So Do I Really Need A Custom Tailored Suit?

“Suits are full of joy. They're the sartorial equivalent of a baby's smile.” – Barney Stinson, from How I Met Your Mother

It seems like everyone is buying a custom-made suit these days. Popularized by shows like How I Met Your Mother, and, well, Suits, custom-made suits no longer belong to the exclusive realm of the social elite. But what really makes a custom-made suit better than an off-the-rack suit? Does it make that much of a difference? Quite frankly, yes.

Whether you’re interviewing for a job, working as a seasoned professional, or simply looking to update your wardrobe, a custom-made suit always distinguishes you from the crowd.

A tailored suit gives a crisp, finished appearance, but has a relaxed fit that introduces both confidence and comfort to your look. It makes you look taller, leaner, and fitter, and shows attention to both detail and style. Your custom suit unarguably tells the world that you are a force to be reckoned with. It says that when you approach a task, you know exactly which little details to combine to create an impressive finish.

Obviously, the range of fabrics, colors, and styles you can choose from with a tailored suit is unbeatable. But another important factor to consider is the longevity of the suit, which is determined by its canvas.
