Off-the-rack is so passé. Denver-based Ratio Clothing offers quality custom-made shirts at a fair price, all the while keeping manufacturing in a North Carolina factory—a union shop where employees earn a living wage. Fill out a brief survey to determine your best size (including whether you’ll wear the shirt tucked or untucked), then select your choice of collar, cuffs, placket, pocket and buttons. Their newest fabric offering—the Lindley Melange Twill—is a soft, textured fabric imported from Japan that subtly stands out with multi-colored specks woven throughout.
The Lindley Melange Twill is available in blue or gray with prices starting at $149; other Ratio dress shirts start at $98. You’ll have to make a quick decision regarding any shirt however: the cut-off date for guaranteed delivery by Christmas is Tuesday, 2 December 2015—since the factory employees need to spend time with their families, too.
