Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you are anything like me – always finding it hard to figure out what to gift your busband/bf, I am sure this post is going to be super helpful.
So a couple of weeks ago, I started to list out things that would be a good gift for my husband, Kaushik. In fact, I even posted an Instagram story asking for ideas.
One of my close friends then asked me to check out Original Stitch – a brand that helps you order custom shirts that are handmade in Japan. Plus, they use the highest-quality materials and sustainably construct their garments in fair working environments.
I checked them out and decided to order an Original Stitch shirt for Kaushik. The process was so easy. I had some ideas about Kaushik’s sizing but their website had such easy guides to help me figure out the process.
One of the biggest challenges my husband faces when buying off-the-rack shirts, is the sizing. He is tall, slim on the waist but pretty buff on the shoulders. So off the rack shirts are either loose on the body but tight on the shoulders or vice-versa. Since I could enter custom measurements here, I didn’t have to worry about the fit.
Pro Tip: If you guys don’t know your husband’s size, use Original Stitch style guide along with an already owned shirt that fits your husband as a reference for measurement. This should help you figure out his ideal measurements.
Original Stitch Shirts: How to Customize
When you go to their site, you’ll see that you can customize their shirts in a variety of ways, right from shirt type, shirt color, their collar to cuffs to even the plackets. I was totally spoilt for choice. It felt like Christmas shopping all over again.
I decided to go for a pink shirt since it’s a Valentine’s day gift and Kaushik loves soft pinks for his wardrobe. To give it an extra edge, I choose a floral inner placket and inner collar.
To make it more personal, I added Kaushik’s monogram to the shirt ” KN”, a feature I loved the most about Original Stitch. Adding a monogram, makes the gift so much more special.
Before I knew it, I had placed the order. The process was that easy-peasy.

Also, I managed to snag a special code from the Original Stitch team just for your guys. If you order using code “SOCIALNUPUR” you get a 30% discount on your order. So make sure you use that when you order Original Stitch shirts!
