Have you ever bought a shirt at a retail or online store and only realised when you tried it on at home that it did not fit?
Was it frustrating and a pain to return it to a store or send it back in the post for an exchange or refund? Did you wish the shirt had fitted you perfectly in the first place, without having to worry about which size to go for?
Then you have come to the right place as in 2019 we officially launched our new made to measure menswear and women’s clothing service including: custom made shirts, made to measure trousers, vibrant African print shorts and stylish African print pencil skirts.
To celebrate the launch of our made to measure clothing, we are currently running a special offer where you can buy one get one free on all our made to measure African print shirts with the code MTMFIRST.
Read on to discover more about our made to measure clothing and the offer so you can treat yourself or a loved one to a bold and beautiful shirt.
All our modern African print clothing is lovingly handmade in Tanzania, East Africa, by highly skilled tailors using brightly coloured, original, 100% cotton African wax print fabrics!
We have been making custom made orders for our customers for many years and after receiving such positive feedback decided to make it accessible to all!

We even re-launched our website so you can easily design your own made to measure clothes from scratch and enter your measurements by following our simple ‘how to measure’ guides.
All you need is a fabric tape measure and your favourite fitting shirt, trousers or shorts at home. (Please note we only require your body measurements if ordering a pencil skirt).

Simply design two shirts with the same measurements and sleeve length, for example 2 x long sleeve shirts, 2 x short sleeve shirts or 2 x 3/4 sleeve shirts (for women only), to your basket. Then enter the code MTMFIRST on the basket page or at the checkout to redeem this amazing offer!
If you prefer to purchase a made to measure short sleeve shirt (or 3//4 sleeve shirt) and long sleeve shirt together then you can use the coupon MTMFIRSTSPECIAL to get the cheapest shirt for free!
You can select two completely different African wax print fabrics for your two shirts or they can both be exactly the same. The choice is entirely up to you!
If you would like to order 2 x short sleeve shirts in different prints then please design and enter your measurements for two separate shirt prints and add them to your basket.
If you would like to order 2 x long sleeve shirts in the same print, for example, then increase the quantity from 1 to 2 before you click on the ‘add to basket’ button below the order summary section on the product page. You can also increase the quantity of the number of shirts in your basket before proceeding to the checkout.

Here’s what one of our recent customers had to say about his made to measure order:
“I am very pleased with the shirts. I have always loved the bright colors and designs of the Kitenge-(wax)- shirts; they bring sunshine even on a dreary day. Another reason for ordering the shirts directly from Tanzania is providing work directly to the fine tailors there. I must also mention that the quality of cotton used is first class; I’m sure I’ll be able to wear these shirts for many years-(providing I don’t gain excessive weight that is…..).
Feel free to order from this fine company; you will not be disappointed. The founder of Kitenge, Sian Wells, has been very helpful and promptly replied to my e-mails. She really cares about her company and will, I know for fact, give you excellent service. It is a real pleasure in this day and age to receive such attention. You will not be disappointed. Please do let the tailors in Tanzania know that I am very happy with the quality work they’ve done for me.“

Our MTMFIRST offer only applies to customers who have not previously ordered a made to measure shirt from our website before. If you have bought a ready to wear (ready-made) shirt from our website or at an event before then you still qualify for the offer so please do take advantage of it.
Don’t forget to create an account on our website before you place your first made to measure order as this will ensure that your measurements are saved for future reference.
It will also make it easier if you would like to order another made to measure shirt in the future, as your measurements will be automatically displayed in the boxes on the product page. You will still be able to make adjustments to your previous measurements before placing your order if needed.
