While shops at the city center showcase their new fashion arrivals, classic designs that never go out of style can be found at your local tailor’s workshop. We all have seen the hefty price tag that comes along with many brand name lines. Even at that, we often find ourselves having to have these items tailored to fit us perfectly. Custom-made clothing may not always carry the big brand name but when it comes to quality, a good tailor is essential. Here are some tips on which items you should invest in having custom-made.
There is no doubt that hundreds of dress shirts in ever colour, size, and fitting can be found on the market. However, not all shirts are made equal. When it comes to picking a dress shirt, you want to find the best one to compliment your beautiful suit. Not only will a custom-made dress shirt look best, it will fit best and most comfortably! If you can envision it, a great tailor can have it made for you. Why struggle finding such an important staple in your closet when you can have one made just for you?
Pants or Trouser
Unlike shirts, not as many choices can be found for pants in shops. Styles of the season define what most retailers offer at any given time. We we all have experienced, generic fit sizes are known to not fit most. By consulting with a tailor, you can ensure the most flattering style for your needs in a fabric that is of quality. While ordering custom-made trousers may not come cheap, the value is unmissable. Custom-made pants made with careful stitching and of quality fabrics often last a lifetime as long there is no significant weight gain or loss.
There is no alternative to a jacket that fits and flatters perfectly. If there is one item that you must treat your wardrobe to, this is it. A good suit jacket can take an outfit to a whole new level. From business meetings to dining out to going to the theater or any other occasion, the perfect suit jacket is indispensable.
Personal style is important. Why blend in with the crowd when you can express yourself with custom-tailored clothing? Good quality and fit can do wonders for flattering body types of all shapes and sizes. Keep in mind that not all tailors are created equal. Do your research and don’t be afraid to ask for testimonials or to see samples of past work. Don’t be afraid to give compliments to other men on their suits. Chances are if it looks that great, it was likely custom-tailored in some way. Who knows, his tailor may soon be your tailor, too!
