My Take on the Site
As someone that wears nice clothing everyday for my professional job I am always looking for clothes that will last a long time and that look good too. Recently I found out about Original Stitch and I was excited to check out the site and what it offers. In looking through the site itself I was impressed to find the breadth and depth that it offered consumers. I explored the site and found that there was a ton of things that could be customized and that no matter what your size you were able to develop clothing that will fit you well and look good too.
I found the site to be very easy to use. It walks you step-by-step through the process that you would need to get the right measurements and get the right fit. I was impressed with the quality that I found on the site as well as the variety as well. The prices were also reasonable based on the fact that you are getting a customized shirt, which you cannot get by just going to the store itself.
All-in-all, this was a great site that offered great quality and customization and I highly recommend that you check out the site for yourself to see what it can offer you too!
