My first made to measure suit, what do i need to know? choosing a style, perfecting the look

Choosing a made to measure suit can be both exciting and daunting, especially if it is your first time.

With so many options to consider, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

However, with a little bit of knowledge and guidance, you can achieve the perfect look that will make you feel confident and stylish.

 The first step in the process is choosing a style that suits your body type and personal taste your personal stylist can advise you here.

It is important to keep in mind that a made to measure suit is custom-made specifically for your body, so it is crucial to choose a style that will enhance your best features and hide any imperfections.

Take some time to research different styles, such as single-breasted or double-breasted, and decide which one will suit you best.

Additionally, consider the occasion for which you will be wearing the suit.

For a formal event, a classic, timeless style may be more appropriate, whereas a more modern and trendy style can be worn for a casual occasion.

Once you have chosen a style, the next step is perfecting the look. This includes selecting the right fabric, colour, and details such as buttons and lapels.

The fabric should be of high quality and suitable for the climate and season in which you will be wearing the suit.

The colour should complement your skin tone and match any accessories you plan to wear again your stylist can advise you here too.

When it comes to details, it is important to strike a balance between simplicity and personalization.

Too many details can make the suit look busy and overwhelming, while too few can make it appear dull and uninteresting.

Lastly, don't forget to consider the fit of the suit.

A made to measure suit should fit you like a glove, so be sure to communicate any concerns or preferences to your tailor.

With these tips in mind, you can create the perfect made to measure suit that will make you look and feel your very best
