Five reasons why it is better to buy a bespoke suit than off the rack

Nothing says class like a perfectly tailored bespoke suit.

The days of the ill-fitting off-the-rack suit are over. To stand in today’s world – whether it’s for work, socializing or dating – to be truly successful you need to embrace the trend towards bespoke suits. Modern male fashion demands no less.

Everything about a made-to-measure suit is tailored to your body shape and your preferences – from the fabric to the cut and the lapels and the buttons.

Thanks to the trend back towards tailored suits, more and more of the best tailors are offering a bespoke suit service to their clients.

And thanks to competition in the market and a higher volume of orders the price of bespoke suits is coming down every day.

Who knows? You might end up buying a suit for every occasion – weddings, funerals, socializing and for your work.


Here we go with our five reasons!

Reason One: Fit.
Everybody’s body shape is different and the reality is in the modern age one size fits all no longer cuts it. Modern styling demands a bespoke suit.

Reason two: Choice
Ever been shopping for a suit and each one you try there’s just something not quite right? Maybe they only have double breasted in your size or the arms are too short? Or the trousers? Well, thanks to the rise in bespoke tailoring, there are any number of tailoring companies that can make exactly what you need to your own demanding specifications

Reason three: Affordability
Thanks to the big increase in the number of tailors and clothing shops and online stores offering bespoke suits and tailored clothing, there is a whole range of pricing with bespoke suits available for as little as $400 or ranging right up to $4000 plus depending on the quality of the fabric, the amount of work required and the location of those doing the work. The bottom line is there is a price to suit anyone in the market for a tailored suit and at the bottom end it is readily comparable to what you’ll pay for something off the rack

Reason four: Fabrics

Bespoke suits are usually made from the best woollen fabrics on the market. The off-the-shelf manufacturers of suits simply don’t get access to the best fabrics. These are held back for the more discerning tailored suit markets.

Reason five: because you deserve it

Life’s too short to wear an ill-fitting suit. Get a bespoke suit that fits you perfectly and watch your confidence soar as you grab that new jobs, pay rise or hot new date.
