Hard to fit?

For the average guy, buying clothes “off the rack” can be as easy as 1,2,3.  Now for everyone else, options include the “Big N Tall” stores or endless searches on the internet.

In the tailored clothing market, better brands offer made to measure.  That process can be as simple as your salesperson ordering your size, or a tailor taking specific measurements to make your personal pattern.  In the picture above, the half constructed jacket is called a “basted try-on”.  I call it the skeleton of a suit, or your schematic to making your suit jacket fit correctly.  If you’re a 38s or 44xl and can’t find clothes that fit, this might be the best investment you can make.

Better brands, such as Hickey Freeman, Kiton, Zegna, Brioni, all have skilled tailors that can get you started on the right path to looking your best.
