5 Sustainable Benefits of Owning a Custom Suit!

Written by Briggs Clothiers


Posted on November 29 2021

A custom suit is a winning addition to your wardrobe. People sometimes associate the term “custom-made” with something expensive and unnecessary, when in fact, a custom suit is an investment that provides exceptional value.

A clothing factory simply cannot replicate the quality and longevity of a custom-designed suit. Custom suits look sharp and put the wearer a cut above the average well-dressed man.
Read on to learn more about the benefits of buying a custom-made suit.

Unparalleled Quality

A custom-made suit is a one-of-a-kind garment designed especially for you. You have a choice of fabric and materials that come from the finest mills and looms in the world. Custom-made suits present the opportunity for craftsmanship and customization that store-bought clothing cannot match.

Your handcrafted bespoke suit will remain a staple of your wardrobe for years to come. These benefits make buying a custom suit an excellent long-term investment.

A professional clothier has the expertise to address any repair or modification issue your garment may require down the line.

Custom Suits Save Time and Effort

If you don’t like shopping, weeding through the suit racks and navigating fitting rooms is exhausting and stressful, especially when you leave empty-handed.
On the other hand, working one on one with a tailor is focused and uncomplicated.

You consult with our master clothier on your preferred design, style, and detailing. He takes your measurements during the first consultation and keeps them on file for future appointments. The tailor gives you a timeline of the suit’s completion, and you return to the store for the final fitting and alterations, ensuring the perfect fit.

If you are too busy to spend time shopping for clothes, or if your profession requires you to dress to impress, a custom-made suit is a perfect solution.

Creative Control: You Weigh in on The Design and Fabric

When you buy a suit right off the rack, the brand chooses the fabric and design elements, leaving you feeling that you have to settle for the suit that comes closest to what you had in mind.

When custom creating a suit, every detail is a conscious choice, based on your taste and preferences. You decide on the fabric, pattern, and style from a curated swatch collection. But it doesn’t stop there. You have the ultimate say on every detail of your custom garment, including but not limited to the following:

● Buttons
● Pockets
● Stitching
● Lining
● Lapels
● Vents
● Thread color
● Shoulder Pads


You can weigh in on as much or as little of these details as you like. An experienced clothier will guide you through the process and help you make the best decision for your needs.

The Perfect Fit Regardless of Body Type

If your body does not conform with standard sizes, shopping off the rack can be especially challenging. Of course, you can buy a suit and send it to a tailor for alteration, but some measurements such as shoulder, armhole cross back, and chest, have a limited range for alteration. If shopping for clothing is frustrating because you are an irregular size, working with a tailor on a suit made to your specifications will feel like a dream come true.

You will find the process of treating yourself to a made-to-measure suit pleasurable and empowering instead of frustrating and deflating.

Investing in a custom suit guarantees that you look and feel your best. You will look forward to wearing it and stand with confidence in a garment that fits your frame to perfection. Once you experience this feeling, you will never settle for anything less.

Masterful Finishing

The beauty and uniqueness of a custom suit extend beyond exceptional materials and quality craftsmanship. The finishing refers to the fine details of a custom-made garment that you have the power to add or exclude.

The finishing of a suit is its “Wow Factor.” Those small details bring distinctive character to the garment and let you accentuate your style and personality. It is empowering to wear a suit made just for you and no one else.
