Are you a gentleman who yearns to distinguish himself from the crowd? Someone who knows that to be successful, you have to dress the part.
It is common knowledge that in a cosmopolitan city – such as Toronto – you need more than a nice suit to stand-out. You need a custom wardrobe designed by a highly-skilled tailor or seamstress.
Here are 10 things that our experienced tailors at Love Your Tailor in Toronto can do for you.
1.You will look and feel great.
Your tailor or seamstress will make your clothes fit like they have never fit before. You will wear clothes that fit the contours of your body with such precision that you will be astonished at how great you look. And not only will you be impressed. Your friends and family will also be amazed how the “new you” looks. And, of course, with looking great comes the amazing effect of feeling great. When you look in the mirror, you will see yourself in the best light possible, and your self-esteem will sky rocket. Once your tailor has fitted your body with custom made clothes, your confidence will also be at an all-time high. So, next time you walk into a meeting room or interview, your confidence will help you seal the deal.
2.You will get more bang for your buck.
Believe it or not, you will actually save money by getting your clothes custom fit by a tailor. One of the many reasons people are constantly buying new clothes is because the clothes just “don’t look like right” anymore. That’s because they never looked right. You were just fooling yourself. If you invest some time and money into getting your clothes tailored by a reputable tailor or seamstress, your clothes will look stylish for a long time. Why? Because they fit you properly. You will be amazed how a well-fitting wardrobe equates to a stylish wardrobe. In effect, you will have less of a desire to go shopping for new clothes, because you will love your tailor-fitted clothing.
3.Your suit jacket will fit like a glove.
Your tailor will take your “off the rack” suit jacket and turn it into a one-of-a-kind piece that is made just for you. Many times, your jacket will be slightly too big, and will prevent your true body frame from showing. In order to accentuate your build, your tailor can take the following steps.
First, the tailor can modify the sleeves. A slim fit is the key here. You do not want your sleeves to be too tight, or too baggy. Your tailor will modify the fit to be “just right.” Second, you will also want to make sure that your sleeves are a sufficient length. Generally, sleeves need to be shortened, but in the rare instance that they need to be lengthened, your tailor can do that as well. (Note: Although your tailor can lengthen the sleeves, he will not be able to lengthen the jacket itself.) With that said, you will certainly have to make sure that your jacket is not too long. That looks sloppy, and your tailor will make alterations to ensure the length of your jacket is proper. An experienced tailor will also be able to adjust the size of the suit jacket’s waist area to fit your waist, so that you have that v-shaped look that complements your body.
This last point is very important — the shoulders! You want to make sure that you don’t have overextended shoulder pads. The shoulders on your jacket should end where your actual shoulders end. Otherwise, you risk looking like a strangely built man. The contours of your body will shine if the shoulders are properly tailored.
4.Your clothes will be comfortable.
Are you tired of your clothes being too tight in one area, and then too loose in another area? Or having the waist fit great, but the length be way too short? I am sure you are. We all are. That’s why we get our clothes custom tailored. After your seamstress takes your measurements, customizes your clothes and fits them to your body – you will feel like a million dollars. Your clothes will fit so well, that comfort will become second nature.
5.Your shirt and pants will match your tailored jacket.
A loosely fitting shirt looks bad. There is no way of getting around that fact. It will make your body look oddly shaped, and it will be constantly “untucking” from your pants. Your tailor can easily modify the shirt so that the collar, sides and length meet your specific needs. Speaking of the collar. Although collar tailoring can be time consuming, it is a worthwhile venture if you are looking for a shirt that fits perfectly. The tailor will most likely remove the collar and then perform his magic. And, of course, the pants. You need to ensure that your waist fits perfect. Otherwise you will either look like a sausage link or a clown. Either version is not the look you want. Also, the length is extremely important. You want to make sure that the pants end at the precise location near your ankles. Your tailor can handle that task with no problem.
6.You will become a beacon of positivity.
Any time your confidence is boosted by looking and feeling great, you will unquestionably feel more positive as well. And with this new found positivity, others will be drawn to you. There is no doubt that people enjoy being around positive individuals. No one wants to be in the presence of a downer. So, an amazing side effect of having tailored clothes is the positivity that will begin to course through your veins, and seep its way into everything you do, and everyone you encounter.
7.Your body type will be enhanced.
Every one of us has a different body type. So, how are we supposed to find clothes that fit us when the person who made the clothes has never met us? We can’t. That’s where tailors come into play. They can take down your precise measurements, and create clothes that will complement your physique. Custom tailored clothes will accentuate the parts of your body that deserve it, and hide the parts that…well…we are not so proud of. Your body will never look as good as it does in a custom designed article of clothing.
8.You will always be in style.
No matter what the current trend is, you are guaranteed to be in style. Tailors are up to speed on what the current clothing styles are, and they will guide you through the process. Although you are the ultimate decision maker on what your clothes will look like, your tailor will offer you invaluable input as to what the current trend is concerning the particular article of clothing you are having tailored. Always being in style is a game changer.
9.You will always be the best dressed guy in the room.
Whether it be a business meeting, job interview, or a night out in town, you are guaranteed to be the guy turning heads. The one who’s wearing amazing clothes, and who is exuding confidence. Women and men will be drawn to you. Because, after all, you are the guy who knows what style really is.
10.What to except.
If you make the smart decision to have your clothes tailored, you can expect to work with a craftsman (or woman) who takes their job very seriously. You will go to their shop, and they will take measurements and ask lots of questions. The questions will enable them to better understand what you are looking for. Once this has been done, you will leave your clothes with the tailor, and depending on the complexity of the tailoring, you will generally have your clothes back within a week. You will then have one more fitting at the shop to make sure all is well. At this time, your tailor may make some minor modifications. Afterwards, you can take your clothes home and begin to wear them.
