Tailoring can improve the fit on any garment; however, all the massaging in the world will not make an inferior garment fit, feel and look like a garment constructed with great workmanship. A flat piece of fabric will only conform to the intricate shape of the human body, and retain that shape if the infrastructure is there to support it. It pays to buy quality from the outset.
- A coat that is too tight draws attention to ones middle.
- A shirt collar that fits to snuggly portrays one of “uncomfortableness.”
- Trousers that are too long, or too short, appear sloppy.
- Sleeves that are too long make the body look out of proportion.
Great fit begins before the tailor touches the garment. A Wardrobe Consultant knows how to properly measure a client and translate that information into recommendations; thereby, presenting the tailor with the proper baseline from which to hone the final appearance.
