Today’s modern man is both rugged and refined. He is strong on the playing field, he is smart in the boardroom, and he is sophisticated in a suit and tie. But not just any suit. One of the rising trends in men’s fashion is bespoke—or tailored—suit. Any man can stumble into his local department store and pull a suit off the rack, but to truly “pull off” the suited look a real man will go to a tailor. Here is where to tailor clothes in Singapore.
Anyone who wears suits regularly, whether for the office or for nights out on the town, knows how quickly a low-quality suit can start to age. Worn-out knees and elbows, frayed stitching, or faded colours simply cheapen a man’s appearance—and his esteem. Truth is, cheap is expensive. We will be able to choose from a wide variety of quality fabrics that do not wear out, drape impeccably on the body, and emit a “lustre” or “screen”. Add a skilled tailor who understands our uniqueness—opposed to machines on an assembly line—we will get much higher attention to detail.
While there are many convinced an off-the-rack suit fits you fine, there is no substitute for a tailor’s exact measurement of our body. We deserve a suit that fits us like a glove, and the only way to get the perfect fit is a custom tailored suit. A tailored suit coat is cut exactly to our measurements and reinforced with an interior of the canvas, which means that it would not hang baggily from our shoulders, but will instead accentuate our best features and mask the ones we would prefer not to highlight. And the pants will be hemmed to hit our shoe at just the right length, making for a powerful and confident stride. Our appearance will be streamlined and sleek, like a fine automobile.
Department stores tend to carry a lot of suits that look the same. They might reflect popular trends but in the most cookie-cutter way. If we truly want to be on the cutting edge of men’s fashion, a tailored suit is the only way to go. Not only will the fabric and fit be of the highest standard, but the look will be as on-trend as we want it to be. We will have the ability to customize the width of the lapel, the number of buttons, the vents, the cuffs, everything. A custom-made suit can be as couture and fashion-forward as we want it to be, and it can also display our personality.
Better time spent
The modern man has a lot on his plate. We know that. But what we might not know is meeting with a tailor is not nearly as time-consuming as we think. In just an hour, we will have all the measurements we need to hand-craft a year’s worth of clothing. Compare that to the time we will waste trying on ill-fitting suits at various retail stores.
Better money spent
True, an off-the-rack suit can often be found at a bargain-basement price, but we get what we pay for. And more often than not, cheaply is expensive. With constant trips to the dry cleaners, the repair of rips and tears, and the eventual need to replace it, our bargain-basement suit ends up costing us far more than it is worth. But when we look at the quality, detail, and superiority of a custom suit, it really is a smart investment. A quality wool suit would not wear down or get that shine from worn-out fabrics. A custom suit will be a true workhorse: strong, virtually wrinkle-free, and will never require dry-cleaning, as true Merino wool repels odours and oils.
