“A man in a well tailored suit will always shine brighter than a guy in an off-the-rack suit.” - Michael Kors
Do you want a luxury suit that fits impeccably and is customised to your body and preferences?
Look no further, you can turn a blind eye towards bespoke.
The word ‘bespoke originated from bespeak, which means ‘to give an order’. It is an original, one-of-a-kind garment, made exclusively from scratch according to the measurement of the wearer. The highest quality of luxury menswear clothing has to be bespoke, undoubtedly - the ultimate fit, exceptional quality, a personal touch and a lifetime investment. This extraordinary suit doesn’t only make you look powerful, but according to research conducted at California State University, a formal attire made to fit allows the person to think more broadly and holistically. Well-crafted clothing is the foundation and basis of style and has an everlasting room for it in vogue. It has the power to imbue a soldier, spy or a businessman with the right kind of confidence which he might otherwise find through a genie.
It takes meticulous care, precision, great know-how and a long conversation with your tailor to get the bespoke suit of your dreams. But don’t fret, here are a few tips that will help you sail through the process of getting yourself the perfect bespoke suit.
Make sure that you communicate well with your tailor, but at the same time, respect his recommendations since they come from years of experience of dressing hundreds and thousands of men.
Make sure to make these three foundational decisions very wisely with the help of your tailor - material, weight and colour of the fabric. A universal bespoke should be suited for three seasons - you can never go wrong with blue or gray. Let your tailor know everything from your colour preference to the accessories that you own so that he will be able to narrow down on your choices.
Be honest to the tape measure, maintain a natural posture and breathe. A good tailor will do justice to your body type and flatter the figure you have, kicking all your insecurities out of the window.
Make sure to wear formal dress shoes when you visit the tailor to give the perfect length measurements. Do not go too long with the length of the trousers, something that is considered of the biggest tailoring mistakes that men make.
Don’t be too adventurous with the lapels. Stay conservative - neither too thin nor too thick makes for the perfectly evergreen lapel.
The best suit should look like it’s been lived in.You should wear the suit and not the other way round. A bespoke suit is made with a lot of hard work, expertise and love, so make sure that you take care of it with all your heart. Always remember, behind every man’s great suit is a seasoned tailor, so don’t forget to thank yours for helping you put your best foot forward.
