A Tailored Suit Garment Fit Details
Our regular fit is where we like to start with all new customers. But don’t let that name fool you; it’s anything but regular. Every part of the garment we build is contoured to your body’s measurements. Generally speaking, we give you approximately 3-4 inches of room in the chest and stomach on suits and 4-5 inches of play on shirts. Compare that with the 5-7 inches commonly found in off-the-rack suits and up to 10 inches of room in off-the-rack shirts.
Our loose fit isn’t really that loose, so don’t expect your clothing to be baggy (this is custom clothing we are talking about!). This is simply a roomier cut that gives the wearer a little extra fabric in key areas such as the shoulders, chest, stomach, and hips. This fit is also designed to help men minimizing certain body parts that will appear disproportional in off-the-rack clothing.
Not recommended for first time customer, this is for the man who likes his clothing to fit close to the body and is only recommended for men whose shoulders are wider than their stomachs. It is a fit that highlights the strength of the male chest and complements an athletic figure. Typically you see a slightly shorter jacket, a chest and stomach with only a couple of inches of room, and close fitting shoulders that display a small bump where the biceps curve out.
A Good Fit
There are three parts to a good fit.
1) We need accurate measurement to work with. Following our simple measurement guide, this is easy for anyone to do.
2) We need to accurately build your garment. Since we use a team of master tailors and have strict quality controls, this is covered.
3) We need to understand how you like your clothing to fit- specifically, how much play in key areas do you like to have.
This last point is where we need to learn from each other; most men are used to off the rack clothing and the “loose” feeling that comes with compromising on fit in one area to achieve an acceptable fit in another. If you are a first time or repeat client, we want you to know you can ask for anything to be slightly altered on future orders. Want an inch less room in the chest – no problem. Need your right sleeve cuff slightly larger to accommodate your oversized watch – done. The longer you stay with us, the more in tune we become to your idea of the perfect fit. If only all relationships could be that great!
