4 Things to Look Out for When Selecting a Dress Shirt Manufacturer
From delivery times to clear communication - when selecting a dress shirt manufacturer, there are several important things to consider. Here are four key factors to look out for:
1. Production capabilities: You should ensure that the manufacturer has the machinery, equipment, and facilities to produce the type of dress shirts you require. This includes the ability to handle the fabric type and weight, as well as the desired colors and prints. It is also beneficial to consider the manufacturer's production capacity, as well as their ability to handle customisations or special requests, so that you can achieve the exact result you are in the market for.
2. Quality control measures: Quality control measures are crucial in the garment industry to ensure that the finished product meets your specifications and standards. Look for a manufacturer that has quality control processes in place, such as regular inspections and testing, to catch any defects or issues before the final product is shipped to you. You should also consider the manufacturer's certifications or accreditations, such as ISO 9001, which demonstrate their commitment to quality.
3. Lead times: No one enjoys a late service - and we know this better than anyone! Lead times are critical in the fashion industry as they determine when you can launch new collections or fulfill orders. It is always a good idea to ensure that the manufacturer can deliver your order within the desired timeline and has a reliable shipping and logistics process in place. You should also consider the manufacturer's location and proximity to your target market, as this can impact delivery times.
4. Communication and customer service: Good communication and customer service are essential for a successful partnership with a dress shirt manufacturer. Look for a manufacturer that is responsive to your inquiries and questions and has effective communication channels in place.
You should also consider the manufacturer's willingness to work with you on special requests or customisations and their ability to provide helpful feedback or recommendations based on their experience. A manufacturer who values their relationship with you and your brand can be a valuable partner to have - and that is one of the clearest differences between decent, and excellent!

Q: How important is the dress shirt manufacturer's location when choosing a partner?
A: The dress shirt manufacturer's location can be an important factor to consider when choosing a partner.

Q: How to know which manufacturer has experience with which material?
A: When choosing a dress shirt manufacturer, it's important to consider their experience working with the specific type of material you plan to use. You can also ask the manufacturer about their experience and capabilities with different materials during your initial conversations.
This is especially true for bamboo, a material that is in demand yet hard to work, and we are here to accommodate your bamboo shirt needs! To find out more about bamboo shirts and bamboo as a material, you can check out our article detailing the subject.
