Made To Measure, Made For You!

‘It fits like a glove!’

This is a phrase we’re all familiar with, but how often do we actually find ourselves saying it? Historically, ‘made-to-measure’ suits were the exclusive luxury of the social elite, representing such a huge financial outlay that only the very richest could afford them. But, happily, times have changed and you can now enjoy the fit of made to measure at an affordable price! Over the last few years, an increasing number of online and brick ‘n’ mortar retailers have started to offer an off the peg with alterations service. It’s a well known fact that once a gentleman has experienced the feel of a properly fitted suit, it’s hard to embrace an off-the-shelf alternative. The fit really is like no other… a second, stylish skin!

So what are the benefits of having a suit altered for a more tailored suit?

Compared to its off-the-shelf counterpart, a tailored suit offers great freedom and takes away the often exasperating experience of an imperfect fit. Because with each alteration your suit becomes more crafted to fit your specific body shape, you can be sure that every inch of it will hug your contours and provide maximum comfort and confidence.

The other major benefit is a choice of suit is quality.

You just can’t beat it. If the quality and feel of a suit matters to you, then you will never regret opting for a more superior suit and material. Although the average cost of a high quality fabic suit is (understandably) higher than a cheaper off-the-shelf alternative, never has the phrase ‘you get what you pay for’ been more relevant.

There are 3 key elements that you are paying for when you purchase a quality suit and have it altered and tailored, which are:

  1. The Customised Fit
  2. The Materials and Fabrics
  3. The Process
All three of these elements ensure that you get the best fit, the best shopping experience, the best customer satisfaction…and the best comments! Of course, as with anything, it’s important to do your research. Many online companies profess to offer the made-to-measure and tailoring experience, but fall down when it comes to delivering the standard of fit demanded of many gentleman. It is often prudent to go into a shop, meet the expert, explain your requirements, discuss your options and get the best advice you can.
