Made-to-measure Men's Suits
In this section we publish articles about the advantages of made-to-measure suits. Made to measure refers to clothing that is sewn from a standard-sized base pattern, however made-to-measure garments are constructed to fit each customer individually. A tailored suit is a common example of a made-to-measure garment. The fit of a made-to-measure garment is superior to that of a ready-to-wear garment, because ready-to-wear garments are constructed to fit the manufacturer's definition of an average customer. The primary benefits to the customer of made-to-measure clothing are that the garments will be well-fitted to the customer’s body and the customer may have the opportunity to customize the fabric and detailing. We want to hear your opinion! We are keen supporters of made-to-measure and if you have any thoughts on that, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
