Do I really need a Tailor Made Suit?

We can all agree that Tailor Made Suit are great (and the TV show is not bad either). Men look more dapper in them, and regain a new sense of confidence, instilled by their latest “threads”.

But it can go horribly wrong and do just the opposite and enhance a dishevelled look. So now, you’ve just paid good money for your brand new suit, and you’re still not that perfect gent that GQ promised. Insert angry face emoticon!

So how do you get a good fitting suit? The simple answer is, you have to go for a tailor made suit!

Yes, you can argue that I do just fine with my altered off-the-rack suit. But do you really?

There is nothing like a well tailor made Suit that is truly hand crafted to your unique body style and size. See the image below, that has been exaggerated (and obviously replicated from the internet) to support author’s claim that you do need that Tailor Made Suit!

Before and After of a Custom Made Suit. True Story!

Don’t just take our word for it. We encourage you to do a quick Google search. You will find countless article advising the same.

Below is another borrowed visual guidelines from our friends at illustrating how your suit should fit. And chances are the suit you’re wearing does not fit this way…


Good fitting suit


An off-the-rack suit may be altered to your size, but there will always be certain parts that is lacking, often adjusting and accounting only for length, while “making do” with the torso.

Now that you agree on the importance of a well tailored suit, let’s move on to other issues preventing you from looking like that well dressed gentleman on GQ that you’ve been following for so long.

But my off-the-rack suit is cheaper and I simply do not have the time to go to a Tailor to get measured“, you often say.

So to summarise, the main reasons to own a Custom Made Suit are:

1. The Fit – If you had to break it down to one reason, this would be the only that mattered. It is better to have a lower quality fabric (not that we are endorsing this), in a suit that is Made-To-Measure, than buy thousands of dollars worth of off-the-rack purchases that does not fit well.

Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 Suit Patterns Pt. 2

So last week we kicked off the Top 10 Men’s Suit Patterns list and here we are, part two and the final five of the countdown. But before we get into that I’d like to share a little story, something I see often but I am not sure if others do as well.. For the past few years now I have been wearing suits and blazers to work. Every time I have ever worn either it has always been with a purpose. I wanted to make a statement about who I am, what I am feeling, but most importantly what style I think looks good on me and that which I feel reflects who I am.

I have been fortunate to always receive positive feedback on the patterns, fabrics, fit, and more. I don’t know if this is truly the case for the masses but I honestly believe it should be, and here’s why; One thing I want to strongly impart is that style is personal. You can read the articles and magazine trends over and over, but if the styles don’t appeal to you then they don’t appeal to you and that’s OK! There are multitudes of men’s suit patterns to choose from and that choice should be solely up to you. Choose what will make you feel good, look good, and what you feel happy wearing. No matter how loud, casual, traditional, classic, or modern it may be just be you and let your style speak for itself. I believe doing so will ultimately surface the benefits you’re looking for.

That Said, this week we countdown our Top 5 Men’s Suit Patterns that have been selected by Popularity – from the World’s Leading Online Tailor –


Houndstooth Suit Pattern - iTailor
Houndstooth Men’s Suit Pattern

5 ) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Houndstooth

Now this one is certainly a head turner when it comes to men’s suit patterns, it is however much more common on suit jackets and blazers than full suits. It as well as many other suit patterns originated in Scotland, and back in the 1800’s it was worn mostly by shepherds. It is usually made from wool and tweed fabrics and predominantly produced in black and white. In the 1930’s this among a few other men’s suit patterns were considered to be worn by the upper classes as a symbol of wealth. This is a pattern you would only want to sport to casual events like a date, parties, a night out on the town or anything similar.

Birdseye Suit Pattern - iTailor
Birdseye Men’s Suit Pattern

4 ) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Birdseye

Sometimes mistaken as a solid suit, this mini pattern is actually the make up of tiny dots that are usually a lighter color on a darker fabric or background. These suits can usually be substituted for any solid suits and can be worn to work, or other casual events. This suit pattern works very well for most occasions when coupled with the right colors. We wouldn’t recommend wearing this suit to any formal event.

Windowpane Suit Pattern - iTailor
Windowpane Men’s Suit Pattern

3) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Windowpane

The windowpane suit pattern is a very bold and usually loud pattern, somewhat similar to chalk stripes but with horizontal lines. Normally worn by very confident men wanting to show off a bit of extra style and shine among the masses. This is generally seen more so in blazers and suit jackets than in full suits. This suit pattern is commonly worn in more casual settings like parties, events, or a night out on the town. This is not the suit you would wear to a job interview or a somber event like a funeral. The great thing about this pattern is it appeals to all body types; it surfaces a slimmer look for more larger men and actually appears to make most slimmer men a bit more broad and built. Due to this, we would say it is a must have for every man.

Herringbone Suit Pattern - iTailor
Herringbone Men’s Suit Pattern

2) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Herringbone 

The herringbone suit pattern is more commonly found in heavier fabrics like tweed and predominantly worn in colder climates during the fall and winter months for those who have seasons. The name comes from the pattern itself which resembles the bone of a herring or many fish for that matter. This suit pattern can be worn to a multitude of places, whether it be work, a night out, parties, any casual atmosphere for the most part. This suit pattern actually originated in Rome which makes complete that it has such timeless appeal and style. You will find it produced mostly in black and grey, but there are many color combinations that differ just like the olive/brown color pictured above.

Pinstripe Suit Pattern - iTailor
Pinstripe Men’s Suit Pattern

 1) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Pinstripes

And number one on our top 10 men’s suit patterns list is The Pinstripe. The most classic of all striped suits and predominantly found in the color white but can also be found in gray and beige. There are three main types of striped suits (Pinstripe, Pencil, and Chalk) Pinstripe being the most common and middle sized, pencil stripes are much more thin like that of a pencil line and chalk stripes much more thick. This sort of pattern helps men appear a bit taller and potentially thinner, but this suit works very well for any stature. This suit pattern can be worn to the office and certain events, but it is predominantly known as a suit for work.


That’s it for this week, we hope the past two weeks of information on men’s suit patterns will give you plenty of ammo as you design your own here from nearly 300 suit fabrics.

Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 Suit Patterns Pt. 1

Now that you’re aware just how affordable customs suits can be, it’s time we start talking about the suit patterns you commonly see on men’s suits. When it comes to a suit, variety is crucial. Men’s suits can be worn to work, dinner parties, events, weddings, and much more. So having a good understanding of what suit fabrics work best for what events and for what type of weather is key.

Generally, Patterned Suits are ideally suited for more casual, informal events than Solid Color Suits. But, just like wine, everyone has a different palate, more so when it comes to style.

Glen Check Plaid Suit Pattern - iTailor
Glen Check Plaid Men’s Suit Pattern

10) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Glen Check Plaid

Possibly the most common of all plaid suit patterns is the glen check plaid. This was originally known as the Glen Urquhart Plaid which stemmed from the valley in Scotland named “Glenurquhart” in Inverness-shire. Around 1926 is when the newer name of Glen Check Plaid surfaced which was made popular by the Duke of Windsor when he was Prince of Whales. It is probably the most produced of all plaid suit patterns today and due to its timeless history and it will probably remain so for quite some time.


Tartan Plaid Suit Pattern - iTailor
Tartan Plaid Men’s Suit Pattern

9) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Tartan Plaid

Tartan plaid is a louder style of plaid suit pattern that usually encompasses multiple colors, those colors can be more earth-toned at times and then also less subdued as well. In America most tartan is called and known as just “plaid” but in Scotland a “tartan” cloth is usually an accessory for most kilts which is hung over the shoulder or on the bed as a blanket. This suit pattern also originates from Scotland where many plaid patterns were born.


Tartan Plaid Suit Pattern - iTailor
Graph Check Men’s Suit Pattern

 8) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Graph Check

Unlike that of any custom dress shirt, the graph check men’s suit pattern is quite difficult to actually see. It is quite small and very intricate, most can sometimes be mistaken for solid color suits since their stitching is so close it’s hard to make out the check pattern. If you’re looking for suit patterns that are close to solid colors but with just a dash of something else, this would be our recommendation.


Chalk Stripe Suit Pattern - iTailor
Chalk Stripe Men’s Suit Pattern

7) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Chalk Stripe

A little bit thicker than its extremely well known counter-part the pinstripe, the Chalk Stripe suit pattern boasts a strong demand for attention. It is usually the size most men are looking for in the pinstripe but don’t realize the pinstripe is a little less wide and a little less “in your face” if you will. However, while the pinstripe can be worn to certain formal events the chalk stripe is a bit too loud for such gatherings. The chalk stripe can come in multiple suit fabrics like wool or a wool/silk blends depending on the climate of where you live, you should give yourself choices.


Madras Plaid Suit Pattern - iTailor
Madras Plaid Men’s Suit Pattern

6) Men’s Suit Patterns – Top 10 – Madras Plaid

The madras plaid is one of the most well known and most commonly seen suit patterns that few know the name of. It originated from East India, and this pattern is usually quite soft in appearance. With dress shirts it is usually made up of many different colors. This style of plaid has been known to be a bit more on a the preppy side do to its relaxed and casual appearance. If you choose the right fabric this pattern can be used in many different seasons.

Men's Suits - iTailor Charcoal Suit

We recommend wearing this with solid and patterned dress shirts, just be careful not to add patterned ties with patterned shirts.

Men's Suits - iTailor Plaid Suit

4) Men’s suits – Timeless Styles – The Plaid Suit

Number four on our list of top 5 men’s suits with timeless style is the plaid suit. Plaid suits you don’t always see every day which is precisely why you want in on this bad boy. It’s unique, memorable, and helps you stand out. The good thing about plaid suits is they are year round favorites. You can always find brighter patterns for the warmer months and darker ones for the colder months. See our plaid collection of men’s suits today. Since the suit pattern on plaid suits are usually quite busy we recommend keeping your custom dress shirts solid, and be certain your tie patterns complement this suit properly.

Men's Suits - iTailor Double Breasted Suit

3) Men’s Suits – Timeless Styles – The Double Breasted Suit

Number three on our list of top 5 men’s suits with timeless style is the double breasted suit. This absolutely ageless sensation has been around for longer than both you and I have been alive. But at any rate it has seen peaks and valleys of being “in-fashion”; the good thing is it doesn’t seem to ever go away which tells us it’s a surefire winner no matter what your age. This suit is ideal for taller and more slender or physically fit men. We recommend for a more modern appeal on this timeless piece to make certain this investment is a custom made suit, you want this as form fitting and slim as possible. One note that we must state is that you never are to wear the jacket unbuttoned, so take note. When it comes to pairings, we suggest wearing solid custom dress shirts and solid ties with this masterpiece of men’s suits.

Men's Suits - iTailor Three Piece Suit

2) Men’s Suits – Timeless Styles – The Three Piece Suit

Number two on our list of top 5 men’s suits with timeless style is the three piece suit. What can we say about the three piece suit, it’s dapper sophistication, it’s stand-alone style that won’t age, it’s on every style guide imaginable that pertains to men’s suits. It allows you to layer in the colder months, and keep a custom tailored appearance when your jacket is off as well. Our favorite aspect to the three piece suit is the vest/waistcoat does not always have to match the suit fabric, as long as it’s a complementing color you can find in the suit we say go for it. Your custom dress shirts can be patterned or solids, same goes for your ties just be careful on your patterns, be sure they complement, not clash.

Men's Suits - iTailor Navy Blue Suit

1) Men’s Suits – Timeless Styles – The Navy Blue Suit (Single or Two Button)

Number one on our list of top 5 men’s suits with timeless style is the navy blue suit.

Think, weddings, work, dates, etc. It can be easily paired with a plethora of custom dress shirt options (solids and patterns alike), and the same applies to ties.

Men’s Custom Suits | The Benefits

Since conception iTailor has had one perpetual goal; to consistently strive to produce the world’s highest quality custom made clothing at the most affordable prices! Our commitment to excellence, with over 45 years of bespoke traditions, has led us to be the World’s Leading Online tailor. As experts to all things related to custom-made clothing we are here to inform you why men’s custom suits don’t cost anywhere near what you think, why off the rack suits often don’t “just cut it”, and why our men’s custom suit quality is second to none. You will actually love owning custom made suits once you know more, so let’s get started!

There are countless ways to address this but we are going to map it out in what we feel is the most beneficial. Here’s why having a custom suit is much less expensive than you thought, a much better option than “off the rack suits”, and finally why you want it done by iTailor.

The first thing that probably comes to your mind when someone says “men’s custom suits” is the price tag. I know it might be extremely difficult to believe but our men’s custom suits, which are exquisitely hand-tailored, range from only $159-$329! These are high quality custom tailored fabrics specifically cut for your body from raw fabric, and at a price still less than many off the rack suits. Now, how can we offer these prices, whilst maintaining bespoke standards? Well, simply because, iTailor is the world’s largest factory-direct custom clothing brand. What does that mean? That means the suits are made here and shipped directly to you. Every single step is done in–house, the fabric is ours and we cut it specifically to your given measurements. Fuse it, steam and press it, pack it, and then off it ships to you. Most companies have a few other steps in their process with other companies, aka “middle-men” this of course drives your end cost. We on the other hand sell directly to the consumer. That is what factory direct means and why our price is the lowest guaranteed price for a custom suit and any custom clothing we produce in the world. Why spend thousands when you can spend hundreds for excellent fabric quality, nearly 45 years of experience, and certified master tailors making your tailor made suits?

Next let’s talk about the main reason custom suits are superior. Think for a second or two what the words “custom” and “fit” mean separately. Now think of their meaning together. That is why men’s suits that are custom fitted have a superior fit. You could be one who might think men’s suits that are “off the rack” are fine, and that’s OK you’re entitled to that thought. Unfortunately, we also know you’ve never tried a custom made suit. Trust us when we say if there wasn’t a very refined level of suiting in custom made suits we wouldn’t be able to sustain business since 1971. But lucky for us, and you, there is. So trust us on this one.  Whether you’re looking for a less baggy pant leg, more room in your seat, or want tighter fitting cuffs, everything is able to be custom designed with custom measurements. We are so certain that you will love your custom suit that we have the industry’s only (Global Guarantee). In short,  if you’re not happy with it, a full refund is issued. It’s as simple as that. We don’t want our customers purchasing what they wouldn’t wear.

When it comes to a men’s suit off the rack there isn’t much you can do regarding its design. The lapel style is what you get, the pattern or fabric it has is what you get, and unfortunately fellas the list continues. Our men’s custom suits design options are almost limitless. We have nearly 300 fabric and pattern options (way more than you will find in any department store/tailor shop), we let you choose whether you want peak, notch, rounded notch, or shawl lapels, pocket placement, pocket angles, the cut on the bottom of your jacket, the number of sleeve buttons (functional buttons), back vents, pant styles like slim, regular or flared, pleat style, belt loops, pant cuffs, contrast fabrics, monogramming and so much more. Your suits design is literally at your fingertips with us and these design options you cannot alter in any off the rack men’s suits, nor do many tailor shops offer the ability either. This is why we know our design options set the industry standard in men’s custom suits.

How To Properly Button Suit Jackets & Blazers

In today’s world we have single breasted suits & blazers that encompass one, two, three, and four buttons. (sometimes even more) We also, have double breasted suits that have many different button styles, especially with some being for show and others being functional. We completely understand style is personal, but when it comes to buttoning suit jackets the rules are just too simple to mess up and we want to show you what is proper. These are the only rules you’ll ever need when it comes to how to properly button your suit jackets and blazers.

 Single Breasted One Button Suit Jackets

There’s one button, you’ve already cut corners and made it as easy on yourself as you can 🙂 simply remember when you’re standing it should be buttoned up, and when you sit down be certain to unbutton it. If you leave it buttoned you can loosen the fabrics integrity and you’ll be uncomfortable just as well.

Single Breasted Two Button Suit Jackets

Probably the most modern and timeless style of men’s suit jackets, you will see this one often no matter where you are. The top button is the only button that should ever be fastened on this jacket. The same applies as above to when sitting down, keep your jacket unbuttoned when you sit.

Single Breasted Three Button Suit Jackets

These suit jackets are a bit less common in 2015 although you still see some people across the nation and the globe staying true with them. When it comes to buttoning the three button it’s just a simple rule to remember, occasionally you can button the top, always button the middle, and the same applies here as with all lowest suit buttons.. never button it. When you sit down, well you should know by now. 🙂

Double Breasted Suit Jackets

These jackets have a different look and different set of rules. Some have just two buttons, four, six, or eight. At any rate, the proper way to go here is still quite simple; you can button them all with the exception of the bottom one, that should be left undone. However, when sitting in double breasted suit jackets you should not have it unbuttoned. Furthermore, you should never wear a double breasted jacket unbuttoned, ever.


That’s it, short, sweet, and right to the point this week gents. No frills or thrills, just straight up style advice to make your dapper self a bit more educated and slick. Keep in mind we offer single breasted suit jackets with one to four buttons and double breasted jackets with four or six buttons with one or two functional buttons (5 different styles).
