Getting a unique bespoke suit can be exciting. This is true if it is your first time to do so. A perfectly tailored suit that you can’t find elsewhere is a great choice. If you are planning to splurge as a gift to yourself, this is a perfect idea. Here are some tips to come up with an amazing suit in the end.
Identify where the suit will be worn
You need to know first where the suit will be worn. Is it for a funeral, wedding, court appearance or job interview? You can change the design, or the material used, depending on where you intend to wear it. You have to choose one based on its appropriateness.
Find the right fabric
You can choose from a wide variety of fabrics. There are over 10 choices when it comes to bespoke suits. Find one that is not too heavy for you but is also appropriate for the kind of weather in your area. Worsted wool is a great choice as it can easily adapt to the changes in temperature. It also has a slight shine if you want something that looks stunning but not too overwhelming. The 120 is an ideal fabric if you wish something that looks really luxurious but totally lightweight. Mohair is a fabric that is silky and textured. You can also go for flannel if you wish to be comfortable during the spring and autumn seasons.
2-piece vs. 3-piece garments
Choose the number of pieces. Do you want a waistcoat that goes with the jacket and trousers? Would you look it better as just a 2-piece? The 2-piece option is obviously cheaper. It is perfect if you live in a sunny area and formality is not observed. However, for more formal gatherings, a 3-piece garment would be better.
If it is your first time and there is a specific design that you really want to achieve, bring a photo. Visuals will always help you. It is better than just explaining the suit and ending up with miscommunication. There is nothing wrong with a photo that resembles what you want to have exactly. This will also help the sales person sell you the perfect suit.
Be true to yourself
In the end, if you are planning to spend a lot of money for a quality bespoke suit, make sure that you will be happy wearing it. Don’t settle for anything less. If you want a particular design or you think you would look amazing with additional styling, then use them. Your tailor won’t judge you. The goal is for you to feel successful, confident and comfortable with what you are wearing. You should also consider it as a long-term investment in your wardrobe.
