When you look good, you feel good and a tailor-made suit is no exception to the rule. There are many myths surrounding custom tailored suits which may cause you to lean towards buying off the rack, but before you spend hours finding an ill-fitting suit, let’s debunk some common myths.

Myth: A Looser Fit Is More Comfortable

Many men think that a looser fitting suit is more comfortable, especially if you plan on wearing it for a long day at the office, but that’s not actually true. Ill-fitting suits can make you look unprofessional, lazy or sloppy, whereas custom tailored suits are designed to fit your unique body without being too tight or too loose, so you don’t have to compromise style for comfort.

Myth: A Custom Tailored Suit is Only for Men Who Don’t Fit Off the Rack

As our bodies change, so does the way a suit fits, altering our appearance and the impressions we leave on others. If your size fluctuates, you typically can’t alter an off the rack suit to fit your new body. Instead you’ll be stuck purchasing another suit. A custom tailored suit however, is designed to mold to your ever-changing shape It can be altered to fit you throughout the different stages in your life, giving you many more years out of your personalized suit. In the long run, purchasing and altering a custom-made suit will save you countless hours and dollars shopping for off the rack suits.

Myth: The Level of Quality is About the Same

This may be the biggest myth of them all! You simply can’t compare a suit that was made specifically with you in mind to a suit made on an assembly line designed for the masses. A custom tailored suit is crafted by a professional tailor, providing a level of quality that is unbeatable. In addition to receiving personalized attention and care, you will also be able to customize your suit to fit your needs. You can choose the fabrics, colors and style that suit your personality and lifestyle. When purchasing a suit off the rack, often times men have to make sacrifices because it is difficult to find everything you want.
