Made To Measure Offers An Affordable Bespoke Alternative
If you’re tired of off-the-rack clothing, but don’t feel you’re able to afford a truly bespoke option, made to measure may be what you’re looking for. You’ll still have many of the benefits of a truly bespoke option, like picking your fabrics and having a garment that fits incredibly well, but it won’t be quite to the standards of bespoke connoisseurs.
How Does Made to Measure Differ From Bespoke?
With a bespoke option, everything is completely customized. This includes that pattern from which your suit is tailored. It’s time consuming and expensive for the tailor to create a completely custom pattern, and it’s one of the biggest contributors to the cost of bespoke options.
What Does It Cost?
The cost of your made to measure garments will depend on a number of factors. These include the standard rates your chosen tailor charges, the fabrics used, and the style of your suit. In most cases you can have a made to measure suit tailored for anywhere between $800 and $1500. It’s rare to find a made to measure suit that costs much more than this, though. At higher price points people tend to prefer truly bespoke solutions.
Finding a Made to Measure Tailor
Like all things, trial and error seems to be the best way to find the perfect tailor. But, you can reduce the amount of error you’ll go through by asking your friends, family, and coworkers who they prefer. Then, use the internet to check on that tailor’s reputation.
