Bespoke tailoring creates a personal finish that conforms properly to a man’s body. This is the deciding factor we’re led to believe is the only reason why men should consider having a bespoke tailor. While many rightfully choose to go this route based on this fact, it’s not the only consideration men should make when choosing a bespoke tailor. Let’s take a look at why.
Customers will know they’re getting the bespoke touch simply when they ask for it. Why is this important? The relationship between a tailor and his client is a lifelong commitment. Individual patterns will be cut, adjustments can be made on the fly, and information related to body shapes and compositions can be retained permanently. This is something that constantly changes in the regular fashion market, where “regular cuts” can change according to current trends and suddenly become unwearable for certain body shapes. This won’t happen with a bespoke tailor.
Bespoke Tailoring Fits Better
The cutter himself is only a part of the bigger picture. Certain tailors will opt for certain cutting techniques, which can result in a slightly firmer jacket made of more stitches per inch. Others may opt for something a little easier that adds more fullness and a more relaxed cut. The end result will create something that uniquely fits the wearer based on the patterns developed during the initial consultation stages. Off the rack clothing and bigger tailoring houses have garments sewn by several different tailors and the difference is very noticeable in the end.
Custom Clothing is Unique
As consumers we’re often led astray by the intoxicating effects of clothing labels. In reality, they don’t mean a whole lot. Those who chase the latest and greatest trends often end up with wardrobes stuffed full of clothes that just don’t fit right, but are worn because they’re coming from a certain fashion label. We shouldn’t let ourselves be conned by the world of advertising and marketing – their world lies in writing rather than stitching.
The bespoke tailor will create a truly one of a kind item that actually fits the wearer properly. The same can’t be said for any label. Yes, we might be able to find certain labels with patterns that closely resemble our bodies, but unless that pattern stays true throughout their existence (extremely rare), then we’re eventually going to outgrow certain labels and have to find another one. A tailor eliminates this need altogether.
