Tips for First Timers Users of Made to Measure Suits


Are you excited about having a made to measure suit? This is like a customised suit that hugs your body and fits you perfectly. The good thing about this choice is that you can decide on every detail. The moment it is done, it will be a reflection of who you are and what your preferences are in life. There are steps that you need to go through before made to measure suits are ready to wear. Here are some tips to help you.

Keep the design classic

There is nothing wrong with coming up with designs that stand out as long as you feel like they speak for you. If you think you would look great in them, just give them a try. However, if you want to have a good look, even if it is deemed safe, stick with classic designs. Besides, it is not like you can afford to go crazy with the design, and then not like it. It is better to have a safe and classic design that you will love to wear many times than a crazy design that you might be able to pull off once and never again.

Have a clear plan

The good thing about the design is that you can ask the tailor to help you out. There is no need to create the design on your own unless you know someone who can design for you. The important thing to remember is that designers also need your input. As such, it helps if you have a concrete idea in mind of what exactly it is that you want. Do you want to have a slim-fit suit, or do you want one that is a bit looser? Do you need flaps or jet pockets? Should the buttons be of plain colour or must they be really unique?

These are just some of the questions you need to answer, so you can have a vision of what the final output will be.  

Listen to suggestions

It is great to have your own preferences when it comes to a suit. It is yours, and you are the one who will wear it in public. However, it also helps to listen to what other people have to say. Your tailor can provide suggestions and you should take them into consideration. Your friends might also recommend something based on how they see you dress each day. You can also use their recommendations. Take your time to think until you come up with a plan.

This suit isn’t finished quickly

It takes weeks before your finished suit will be ready. Tailors are extremely particular about the details. Don’t be disrespectful and demand the suit just because you need it now. The final suit might also require alterations, which might mean another few days before the suit is finally finished. Regardless, you have decided to invest in this suit, so you have to be patient.

Hopefully, the final results will be the best for you.
