ZZ Top was right, and it’s as true today as it was in the 80s. So let’s channel our inner James Bond and explore the world of custom-tailored clothing.
The main reason to choose a custom-tailored suit is the fit. Nothing makes us feel better than a suit that hits us in all the right spots. It accentuates our strong points, helps to flatter our not-so-strong points and ensures we always look our best.
Then there’s the customization. The ability to choose our own fabrics, color, pattern or detailing lets us get creative and express our own personal style. We can be as flashy or conservative as we want. We can also design it with our favorite collar style and lapel width, and even finish it off by personalizing it with a signature monogram.
It can be hard for bigger guys like us to find clothing that fits well and looks great. Stores that offer custom-tailored clothing programs, such as Rochester Clothing and Destination XL, make it easier to ensure a perfect fit, while showing off our own unique style. And custom-tailored programs aren’t limited just to suits—you can do the same with individual sport coats, trousers, and shirts. But the best part? It’s affordable!
I’ve found having a suit custom-made can be really expensive, and buying a suit off the rack in a department store and having it tailored to fit can be almost as pricey. With stores that offer custom-tailored clothing, every guy can get the best fit at the best price. As for comparisons to James Bond, well, that’s just something we’ll have to get used to.
