the fabrics come from?

We are currently buying fabrics from leading suppliers in India, China and Sri Lanka. All of our suppliers have agreed and signed our Code of Conduct. Read more [PDF].

Claims and Returns

   + I just unpacked my garment and it has some stains on it. What do I do?

It can happen that there are remains of tailor’s chalk left on the garment and in some cases patterns from the ironing process. Please wash the garment once according to the washing instructions inside without using any extra treatment or bleach. Should there still be a stain afterwards, please send us a picture of it to our customer service so we can investigate this further.

   + I ordered a garment and it does not fit. What should I do?

As for all garments that can be washed according to the care instructions inside the garment, please wash it first. We add a certain amount of fabric during production to adjust for the shrinkage that occurs during the first few washes. If you have ordered for the first time or with new or changed measurements, please send us some pictures of you wearing the garment (rear and front). Stand upright and relaxed with both your arms hanging loosely from the sides.

   + I would like to make a return. What do I do?

Since all our shirts, chinos, polo shirts, underwear, suits and coats are made to order from your design and your measurements (even those that are design suggestions) these cannot be sold to anyone else and cannot be returned. If it is your first order you can use our fit guarantee. Please send a couple of pictures of yourself wearing the garment (front and back) to our customer services department. Stand straight with your arms relaxed and include a message describing your problem.

The Tailor Store Size:Me app

+ What is the Size:me application for smartphones?

The Tailor Store Size:Me app helps you get started with made-to-measure clothing in the easiest and fastest way possible. With just two photos, your height and your weight, the Size:Me body scanner calculates all your measurements as precisely as a professional tailor with a tape measure. The Size:Me body scanner is available at the App Store and Google Play Store and is completely free to download and use. Once installed, simply follow the instructions, and we’ll take care of the rest.

+ Hur fungerar Size:Me-appen?

Install the Size:Me application on your smartphone and follow the easy step-by-step instructions. The app will access your smartphone camera and ask you to take two photos. Following that, you will be asked to provide your height and weight details. The app will then automatically send the pictures and information to Tailor Store. From this a Size:Me profile will be created for you to use when you order a Tailor Store shirt.

+ How exact are the measurements?

Tailor Store have developed an algorithm that uses your photos, height and weight to achieve highly accurate measurements. Head to head tests have shown these are comparable to measurements taken by a professional tailor.

+ How should I stand when Size:Me takes the photos?

Stand straight, relaxed and with your torso in a natural position.

+ How should I be dressed when Size:Me takes the photos?

We recommend you wear fitted clothes that clearly show the outline of your body.

+ Why do I need to give you my height and weight?

These details help our algorithm achieve precise measurement calculations. If necessary, feel free to estimate your weight — a few lbs difference does not impact the accuracy of your measurement profile.

+ When can I order my first made-to-measure dress shirt?

You can use your new measurement profile immediately.

+ How do I make my first order?

Your Size:Me profile can be used immediately. You can order directly on your smartphone. Alternatively, if you wish to complete your purchase on a computer (or tablet), log on, open the below web page and when prompted use the code provided within the Size:Me app to connect your profile.

+ Why can’t I see my measurements in the Size:Me profile?

Don’t worry. We will calculate your measurements when you use your profile to order a shirt. The algorithm will first calculate your body measurements and then the respective garment measurements. Leave everything to us, we guarantee your shirt will be perfect.

+ What happens if my garment does not fit?

In the unlikely event that your Size:Me shirt measurements are less than perfect, please contact Tailor Store customer service. One of our advisors will assist you in retaking your measurements, and arranging for a new complementary shirt to be made and sent to you.

+ Do you save my pictures?

Yes, your pictures will be saved for three months. Please contact customer service if you want us to remove them sooner.
