Custom Suit Sale NYC

Buying a suit can be exciting for men, particularly if it is their very first one. For most men, however, it is more of a challenge and feels more stressful than pleasurable. BESPOKE SUITS STARTING AT $995

When it comes to buying suits, most men rush to the mall and pick up whatever seems closest to their size and taste. But why settle for something mediocre when you can easily have the best? I’m talking about custom suits, which are always going to look better than their store-bought counterparts.

Stepping into the world of stylish and fashionable dressing would require that you own something for every occasion. As far as high-fashion custom suits are concerned, you may want to consider getting your hands on the ever-chic and the versatile Italian suit.

High-quality men’s suit need not cost a bomb. In fact, custom Italian suits are quite affordable if you consider the use you can get out of them. A good custom Italian suit can last you a lifetime, if you wear it well and take care of it.

Here’s what every man needs to consider before buying a custom Italian suit.

Choosing the Fabric

When you buy a custom suit, you’re in charge of the whole affair. This applies even when picking the fabric you would like to feel on your skin. In fact, this one of the biggest factors that draws several men to buying custom Italian suits.

As far as the suit material is concerned, you need to be very careful with your choice. Depending on the quality of the material, it can cost you anywhere between a few dollars to a few hundred dollars per yard. In Italian suits, the fabric used is typically lightweight.

Cotton or linen suit would work very well in summers. The cotton fiber has good strength, is easy to sew and handle and drapes well. It does not crease as easily as linen. Both the materials are light in weight and breathable.

Woolen suits are highly preferable as well. They’re particularly great in the winter months. The best thing about woolen suits is that they’re wrinkle-resistant. Heavyweight wools tend to cost more than cotton. However, you have the option of going for materials like blended wools to strike a balance between quality and cost. You may want to consider the Zegna suits, made of 100% Zegna wool, for a suit that is elegant as well as durable.

Remember, high-quality materials will cost you more, but will also be worth every penny. At the end of the day you will end up with a suit that will look great and last you several years.

Styling the Suit

Italian men like to wear clothes that fit well. Their suits need to sit perfectly on their shoulders and their pants need to look chic and sharp. They understand style and realize that the seams connecting the shoulders and the sleeves of a suit jacket should sit where your shoulders meet your arms. If the seam sits lower than that, it is considered ill-fitted.

This holds true of the shirts as well. They should fit well i.e. gently embrace your torso, without being too tight. It is always a good idea to try on several sizes of shirts before you decide on which one fits you best. An easy way to determine whether or not the shirt fits you is by tucking it in to your pants. If the shirt fabric gathers at the back or hangs loosely in the front, you need to size down.

When it comes to donning Italian suits for men, each element needs to be tailored with care. As far as the pants are concerned, nothing ruins the overall look of an Italian suit than an uneven break.

Several men make the mistake of wearing pants that are not hemmed appropriately. Today, men prefer pants that just about kiss the top of the shoes or end an inch higher to show the ankle. For a more conservative look, the pants should be hemmed to fall a tad bit past the ankle.

The best way to have an Italian suit fitted to perfection is by having the shirts, the jacket and the pants custom made. While this may seem costly at first, know that it is worth the investment in the long term because you will spend less time and money on your quest for finding the perfect suit.

Focus on the Fit

Some of the most notable features of the Italian suit have always been a close cut, a slim fit, simple shoulders, a shorter length, and well-fitted armholes. More often than not, these suits are single-breasted and come with two buttons. The slim-cut trousers with a lower rise and jackets devoid of vents (modern Italian suits come with two vents as well) at the back help make your physique appear slimmer.

One of the most important considerations of wearing an Italian suit is that it is more suited to men who are slimmer and have a more European body structure. When worn right, these suits look extremely chic. Wearing them haphazardly, on the other hand, can make a man look like an unkempt boy.

If you’re skinny, you would do well to avoid skin-tight suits. In such a case, it is suggested to pick a suit that adds bulk to your frame. Men with an average frame can wear more fitted suits. Consider investing in Reda suits in various colors to add flair to your wardrobe.

Cost Concerns

Having a suit custom made is ideal because doing so gives you the power to style it in any way you want to. Whether it is the lining on the inside of your suit jacket, the buttons in the front, or the seams on your pants, it’s all your choice. Of course, the sartor will always be there to guide you when you’re undecided on something.

A lot of men tend to worry that custom-made Italian suits can be quite pricey and even the minutest details can add exorbitantly to the overall cost. This is not always true and depends greatly on the choices you make.

The basic plastic suit jacket buttons, for instance, don’t cost much and make for an economical option. Wooden, silver or gold buttons, on the other hand, will cost you significantly more. This also applies to the lining used in making the suit. Natural silk will cost you higher than cotton or blends. Plus, the price of a printed/patterned lining material will be higher than that of a plain one.

Even factors such as the number of pockets in your pants, adding extra covert pockets inside the jacket can have a bearing on the price of a custom Italian suit.

Do not, however, let the price be the deciding factor on how you want your suit to be. Focus on quality, fit and incorporating the features you need to derive the maximum benefit of owning a custom suit. This will also make the expenses worthwhile.

Custom Wedding Tuxedos

Your Guide – Be Ready For all Events by Kelsi Trinidad

Another invite and another attempt to decipher the sometimes daunting dress code. With categories like White Tie, Black Tie, and Lounge, it can be overwhelming and confusing at times. Whether it’s charity gala or a formal wedding, dressing the part doesn’t have to be a cryptic task.

Black Tie The words “Black Tie” may conjure up memories of high school dances, but now that you are all grown up, this type of affair is a bit more involved than renting the generic polyester tux set from your local suit emporium (gross). When you attend the company awards nights, your sister’s formal wedding, or charity event that calls for Black Tie, it’s important abide by the rules to look your best. You don’t want your peers to get the impression that you’re as clueless as a pimply teenager. A classic black tuxedo is still the standard at these events. The typical tuxedo jacket has a single button and is single breasted with a satin peak lapel and no vent. A black bow tie and black patent leather oxfords are a must. Optional additions to the basic tuxedo include a simple (usually white) pocket square or an elegant opera scarf if you’re feeling a bit spry.

Black Tie is the most commonly used dress code for any polished event and knowing how to dress for it is a great weapon to have in your arsenal. A variation on the traditional Black Tie dress code is Warm Weather Black Tie which features a white jacket instead of black and is sometimes called upon for summer formal events. Formal or evening weddings, company awards dinners, and some private dinners are all occasions that may require you to don a tuxedo.

Black Tie Optional

The fact that the word “optional” is in the title is only begging for confusion. A host may choose this dress code if they want to be considerate of the fact that not all guests may have a tuxedo. At these events, it is acceptable to forgo the tuxedo (if you absolutely must) and opt for a polished black suit. However, if you have the means, we still encourage you to wear a tuxedo of some sort. Because of the precarious nature of the word “optional,” we suggest you to contact the host if you need clarification.

A Black Tie Optional event is still formal in nature but it has slightly more relaxed rules for attire. A tie is still necessary and so are your polished black shoes. Accessories can be used to express personal style. Instead of a bow tie, you can opt for a necktie with a handsome tie bar or a classy lapel flower. Tie bar placement is key, so if you are a tie bar rookie, check out our ultimate guide to tie bars. You’re most likely to run into this category at weddings, stylish events, formal dinners, and galas.

Black Tie Creative

This variation on the standard Black Tie category allows the party to get started with a little festivity. Black Tie Creative is an opportunity to showcase your personal style in terms of color, accessories, and collar and lapel style. You may opt for the uncommon shawl lapel or a slim cut tuxedo in a dark saturated color like midnight blue or maroon. A colored jacket, colored wingtips shoes, or a brightly colored bow tie are all fair game in this category. Even going with a black shirt instead of white can add subtle creative flair. Although this dress code offers flexibility, it is important to keep in mind that if the event is“Black Tie” at all, no matter how festive or creative it is, it is a formal event and your sartorial modifications should still honor a the formal atmosphere of the event. Keep in mind that wearing a standard tux or an ensemble with “black tie optional” qualities is also perfectly acceptable.

A variant of the Black Tie Creative dress code is Festive Black Tie. How you should dress to this occasion depends on the given situation or theme of the party. The most common example of a Festive Black Tie event is a company Christmas party, but there are infinite ways to twist it and that depends on the host. Fun themes like “Black Tie and Boots” call for wearing a bolo tie with a tuxedo or sporting a Western-themed tie or cufflinks.

Lounge A Lounge dress code event maintains formality while allowing for the integration of more color and options into your look. Tuxedos are totally out of the picture for this dress code. A suit in a dark, neutral color such as classic black, navy, or gray is recommended. Take a little liberty with your lapel and collar style as Lounge attire is less strict than the other formal dress codes. Polished shoes are not necessary and both black and brown shoes work. If you are feeling adventurous, mix in a pastel colored shirt or a subtly patterned tie to give your suit character. Pairing a skinny tie with a nice tie bar can give your Lounge outfit a modern edge. This category can be worn to daytime formal parties or business dinners.

Gone is the dread of another invitation with a dress code! Now that you are seasoned in formal dress codes, take a little liberty when you can and remember when you shouldn’t. The age-old rule of thumb has not changed, it’s better to be overdressed than under-dressed.

Ok the date is set and all the planning is a go. What should the groom wear? Custom bespoke tuxedo? Or Custom suit? There is no one answer or one size fits all response to that question. It is your call to make UNLESS there is a set dress code.

There is no more elegant garment to wear than a tailored tuxedo- black or navy blue will do the trick. Yes there are hipper and cooler options like a bright royal blue or a red wine. Both of those are a bit more fashion forward and usually lean to a younger crowd and body type. The collar or lapel dictates quite the look of your tuxedo, Notch collar or lapel is the enduring classic basic, Peak offers a bit of savoir fare, Shawl or round collars are very cool and very James Bond(ish).
