Bespoke Suits That Speak Directly To The Men That Wear Them
Time creates new standards that we are tempted to aspire towards and why not!
Not too long ago, you and I had two choices about where our suits came from – One was of-the-shelf and the other was made according to your (hopefully!) measurements and felt like the most ultimate offering.
Even today, it may seem that these are the only two options in suits. However, that is not so.
The idea of a bespoke suit originates from the tailored, though the made-to-order variety and takes it to the next level in comfort, style, and intimacy. A kind of intimacy that a man only shares with his bespoke suits, while feeling great and looking all dapper.
To understand what we mean by a next-level experience, it’s helpful to know exactly what goes into creating it.
Differences in Tailored Suits and Bespoke Suits
We prefer not to refer to made-to-measure suits as being completely customised. True originality and personalisation are the actual tenets of Sydney’s bespoke suits.
Measurement and Selection
The process of taking measurements is similar to made-to-measure suits and bespoke suits. The bespoke suit tailor, however, may tend to take a few more specific measurements to get the fit just right.
The fabric and pattern processes will amaze those not familiar with the reality in which bespoke suits exist. Most made-to-measure suits are created from pattern templates or design books. You may choose the kind of fabric you like and narrow down on a pattern from a pre-existing catalogue.
The bespoke tailor, on the other hand, has no limitations in fabric and does not try to fit you into an existing template. Most bespoke tailors have access to the finest fabrics – pure wool, high-quality linen, scintillating silks… the choice is yours!
Plus, the pattern of a bespoke suit is crafted especially for you. One that works well with your body and guarantees ultimate comfort. If done right, no one else will be able to fit into your swank bespoke suit! Somewhat like Cinderella’s forgotten shoe but way more comfortable…
Stitching and Style
All bespoke suits are hand-stitched according to your very specific measurements and unique style. It is a laboured task that takes some time, focus, and uncompromising dedication.
Made-to-measure suits can be mass-produced, a little like off-the-shelf. This is especially true of showrooms or retail outlets that are popular and possess a bulky client list. The holiday season, prom time, or during large scale weddings, are those occasions on which made-to-measure suits are created in a hurry and in large quantities.
They may be nice suits but they won’t be unique or customised. This is applicable to any made-to-measure suit.
Another advantage of getting yourself a bespoke tailor is the freedom he/she has to get into intricate styling details. Those extra nuances that make the suit completely yours.
Naturally, the bespoke suit is a more expensive option over both off the shelf and made to measure. But due to the high quality and gorgeous workmanship, a bespoke suit feels like a well-deserved luxury that you may enjoy and savour for many years.
There is also this factor – the price of your bespoke suit depends largely on the fabric, style, and tailoring.
So the cost of your bespoke suit may be high and can vary. But you will be guaranteed an exquisite product that whispers sweet ‘everything’ to you, each time you see it.
