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!
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?

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.
