Do I have to enter my measurements every time I want to purchase a garment? + -

No, just insert your anatomical measurements during the first purchase or let our sales executive enter them for you during an appointment. They will remain stored in your Personal Profile (“Measurements” section) and will be used by our modelers to make all your garments.

Do the inserted measurements apply to all the products you offer? + -

Yes, once you enter your anatomical measurements, we will be able to package all our products.

How can I be sure that my measurements are correct? Is it difficult? + -

Our tutorial is designed to get a precise result of your measurements in a few minutes.

If you have any doubts or want assistance, feel free to contact our customer service ( or join us by appointment (currently possible in Delhi NCR only.)

Can I check and / or change my measurements? + -

Yes, your anatomical measurements can be modified in your personal profile (“Measurements” section) until the first purchase, after which they will be saved and locked in order to enable us to make your garments. If you would like to change your measurements after receiving the first order or if you would like to receive the details of your saved measures, please contact our customer service (

Can I enter the measurements of an existing item? + -

No, we cannot apply the measures of an existing garment to our models, since they are constructed differently. We will work on your anatomical measurements to get the most correct fit for you. If you want to give us more information after entering your anatomic measurements, you can contact our customer service (

How can I make extra requests? + -

Use the “Notes” field available before check-out to enter any additional requests or indications (e. g. “high waist”). Remember that you may be contacted for any clarifications; please, check the e-mail box matched to your registration e-mail address. 



The item I received is fine, but I would like to update some measures before my next order. + -

If you need to make some changes to your measurements, contact our customer service ( In order to better understand your needs, you will be asked to send 3 photographs (front, side, back) of the garment worn in a natural position. If you already know the exact changes you intend to make, please indicate them in your message. We will give you confirmation as soon as the data in the profile will be updated.

The garment I received does not fit me as I wish. What can I do? + -

If you feel that your garment needs some adjustments, write us at within 30 days of receiving the garment or from the day when the order was received, attaching at least 3 photos (front, side, back) in which you wear the garment you would like to change.

For more information, visit the Alterations and exchanges section.

I do not like the fabric of the garment I received, what can I do? + -

We are constantly investing to offer a description and a photographic representation of the products as realistic as possible. Despite this, due to the digital rendering of images on the web, the various light settings of the screens or other external conditions, it is still possible that the representation of online products is not completely in conformity with reality. 

Currently, the return of a garment that does not reflect the customer’s tastes is not allowed.

Will the garments shrink after washing? + -

It is possible that after the first wash, the fabric of shirts and polo shirts shrinks a little in a variable way depending on the fabric. In most cases this does not compromise the wearability of the garment, but helps the fabric and the structure of the garment to settle. We suggest you to wash your garment at least once before evaluating the final fit of the item.

Can I return my order? + -

If you are not completely satisfied with your order, you can request a full refund following our cancellation policy. Check the requirements and follow the instructions in the Alterations and exchanges section, contacting our customer service in advance (



Is a wool fabric also wearable in summer? + -

Wool fabrics are also suitable for the warmer seasons thanks to the thermoregulation properties of the fibers. To find out which fabrics are best suited for the summer season, apply the “Season: Spring/Summer” filter.

Why are some fabrics more expensive than others? + -

Each fabric has its own peculiarities: some factors such as – for example – the type of fiber or the fineness or the workmanship can make a fabric particularly valuable and therefore more expensive than others.

What do the parameters fineness, value, weight and heat mean? + -

Fineness: indicates the average diameter of the fiber used for the yarn. The higher the value, the finer and more precious the fiber is. Fabrics with a high fineness can be particularly delicate and need more attention and care.

The fineness of the wool is commonly indicated according to a “super” classification system, with values ​​between 100’s and 250’s:

  • 100’s – 140’s: resistant wool, excellent for making men’s clothes for everyday use
  • > 150’s: wool used for incredibly fine fabrics, valuable and exceptionally soft
  • > 160’s: ultrafine wool, excellent for creating light and extremely luxurious fabrics, which however require specific treatments due to their delicacy

The fineness determines the value and use of a wool, but cannot be considered as an exclusive indicator of quality. The finer a wool is, the more it will be soft and exclusive, but the quality of the fabric also depends on the type of raw materials and the working process.

Weight: refers to the weight of a single fabric meter. The so-called “four seasons” clothes, i. e. considered usable from autumn to spring, are made with fabrics between 240 and 270 gr/m. Wool fabrics suitable for summer weigh less than 240 g/m, while winter fabrics start at 270 g/m.
It is important to remember that this measuring system only applies to woolen fabrics. A linen fabric, for example, can weigh up to 390 g/m, but the “breathability” and resistance properties of the fibers make it one of the best summer fabrics.

Warmth: indicates the level of warmth that a fabric is able to offer. There are very heavy fabrics in terms of gr/m, but still they are ideal for summer season (e. g. linen) and fabrics that are simultaneously light and very warm (e. g. cashmere). The “warmth” is therefore an additional indication, to be considered in close correlation with the “weight”.

Excellence: indicates the exclusivity of a fabric, evaluating at the same time different parameters such as fineness, fiber type and textile brand notoriety.

Washing instructions + -

The Shirt Dandy garments are semi-crafted, made to measure with fine fabrics and yarns. It is generally recommended to pay the utmost care and attention to cleaning and maintenance, following the instructions provided, avoiding aggressive detergents and washing, to preserve the quality of the garments.

100% cotton shirts: household washing by hand or machine (using a normal process at a maximum temperature of 30°C and low spin 400 rpm ) is allowed. Do not bleach. Tumble drying (spin dryer) is allowed. Iron at a maximum temperature of 110°C (212°F) without steam.
Make sure to remove the undercollar splints from the shirt before washing.

Apparel care + -

  • Whenever you can, brush your garment for 30 seconds with a natural bristled brush, proceeding slowly from top to bottom.
  • When not wearing the jacket, hang it on a shaped hanger – possibly made of cedar. The wood will shape the shoulder structure, absorb the moisture from the fabric and keep away the moths.
  • Each garment should never be worn more than 2 or 3 times a week. A little “rest” lets the fibers breathe and helps to stretch the small crumpling accumulated during the day.
  • Use a garment bag to store your tailored garments on your business or leisure trips.


Care instructions for the shirt + -

  • Wash before wearing the shirt for the first time and then immediately after each use. You will avoid premature yellowing of the fabric.
  • Before each wash, gently pre-treat the most exposed parts – such as cuffs and collar – with marseille soap.
  • Once it’s ironed, keep the shirt in the closet – possibly hanging, not to ruin the fold.
  • It is not to be excluded that after the first wash the fabric shrinks a little in a variable way from fabric to fabric. Follow the washing instructions carefully to minimize the shrinking.
