Here are few tips to help you place the order for Custom Garment on our online store and a brief on order placement process to make your ordering process easy.
Step 1 : How to Submit Sizes ?
The initial step in ordering custom garments online is submitting sizes. For your convenience, we have created our measurements forms in a way that makes it easy, accurate and fun!
Ours is a very comprehensive form that can be used for all types of custom garments, including shirts, suits, pants, skirts, coats, tuxedos, pant suits, skirt suits etc.
Two dimensional measurements such as lengths, shoulder widths etc can be taken off another piece of clothing that fits well but three dimensional measurements such as chest circumference, stomach etc should be taken directly off the body.
Please use the video clips and sketches on the forms to see how best the measurements should be taken.
Our patent pending size variables formulae ensure that any error in measurements is quickly identified and then our team of Master tailors verifies each and every measurement for any first time clients to find any discrepancy which is communicated to the customer for reconfirmation.
This is the secret of the 97% success rate we have with the measurements our clients submit.
You can also provide us with off the rack sizes along with a few basic measurements we request and our tailors with a combined 800 years of experience will ensure that you get a much better fit than you would have ever imagined possible.
Additionally, we can also use your front, side and back photos that can help us in proportioning the garments with accurate shoulder slope, back curve, waist height for that perfect piece of clothing that you have always dreamed of but never could find - until now!
You would need to create your account and a size profile by logging into the My Account section. Here you can submit your complete set of sizes or send in sizes copied from an existing garment that fits well or even use off the rack garments sizes with a few additional basic measurements.
The "Send sizes to copy" is an option wherein you can take the sizes from your well fitting garments.
If this also is inconvenient, you can easily ship a suit, shirt, skirt, coat, jacket or any other garment that fits you well for us to take sizes off of those for replication in your custom garments.
The next step is choosing the styles, fabrics and colors for your custom suits and shirts.
Step 2 : Which Style to choose?
In order to get the right style, first understand your body type and then follow these basic rules.
Every Tall Man and Women should know that -
1 - Lighter colors add width to a narrow frame.|
2 - A three or even two button suit works great on a tall man or woman - as long as the suit has relatively high - cut lapels/gorge.|
3 - Just because you are tall doesn't mean you need an extra-long suit size. Try a long first.|
4 - Keep the amount of cuff you show to a minimum.|
5 - Ask for a decent amount of break in your trousers, so your long legs don't look too long.|
6 - Don't buy suits with oversized, padded shoulders. They swallow you up, making you look frailer, not bigger.|
7 - Don't wear extra-slim ties. You need ties with a bit of width so they won't appear to elongate your torso.|
8 - Take a pass on those pointy dress shoes - you don't want to make your feet look longer than they are. Opt instead for a slightly rounder toe, to help keep your foot size in check.|
9 - Remember, when you are tall, you want your clothes to play down your height - to keep things in proportion. Accessories that cut across your body, such as belts, quarter folded pocket squares and horizontally striped ties, help accomplish this.|
Every Short Man and Petite should know that -
1 - A pant leg with very little break will help you look taller.|
2 - Show some cuffs to lengthen the look of your arms.|
3 - A Peak lapel helps elongate your physique.|
4 - A lower button stance creates long lines, and that essentially stretches you out.|
5 - A belt makes you look shorter. A more pared down you are, the taller you will appear. So ditch the belt. Going belt-less looks cool, and if your suit fits properly, your pants will stay in place.|
6 - You don't want to look like you have got weights around your ankles. Wear slender shoes.|
7 - Shorter guys are best at pulling off bolder patterns. Pinstripes, Glen Plaids and Prince of Wales are the classics.|
8 - In order to give a broad look, go with rope shoulders and high armhole.|
Every Large Man or Women should know that -
1 - Wear a pocket square - it brings the focus to your chest, not your gut.|
2 - Keep your jacket buttoned unless you are sitting down.|
3 - Wear a simple, elegant shirt. Avoid plaids and checks.|
4 - You can wear flat front pants, They are engineered to be comfortable , even without pleats.|
5 - Avoid super skinny ties and lapels. Proportion with your torso is the key.|
6 - Don't wear a roomy suit. It doesn't make you look slimmer - it makes you look sloppy.|
7 - Don't go un-tucked.|
8 - Avoid having to choose between strapping your pants above or below your belly; Wear suspenders and float your waist.|
9 - Don't wear strong patterns - they will only emphasize your girth. Instead, choose a simple dark suit; a light colored or pencil striped shirt ; and a dark tie.|
10 - Choose shoes that have a substantial sole. You need something solid to anchor your weight.|
Every Athletic build Man and Women should know that -
1 - A solid build doesn't mean your suit should be a size too large.|
2 - Two - button jackets sync up with the V-shape of your torso.|
3 - Low - collar shirts work well with a thicker neck.|
4 - Your Jacket will likely need to be taken in at the sides.|
5 - Yes, you can wear narrow - cut trousers. It's your chest that needs room, not your ankles.|
6 - Don't wear peak lapels. Your chest and shoulders are broad enough - no need to accentuate them.|
7 - Don't wear a pocket square. It's not necessary to call more attention to your already proud chest.|
8- Athletic Cuts Suits are also called "8 inch drop suits".|
9- Athletic Cut Suits are cut trimmer in the sides and the trouser size is smaller so you don't need to buy a larger size to get a right fit.|
Where - and how - your upper half meets your lower half can cause more than few challenges.
Short torso - long legs?
The Solution - stay away from pleated high waisted pants that exaggerate your shorter upper half. Instead, look for suits with flat front trousers that sit lower on your hips, like jeans.
Long torso - short legs?
The Solution - Avoid low rise pants, no matter how cool they might be. You can never go wrong wearing a suit Jacket with a pair of 501s, which tend to sit a bit higher on the hips.
Extra wide hips?
The Solution - The easiest thing to do is keep your suit Jacket on - this calls attention to your shoulders, not your broad waist. And look for suit Jackets with side bents which help break up your wide backside.
Dress and Business Shirts for Men and Women -
Of all the details on the shirt, collar style is the most important specification which requires particular attention while ordering a custom dress shirt.
Tall or Oval Face with long Neck -
1. Full-cut shirts must shows ? inch of shirt cuff. |
2. White contrast collars and cuffs break up length. |
3. Amply proportioned spread collars.|
4. Broadly spaced, fine-lined stripes, tattersall check, windowpanes, and horizontal stripes.|
Broad Face and thick Short Neck -
1. Vertical shirt collar such as tab or long points. |
2. Solid, striped, or patterned neckwear. |
3. Shirt with strong stripes.|
