One of the most important decisions that a person can make during the design process surrounds which fabric will be the best fabric choice for you and for the garment. Fabric choices help to determine your comfort level and your overall style persona. There are several things to consider when it comes to creating the best possible fabric for your garment. Those factors include what the garment is, what season the garment will be worn in, and what your own personal preferences are. As you work with your custom tailor in order to create your custom wardrobe, always keep those factors in the forefront of your decision making process and all of your garments will serve the purpose that they were designed to.

Best Fabrics for Every Garment

Each custom garment has an optimal fabric for the garment. For example, when it comes to the creation of a custom dress shirt, the optimal options would be high quality cotton or a quality silk. If you are designing a custom trouser, then the best option is nice wool. As part of the relationship that you are building with your custom tailor, talk about the qualities of each fabric and what makes it the best choice for the custom garment that you are designing. Then, the two of you can help decide together which fabric would be the best choice for that particular situation.

Every Season Has a Fabric

The next thing to consider when it comes to selecting the best fabric for your custom garment is what season that you will wear your custom garment in. If you plan to wear your garment in the spring or the summer, then you need to choose a lighter fabric in order to account for the temperature. However, if you will be wearing your custom garment in the fall or winter, you should choose a heavier fabric and possibly consider whether or not the garment may need a lining for added warmth.

Your Own Personal Style Preferences

Finally, consider what your own personal style preferences are. One of the main reasons that a person chooses to work with a custom tailor is that they want their style to be a reflection of who they are as an individual. When you work with a custom tailor, then you can represent your individual style and not fall victim to the mass market version of style that occurs when you choose off the rack clothing.

Working with a custom tailor is one of the most rewarding style experiences that a person can have. If you choose the right custom tailor, you have created a friend and business partner for life. You are able to select the best fabric for the garment and for the season. You are also able to design a custom garment that is a reflection of who you are and what you value. A custom tailor gives you the tools that you need in order to be uniquely you.
