Building bespoke suits is a commitment to a project that leaves you looking good. The amount of time and effort it takes to produce the finished product is part of what makes the whole experience to rewarding. Every suit you make presents a new experience that is never quite the same as the last-always a little bit better.
Developing a good working relationship with your tailor becomes a factor in improving how efficiently your suits are designed. The first suit you make includes many detailed measurements before building the canvas. The tailor will take your measurements for the first time. When a suit is made within a short time after the first suit, the tailor can use the original measurements to get the suit started and you can skip straight to the basting fitting after you place your order. This is of course, assuming that you have already decided on the colours and fabric.
Choosing features are usually easier the second time round because the first suit you’ve made provides a good indication to how you you would build your second suit. With a point of reference, it’s easier to know what you liked and didn’t like in the first suit and how you would make it better.
Handmade suits are definitely known for the highest level of comfort from the way they are fit to the body. By building a number of suits with the same tailor, it’s only natural that he becomes better at tailoring suits to your body. Every body is different and when you focus on something long enough, you get better at what you’re focusing on. There are small subtleties people pick up in their professions that are small details to an untrained eye and yet they make a difference. By working with your tailor on a second or third suit, there is a good chance he improves on the subtleties that make you look better.
The amount of time spent in building the first suit is enough time to build a working relationship with your tailor. After multiple fittings and discussions on what you like and what the tailor suggests, each of you develop an idea of how each other works what style you’re aiming to create. The collaboration of two minds over time become more efficient as they work towards the common goal of making you look your best.
