2 Tips for the Successful Purchase of Custom-Made Suits Online

Posted on

Purchasing custom made suits online can make any man or woman look and feel good, as you know that suit will fit you perfectly and will be very flattering to you. Custom-made suits can also be made with specific materials, so if you prefer something very lightweight or have skin sensitivities to certain fabrics, you can choose exactly what you need when you shop online. This can also allow someone to have the same suit made in various fabrics and colors; if that blue suit fits you perfectly and is a material that you love, you can then have it made in a brown, black, or any other color, so you then have a closet full of suits you love.

Before you buy a custom-made suit online, you want to ensure you take the steps needed for a perfect fit and a perfect suit. Note a few simple tips on how to do this.

1. Test out materials beforehand

Never let price alone be the determining factor when it comes to choosing the material for a suit, and never assume that a blend of fabrics will be the same as a genuine fabric. As an example of what this means, a material may be a blend of polyester and cotton; the polyester may give it extra strength but it can also be uncomfortable for some people, and may retain body heat. A higher concentration of wool in a particular blend of fabrics can mean a thicker suit that is only best for the coldest of winter days.

If possible, visit a fabric store and find the fabrics you find advertised online, or order a swatch before ordering your suit. You want to actually feel the fabrics before you buy so you know that the suit will feel comfortable against your skin, and so you know how thick or thin it is for maximum comfort year-round.

2. Understand the styles and technical terms

Custom details and styles are one reason to choose custom suits online, but you need to understand the different styles and technical terms. For example, do you want a peak or notch lapel? Should they be skinny, moderate, or wide? If you're not sure of what these terms mean, be sure you see comparison photos before ordering. Terms like ticket pocket, waistcoat, and reverse pleats are all often used online, and they will all affect the overall look and feel of your suit. Be sure you understand them so you can choose a cut and style that will turn out exactly as expected.
