A bespoke suit is synonymous with luxury. A suit bought off the rack might be formal, but a tailor-made suit goes a little further than that. It is made to impress. Can you justify buying one?Buying a ready-made suit seems an odd thing to do, the more you think about it. You’re buying an outfit for special occasions that you’ll probably keep for many years and which is supposed to present you at your very best and you’re deliberately taking the decision to purchase an inferior version. Why would you do this? It’s a false economy.
The great advantage of suits is that you can invest in them secure in the knowledge that they aren’t going to go out of style. Think of it that way – as an investment. You are investing in looking your best when it really matters for many years to come.An off the rack suit is smart, but it is compromised. Everybody’s body shape is different. What are the chances of your finding a suit that precisely fits your proportions? It is extremely unlikely, if not impossible. The only way of ensuring a decent cut is to be measured by professionals and have a suit custom made.
Being fitted for a suit is actually a very enjoyable experience as well. You get to choose the exact fabric you want, how many pockets you would like, which style of jacket and what shape of trousers. You can specify every detail and have something made to your exact taste. But not only that, you also get a garment which will be infinitely more flattering than anything you might buy ready-made. Are you in perfect physical condition? Honestly? Is there not one aspect of your physique that might need toning down a little or exaggerating just a touch? A well-made suit can achieve this.
Go and try on the suit you’ve got and appraise how you look. If there’s room for improvement, it’s time to invest. It doesn’t matter whether you bought a cheap suit simply because you needed one or whether you had one tailor-made which no longer fits – if it isn’t doing the job for which it was intended, you need to address the situation.Women will typically buy a new dress for every wedding they attend. As a man, you are buying a suit for multiple weddings and many more special occasions on top of that. Make it count.
