Tips on Getting A Tailor-Made Suit

While off-the-rack suits are great and will do most of the time, let’s face it: everyone has different body characteristics. For your one big day, a custom-made suit may bring out the man in you better than your usual mass-produced suits.

Tip 1: Shop Around for A Good Tailor

Ask your friends, family and colleagues for recommendations and check out established tailors. You might have to make a little more effort since this is an increasingly rare trade.

Tip 2: The Right Cloth

The right fabric and the right colour determines the quality of your suit. First, choose a colour that suits you. While black is always a safe choice, you may wish to consider colours such as brown, navy blue or ivory white. Make sure that your colours complement your bride’s gown. The quality of fabric used is also critical in having a quality suit. If you can afford the price and the level of maintenance, go for natural fibres such as wool or silk. The downside is that you may need to invest more care in the suit subsequently.

Tip 3: The Right Size

Remember to talk to your tailor and provide constant feedback on how you would like the suit to fit you. The thing about customisation is that the suit can have visual correction, such as making chubby men appear slimmer and more attractive.

Tip 4: Your Preferred Style

Browse through plenty of fashion magazines, sites and boutiques to find out which kind of cut suits you. Discuss with your tailor, who should be experienced enough to know most styles in the market. Best of all, you can specify the number of pockets to keep the snakes and frogs.

Tip 5: Final Fit

Be sure to ask for final adjustments if necessary when you try the suit on. Check your fit from every angle in the mirror.
