a modern take on perfection.

When a suit is much more than a suit.
ow ironic: even as the business world grows more casual, men are showing an increased interest in made-to-measure clothing. In addition to offering a perfect fit, this tailored clothing option allows the wearer to select his own fabrics, buttons, lining, stitching and lapels. Most importantly, a man can express his unique style by investing in a suit that truly reflects his personality and taste level. More than an investment in clothing, it’s a show of confidence and creativity. Among the numerous reasons for the recent growth in MTM business at retail: more affordable prices than in the past, often just a 15 percent surcharge vs. off-the-rack suits. What’s more, most upscale clothing makers can now create and deliver beautiful customized clothing in just two to six weeks, even out of Italy. The proliferation of made-to-measure suits on high-profile athletes and celebrities has also inspired more guys to give this option a try. And today more than ever, as the fashion pendulum in menswear has moved toward slimmer suits, the primary raison d’etre for made to measure clothing is fit. With clothing racks now filled with suits that are skinnier than the men who want to wear them, more guys than ever are turning to made-to-measure, especially those with a little extra weight in the midsection or those with athletic builds. Even guys with ideal proportions are loving this option since nothing shows off a great body like a perfectly fitting suit. The process is simple. Come into the store and one of our highly trained associates will take your measurements (generally anywhere from 15 to 25). Then sit down, relax, and let us show you our incredible selection of gorgeous fabrics from the best mills in the world. Many of the patterns are understated and classic (herringbones, glen plaids, pinstripes) but you might choose to step out of your comfort zone and opt for something a bit more bold and expressive. A deco stripe in purple? French blue instead of navy or silver grey instead of charcoal? Why not? Then once you’ve decided on fabric, we’ll help you with the details: working buttonholes if you like, contrast stitching, cuffs, pleats, the choice is yours! Bottom line, made-to-measure suits are a wonderful clothing option for everyone from investment bankers to grooms-to-be to college grads about to tackle job interviews to creative types who want to stand out from the crowd. A good made-to-measure suit is both an investment in yourself and a reflection of who you are, a subtle (or not so subtle) way of showing the world your confidence, and competence. And guys who know who they are generally get what they want, in business and in life.
