About


Introducing the worlds first tailor-made shirts built with high performance functional textiles. 

You know that favorite shirt you have? The one that fits you perfect and makes you feel confident. Wouldn't it be great if all your shirts fit like that, like they were tailor-made? 

Now imagine if that perfect shirt also kept you cool and dry, or repelled spilled drinks and dirt, or blocked sweat stains from showing on the outside, or had flame and abrasion resistance or was made of cut and slash-resistant Kevlar? 

Made to Order Functional Shirts, Tailored to Your Lifestyle

I have married these two concepts--traditional tailoring  and today's modern functional fabric technologies--to launch a new type of business: Tailor-made functional shirts for men and women. 

I plan to introduce 5 functional shirts with different properties  initially, tailor made to exactly your size. 

1. The Ultimate Kevlar Work Shirts-Cut resistant, abrasion resistant and flame resistant shirts made with Kevlar! 

 2. The Stainless Shirt-A shirt that repels drink spills and is non-wrinkle! 

 3. The NanoDri Sweatproof shirt- A shirt that blocks sweat stains all over, including the sides, back and underarms, and is non-wrinkle.  

 4. The Cooling and Quick Dry Shirt- A shirt that is extremely lightweight, breathable and quick-drying, as well as non-wrinkle.   

5. The HeatCut Shirt- A shirt that blocks heat from the sun (thermal radiation) from going through the fabric to your body, thus keeping you cooler, and is non-wrinkle. 

 Details of each shirt follow:

1. The Ultimate Kevlar Work Shirts

These shirts offer the finest cut and abrasion resistance. Two types will be offered. 

a) The CutProof Shirt:  This shirt has a level 5 (the highest) cut resistance. With a composition of nearly 30% Kevlar, polyester and glass fiber, making this shirt required some special sturdy tailor’s shears made of  high-grade stainless steel with micro-serrated blades!  Offers the highest level of cut resistance. Also offers good abrasion resistance. Note: the fabric is a little bit hard to the touch and feels very cool. Available color: Light yellow. This is the fabric in its natural state. Dying this fabric is not possible.  

 b) The Flame-proof Shirt:  Made from 93% Nomex® Flame-resistant fabric + 5% Kevlar + 2% Anti-static fiber—Proven Protection for the Military and Police, and the Gold standard for flame resistance.  

 About Nomex:  Nomex® is a revolutionary, heat- and flame-resistant fiber.  When exposed to extreme heat, Nomex® fabric undergoes a special reaction, changing its properties to capture more energy, giving the wearer valuable extra seconds of protection from heat transfer.

Nomex® fabric also plays an important role in helping military and police uniforms be more comfortable to wear. It features the lowest possible weight at the highest level of protection; breathability for reduced heat stress; the ability to effectively wick away moisture; and durability to perform in a wide range of conditions.    

Available Color: Black

2. The Stain-proof Shirt: 

This shirt utilizes extreme hydrophobic and durable Made in Japan nanotechnology to repel stains of all kinds, from water, ice coffee and wine to milk. Extremely light weight an breathable. Never worry about staining your shirt again! 

 Properties:

  • Super hydrophobic stain repelling exterior
  • Uses Japanese nanotechnology
  • Light weight
  • Cotton touch
  • Breathable
  • Non-wrinkle

3. The NanoDri Sweatproof Button-down Shirt

Made with the very same Japan-made Nanotechnology as NanoDri®'s signature sweatproof apparel line, these button downs are extremely difficult to make and very effective at blocking sweat stains all over the shirt, including the sides, back and underarms.   

 Additionally featuring a silk touch non-stick sweat wicking interior and water proof membrane in the high friction area of the under arms, this shirt will have your back if you tend to sweat a lot but don't want others to know about it.  

Properties:

  • Blocks sweat stains from showing all over the shirt, including sides, back, chest and underarms
  • Absorbent wicking non-stick silk touch interior
  • Hydrophobic sweat blocking exterior
  • Stain repellent
  • Cotton touch
  • Breathable
  • Non-wrinkle

4. The Heat Cut Shirt

Made in Japan, the fabric for  this shirt is infused with highly absorbent ceramic material that acts as a thermal barrier to block heat from the sun using a unique Japanese processing technique.   

 The heat shielding process reflects sunlight-generated infrared rays via an infrared  reflection function, suppressing temperature rise on the reverse (skin) side of the fabric.  

Here is a test that was conducted on the effectiveness of this process.

Method

1. A test cloth was cut into 10 cm x 10 cm square.

2. The test cloth was fixed to the holding frame and a thermometer was set 5 mm under the fabric.

3. The temperature change was recorded by irradiating a 3500 W reflex lamp from a distance of 50 cm from the test cloth. 

Heat Test Setup
Heat Test Setup

Results 

 The graph shows a heat suppressing effect of around 2.1 to 5 degrees Celcius, depending on the external temperature. For example, the temperature just under the untreated fabric was 34.8 degrees at measurement point 1, and 32.7 when Heatcut fabric was used--a difference of over 2 degrees!

Properties:

  • Wicking
  • Fast drying
  • Heat blocking
  • Breathable
  • Cotton touch
  • Non-wrinkle

5. The Cooling, Quick-dry shirt.

This shirt is made with thin (only 120gsm non-see through) but absorbent fabric with a linen-like weave and cotton touch. All processes for this fabric, including dying and processing, are done in Japan.  Its intrinsic properties and unique fabric weave technology transports moisture away from the body to keep the wearer cool and dry on hot days. The shirt also dries extremely fast and is non-wrinkle. 

Properties: 

  • Wicking
  • Fast Drying
  • Evaporative cooling effect
  • Breathable
  • Cotton touch
  • Non-wrinkle

The TechnoTailors Ordering System

TechnoTailors shirt creation system is very simple. 

1. First you choose whether you want to make a men's or women's shirt.  

 2. Then you choose the FUNCTION you want in your shirt (you can choose from among the 5 major shirt categories listed above: 1.) cut/abrasion/flame resistance (the Ultimate Kevlar Workshirt); 2.) stain resistance (Stain-proof Shirt); 3.) sweatproof (NanoDri Sweatproof Shirt); 4.) block heat from the sun (HeatCut Shirt); and 5.) cooling/wicking/fast dry (Cooling, Quick-dry Shirt)

3. Then you choose your fabric for the function you have chosen. Most functions have more than one fabric you can choose from. Some functions have only one fabric however; for example, the Kevlar "Cutproof" shirt and the Nomex "Flameproof" shirt. 


4. Then you choose the color of fabric for the shirt. For most fabrics, there are a range  of colors to choose from.  However, some fabrics only have one color. 

6. Then its time to design your shirt. You will be able to tailor make your shirt by choosing from the following custom designs: 

 The regular fit is more for formal dress shirts that are tucked in. The Modern fit is similar to regular but more for the casual untucked look and are a little shorter. Super slim fit is self-explanatory.

After you have chosen the function you want, the fabric and fabric color and then designed your shirt, you then provide your size. You will be able to do this in one of 2 ways.

1. Measuring your body

OR

Measuring an existing shirt that fits you well.

It will take about 10 working days to complete your shirt. It will then be send to you by trackable delivery. 

The fabrics

Japan Quality. Most of the fabrics used for these shirts are made in Japan at each stage of the production process, from weaving to knitting, dyeing to processing. It is Japanese craftsmanship at its finest.  All fabrics are reliable and safe thanks to transparency and sustainability throughout each step of production.   All our partner companies in Japan are also certified Japan quality. All brand names used are the genuine articles from the real brand owners, no copies.  

The tailoring

Impeccably made by the finest tailors in the world. Many of their customers are visiting dignitaries, prime ministers, and influential business people.   They do it right. 

Risks and challenges

Although I have been in the apparel business for a number of years, this is the first time to branch out to the tailor-made realm. There may be unforseen challenges awaiting, including the business of the tailor. I have tried to compensate for this by selecting more than one capable tailor. Additionally, due to possible shortages in some colors of fabric, I may not be able to offer all colors indicated. The amount of fabric is limited and is therefore on a first come first served basis. Unforseen delays in customs processing are also a possibility. The prices listed do NOT include possible import customs fees. Each country is different with regard to if or how much they will charge, if anything. Also, being a tailor made product, the sizes of the shirts are limited to what the customer indicates. Mistakes made in measuring could lead to shirts that are the wrong size. So please be sure to accurately measure according to the instructions on the website to avoid sizing problems.
