Suit Yourself

by | Jul 22, 2011 | Style & Grooming

1. What do you do for a living and in your spare time?
Your tailor should be taking into consideration how much wear the suit will get to better advise you on fabric selection and appropriate material.

2.How often are you going to be wearing the suit?
Again, it’s important to ascertain what fabric would be appropriate and to give you an idea of how long the suit will work for you.

3. Are you hard-wearing on your clothes?
We have individual patterns of moving and this effects our clothing. For example, if a guy prefers fitted trousers, yet he rubs holes in his pants from chafing between his legs, then a tailor like Frank Bespoke would fit a gusset (a protective piece of cloth around the crotch area) to give your suits longevity.

4. What kind of fit are you looking for?
Any decent tailor knows what will and won’t suit you. If a big guy wants to fit into skinny pants he should be advised not to. Certain body types just don’t work with certain styles.

5. What are your dry-cleaning habits?
Depending on the fabric and how often you wear a suit, it requires different frequencies of dry-cleaning. If you wear a suit twice a week, then you need to dry-clean your suit once every three to four months and so on.
