Let me start this post by asking you, how many women do you know that wear a tailored women’s blouse?

Not many right?

Now how many ladies you know have completely different body shapes?

Almost every women has a different body shape than the next don’t they. Which is great, because a women’s body is beautiful and so unique in the fact that no two women’s torso’s are the same.

Which makes us here at Suit Me Up wonder why more tailored women’s blouses are not worn by any and all women for that matter? The only answer we could come up with is that most women don’t realize how cheap and easy it is to get a tailored women’s blouse. Especially compared to trying to fit into those one size fits all blouses that gets sold at your average department store.



The fact is though, why should women have to succumb to wearing those potato sack blouses made in China?

The answer is, women shouldn’t!

There are better alternatives, and we are not being biased to suggest that Suit Me Up is the only place with an answer for those women who not only want to look good but feel good.

Buying a tailored women’s blouse is becoming more and more accessible these days the more online tailors pop up all over the internet. The coolest thing about this is though, that a tailored women’s blouse costs just as much if not the same as those average blouses from the department stores.

The real benefit is that buy buying a tailored women’s blouse online is that you can measure yourself in the comfort of you home, do your shopping online and have your tailored women’s blouse sent right out to you at home.

That means for the same price as buying a potato sack shirt made in China from the department store, you can have your own tailored women’s blouse made to fit you and only you!

Though when ordering your mens customer suits online there are always a few things you you want to think about first in order to ensure you are actually ordering the perfect suit for you.

Which is why we would like to quickly cover for you 4 important steps to choosing and designing your mens custom tailore suits online.

1. Occasion

Before you even start designing your suit take a step back and think about what you really need this suit for. Is it for work or business? Maybe it is for black tie events, a wedding, the spring races or just a casual suit you would like to wear to dinner parties.

Making sure you know what the occasion will be for wearing your suit will help you to chose the right type of suit for that event.



2. Colour

For obvious reasons, when designing your mens custom suits online having the right coulour is very important. Which is why you want to know what occasion the suit is for too.

We suggest choosing lighter colours like light grey, navy and sometimes charcoal for office suits and more formal suits are generally a darker colour. Wearing a casual suit you can expirement more so with these types of suits and choosing a colour that best suits you would be a wise move.



3. Style

Now that you know when and where you want to wear your suit and you have the colour choice sorted. Choosing the style of your suit is something you want to pay close attention too as there are so many things to consider from the lapel, pockets, the amount of buttons you would like, back vents, the style of pants and the list goes on.

When designing your mens custom suits online, take your time to view all the options and create something that is completely tailored to your tastes.



4. Detailing

Last but not least is adding details to the suit, which is normally done to more formal suits for weddings and black tie events although detailing any suit makes the suit pop out more and really says a lot about the way you like to dress.

Detailing can be anything from inside embroidery to suit linings, satin lapels or pocket linings and even pick stitching with pocket detailing.

The cool thing about detailing a suit is you can go as fancy or traditional as you like. This is the biggest perk of ordering your own custom mens tailored suit online as you can tailor the whole suit to your tastes.

Since the internet has come along tailored suits are able to be made a lot faster due to many reasons. Once huge one being that the customer (you) can measure yourself at home according to the measurement guidelines and order your suit all online, from basically anywhere in the world. You could even order yourself a suit right from your office chair!

You also may be thinking that since these tailored suits can be made fast, what happens to the actual quality of the suit? Wouldn’t it be better for the tailor to take their time?

Which is an excellent point, however since that the tailors only have one job to do which is designing the suits as apposed to meeting for appointments, scheduling and doing admin work.

Everybody’s body is different and suiting up for your body type is very important if you want to be looking your utmost best. That could mean getting your suit shape and style right for any occasion being formal, casual, interviews of for dates we have you covered in this post.

Suiting up for your body is going to help you look good no matter what your body shape is. That is why having tailored your clothes is best, because you have something that is designed to fit your body shape and not everybody else’s like those off the rack garments.



Tall Timbers

Now if you are on the taller side, for example anything from 6 feet and over. A longer cuff is needed and an extra inch or more won’t go astray. By adding this to your design it will show that your suit is in proportion with your height.

Since you are tall also you want to ensure that your shirts are long enough to be tucked in, even if you are not wearing them tucked in either. You don’t want to be wearing something that looks like it has shrunk in the wash; this only looks cheap and tacky. Which is certainly not suiting up to your body type at all when wearing shirts too short for your torso.





Skinny Bodies

For the skinner body type, you want to show this off by buttoning up your jacket. And just because you have a trim physique does not mean you can flag having a nicely tailored suit. Because most off the rack suits will fit in one section around your body but will gulp up your arms and waist making you look boxy and unstable. To avoid this asking for narrower sleeves and a slim fit suit will have you looking sharper than ever.



Shorter Lads

Without having a lot of height having no pant break can give you that extra bit of height. We also suggest going for a suit or shirt with vertical stripes can help with an elevated appearance. Going for a pinstriped suit or even a vertically striped shirt will help, but never together. That would just look silly and would almost look like you are suiting up for your body type too much.

When having your jacket tailored too, make sure it’s length is just right as an extra inch on your jacket can make you look an inch shorter. Having the length of your jacket and pants correct is crucial which is why having tailored garments are best.



Stocky Sailors

If you have a solid and stock build again wearing pinstripes can stretch our your build and make you appear longer. When you have your suit tailored also ask the tailor to be easy on the pants but never let them be a baggy style or cut. Leaving room for your thighs and then tapering the pants in from the knees down will look best for your build. Having no hem on your pants with also no pant break is something you should opt for too.



Solid Upper body

If you have more of an athletic upper body and square shoulders, going for the double breasted suit style can look really good. Although the double breasted jacket can allow the upper body to look bulky, however asking your tailor to keep a slim fit approach to the suit will help it to suit beautifully on the body.

Going for a darker coloured suit for the double breasted option and keeping it slightly unstructured to allow your body to do the supporting of the suit. If you too have quite square shoulders asking the tailor for natural shoulders without big pads will be better for your body shape.



Bigger Belly

Suiting up for your body type when your belly is a bit bigger is best done by avoiding the double-breasted suit. This helps to prevent bulkiness in that area. Instead going for the two button single-breasted suit is a better and more streamlined choice in suit for this body shape.



Talking With Your Tailor

Don’t know what to order, that is fine. Simply be sure to talk to your tailor. We are always happy to help with your options when suiting up and can give the best advice for your body type If you are still a little uncertain for what may look best.
