Glossy Gift Guide: A Made To Measure Shirt Box by Louis Copeland & Sons

Give the MAN IN YOUR LIFE a UNIQUE GIFT this Christmas with a Made To Measure Shirt Box …


There is something truly luxurious about a piece of clothing that is custom made for the wearer. And selecting and tailoring each element to create the perfect fit is a very special and enjoyable process, with exceptionally satisfactory results. Nothing ever fits – or looks – as well as a tailor-made piece does.

So here’s an idea we really like, from a famous Irish retailer. Synonymous with quality tailoring in Ireland, Louis Copeland & Sons has introduced a very clever gift for Christmas – a Made To Measure Shirt Box, essentially a beautifully presented invitation to the recipient to create a custom made shirt.

Inside the Made To Measure Shirt Box, customers will find an invitation card explaining the process, a tape measure and samples of the fabrics and buttons available to choose from. They simply make an appointment at any one of Louis Copeland’s five stores, at a time that suits them.

The expert tailors at Louis Copeland & Sons will be on hand to assist clients throughout the entire process, which begins by establishing the perfect size and fit for the customer, before choosing a one-of-a-kind combination of fabrics, patterns and colours to make their perfect shirt. There’s also an option to add a personalised monogram to the cuffs.

The Made To Measure process takes six weeks and when it’s ready, the customer will be invited back into store to collect his shirt. So it’s like two gifts in one, really. We are sold!

Buy the Made to Measure Shirt Box online (€249) from or at any one of the five Louis Copeland & Sons stores in Dublin including Capel Street, Wicklow Street, Pembroke Street and Dundrum Town Centre, and at Merchants Road in Galway.
