Everyone wants a wardrobe that fits like it was made especially for them.

Those options are just not available when you shop off the rack.

Never is that statement truer than when you are do not fall into a typical size category.

If you happen to fall into the big and tall category, those frustrations can mount at every turn.

If you are looking for a way to alleviate those frustrations, find a custom tailor that can help you determine the perfect fit and fabric combination to create the fashionable look of your dreams.

Selecting Big and Tall Blazers

Begin your custom suit selection process by focusing on choosing the perfect custom fit blazer.

Your custom blazer will be one of the first things that people notice about you therefore you should take pride in making the best fit selections for your frame.

Look for a blazer that will help minimize your frame with its design elements.

The color of your custom blazer will have a large impact on your appearance.

Darker colors like black and navy have an instant slimming quality.

After color choice, the next design element to consider is embellishments.

A two button blazer will minimize the appearance of your frame and when coordinated with a darker color conveys a powerful look.

Along with the number of buttons that you choose, consider the appearance of the buttons themselves.

If you are looking to minimize a frame, choose simpler design elements so that you do not draw unnecessary attention to your frame.

Selecting Big and Tall Trousers

When designing your custom suit, the next element to think about is the custom trouser.

Trousers are the natural counterpart to your custom blazer and must have an appropriate fit if you are going to achieve a fashionable look with your custom suit.

Decide on whether or not you want to design your custom trouser with or without a pleat.

Keep in mind that pleats can tend to add volume to your frame so if a slim fit is what you are interested in when designing your custom suit, avoid the pleat.

If you do choose to design your custom suit with a pleat be mindful of the position of the pleat during the design process.

The pleat of your custom trouser should fall straight down the center of your trouser, if the pleat pulls to one side or the other that is an indication that your trouser is too small.

When your body type does not fall into the average category that everyone else does, your style choices can be difficult.

If you build a great relationship with your custom tailor, then they will be able to assist you in overcoming some of those fashion challenges.

When you wear clothes that are tailor made for you, you will find that your confidence and comfort levels will increase dramatically.

Now, the only thing missing in the style equation is you and your input.

Once you provide that, your new style status will soon follow.
