When thinking about the advantages of having a suit tailored over buying one off the rack, it’s easy to focus on the more refined benefits: the superior fit and the better design. However, one should never forget the simplest and most joyous advantage of having a suit tailor-made: the creative element. Tailoring empowers you to specify the colour, pattern and material of your suit, as well as subtler requirements; everything from the number and type of buttons to the style of the lapels. How much detail you go into is up to you, but whatever your tastes you can have something truly unique made up with bespoke tailoring.
There’s a simple pleasure to be gained from, for example, having a bold suit made up while the fashion is for subtly serious grey and charcoal. That is the joy of bespoke tailoring: it caters to all tastes and all requirements. Whether you simply want a specific fit and a few adjustments to a standard style, or you’re hoping to create something that makes you truly stand out wherever you go, bespoke tailoring can provide you with precisely what you need.
Nonetheless, this celebration of tailoring comes with a word of warning: trust your tailor. The tailors here at Mullen & Mullen are experts at turning customers’ requests into stylish, sumptuously fashionable suits. If your tailor has some advice about how to get the most out of your specifications or an adjustment they’d like to make to improve the overall design, it’s worth listening to them. Regardless of your tastes, the last thing you want to do is commit a complete fashion faux-pass because you didn’t listen to advice from the experts.
Bespoke tailoring isn’t merely a chance to acquire a flashier suit; it’s an opportunity to create a unique fashion statement that truly reflects your personality. By cooperating with a talented tailor, you can conjure a suit guaranteed to draw the eye and awe any who see you in it.
