Your measurements on the Swann & Oscar made-to-measure shirt website are the cornerstone of your customer account. The sewing patterns that are saved to your account make it easy for you to re-order your shirts without taking new measurements each time you order. You should therefore pay particular attention when your measurements are taken.
When you order a shirt, after selecting all the options, you’ll reach the stage where measurements are taken.
At this stage, you have three options:
Regardless of which option you follow, the measurements will be converted to display a sewing pattern that reflects both the measurements that are taken and the style that you have selected.
In other words, simplified measurements, body measurements and measurements taken from an existing shirt will all result in a final sewing pattern.
Once your first order has been created, we will only retain the measurements used to create the shirt for you. This is what the sewing pattern will look like, regardless of the measuring method chosen when placing your order:
All adjustments made to this first shirt will be applied directly to your sewing pattern in order to make things easier and clearer. Accordingly, you’ll see a build-up of different versions of your sewing – in other words, showing the changes applied to your shirt style over time. Measurements that differ between versions are shown in bold text.
N.B.: You can only go back one stage in the history of your shirt pattern and therefore only the immediately preceding version can be applied to a shirt design. If you wish to revert to an older version, you need to create a “new version” of this pattern.
If you wish to use multiple sewing patterns at the same time – for instance, a short pattern for shirts to be worn outside your waistband, and another, longer version to be worn tucked in, you can use the “Create a new sewing pattern” button. This allows you to create a new pattern that will also change over time via the creation of different versions.
When you submit a confirmed order, we will check your measurements in order to ensure that there are no major errors. If required, we will make a few adjustments or contact you to check the measurements with you. These corrections will be saved for your future orders. If, despite everything, you are not fully satisfied with the fit of your shirt, you can return the first shirt that you order for us to make any adjustments that are required. These adjustments will also be saved for your future orders.
You can access all sewing patterns saved to your account at any time. To do so, log in to your account and click on “My measurements.” You will then see your pattern(s), and the following options will be available to you:
