Five tips for buying a suit on the high street


If you want to turn out like the gentleman shown here (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?) without breaking the bank on Saville Row, here are five good tips when looking for an off-the-rack suit on the high street.

Fitted Shirt Florence

1. Sacks are for potatoes – not well dressed men

There are many measurements to consider when finding a suit jacket that fits, but you must make sure you concentrate on these three at the very least: the chest, the waist, and the shoulders.

Given the way in which suit jackets are sized – that is to say, chest size-by-length – even the most clueless buyer will be fleetingly aware that the chest is an important area. Amazing, then, that so many still get it wrong. It’s quite simple, really: make sure your lapels lay against your chest when the jacket is buttoned, not too tight, but certainly with no gaping space.

Finicky Brings About 'Shirt Heaven' for You Magazine



Finicky Shirts

A few weeks ago, our Beauty Assistant Maria Glendinning made her other half George very happy (and made him look very smart….) when she ordered him a custom-made shirt from Finicky Shirts.

George got to choose the perfect style, collar shape, cuff design, fabric pattern and colour, then Maria got busy with the tape measure – and sent off his measurements on the Finicky order form. Three weeks later, the beautifully-made shirt arrived (beautifully-wrapped too) and it was definitely worth the wait.

George was in shirt heaven! He says, 'The shirt fits excellently, thank you very much. I am very impressed by the quality of the fit, fabric and the stitching and really like the shape of the cuffs and small details like the last button being red really set it apart from run-of-the- mill shirts! I will also be recommending Finicky to my friends and colleagues.' Praise indeed……

The design you choose is completely up to you, you can go classic or as creative as you like, Finicky has every option available. And the personalised service really does make it the perfect gift.

Finicky Hits the Spot with Mission; Style

Mission; Style

Fashion & Lifestyle Blog


You may recall back in February I had a pretty amazing day at my company's Annual Sales and Marketing conference (catch up here) where I scooped up some pretty incredible prizes, one of which was a bespoke tailored shirt! This is a major win for me as high street 'fitted' shirts do not 'fit' me, ever...The arms are too long, it bags around the shoulders and middle back, so what's the point in buying them if you look like you've been in the dressing up box..?!


On the day of the conference I was measured within an inch of my life, I chose the cut, the fabric, the cuffs, the colour, the bloomin' lot - this shirt is completely unique to me!

As this was a treat, I decided to go down the investment piece route - a crisp white herringbone shirt, you can't go wrong with this and everyone should have one decent white shirt in their wardrobe..(like I do now...), fact!


Well this week a fab little tailored parcel arrived (they won me over with the packaging to be perfectly honest) and I'm giving high props to my bespoke shirt, it is truly gorgeous..;




Created with care, packaged with love..




How cute is the little red button at the bottom..!

The fabric is incredibly soft, it fits perfectly and is going to compliment my work wardrobe beautifully!!

Finicky Shirts have until recently concentrated on men's shirts, for which I can also vouch for as Mr Mission;Style also had a bespoke shirt delivered this week.. He loves his shirts and spends time finding the right fit, style and cut. His Finicky Shirts verdict.."The best fitting shirt I have ever had.." That's a big statement from him and kudos to the quality and tailoring! Their website is currently more male orientated however, they are more than geared up to tailor for the ladies too (proof is in my shirt)...

Here comes the exciting bit.. Finicky Shirts have kindly agreed that Mission;Style readers can get 10% off all orders placed before 30th April 2013 if you quote MISSIONSTYLE!! (You.Are.Welcome!)

The even more exiting bit... They have also kindly offered to run a prize draw...(exciting), basically any order placed using the MISSIONSTYLE code before 30th April 2013 will be put in to the draw and then if you are the lucky winner, you will either get 1) A refund for your shirt order (maximum of 6 per person) or 2) A credit for another bespoke shirt...And, they will already have your measurements! 

The winner will be chosen at random and announced on here after 30th April 2013.

How to order - You can contact David at Finicky Shirts who will welcome your call and talk you through the next steps either at or, you can call him direct on 07900 828193.

All hail the Victorian shopper

Although I absolutely love Christmas, I can’t say I am a big fan of Christmas shopping. I tend to a adopt a Victorian approach of bringing home a few select presents for the nearest and dearest on Christmas Eve, following a late scoot around the shops for some last-minute hunting and gathering. However, I have to say the internet has revolutionised my shopping habits.
Searching out the best bargains online is certainly a bit easier than the battlegrounds that become some of our big-name stores. You can also find some fresh ideas or a special twist on a traditional Christmas gift. For example, shirts seem to be a staple fixture on the list for many a male relative, but with a bit of searching on the worldwide web I found something just a little different – a made to measure shirt you can order online in all manner of colours, sizes and styles.
Finicky is a London-based master tailor and shirt maker, but the website is easy to use and with the choices available you are guaranteed to find whatever you require. The shirts also arrive in a stylish wrapped and tied finish, so for the Victorian Christmas shopper like myself, even the frightening though of wrapping paper and Sellotape is banished for another year. Take a look at and you might just find all your Christmases have come early.
