Avoiding the Pitfalls of the Ill-Fitting Suit: The Importance of Bespoke Formal Wear

As a first-rate provider of custom made suits, The Tailored Man understands that “the clothes make the man.” While the adage has a timeless truth, we figured it needed some extrapolation — namely, when it comes to wearing a suit. Many individuals are familiar with this type of business as casual or formal wear, while others consider it to be uncharted territory — but fear not! We’re here to help cover the bases and find a suit that’s perfect for you, so you can hang the ill-fitting one back on the rack.

Recalibrating Comfortability

How many times have you heard men groan something along the lines of “I can’t wait to get out of this stuffy shirt and take this jacket off,” or “I want to change out of these trousers and just slip into a pair of sweatpants”? While you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t feel cozy in casual wear, there’s an old myth that suits and formalwear, in general, have to be uncomfortable or stiff-feeling to get the job done. This mentality usually stems from shirts, jackets, and trousers that aren’t appropriately tailored! 

Suffering for the sake of beauty will not do a man any good. For example, if a jacket is too long, the extra material will make you feel like you’re swimming in your own attire. If a dress shirt is too tight, it will be pulling and choking at every turn. With a well-fitted suit, these functional drawbacks won’t be an issue. We believe that a suit shouldn’t just make you feel good about yourself, and it shouldn’t wear you down physically, either. This leads us to our next point:

Boosting Your Self-Confidence

Here’s another saying we can get behind: “When you look better, you feel better.” Not only will a tailored suit free you up to feel comfortable at work and thoroughly enjoy yourself at a formal event without always fighting or readjusting your garments, but you’ll also exude a sense of pride and self-assurance when you know everything fits perfectly. 

A Selection Suited to You

You know that a well-fitted suit allows you to feel great inside and out, but there’s another benefit that fuses these positive feelings — selection! When you turn to The Tailored Man to invest in custom suits online, you won’t be limited by mass-produced choices that may come off as safe, inside-the-box, and dare we say “boring.” Because custom is about more than just how the fit treats you — it’s about personalization, too! From materials, colors, and patterns, you’ll be able to be as bold or tried-and-true as you’d like.

It has been estimated in various surveys that up to 50% of the wardrobe is never worn and along with this, another mind boggling percent of clothes are rarely used. Shocking, isn’t it? When faced with these statistics, one gets a major jolt. This information may even come as a serious eye opener to many.
