Customize Your Made to Measure Suits Online in Toronto

Posted by Spier & Mackay on January 25th, 2016

A made to measure suit is no longer an indulgence that only the wealthy can afford. Today, many professionals choose to have their suits custom made, giving them the fit that off-the-rack simply cannot offer. What used to be an expensive alternative to everyday suits is now a more affordable, if not cheaper closet staple, all thanks to retailers and tailors that sell their products online.

Custom suits are highly accessible nowadays. However, people still find the process quite intimidating. The key to finding a good deal on made to measure suits online understands exactly what you are paying for. This lessens the intimidation that most people feel when having custom suits made-to-measure. There are three main components to a made-to-measure piece, namely, a customized fit, the tailoring process, and the materials used. Another thing to remember when having made-to-measure suits tailored is that they are not necessarily bespoke, which is why they are a lot less expensive than completely custom-designed and tailored pieces.

The costliest suits are often those that are designed from scratch. The terms bespoke, custom, and made-to-measure can be confusing, especially to first-time buyers who don't exactly know the difference between each. The confusion is also largely due to the fact that many vendors and tailors use the terms interchangeably (wrongly). This is why knowing the details of the service you are getting is critical if you want to get the real value of your money.

'Bespoke' essentially means that new patterns for the suit are created for each customer. Made-to-measure, on the other hand, means that existing patterns are altered with your measurements. In any case, both offer a better fit than their off-the-rack counterparts. Bespoke tailoring often requires multiple fittings, which help ensure that measurements are precise. Depending on the selling or tailoring store's process, made-to-measure suits will also require multiple fittings, although online companies nowadays make the process a lot easier and less tedious. For the most part, they will ask you to get measured by a professional or at a local tailor so you can pass on the right numbers, or provide you some guidelines on how to measure yourself correctly. Many have instructional videos to help consumers take their measurements properly.

Toronto has some excellent bespoke and made-to-measure tailors that offer their services online, including trusted names that have been in the business for quite a long time. Choosing your tailor is a matter of knowing their experience in providing the service that you need.
