Steps You Need To Take Before Coming in for a Custom Suit
When pursuing a new suit, you want to make sure it’s done right. At Michael’s Custom Clothes, our experienced tailors will meet your exact specifications, using the right material to suit your style; a suit that emits confidence. Here are some tips on tailoring a custom suit to meet your exact specifications, and give you that much-needed edge.

How do I go about getting a custom suit made?

You have a suit in mind right now— a dream suit, you might say. However, you can’t find the exact thing at the mall or anywhere online, so now you are looking now to get a custom one made. Why is that? Is the material hard to find? Are your measurements too unique for a generic shop? Take this all into account while pursuing a custom-made suit. 

Take your time through the selection process

You don’t want to rush your custom suit process. Finding the right material, comfortable measurements, complementary accessories, and—of course— an experienced tailor (us!) will give you the edge in making a quality suit an exceptional one.

In other words, you want to be prepared so you can get the suit right the first time. Otherwise, you’ll have to make adjustments later. These adjustments can be time-consuming and pricey over time, so it’s best to get it all right beforehand (and avoid headaches later on).

As far as accessories go, it’s important that your color scheme fits the overall ensemble. Are you pairing a simple grey with a white or black look, or are you going for a more unique navy and dark brown look? This goes for your belt, shoes, cuffs, tie, etc. With each of these items colored and fitted properly, you’ll see the aesthetic value skyrocket for your suit as a whole. However, you do want to avoid having too much of any color. We’ll help you consider the whole outfit into account when choosing colors. Too much of a type of color or one shade can overwhelm what the rest of the suit has going for it.

How does a custom suit change the game for me?

The perfect fit – This is the change that makes custom suits worth it. Every detail in how you want your suit to be worn is taken into account. The length of your pants, how the sleeves fit, and even just the position of where your tie rests. It all matters. When you get that perfect fit, you’ll never again settle for less.

The style matches your own – Luckily you can fit a custom suit in with virtually any style choice, which is perfect for those who want a cohesive aesthetic image to present to others. With your unique style reflected in your suit, you’ll be exuding confidence the entire time you’re wearing it.
