Why custom-made clothing vs. buying off the rack?
Rack suits are sold exclusively by the chest measurement. For example, size 38, 40, 42, etc. They come in small, regular, and long. So even if two people have a weight difference of 30-40 lbs, they have to wear the same suit size based on their chest measurement! How can that be possible?
Custom made suits are made to fit YOU. Did you know that your posture plays an important role in the way your suits lays and hangs on you? By measuring every part of your body, and following your posture, we ensure a perfect fit.
How long does it take to get the clothing?
From the time you see us, are measured, have chosen your fabric and style, it takes 6 to 8 weeks to receive the garments. In certain cases, we will be able to rush an order out in 3 to 4 weeks.
