How does Joe Button make premium quality custom shirts at such a low price?
Custom-made shirts are usually expensive as you are paying a tailor to provide you with a premium quality service. That said, an off-the-rack shirt should not be so expensive. The makers of these standardized shirts are mainly established companies who use the perception of “traditional craftsmanship” to justify the high prices of their shirts. In reality, most of these companies outsource production overseas, employing low cost labor and earning super-sized profits.
At Joe Button we let you be your own custom tailor. So whilst we use traditional age-old tailoring methods to create your shirt, we lower our costs by outsourcing the design, measurement and fabric selection to you. By lowering our costs, we can provide a premium quality custom shirt to you at a lower price. Click here to learn more.
Do you own any stores?
No. Retail shops with fancy fit-outs are expensive and most shirt makers who own these stores have to charge more for their shirts to pay for them. We only want you to pay for what you’re buying.
What type of fabrics are your dress shirts made of?
All of our fabrics are 100% European cotton, sourced from France, Italy, Switzerland and the UK. We hand pick each and every fabric to make sure you get the latest looks and best quality. Click here to learn more.
Do you offer wrinkle-free / easy iron fabrics?
We know that a lot of companies now offer wrinkle-free clothing and although we recognize that this may be convenient, wrinkle-free shirts need to be treated with a resin that releases formaldehyde fumes that may cause skin irritation for some people. Additionally, wrinkle-free fabrics are more likely to retain odors, are less breathable and durable and do not drape the body in the same way a 100% cotton shirt does.
We have chosen not to include these fabrics in the Joe Button range as we feel strongly about delivering a product that is natural, comfortable and of premium quality.
Where are Joe Button shirts made?
All Joe Button shirts are crafted in Hong Kong by high quality tailors with over 50 years of experience in the bespoke garmenting industry.
Do you make custom shirts for children?
Joe Button customers come in all shapes and sizes and we think children deserve to look good, especially on special occasions.
We can make a custom shirt for a child if you provide us with either their body or shirt measurements. If you are placing an order for a child, please contact us with the order number so we can let our tailors know.
Can I order short sleeve shirts?
Sure! We offer different sleeve length options for both men and women. Simply go to the Design my Shirt page, select cuff and then choose from the different sleeve length options.
Will my measurement and design profiles be saved for future orders?
Yes! And this is one of the best things about Joe Button. You only have to input your measurements on your first order. Once you have your Joe Button account is setup, your design profiles and measurements will be saved for easier ordering next time.
Is my personal information kept private?

If you don’t want to measure yourself and you’re pretty close to a standard size you can alter one or more measurements from a standard size base.
Simply select your standard size under Customize Your Size on the Sizing Page. All the dimensions of that standard size will populate in each of the measurement fields and you can then change one or as many of these as you like.
If you would like to modify a standard size, simply click on one of the standard sizes, e.g. S, M, L, XL. The measurement fields will automatically populate according to the size you have selected. You can now change any of these measurements to fit to your body type.

Do I have to pay any taxes or customs duties?
This will depend on where your order is being shipped. Most countries including USA, Australia and South Korea allow free trade over the Internet and will not charge any taxes or duties for small packages entering the country.
If you are shipping to a Delivery Duty Unpaid country, the price of your final purchase will be exclusive of all taxes and duties. As the recipient, you are then liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to. Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and cannot tell you what the cost of this would be as customs and import duties vary widely for different countries. Please check with your local customs office for current charges so you are aware of what you may have to pay to release your orders.
How do I pay for my shirt?
We accept Visa and MasterCard and we’re currently working on more payment options which should be ready soon. We do not accept cash or cheques.

RETURN AND EXCHANGE POLICY
The shirt I received does not match the one I ordered. What should I do?
We try our absolute best to deliver your shirt exactly as you specified in your order however, because our shirts are individually handmade by our tailors, there may be instances where an error could occur.
If the shirt you received does not match what you ordered, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 days of receipt. Provide us with your order number and a detailed description of the discrepancy (including photographs, if applicable), then send the shirt back to us. Once we receive your shirt and conclude that it is an error on our part, we will re-make the shirt and send it back to you free of charge.
Please note that a measurement discrepancy is considered to be a difference between the provided measurements and the actual shirt measurements of greater than ¾ inch (1.9cm).
Please make sure any returned shirts are sent in their original condition. We will not accept any returns that have already been used.
Can I exchange my shirt?
As Joe Button shirts are custom designed and custom fitted to each individual, we cannot accept any returns for exchange.
We aim to always deliver a Joe Button shirt that you will love but if for whatever reason you aren’t 100% satisfied, we will make it up to you!
We always provide you with the exact measurements of your Joe Button shirt just before checkout, so please check this carefully before you confirm the order.
My shirt doesn't fit me
If you find that your shirt doesn’t fit you, please check to see if you provided us with the right measurements by comparing your Joe Button shirt against the shirt measurements in your order form. Instructions on how to do this can be found here.
The standard allowance of our tailoring service is 0.75 inch (1.9cm). This means that if the measurements on your shirt differ by more than 0.75 inch compared to the measurements in your order form, we’ll re-make your shirt and ship it to you free of charge. If this happens, email us at email@example.com within 3 days and tell us exactly what went wrong (e.g. sleeves are 2 inches too long, waist is 1 inch too small etc). The more information you give us, the better (photos, diagrams etc). We’ll email you back and let you know where to send your incorrect shirt and your new shirt will be on it’s way.
