The popularity of tailored men's suits is to some extent on the wane. There are several reasons for this, but the fact that many men no longer own a tailored suit is a great shame.
A tailored suit has several advantages over an off the peg suit. They look far better, and last far longer. Someone in a tailored suit will usually make a far better impression than someone in an off the peg suit. Wearing a bespoke suit can often give you the edge when it comes to business. You are telling potential clients or employers, on a subconscious level, that you are someone who goes the extra mile, takes care of things, is professional and can be relied upon.
However, a bespoke suit is still an expensive item. Luckily, there is a way to get that tailored look without having to pay so much for it.
Modern Suits That Fit
Some of the best modern men's clothing retailers have their roots in tailoring. They started out as tailors who owned a single tailors shop on a High Street. However, they saw the benefits of scaling up their operation and carrying out certain tasks, such as cutting, en masse. As a result, they opened up tailors shops in multiple locations to draw in customers, carry out the initial measurements and the necessary fitting sessions. However, much of the cutting and actual basic sewing was done in a single location, by a team that had the expertise to do it all quickly, but do it well. Over time, these firms gained an understanding of the average size of men and began to produce and sell readymade suits as well. The modern suit industry was born.
Today, these same companies are making mainly readymade suits. However, they are being a bit more cleaver about it. They know that most men really want a tailored suit, but cannot always afford the time and money to buy one. As a result, they offer their suits in several different cuts. This allows their clients to mix and match to get a suit that fits them like a glove. It gives their customers the chance to get that tailored look without having to pay a lot to do so.
