Although fashion continues to evolve, the basics that every guy needs hasn’t changed much. A fresh white dress shirt, the perfect pair of jeans, simple black oxford lace-ups are all essentials, along with a great fitting suit.
The suit is timeless in nature, its always been the business man's uniform. The details, shape, fabric, and fit are very specific to a period in time. Wearing a suit used to mean you were sophisticated, professional and refined all at the same time, although that often came at the price of feeling stiff and non-creative for lack of a better phrase.
Today the mentality around a suit has changed - or should we say evolved. A suit today can just as easily be paired with a great pair of sneakers as it can with a dress shoe. It can be dark and dressy or a brilliant colour that reflects the wearer's personality. Great men’s shops around the globe will always have an assortment of things to pick from but a made to measure suit is where you can truly build something that is not only perfect for your body but also your lifestyle and personality.
So where does one start when building a made to measure suit? Here are a few questions you should know the answers to before you start the process:
1. What do you want the suit for? Is it for a special occasion? Or are you going to wear it regularly?
2. Are you looking for something that sticks out? Or are you looking for something subtle (“timeless”)?
3. Are there any specific details you want?
4. Are there things that you know about suits off the rack that you don’t like and are trying to fix via made to measure?
Now that you have an idea of what you are looking for it’s time to set up some time with one of our associates and come in and start the process. Like all good things you will need to budget some time, but don’t worry we are here to guide you through the process.
