5 Reasons Why We Love Custom Tailored Suits vs Off The Rack
Let's face it, when men and women need a suit they simply walk into a department store, find the one that fits best and buy it. Although the hem of your pants may hit the floor and your arms float around in the sleeves, you still purchase it because it's as close to a "perfect fit" as you're going to get. After all, what are safety pins for?
Of course, it is possible to have a suit tailored to fit you right there in the store but truth be told, the quality compared to a custom suit isn't the same. Now that you have come to terms with the fact that after shopping in a department store you will not be on the cover of a GQ Magazine, let's take a look at the "5 Reasons Why We Love Custom Tailored Suits"
1. Goodbye to extra costs for alterations
Not only do we spend an arm and a leg for off the rack suits that may or may not fit us, we still have to dish out money for the alterations to be done. Sadly, these alterations hardly fix the problem and we settle for a mediocre suit.
2. No more baggy or oversized suits
So you didn't have time for alterations? Well this reason is how you could've saved yourself the embarrassment. Nobody looks good in a baggy suit. Nobody.
3. YOUR body type, YOUR suit
Many of us are uneducated when it comes to knowing the difference between each style or cut of a suit. That is where a professional tailor comes in handy. The bottom line is whether you are short, tall, muscular, or round you will feel nothing short of amazing in a suit that fits your body. Even better, you get to pick the material, pattern, and style!
4. Stay fashion-forward
Slim fit suits have recently become popular in the media. Let's keep in mind that a slim fit suit is not for everyone, especially if you work in a formal corporate setting. On the other hand, if you work in a fashion-forward setting you'll be sure to turn heads as slim fit suits are dominating the fashion industry.
5. Comfortably look your best
We can all agree that when we look our best, we feel our best. Whether it's for work, a wedding, or an interview, a custom suit has multiple benefits for every man and woman.
Hopefully you now feel inspired to "dress the way you want to be addressed." Whether you wear a suit on a daily basis or you need a small selection for special occasions, suits that fit the right way should be in EVERYONE'S closet. Many are turning to customized tailored suits to stay "up to date" with the new trends. Not only is it a trend, but the feel and appearance of a suit tailored to YOUR body signifies your worth and the respect you deserve. Oh, and let's not neglect the fact that when we put on a suit we automatically feel like a BOSS!
