Get the Look of the Runway With a Bespoke Suit

You flip through the pages of a men’s fashion magazine and you wish you could get the same look for yourself. The problem is, unless you’re looking at an ad, those aren’t clothes you can actually buy. Those clothes you see on runways are haute couture, which means that they are one-of-a-kind garments that will not be made again. Most runway collections are meant to give a sense of a designer’s style, not to preview a line that will be available in stores. The ready-to-wear collection – the items that you can actually buy off the rack in a store – will look much different from what you see on the runway.

Fortunately, you don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on fashion to look stylish and sophisticated. You can invest in a bespoke suit and look as good as any celebrity on the cover of a magazine. Here’s what you need to know about bespoke suits and their benefits:

Perfect Fit

The main problem with ready-to-wear suits is that they are produced for a mass audience. The patterns are based on a few basic shapes and sizes. But not all men can fit into a few categories. Everyone is different, and their bodies are shaped differently. The curve of your back isn’t going to be the same as the curve of another man’s back, even if he is the same general size as you. You may have a shoulder that droops a bit more than the other. You may have a habit of stooping when you walk.

All these factors and more will be taken into consideration when a tailor makes your bespoke suit. The tailor will make dozens of measurements and take detailed notes about your body, your posture, your gait, and more. You will go through several fittings to see where adjustments need to be made. When all is done, you will have a suit that fits your body perfectly for the exact look you want. Custom mens’s suits – whether they come from Salt Lake City or New York City – are the highest-quality garments and will make you look like you stepped off a runway in Milan.

Custom Styling

A bespoke suit is made just for you. That means that you have total control over how it is made. You can choose the type of fabric and the color. You decide on what style it has, such as whether it is slim fit, has a high lapel, and how many buttons it has. You decide the type and color of the accessories, such as the buttons and the pocket square.

When all is said and done, you will have a suit that looks exactly the way you want it to. Every detail of that suit can reflect your personality or your unique sense of style. But if you aren’t confident in your style choices and aren’t sure what you want the suit to look like, your tailor will expertly guide you through the process to help you create a suit that you will love.

Cost Savings

You won’t get a bespoke suit for the same price as a ready-to-wear garment. Nor will you find discounts or specials on custom-made suits. But you will spend a lot less money for a bespoke suit than you would for a haute couture garment created by a big-name designer – even though the custom suit can have the same level of quality and beautiful styling. If you want to look like a celebrity or a millionaire, buying a bespoke suit will give you the bonafides without actually having to dip into a trust fund to make it possible. You’ll have the look for a lot less.

Stop looking at men’s magazines and wishing you could look as cool as Taio Cruz or Chris Hemsworth. You can look that great with the right styling. Since you likely wear a suit to work or at least on special occasions when you want to look your best, a bespoke suit is an excellent investment that would make you feel like a million bucks – and look like it, too. Once you put on your own custom suit, you’ll never want to buy one off the rack again.
