The success of a bespoke suit depends on the tailor. You need to find someone who is experienced in doing this job and has what it takes to get the actual design that you have in mind. Therefore, it helps a lot if you try these tips on how to deal with your bespoke tailor.
Find someone who really works with bespoke suits
The idea of bespoke suits is that the suit is original and unique. It is created to perfectly match the specifications of the body of the person wearing it. The fabrics used are of great quality. Not all tailors specialise in bespoke. It is a tedious job that requires patience. You can’t just randomly ask a tailor to do a bespoke suit for you as it might not end up the way you wanted.
Get inspiration from others
You can’t just magically come up with a suit design unless of course you are really passionate about suits and there is an exact idea you can think of right away. The key is to be inspired by other creations. Take a look at some of the top designs and see if their designs perfectly reflect your style. Proportion, pattern and colour are the most important aspects for you to consider. Don’t just let your tailor design for you or else you won’t be happy with the final results.
Study the fabrics
Not all fabrics are created the same. Some are thicker while others are softer and thinner. Choose one depending on what you are more comfortable with. Not all fabrics are available in a specific colour that you want. Therefore, you have to carefully study the fabric to see if it has the exact colour that you want for a suit. Speaking of colours, find one that matches the colour of your skin so the suit pops. Worsted wool and flannel are always the safest choices.
Ask your tailor if the specific fabric you have in mind is available. If you insist on the said fabric and the tailor can’t provide it, you can jump to other choices.
Be honest about what you want
Establishing a good relationship with your tailor is not easy especially if you have not sought this type of service in the past. The key is to start building a positive relationship right from the start so you can make personal requests any time you want. You are also able to tell what you have in mind without fearing that the tailor gets offended.
Just wait for some time before the suit is done as it is really time-consuming. Nevertheless, the final output is something you will love wearing at all times.
