1. The Best Fit
When something is tailored to your body, you know it is designed for you - and not a general or "average", one-size-fits-all body type.
Whether your taller, shorter, carry more or less around the middle, your suit will need to work to flatter your body differently. You just don't get that from a regular off-the-rack design.
Being well-adjusted to your personal measurements while providing enough ease and comfort. Extreme tightness or looseness shouldn’t be felt (so your confidence can remain high).
The main focus is to dress for your current body type, not the body you hope to have after 2 months of extreme dieting & gym.
Neck girth, arm length and overall body length will be adjusted accordingly.
2. Quality Materials Are Used
When purchasing a suit from a store, quality isn’t the priority. Cost-effective mass productions for mass profits are thrown in for the less scrutinizing customer.
Those clothes don’t go through the hands of professionals who perfect every detail. But it’s a completely different story with custom made clothing.
Custom tailors are able to make adjustments on the spot and look out for inconsistencies. They adhere to the right number of stitches per inch – which keeps the fabric durable.
3. Highlight your personal style
Custom made clothing allows you to bring out more individuality.
There are manufacturers who work with not just different fabrics – but multiple features and design options as well. There’s a good amount of collaboration in which you influence the final product. You get to be creative.
Some features you can take advantage of include:
The first thing people notice from a distance, long before the fabric even comes into play
It strongly affects the mood and first impression you’re going to make
There are different meanings that apply to each color
Part of the shirt that enhances certain features of the face and/or upper body It includes styles such as conventional point, spread, button down and more unusual ones like a pin or tab collar
Cuff shape: You can try cuffs that are squared off or have rounded corners to look more masculine Pocket shape: You can either add a chest pocket or two, or do away with them to get a cleaner look for your shirt Matching stripes: You can use them for flashier or more stylized outfits
4. There Is Less Time & Effort Wasted
Unlike clothes shopping, the custom made route is controllable and straightforward.
I know that feeling of having to go out of your way for off-the-rack clothing – trying to pick out the best thing. If you don’t like shopping, it’s torture.
But when working with a tailor – you’re pretty much guaranteed to get something. You’re told how long it takes to be finished, and then it’s just a matter of waiting. You don’t spend time entering a store to look around or see “sold out” and “unavailable” items.
5. Your Clothes Last Longer
In this consumer-driven world of temporary goods, you want to be a smart buyer. You want to think a few steps ahead and avoid being blindsided by the price tag.
That’s how you realize that custom made clothing is a great long-term investment. Because of the materials used and overall quality – there are fewer problems to face later on.
You’ll avoid paying for lots of repairs (or even replacements). Any issues that may happen over time can be dealt with easily by a skilled tailor (they’re usually tiny adjustments).
These clothes are meant to outlast ready-to-buy stuff. They should never surprise you with some major defect.
You can add the following extras on custom made clothes to extend their lifespan:
Seams with more security and durability, preventing threads from getting caught up or damaged
They allow the garment to have a clean finished appearance
Materials that can be inserted in stress points of clothing (such as the lower side seams)
They lessen the amount of stress that’s being applied to those points
