We believe a well-fitted suit makes you look and feel great. Having a garment tailored expresses confidence. It does not matter the cost of the jacket or suit. It needs to be altered to give you the perfect fit you deserve.
Things you should know before your fitting:
- Know what kind of break you like in your pants. The break is the horizontal line in the fabric that happens where your pants hit your shoes. The length of your pant legs determines how pronounced the break is.
- Full break
- Half break
- Quarter break
- No break
- Know your sleeve length or ask us to take your measurement.
- If you are having your jacket sleeves shortened, be sure you wear a dress shirt for the fitting. The traditional rule is to show one-half inch of cuff under your jacket sleeve
- Know what kind of cuffs your sleeves have.
- Barrel cuffs: expose your cuff ½ inch below your jacket sleeve
- French cuffs: expose your cuffs a full inch or more depending on the shape and size of the cuff
- Flat-front pants generally have a straight hem, and pleated-front pants are generally cuffed.
- Tall men wear cuffed pants well, and average height men look best in plain hemmed pant.
- The sleeves, waist, crotch and pant length can all be altered as necessary.
- Shoulders CANNOT be altered, please make sure they fit.
"A man in a well-tailored suit will always shine brighter than a guy in an off the rack suit."
