Welcome this year’s spring season with your own collection of pure 100% leather belts. Customize it to suit your style and size! Discover our belt collection that has been a huge hit with our treasured customers and fans…
It’s been quite on our iTailor blog lately, but things are now kicking into gear again as we have an amazing 2017 lined up for you guys and It is time to welcome our spring collection! As I have already touched base on our shirt and suit collection in my previous blogs, today I’ll be taking you on a guide of one of our increasingly popular product – Belts!
Launched in early 2016, our belt product was meant as an added value product to compliment our acclaimed custom-shoes offering. Little did we know that this product would take a life of its own as it continues to surpass all our other products in terms of great feedback, turnover, retention and other stats that keeps the marketing and sales team happy. I don’t need the figures to tell me just how good our belts were going to be, as since conceptualization of the product, I could feel that we were going to be offering something unprecedented and revolutionary. Something that would once again challenge the limits of fashion and bespoke!
Sophisticated and Simple 3D Engine
Our belts platform reflect the product it represents, simple and sophisticated. It is based on our most intuitive and advanced algorithm of patented real-time 3D designing engine yet.
You start with 2 choices of Classic or Modern belts, from which you can then go on to customize to millions of combinations.
Limitless Designing Possibilities
We offer 6 designing options for our Classic Belts and 5 designing options for our Modern Belts. In each option there are various choices to select from. Statistically, as many mathematicians would attest to, the combinations that can be created are in millionth terms. Simply said, the choices on offer is limitless. Bold, simple or classy, the choice is yours!
Personalization has always been a stamp of approval for our brand. We have always believed that a true bespoke item should reflect the character of our customers. The best way to imprint this is with initials, or signatures of the individual. We are also the only online tailor who does not charge extra for contrasting or personalization options.
Single Measurement Entry
Measuring body sizes is often a challenge. Especially when it comes to purchasing made-to-measure items, let alone made-to-measure items online. We have grown into the largest tailoring source because of our state-of-the-art technology to tailor clothing and footwear based on minimal measurement entries.
For belts we only require 1 measurement which is your actual waist size!
Oh and we do definitely make for Big and Tall as well as Petite! So if you have trouble finding sizes off the shelf, purchasing from regular brands then you can get a belt made to your waist size at http://www.itailorshoes.com/Designbelts
And if you are just bored of the same style at overtly grossed pricing, then you definitely need an iTailor Belt.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the much awaited, highly anticipated (cue drum-roll) Tailored Women Overcoat! As always, we’ve listened to your loving feedback and have come up with the much coveted demand for Women’s wear. We have introduced our ladies collection with designer pages for suits and overcoat – just in time for Winter!

Last week’s offer was a big hit with our Gentlemen clientele, so do not miss out ladies! Gentlemen, if you have lady friends, family, wives or girlfriends, do recommend the blog discounts onwards so your friends and family can enjoy the same discounts. In the past we have featured only men’s products, but I will be exploring and elaborating more on our women’s collection as we continue to roll out our custom-wear for women. Do note that these discounts are not promoted elsewhere on our website or the internet. It is for our blog readers only 😉
Discounts aside, the main intention of our blog however is to raise awareness of our online tailor-made culture, which is a revolutionary mix of art, skill, innovation, information technology, passion, and experience. We are proud to be the world’s leading online tailor, and perhaps the world’s leading tailor too. This is all down to our philosophy of excellence and value. Delivering the best bespoke products and services, at unbelievable prices.
Keeping this tradition in mind, we have revamped our Ladies collection, re-introducing how one can shop for clothes online. Gone are the days of pre-set in-the-box attires, and forced fashion collection. You can now design your outfit to your style, color, and personal touch. Furthermore, and more importantly, you can now design clothes that actually fit you well.
Big, small, petite, we cater to all! If you find it hard to buy off the shelf and/or consistently need to alter off the rack clothing then we can definitely help you. You are able to customise to your size, and we do not charge extra for big and tall!
Even if you fit into off-the-shelf clothing, we do offer standard sizes, which you can design to your style to superior fabric quality and millions of style combinations at a fraction of branded wear costs (with quality that is on par or superior, that I can assure). Each item is hand-tailored meaning you will be getting the best exclusively made for you.
And if you still cannot find the style you are after (or you are so overwhelmed by the choices on offer) you can simply write to us at email@example.com requesting your styles. Our friendly customer service team is on standby to help assist on requests which are not available on our website or guide you through the style and user interface as well.
Allow me to guide you through our designing process ladies, a short tutorial if you may. We start with a wide panel of choices of the type or style of coat. Ellen, my co-worker, and our chief graphics designer is heading to New York to celebrate the countdown in Times Square. It is going to be one freezing night, and she wants to look fabulous, so let’s pick her brain on the style she’s going for.
Ellen is going for the Double Trenched Coat which is one of the best selling models, because its modern, fashionable and also highly functional. Our cashmere wool fabric is one of the best overcoat fabrics in the market, thoroughly tested to last, easy to care with dry clean, maintains a classy look per our bespoke standards, and most importantly serves its purpose – retains warmth.
Our Double Trenched Coat is designed to be shorter in length, much like a Pea Coat, which is a great alternative by the way. Ellen finds this style perfect to pair with denim, in a casual chic look, and takes comfort in the knowledge that her shorter coat will not be bother especially when she plans to do a lot of walking around the Big Apple. Our overcoats are also constructed with fine hand-crafted workmanship, complimenting the silhouette, not bulking your look.
To quote the infamous fashion icon, Ralph Lauren, “Fashion is something that comes from within you”. And if it comes from within you then you are unlikely to find it off shelf it has to be custom-made for you (sorry to say it, Mr. Lauren, but your quote is a bit contradicting…hmm). Ellen swears by this quote, and channels her inner Vivaldi in the work you have all grown to love – the website graphics and designs of iTailor.com. Similarly, she has a unique sense of style which is reflected in her bold choice of Royal Pink cashmere color for her 12-buttoned Double Trenched Coat which comes with wooden designed buttons, and belt fastener. Of course not everyone enjoys such a bold color, especially in winter when grey and blacks are more in fashion. This is why we offer more than 10 cashmere color choices to choose from for all our styles.
Deep down Ellen is more conservative, which reflects in her inner fabric choice of Deep Red, personally monogrammed with her full name Elizabeth Graham (don’t tell anyone that! she screams, oops). Monogrammingis that additional touch we offer, in addition to contrasts, all of which are free-of-charge, thus making our prices the best online!
Ellen, is short in stature, and finds it hard to shop off-the-shelf anyways (which is why she was destined to be part of our custom-made journey!). In addition she wants the coat to be even shorter to balance her sleeve length. This is why she opts for custom-made measurements by selecting body size and following the video guidelines online, noting to measure her body sizes. Gent’s if you’re still reading, we do offer standard sizes as well if you’re looking to gift or buy on behalf of your Lady friends and family.
Ellen happily checks out and since she is my number 1 fan, I have extended her the $25 discount as well, and will expedite her order free of charge.
She’s looking forward to standing out in Times Square, on New Year’s Eve in her Royal Pink Tailor-Made Trench-coat. It’s going to be one amazing click in the Big Apple.
Winter is Coming, the eye-catching phrase that many will immediately associate with the highly acclaimed (need I say the name?) Game of Thrones Series. As Fall gives way to colder months, winter brings with it, in my opinion, the most distinguished piece of Apparel one can adorn, namely, The Tailored Overcoat.
Winter is Coming, but not yet, which gives you plenty of time to start looking for your perfect winter tailored Overcoat. And what makes this season’s collection so exciting is that we have just launched our Ladies Overcoat Collection, in line with our tradition of Revolutionizing Fashion. This blog explores the option for our Men’s collection, and I will follow up the series with more on our Ladies’ collection next week. So Ladies and Gents, its time to get your Perfect Coat on!
What is the perfect Coat?
1. Perfect Size – Meaning Made-to-Measure.
The Overcoat is anything but a simple outerwear, and fitting is perhaps the most important feature of a tailored overcoat. During the cold winter months, you are already adorned with layers of winter clothing. An oversized fit will not lend a flattering look, where else too slim and you won’t be able to move. Tailoring an overcoat to your size and style will compliment your silhouette, and lend the distinguished look I mentioned earlier, even when casually worn with semi-formal attires.
Do you find it difficult to shop for coats off-the-rack? iTailor.com can help you! Customize to your Style and Length, just as reviewed by one of our happy customers below:
“I received my custom designed topcoat last week just in time for a series of snow storms here in New England and I want you to know how happy I am with it. I couldn’t find a ‘full-length’ overcoat that was as long as I wanted at any store or on any website, so when I learned of iTailor.com I designed the coat I have been looking for. It is very well made and was constructed using exactly the measurements I gave. This fully customized coat was amazingly inexpensive” J.T. Belmont, USA.

The main function of an Overcoat is warmth. As synesthetic products are more apparent in the fashion industry, the quality of coats, and suits in general have substantially decreased, whilst prices continue to rise. You are in fact, being tricked to paying for the Brand rather than substance. Our main mission as a Custom-Made brand is to ensure value-for-money, as well as added value features, for our customers. Our wool quality ensures that your coat will keep you warm, without being grotesquely thick as to be overbearingly uncomfortable.
2. Style and Character
An overcoat is a long coat with sleeves that is worn on top of something else. The Overcoat carries with it a certain element of sophistication, that lends a charming look when adorned with more casual Jeans and Pullovers. But when garbed over a Tailored Suit, your Tailored Overcoat will be strikingly aristocratic. And this is not surprising as historically, overcoats have been worn exclusively for formal events to establish a social status or has been part of a professional or military uniform.
Traditionally worn as a long double breasted coat, that extends itself way beyond the knee, Today’s coats are more stylish with single and double breasted choices being equally popular, as well as the shorter Pea Coats, and Duffel Coats. Traditional Tailors, such as ourselves, will still lean towards the more conservative style of Single and Double Breasted Long Coats for Men’s – after all, you do not need to tamper much with the Rolls Royce of Men’s Clothing. But conservative or not, you can design your tailored overcoat to over millions of designs on our website.
What we can do for you at iTailor.com? 4 things you need to get on your next coat …
Wool and Color – We offer 10 colors of the highest quality wool blend in colors that range from the more formal gray scale / black, to the highly unusual Green and Red. Now you can stand out in Style!

Make it truly Yours: We take pride in our craftsmanship, creating wonders of art with each item. The intricate lining details can be designed to 10 colors, and you can make your coat truly bespoke with a monogram especially made for you.
Customized Length: Personally, as an individual of shorter stature, I simply cannot buy off-the-rack. It is hard enough to dress in Suits, and Shirts, but when it comes to Overcoats, it is a nightmare to get the right length when shopping for one off shelf. If I do end up buying even the smallest one, I still need to fork a hefty sum to a local tailor for alteration.
iTailor is my perfect custom solution. I can specify my desired length. I know friends who are Big & Tall, who are our returning favorite customers In addition you can always contact our friendly customer service for advice or more information.

Hurry up! Limited offer till October 15th only! – Get your Tailor-Made Suit Styles for Fall 2016 collection that even GQ is talking is about.
A few weeks ago we introduced an article about our custom made shoes, the many style options we have, and just how affordable they are. As they say “numbers never lie” it appears that you gentlemen want to hear more about our custom made shoes. So we figured we’d come back with some further insights on the shoe GQ calls the shoe of the season (which is also an iTailor Best-Seller) and what we feel would be a great addition to your spring and summer looks this year. The monk strap which was quite exclusive about 5 years ago is now blazing the trail working with elegant business attire and also being doubled with casual wear like a pair of jeans and a blazer. Along with many of our other custom made shoes our monk straps come in under $99 as well, currently only $89. That price is incredible for monk straps in general, the fact they are custom designed by you and custom fitted for you just makes them all that more appealing to all you sartorial and budget savvy gents out there.
Our custom made monk strap shoes come in four separate styles; burnished leather, premium leather, sheepskin leather, and suede leather. Each pair has a multitude of color options, some have brogues, and leather split options as well. It is said that the most noticed item on a man is what can be found on his feet, so we like to be sure you have enough options to create your own personal style just as you see fit. Going one step further we want to mention how to make your custom made shoes last. Adding blake stitching to your sole, it grants much better support for the overall craftsmanship and connects the upper and lower part of the shoe for a maximum lifespan.
One of the benefits of the monk strap (which is quite apparent) is the fact there are no laces to worry about with these shoes, so if that’s a problem for you then these are a great bet. Instead of laces you have either a single or double strap of leather that fastens to a buckle and closes the shoe. Another benefit of these monk straps is the choices, we have single and we have double monk strap custom made shoes. Some fashion and style experts out there suggest when wearing double monks with a more relaxed and casual outfit it’s OK to make your own rules and not buckle the top buckle. Now if you’re wearing a more formal style of monk like our burnished leather monks these will work exceptionally well with any black, dark navy, or grey suits. If you’re looking for a little boost in flare we suggest wearing a hemmed or even cuffed pant with these custom made shoes in order to show them off a bit more.
Below you will see four photos of our main custom made monk strap shoes, their intricate details, style differences, and some of the color choices and design options you would have during the design process on our site. Out of these four styles two are more casual and two are more formal, but we would say the most versatile pair would probably be the premium leather monk straps as they could work with casual attire but also be worn to the office more so than the others.
Click below on any of the images to begin designing your very own custom made monk strap shoes.
Whether you’re into the single or double monk straps as a potential for your custom made shoes we hope some of this information was helpful and insightful. As you can see we have many different styles and nearly unlimited design options for you to play with as you create your own custom made shoes. Whether you’re looking for a more formal pair of dress shoes or sort of in between that can work casually these are undoubtedly one of the styles we would highly recommend.

We offer the best prices for Tailor-Made suits online – this is guaranteed. But did you know that you are not just getting the best prices, but also the best quality? Yes, our Suits are indeed worth thousands of dollars. So how do we make $1,000 Suits at $159? This post answers the key question that everyone has been asking!
In my previous post I talked about why one should opt for a Tailor-Made Suit. My main reason was Fit, Style and Price,
I have often talked about and do believe that we have all experienced a case of ‘too good to be true’. More so in this day and age of Online Shopping where people do not get what they order online.
Sure these are not expensive purchases which you can afford to shop based on trial and error, hit or miss, by hook or by crook methods. But these scamming, fraudulent and unethical companies are affecting the more honest traders and establishments who do provide ‘too-good-to-be true products.’
Side Topic: What are the ways to avoid fake purchases scams online?
1. Buy through credible channels such as Amazon (yes, we are featured).
2. Make sure they offer Money Back Guarantees. iTailor.com offers 100% money back guarantee!
3. The site should be affiliated with Trusted Partners and Payment Gateway. iTailor.com is partner with World’s Largest Logistic Company, DHL, and World’s most secure Online Payment System, Paypal.
4. They should have Positive Reviews, and are Highly Ranked!
All of the mentioned points above take Time, Effort, Dedication, Capital, and Credibility to build, and more importantly maintain. To paraphrase the saying, it is easier to be no. 1 than to remain no. 1. Any site that ticks off the above checklist, such as iTailor.com, can be guaranteed to be genuinely trustworthy and safe to purchase from.
Coming back to our main topic, how it it that we offer ‘too good to be true’ bespoke products at ‘too good to be true’ prices?
It starts with a vision. The unofficial mission statement of the brand, I daresay, is to provide the Highest Quality Bespoke Products, with the best Service, at Prices that everyone can afford. Simply put, it is the creation of Affordable Luxury in the Tailor Made business.
The concept of Affordable Luxury is a new niche, one that we have helped coined. You may not notice it, but this niche is slowly but surely being inadvertently marketed to the affluent masses.
And the driving force behind it (you guessed it!) is The internet. Think about that recent holiday you took to a beach retreat in South East Asia, or a ski trip in Europe, or a cruise in the Bahamas. Just a decade earlier, these trips would be exclusive to the wealthy costing in the tens of thousands of dollars. However, nowadays you can cruise in exotic locations from just $499!
Even the latest branded luxurious accessories are now traded at spectacular prices. Think about the last watch, belt, or sunglasses you bought online at 70% off? Those are all luxurious items which pre-online shopping era would set you back five times the amount paid today.
You are therefore correct in deducing that the introduction of e-commerce has benefitted consumers greatly. The elimination of storefront expenses has allowed numerous businesses, including iTailor.com, to offer consumers true quality and value for money products delivered directly to you.
As revolutionary as e-commerce businesses may be (and it does seem like everyone is jumping on this gold rush to open their own e-product, e-service, e-marketing, e-this, e-that), the survival rate of online businesses, especially those offering Luxury, depends on other more key components, not just price.
These key components are Quality of the product, Quality of Service, Quality of Website and Credibility.
Quality of Product
Quality is Key – the words echoed by our CEO. It was what first drove our humble enterprise as a traditional tailor since 1971 to revolutionise the sub-parred production of suits in the early 2000s by Tailoring establishments worldwide, including the well-known economical priced hubs of Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and some parts of the Americas.
It was this drive, this integral realisation to deliver products that matched its value, to clients who appreciated value for money, that allowed the company to secure contracts by world leading companies in the hospitality and clothier industry such as Wynn, Venetian and MGM resorts worldwide.
Being The Source!
But quality production is always attainable and sustainable if it is built and developed in-house. Being a direct source of production, unlike other establishment, we continue to control and increase the quality of our production, for our every growing clients and partners (some of which are world leading brands), without the irksome marketing costs and sales costs imposed by middleman agencies.
A successful affordable-luxury online company usually stems from a successful traditional business format with heritage. Think about any other Luxury brand – say Hugo Boss. When you think about Hugo Boss, you think about Men’s Premium Luxury, steeped in heritage from the early 1900’s. Hugo Boss and other luxury brands are also catering to the online world, with special prices with attractive online discounts. People know of Hugo Boss from years of branding built by storefront sales and service.
Similarly, iTailor.com is a Third Generation tailoring enterprise with over 40 years of cultivated tailoring excellence. Started off as a humble establishment in 1971 – essentially a mom and pop tailor store – we now house the largest pool of skilled tailors in the world. Correction, We house the largest pool of PASSIONATE skilled tailors in the world, who are dedicated to their craft. Our master tailors create your products out of love for their skill, and in the knowledge that this skill shall be cherished and passed on to future generations in a nurturing and rewarding environment.
iTailor.com prides itself on not only being the world’s largest online tailor, but also leaders in Customer Satisfaction, as well as Customer Retention rates. We have the highest returning customer rates in the industry, which is testament not only to the Quality of our products, but also the pre and after sales service that we offer. Our dedicated Customer Service team has the fastest response time in the industry, and we continue to partner with Customer Service optimisation Metric to improve our service dedication.
Your suits are passionately handcrafted from the Direct Source of Tailoring Production which incorporates 3rd Generation Master Tailors, with 45 years of skill, with innovative blend of IT, Skill and Art.
Your suits are ordered in a Fun and Revolutionary 3D Designing online platform, that allows you to Self design and Create millions of design combinations.
We continue to strive for perfection to deliver the best tailor-made products and services directly to you without any middleman costs. The benefit goes to you as a consumer.
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!
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!
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 Realmenrealstyle.com illustrating how your suit should fit. And chances are the suit you’re wearing does not fit this way…
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.
Yes, custom-made suits, or tailor made suit are well known for their price tag.
But fortunate for the fashion world, we now live in an age of online shopping. And boy what a world it is – from noble brand house to generic models, you are able to buy products to your liking at a discount.
But what if we could go one step further and offer a fashion model that not only offers some of the most attractive prices for tailor-made clothing, but also allows you to self customise, and measure your own suit? All for less than $199? Talk about killing two birds with one stone, eh?
Sure, that’s a great idea, but it must be a case of too good to be true. Well not for our brand iTailor.com. Based on over 40 years of tailoring experience, and currently a third generation tailor, our humble establishment has now grown to house over 400 skilled tailors, and is continuing to innovate the tailoring world by offering simple solutions to online self tailoring.
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.
2. The Style – if you are going custom, you might as well make your suit truly yours. This means opting for the best fabrics, the best construction, and personalising your suit to your liking. These options should include the ability to personalise both the interior of the jacket as well as the exterior of the jacket.
You should be able to opt for contrast selections that matches the latest fashion, or choose lining colours that are bold or conservative to match your personality. In addition, you should also be able to add your own special monograms that really puts the finishing touch on a truly custom-made or tailor-made suit.
3. The Price – There used to be only 2 reasons for owning a Tailor Made Suit; The Fit and The Style. But now we can feature pricing into the equation, because with our revolutionary state-of-the-art pattern algorithms derived from Saville Row, combined with our innovative real-time online 3D Designer, we leave the designing to you, at prices you can afford. This concept, dubbed affordable luxury, allows you to create your own bespoke products at prices that match, if not better than off-the-rack purchases, or high priced tailor establishments. We also guarantee that we offer the best tailor-made prices online, without charging extra for designing details such as contrasts or monograms.
So how exactly do we make $1,000 dollar suits at $159. Stay tuned to find out more in our next blogs as we explore this topic as well as our upcoming topics on What to look for in a Tailor Made Suit. Feel free to leave a comment below, and I’ll get back to you ASAP! Happy Designing.
Summer 2016 is in Full Swing. The Sun is out and the pool and beaches are beckoning. The most anticipated season of the year brings with it a minimalist Fashion sense that is easy to don with our step-by-step guide to creating your perfect custom shirt…
When it comes to Summer Fashion, or any other season for that matter, there are three main ingredients to consider for any article of clothing (i.e Custom Shirt / Pants / Jacket) for a successful fashion recipe (pardon the cooking puns!)
The Key Elements are Color, Fabric and Style
Step 1: Pick a Pastel Color
The Golden Rule For Summer Fashion is you can never go wrong with Pastel!
But what exactly are Pastel Shades?
Without going into the technicalities of spectrum, Pastel colors are Bright Colors that have a Soft Look. For Example the Baby Pink color below…
As mentioned earlier, pastel shades are bright in color. Scientifically speaking, the light colors will reflect the heat of the summer sun, thus keeping you cool. But because of their Soft tone, Pastel colors are very appealing to the eyes, especially in glaring, bright sunlight.
Pastel Custom Shirt are also highly adaptive – they pair perfectly well with lighter colored shorts as well as darker denim jeans, which allows you to wear them casually during the day, as well as for more formal summer events in the evenings.
Fan of White
I love white custom shirt but does White fall into the Pastel equation? Maybe, maybe not. Does it matter? Not really.
I’m a fan of white shirts because of their versatility in fashion. I can opt for a buttoned down, long-sleeve custom shirt to adorn formally with suit and tie for work. AND I can choose to wear the same shirt as an open collar, with sleeves rolled up for more relaxed occasions. The latter is an ideal option for Summer fashion as well.
Many may frown upon the idea of mixing crisp white working shirts as leisure wear. Firstly there is the worry that the shirt may be excessively worn out or crease relentlessly in odd places, rendering it inappropriate for work. Secondly, when worn casually, a plain white shirt may be deemed too boring on its own.
I on the other hand have simple solutions to both these issues, which are explored in the next steps
Step 2: Choosing the Right Fabric.
We are increasingly heading into the Fashion age where ‘there is no certain wrong or right.’ Anything goes! Just pause and reflect on the modern Fashion sense on your local commute to work in the subway (or tram? flight?). You’re as likely to be seated next to a person who’s dressed up in the latest GQ Suit Style, or someone who’s in the latest trend of Hoodie, Tee and Jeans.
However, when it comes to Summer Custom Shirt Fabrics there are only 2 acceptable Fabrics. Cotton and Linen.
Logically, these are the only two options because of their “breathable” properties, allowing your body to naturally ventilate in the summer heat.
iTailor.com only offers 100% cotton that are of the finest grade, as testament by their world’s largest customer turnover rate, as well as their highest ranked status on Truspilot.
The cotton selection offered is easy care, which makes it ideal to be used as both formal and informal wear.
Step 3: Style it! Add Contrasts and Roll-Up Sleeves.
Alright I’ve selected my pastel shade (Pink), and it’s in 100% pure cotton. Now how do I eliminate the “plain old boring look”?
If you buy off the rack, then you’re probably stuck with the Plain Old Boring Look. So Go Custom!
Here are simple ways to spice up your Pastel (or White) Shirts.
Add Contrasts – Add contrasts to the cuff and collar. Inside contrasts (in Paisley or Patterned Cottons) are highly recommend for White Shirts.
Roll-Up Sleeve – Because it is the Quintessential Summer Custom Shirt Style.
Tri-Tab Bottom – So you can wear the Custom Shirt casually un-tucked.
Personalise – Add a monogram at the bottom of the placket or on the cuff to exude confidence and attention to detail.
Tuxedos are the timeless crown jewel of Men’s Fashion. It is essential for your most momentous days, be it Prom, Weddings, or well to do Ceremonies. Whilst it has been the norm to Rent a Tux, a Well-Tailored Tuxedo is a must when you want to look your best!
So why is it that people opt for Rented Tuxedos? Price is a big, if not the main factor. The hassle of finding a good tailor, is usually the second.
ITAILOR OFFERS YOU SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO THESE PROBLEMS.
Our Videos Highlight The BESPOKE nature of our Production Standards. You can be confident that each item is being exclusively hand-tailored just for you.
TO RECAP HERE ARE THE MAIN REASONS TO OPT FOR AN iTAILOR TUXEDO
Custom Tuxedos Will Fit You Better
Let’s be honest, have you ever rented a tuxedo that fit you well? The vests are usually trash, the pants never come close to how you want them, and the jackets certainly don’t have the tailored look you really want. When you rent a tuxedo you give the tailor your measurements correct? Correct! What they do is they match your measurements with a measurement chart aka “size guide” that aligns with the your measurements. Then they place those sizes on the order form for your tuxedo. Yea it sounds like an exact science to me too! 🙂 It’s simple common sense gentlemen, just like that with a custom made suit vs. an off the rack/ready made suit.. they can’t compete where they don’t compare.
You may be thinking to yourself, when would I ever have the opportunity to wear this again, isn’t that why everyone rents them? Great question, here’s your answer: Any invite that says (formal, black tie, or black tie optional), the opening of any opera, ballet, or symphony, any ball or formal dance party, all formal dinner parties, or dinner at any formal restaurant. Also take a peek at what GQ has to say. Remember, choose wisely and get yourself and your groomsmen some custom tuxedos.. fit is everything.
Custom Tuxedos Surface Memorable Fashion
No matter what the event is, a formal dinner party, gala, or most commonly a wedding, you know about this event way ahead of time. You plan for it, and you also need to be dressed to the nines. A tuxedo is a must, but my friend.. memorable times call for memorable fashions. Not everyone can be as suave as the groomsmen with the custom tuxedos, and not everyone will understand just how important such events are, events that demand the presence of a custom made tuxedo. You on the other hand understand just how stylish you should be, how important this event is (Maybe to others more so than you),or you wouldn’t be reading this. No matter the event always keep in mind any special occasion calls for a special appearance.
Custom Tuxedos Are Less Money
Our custom tuxedos range from $179 – $199. And just like everything on our site we offer unprecedented design-ability in your hands. From fabric color (black, white, red, and navy) to lapel styles (shawl, notch, peak, etc.), to the intricacies with jacket and pants pockets, jacket vents, sleeve buttons, and the list goes on.

The choice is yours gentlemen, choose wisely and in all things have fun!

When you hear the term “Custom Made” or “Tailor Made” a certain thought of exceptional quality comes to mind. You’re filled with the sensation that whatever is being made in this manner will be exactly as you want it to be and it will be the best that it could be.
Unfortunately there has always been a premium that comes with such craftsmanship. Many always use the old adage “you get what you pay for” when it comes to premium pricing on premium products. In many instances those people are usually correct. Personally speaking, I wouldn’t want to save money on my mattress or bed comforter nor the safety & reliability of the vehicle I am in that guards my life every day. But that’s me and I would pay what is needed to ensure my happiness. The same could also be applied to specific things like the brake system on a mountain bike, or vitamins & supplements. Cut corners on the brakes and you won’t be cutting many corners on that bike, go for the cheaper and easier found bottle of vitamin C and you’re probably getting artificial colors, fillers, and other toxins when your goal was to help your health.
But this is exactly where we turn the tables and do the unthinkable, we offer the premium hand made craftsmanship and we offer it at a price that makes all our custom made suits affordable to anyone. We don’t believe custom made goods are only for the elite, we believe everyone should have the ability to afford custom made suits, shirts, coats, etc.
iTailor sets a new standard regarding this concept; we provide an extremely high level of quality craftsmanship with our custom made garments for a price that is simply unmatched across the globe. Every day we receive hundreds of orders for our custom suits, and those suits whether they be linen, our wool blend, chino, or any other suit fabric are made with exacting detail and absolute precision. It’s not enough for us to offer something as revolutionary as custom suits online, we want to continue to be the world’s largest factory-direct custom made clothing brand in the world. We know that through our continued pursuit of excellence, in quality and service, and our philosophy of offering the best price on the internet at the best quality we are continuing to do just that – as testament by our ranking as the World’s Highest Ranked Tailor by Trustpilot.com.
Today suits are all over the place; you can find them in store fronts downtown, in department stores, and online. Now in past when people spoke about custom suits it was only because some big shot CEO, movie star, or professional athlete was the subject of the discussion. That’s because custom made suits are commonly known to cost in the thousands when created by great tailors in great cities. That’s where we come in, with nearly 45 years of custom tailoring experience we’ve been suiting the world in custom threads since 1971. Furthermore our company has had one goal since conception; consistently strive to produce the world’s highest quality custom made clothing at the most affordable price around the world. When it comes to our custom suits the story is no different and possibly even more important as men’s custom made suits are one of the world’s most sold custom made goods. Our price is not the only benefit, don’t forget our suits are custom fitted, but they’re also custom designed by Y O U. Our site literally is comprised of millions of different design options from our custom shirts and suits, tuxedos, overcoats, shoes, and more. We believe, if style is personal then why shouldn’t you be able to design your own? So we make certain our sites “design – ability” is second to none with more options than one could imagine.
Our Unprecedented Pricing
Just like the clothing we make, our pricing truly turns heads and many people can’t even believe the prices our suits go for. In the United States alone you can’t even find a ready-made/off the rack suit for $159, but guess what our entry level suit of the week sells for every single week?
$159, you guessed it.
(BE SURE TO SIGN UP BELOW FOR OUR NEWSLETTER TO GET THAT WEEKLY DEAL AND MANY MORE EVERY WEEK)
We also have 100% cotton chino suits for those looking for a more relaxed and laid back look for only $199. Our newest collection of extremely modern colors and fabrics can be found for only $239, and gentlemen this is a custom, handmade suit, people are going to think you went to NYC to have this thing constructed.
Last but certainly not least is my favorite and what any men’s style blogs will tell you is an absolute must have; the timeless three piece suit. These suits range from $269 – $329 depending on the choice of fabric. These are custom three piece suits for less than $500, hell they’re less than $350! Don’t be the last guy on the planet to know us, test us, love us, and spread the word to your friends. Many will wonder how these prices are even possible, the answer is simple; we are the world’s largest factory-direct custom clothing brand. That means the suits are made here and sent directly to you. Every single step is done in–house, the fabric is ours and we cut it precisely to your given measurements. We then fuse it, steam it and press it, pack it, and then off it ships to you. Most businesses have a few other stages in their procedure with other companies, aka “middle-men”, this of course drives up your end cost. We on the other hand sell straight to the buyer. 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 knowledge, experience, and master tailors making your tailor made suits!

If you follow our blog or our social media channels, you will notice that we often speak about Men’s 3-Piece Suits. The reason behind this is quite simple – if you’re a “dapper gent” or striving to be one, this is undoubtedly a classic and timeless suit you need in your closet (If not a few). This article focuses on the top three advantages to wearing a well tailored three piece suit.
THREE PIECE SUITS – THE FEEL
If you have ever worn a three piece suit you can certainly attest to this, but even if you haven’t yet you will see just how logical this fact is. The feel of three piece suits compared to that of a two piece simply differs due to, “ta-da”, the third piece. The waistcoat aka known as the vest is an extremely integral part of the success for all three piece suits. It is absolutely imperative to have your vest well-tailored so that it contours to your body perfectly. The feel you have from this is just being more held in place or more held together. Gents, think of when you hit that baseball diamond or the football field with, or without your jock. That’s the difference in feel. It also has a slimming affect even though its an extra layer, and shows a strong balance of fabric from your shoulders to your shoes. Our custom made three piece suits are available in over 220 different fabric options, so whether you’re looking for some glen check, pencil stripes, herringbone, or solids, we’ve got you covered. Finally it is important to think about how it would actually make YOU feel, personally. When you unbutton your jacket (single breasted) as you take a seat, you’re still buttoned up (your vest/waistcoat) which still gives you that distinguished look, you don’t need to worry about how tightly tucked your shirt is, your vest handles it for you. When you stand and your hands are on your hips or in your pockets and your jacket flaps are back again, you still appear suited up and in charge. These are undoubtedly some of the subtle but impacting style marks you make wearing your three piece suits. You remain put together at all times.
Now when it comes to the fit of a three piece suit the major focus needs to be the waistcoat/vest. It should slide down the sides of your body sleek with no protrusions, lumps, or anything else. Make sure it’s still breathable and comfortable and tailored properly, it shouldn’t act like a corset it should be a well-tailored vest. One very important aspect to the fit that also plays into your overall style with this piece is the collar type you choose for your vest. We currently offer the regular open v-neck, notch, peak, and shawl lapel options for our custom made vests with all our three piece suits. Personally I think different styles work for different reasons, if you’re looking to wear the vest alone at times then I would promote getting one with lapels, but if you plan to use it solely with the suit more of the time than you can certainly go without. Collars and lapels help to define a man’s face, whether they’re on a shirt, suit jacket or a vest and if you wear this vest alone with no jacket lapels then you should have some on your vest to help define your face. Since the fit of most three piece suits are a bit more snug especially around the belt line belts with this suit are not entirely needed and can make you look a bit puffy around your waistline. (The choice is yours) Remember these intricacies regarding the fit of your three piece suits and you will have your suit the suit among suits.
THREE PIECE SUITS – THE FASHION
When it comes to what statement this suit makes, or even better yet what you can do with it, where you can wear it or even how you can wear it, the options are plentiful. Three piece suits give every man the the following options: You can wear the vest alone with a button down and jeans, you can wear the vest with another two piece suit as long as the colors and fabrics are complementing each other, you can wear the suit as a two piece and leave the vest at home, you can also (my personal favorite) wear it with a pair of jeans and a blazer, you can wear it to the office, events, and formal events. You can also wear this suit with or without a tie, the only thing I would mention is to always keep it buttoned otherwise the slimming and proper gentleman persona it provides will slip away. When it comes to three piece suits, or any suits for that matter there are some very specific style rules each man must know. See our list of the top 15 rules now. Follow these tips and insights and you will also have the top three advantages to your three piece suits nailed.

If you’re the type of guy who lives a lifestyle where you only need one tailor made suit, make it a CHARCOAL COLORED SUIT. Some say this is even more proper for funerals than a black suit, but either way it’s a very versatile color and can be worn to a multitude of events for different occasions.
We highly recommend the Charcoal Grey 3799-10 that has a Sharkskin Element to it. (contact our customer service representative for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org)
When it comes to tailor made suit Styles, one of the most important things to know and learn about is your Lapels. Know the different styles – Peak, Notch, Shawl – know what you like, what works for the suit your purchasing, and how they align with the collar style your shirt has and the size/width of your tie.
As a rule of thumb, you can never go wrong with a Single-Breasted Two Button Notch Lapel Suit. For Double-Breasted Suits, opt for the Peak Lapel.
(Real time designing of over a million fabric/design combinations on our Award Winning website www.itailor.com)
More on Lapels: Today’s Fashion are leaning towards thinner lapels – you are able to easily customize your lapel width by contacting our Customer Service representative at email@example.com.
*Request a Top-Stitch – Our newest Complimentary Feature that allows you to feel like a million bucks with a Saville Row Swag!
The Tie. You can never go wrong with Tie Colors, so Show-Off your favorite color. It is also a good idea to have the basic, Black, Grey, Red, Blue in stock!
The Width of your Tie, and the Width of your Suit Lapels, should be Porportionate
Your Tie should hang right at the belt line. Not above it or below it. You are able to customize and order ties here!
The Pant Problem: Buying off-the-rack Pants may leave you short-changed – literally, as some pants may fit your waist but are too short in length or vice versa; too long requiring hemming. A decent pair of tailored pants, that covers your socks while seated is a must for any respectable gent – even if paired casually with a Polo T-Shirt or Dress Shirt.
With our Custom-Pants Designer you are able to get your Pants Made-To-Measure!
Double Breasted Suit Styles can get tricky, but you want to always remember two things; never wear the jacket unbuttoned, and when you’re wearing a 6 button (2 functional button) jacket, only button the top functional button.
Know whether your jacket is a No vent, Single vent or Double vent, know what you prefer and know why. No Vent and Single Vent will have maintain the shape of the jacket, at the expense of mobility – it is recommended for Thinner torsos. Double Vents on the other hand allows for increased mobility, and recommended for Big and Tall individuals.
Golden Rule: Always unbutton your suit when seated 🙂
Your Shirt Cuffs should always show about 1/4 to 1/2 past the length of your jacket cuff.
The Modern Suit is acceptably worn as an open-collar. Therefore, when wearing a Suit without a Tie, the shirt-collar must be on point! iTailor shirts offers you unlimited designing options when it comes to shirt collars and contrasts – with complimentary collar slots for collar stays even. We recommend our signature Italian Collar as the smartest collar style to be worn as an open-collar attire sans tie.
Whether you you’re sitting, standing, or walking your pants should always be comfortable to you. You should also always be able to fit one finger in your waistband.
With single breasted suit style you want to make sure that you only ever button the top button of a 2 button suit, and the middle button on a 3 button suit. For even more information we suggest taking a look at GQ’s Guide To Suits as they go into great detail regarding men’s suit style.

When it comes to custom shirts most people think of the custom fit, the price, and a few special features like monogramming. Here at iTailor it’s an entirely different story. We add design features you can’t find anywhere else online and offered at a price you won’t find anywhere else in the world. We then place that unprecedented design-ability directly in your hands. Now, when it comes to designing custom shirts on our site an argument can be made that the original 3D design engine is already on steroids and it does an excellent job. We agree, and we appreciate the thousands of customers who have let us know they feel this way. However, some, always want more and sometimes there is a yearning or a thirst that must be quenched; and we recognize that completely. Enter in our Custom Shirts Pro* Designer. We knew there were many of you that wanted even more design options for your custom shirts, so we figured why not set yet another precedent and give them what they want.
If you look at the original 3D Designer and the Custom Shirts Pro* Designer you will see that there are many similarities; the backgrounds are the exact same, you can still view all fabrics the same way, and you also have all the same shirt choices like our fabric of the week, solid colors, patterns, and certain new fabrics as well. But there are differences, subtle as they may be, they surface as YOU become the virtual master tailor and utilize our more advanced and enhanced design options as you create your custom shirts. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the top 3 advantages to the Custom Shirts Pro* Designer.
Back Detail/Front Placket Design-Ability For Custom Shirts
As you venture through the 11 design areas within the tool you will find No.4 (Front) and No.7 (Back Detail). The unprecedented design options offered in these areas will make your custom shirts as unique as you could possibly imagine or want. Under the No.4 Front area you will see in the photos below you have the options to choose a single placket, a box placket, or hidden buttons on your front placket (if you need any assistance check out the HOW TO VIDEO located in the pop up box), you also have the options to place contrasting fabric on your placket on the inside and outside, if you want it to just be trim, and or keep your placket slim or on an angle. Under the No. 7 Back Detail area you will see in the photos below you have the options to choose a plain back, box pleats, side pleats or center pleats on your custom shirts(if you need any assistance check out the HOW TO VIDEO located in the pop up box) you also then have the option to choose a back york placket. These unparalleled features are NOT offered in the original 3D designer for custom shirts and one of the top 3 reasons why you pay a little more to play a lot more in our Pro* Designer.
Collar/Cuff/Sleeve Detailed Design Features
Now when it comes the design features you can use to add truly unique style to your custom shirts, these next areas are where you can really have some fun. No.2 Collar, No.3 Sleeve, and No.5 Cuffs. Under the No.2 Collar area you will see in the photos below you have the option to choose from 13 different collar styles, and design from 7 different collar contrast styles with multiple fabrics. Under No.3 Sleeve you can choose a long sleeve, roll up, or short sleeve shirt as well as change your sleeve fabric, and add elbow patches. Finally, Under No.5 Cuffs you have the choice of 9 different cuff styles from round, mitered, and french, as well as choose from five different cuff contrast fabric styles. (if you need any assistance check out the HOW TO VIDEO located in the pop up box) These options are all offered in the Custom Shirts Pro* Designer.
Front & Centered Visual Focus For Design
The biggest difference in the Custom Shirts Pro* Designer is the actual platform in which it sits. The design is centrally focused and right up in your face, it allows you see everything easily. All the design options are right at your fingertips as you create your custom shirts and there’s nothing distracting you from your main objective. Our data shows the majority of our customers prefer to design their tailor made shirts on either a desktop or laptop computer rather than mobile devices. This is understandably due to the vast amount of design options, colors, and intricate details that go into designing each custom garment. Which is one of the reasons behind the central focus with our Custom Shirts Pro* Designer. You can see all 11 categories to design with, circle back to any fabric choice on the left, and change the view of your shirt with an open or closed collar and give it a 360 degree turn to view the back as well.
Keep these features in mind the next time you log onto our site and plan to purchase some custom shirts, they will undoubtedly grant some stand alone style.

There is actually a lot to know when it comes to collar styles. This overshadowed aspect of dress shirts is not something that should be overlooked. Every man should know how to choose the right collar for the type of dress shirt he purchases. You should know what collar styles mean, why collar styles matter, and why it’s an important nugget of style information for your overall polished look. iTailor offers you 11 different collar styles when creating your custom made dress shirts (which is also illustrated in this article).
The collar can say a lot about the man inside that collar. It can say you’ve worked hard and made something of yourself, it could say you don’t have a clue how to dress yourself, or it could say you’re an absolute style icon, whether you’re out for dinner with colleagues, on a date, or behind the desk. What we want to do is make certain you don’t fall into the second mentioned category. Collar styles, if chosen properly can help to accentuate certain structural features of your face in an effort to keep you looking polished like the dapper gent you are. Choosing the wrong collars will do the exact opposite. It will accentuate facial flaws and just make you look like something hideous, so pay attention these insights are important!
Collar Styles – Why They Matter
More often than not if you’re sporting a button down dress shirt there’s a reason for it. You’re either at work, on a date, at an event of some sort, or you’re just a dapper dressing gent all the time and your purpose is always looking your best. Regardless of which you fall into, you’re trying to look GREAT. Some say success is in the details, ok, I say success is in the details, but it is.. and in all things. Let me ask you something, if the goal is to look good why not pull out all the stops and do your very best? That being said, the wrong collar style won’t make or break you but it will certainly make a large impact on making or breaking you. There are three main collar types (Straight, Turndown, Round) Arrow cut or straight point collars have closer set points and generally are known to elongate the face, this is of course more suitable for men with a rounder face or who are shorter in stature. Turndown collars like spread options are the most well known and have many different options for collar styles.(spread speaks about the distance between the collar points) Round collar types are also known as club collars and are predominantly worn to more dressy affairs, these collar type should only be worn by slender, in-shape and or taller men.
Certain collar styles are going to be more suitable for casual dress affairs, while others are more suitable for work, and or formal events. Understanding the difference is critical, no one wants to be seen wearing a corduroy or tweed blazer in Miami in July. The same applies to any style within your ensemble including the collars of your custom dress shirts. Button down collar styles are predominantly known for being worn in more casual places, however they can work very well with a bowtie for a more upscale event. Tab collars have a snap behind the tie area which makes the tie knot push up and out, these are usually worn in business settings by those who are quite confident in their fashions and want to draw attention to their tie, themselves, and overall ensemble. When it comes to making an impact being in-style we recommend a spread or cutaway collar for the office with a tie, if you work in a more relaxed industry like a marketing firm or tech company button downs can work very well. If you’re looking to stand out at any event or gathering we suggest looking at our modern and batman collars which will add a bit of rare flare to your collars. When it all boils down you have to ask yourself what makes you comfortable and happy with your appearance, always remember style is personal.
Collar Styles – The iTailor Advantages
Now when it comes to the collar styles we offer on our custom made dress shirts, we try our best to cover everything and anything a man could want. This is why we have 11 different collar styles for you to choose from when designing your shirts. (pictured throughout this post) Whether you’re into showing your confidence as an up and comer with a cutaway collar or a bit more trendy and in a more relaxed workplace looking for button downs we’ve got you covered. From the “play it safe” but still stylish spread collars to the batman and rarely worn band collars, we have a multitude of collar styles to choose from that will certainly suffice. One of the great things about our current options for collar styles is we offer single or double buttons with each and every collar. One feature you will see on our site is that when you’re designing your shirt and choosing your collar we allow you to view what the shirt collar will look like when it is buttoned or unbuttoned. This way you can have a clear idea of what it will look like if you’re thinking about trying a style you’ve never worn before.
That’s it this week, we hope you enjoyed this information on collar styles and were able to learn a bit.

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 – iTailor.com.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
This week, we address, by popular census of our World’s Leading Tailor Made Platform – The Top Ten Suit Patterns for men’s suits today. The result of this selection is gauged by top purchases made on www.itailor.com – The World’s Largest Online Tailor – an therefore an expert on Suits and other Custom-Made Products!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Let us break it down and shed some light on the top 5 timeless styles that you will never go wrong with.

The best part of this entire list is the fact you can design each of the below styles on our site. Shop and design from nearly 300 fabric options of men’s custom suits.
*If you have any of the below styles already, we suggest combining the styles. For example; you may have a navy suit but not a navy three piece suit, or you may have a plaid suit, but not a double breasted plaid suit. Let’s get started on iTailor’s list of men’s suits with timeless style.
5)Men’s Suits – Timeless Styles – The Two Button Charcoal Suit
Number five on our list of top 5 men’s suits with timeless style is The 2 Button Charcoal Suit. There are only so many places and events the men’s classic black suit is proper for. Adding this to your closet of men’s suits and style repertoire will allow you to mix this with a multitude custom dress shirts, ties, and more. This suit doesn’t really work best for any specific type but more so every man. We recommend wearing this with solid and patterned dress shirts, just be careful not to add patterned ties with patterned shirts.
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.
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.
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.
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. Whether you opt for Single Button, or Two Button, this suit simply can be worn to just about anything, anytime, for any reason, all year round. 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. You can also wear this suit jacket with your favorite denim. It works well for all types of men and is always going on sale.

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.
If you want to spend less of your hard earned money; look sharper than anyone in the office, at your friend’s wedding, church, or any event for that matter… Design your own suits step by step and have them custom cut/tailored for you… Have a company with nearly half a century of experience working for you, and have the opportunity to be dressed in fabrics no one in your city will have. You work hard, let your clothes work just as hard for you. Now you know the benefits: stretch your funds, and get the best fit, style, and fabric quality for the best price in the world.
If you’re looking for more information please let us know in the comments below what further insights could help you. For nearly 45 years we’ve been constructing men’s custom suits, aka made to measure, bespoke, and tailor made suits. In that time we have seen trends come and go, but the one thing that remains the same is our love for what we do and who we do it for. It is said one cannot attain success in anything one is not passionate about; our passion is our customer. After all, without you we have nothing to customize. It starts and ends with you.

Custom dress shirt were considered to be for the privileged, and well-off individuals. They added a dapper touch of style to the elite on Wall Street, certain celebrities, and others who were able to afford such a luxury. To us whether you fit into those categories or not shouldn’t dictate what clothing you have the ability to purchase and wear, and that’s precisely where iTailor comes in.
We have been creating men’s tailored goods since 1971, since that time many changes have taken place in our industry. Our goal however, has not. Our entire purpose is to provide the highest quality tailor-made clothing, with limitless options, at the most economical prices. That being said, we would like to cover what we feel we’ve seen to be the 5 main advantages of wearing our custom dress shirts.
5 ADVANTAGES OF WEARING CUSTOM DRESS SHIRTS
We highlight this because it is usually a large part in the buying cycle of anything these days. Throw the old thought that custom wear is only for the well-off out the door because our world renowned men’s custom dress shirts range from $24.95 – $69.95. This comes with the choice of nearly 500 fabric choices, contrast fabrics for cuffs, collars and sleeves, monogramming, and many other unprecedented design features. That’s a price you can hardly find for ready to wear/off the rack shirts that won’t fit you half as well, let alone match our quality craftsmanship.
We are the epitome of Made-To-Measure and pride ourselves on our tailoring heritage to offer custom-made choices and fitting – i.e. garments specifically tailored only for you. This arguably could be listed first but either way you look at it, fit is basically the reason anyone looks into custom clothing. If you’ve never gone this route before don’t worry we have step by step instructional videos not only on our site, but also on our YouTube channel on how to measure yourself at home. We also have options for choosing standardized sizing like small, medium, large, etc. for those who really only want to custom “design” their custom dress shirts.
At iTailor design-ability is key. Our focus has always been to give you the most design options possible when creating your custom dress shirts. It is impossible to mention them all, as the design combinations are limitless. You can choose from nearly 500 fabrics, 13 different collar styles (spread, cutaway, button-down,etc.), you can change your sleeve fabrics, buttons, button thread color, pockets, the details on your back and much more. Our design options are countless and when you couple this with the fit, price, and quality we offer, our shirts are truly second to none.
For many men, Custom Dress Shirts are all about style. From the customization that is available in our 3D PRO designer it’s actually quite difficult to argue that point. From multiple collar choices to shirt bottoms, cuffs, fabrics, threads, etc. we know many are building a complete work of art. Perhaps you noticed a specific pattern at Nordstrom’s or Macy’s that was three times the price, not custom fitted and off the rack. We ask the question why pay three times the price for a lack in fit, when you can design the style of the shirt exactly as you desire, have it custom tailored to your bodies specific measurements, and spend less? When it all boils down, what does custom clothing give you? It gives you a look that is like no other. Stand-alone unique style that was custom designed by you and custom fitted for you. If you want a better idea of what iTailor custom dress shirts look like in real life do yourself a favor and take a 5 minute look here.

Spring Fashion may be daunting for many, as we shed from the Winter bulk to a more Vivant Spring/Summer Collection. Where does one begin? What style is right for the season? Or better yet, what colors should you be wearing? These are some of the many questions you may have asked yourself. However, fret not, spring is simple at iTailor.com.
Spring brings style! It is a season highly anticipated in the fashion world. It allows the overcoat to stay in the closet, and let’s everyone add some color back into their wardrobe, or should we say “custom wardrobe”.
So “where does one begin”? Whilst we offer fabrics that are ideal for year-round wear, we highly recommend our linen fabrics and pastel shades such as pink, white, lavender to welcome the warmer climate.
Brighter & Lighter Colors
Ditch the depressed winter looks and add in some brilliant colors like pink(many different shades), light blue or even purple. Spring is about more vibrant colors (think about your surroundings.. the green grass, the colorful flowers, and the bright blue skies above) Our custom shirts are made from 100% premium cotton that stands the test of time, so don’t worry about them fading out before next spring. On a side-note, most spring colors are perfect for summertime as well so.. 9 times out 10 if you style yourself right for spring you’ve got summer style nearly finished.
Fit Is Key
You made your new year’s resolution months ago, you lost the weight and you’re looking great! Now it’s time to show everyone what your discipline bought you. Men’s Custom Shirts are what started iTailor, and from a global perspective our quality is second to none. Not to mention our price too. Now, how you wear it and when you wear it is totally up to you. Whether you like to roll your sleeves or maybe you like a relaxed collar, your call. If you’re the type to tuck-in or leave out don’t worry. Remember, our men’s dress shirts are custom fitted and tailor made shirts. The tuck factor, well you’re the king of it now and your fit will have everyone turning your way.
Fabrics & Patterns
Break out the gingham check, plaid, and linen. Show a bit of classic taste but with a little modern style. If you’re not a fan of plaid and gingham you can still pull off timeless looks with stripes and solids, and for the very bold gents out there floral print options can work very well too. Pair these shirts with some iTailor Chino’s and you’re on your way to spring style royalty.

However, for those who this is new for, we plan to inform you in detail what the iTailor Collection is, it’s main purpose, and how it can help you.
Benefits Of The iTailor Collection
First off how many times a week would you say you’re on your mobile device or smartphone and you find yourself browsing an online store? Let’s go a step further, how about an online store where you’re looking at clothes? And let’s go one final step, looking at custom clothing — ok, ok I know this is a niche market, I digress 🙂 I am simply trying to draw attention to the fact that we as a society are even shopping for clothes through our phones and mobile devices today. Now you might be asking yourself what does this have to do with designing custom dress shirts and suits, etc. I am glad you asked, we know how much you love our 3D designers, the limitless design options regardless what product you’re purchasing, but we also know how the majority of you still take to your desktops or laptops to finalize the order since it’s a bigger screen and helps you see what you’re designing better.

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).
