Why not just buy at dept. store?

If there’s one thing that comes up over and over again in my style lessons is FIT. Fit is king and guys are finally starting to realize that.

I probably told you a dozen times to take your shirt to the tailor for adjustments after you buy it. That’s great advice (and common sense) but, sometimes, the tailor can only do so much with it.

Enter the world of custom clothing.

You can custom make much more than shirts: suits, sports jackets, pants and even shoes. Sure, this may require a little more effort and a little more money out of your pocket… but in the end it’s well worth it.

I’m sure this happened to you many times: you check every store in town for the right shirt and you can’t find anything. All the shirts are either too big or too small. What do you do?

Answer: find a tailor that makes bespoke clothing.

Let’s take shirts for instance. Once the tailor has your measurement (waist, neck, arm length, chest), he’s ready to make you a unique shirt that fits you like a glove.

In the case of suits, things get a little more complicated. Suits are a big investment so it’s even more important that you have them bespoke.

Usually, when you make a custom shirt or a suit, you not only get to choose the fabric but also the details of that clothing item. For a shirt you might be able to decide on the fabric, the pattern, the collar, the cuff and whether or not you’d like to have a pocket
