There are a few things that every great suit should have—quality cloth, correct styling, and local tailoring. Let’s look at each of these factors in some detail, to give you a clear picture of what we mean.
Quality cloth refers to the materials used to make the suit. They should be soft, comfortable, suited to the season—and of course, good looking. Many people can tell a poor-quality suit at a glance, and you don’t want to be the person wearing one when anybody with an eye for fashion is present. In fact, it’s safer if you don’t wear a suit like that at all.
Correct styling, on the other hand, refers largely to the cut and design of the suit. Some looks, like the single button breast, are practically timeless, whereas others may come across as more heavily styled—like a double-breasted jacket. Be careful, though, as more stylised looks can appear dated in certain situations. Then again, you should probably have a couple of different suits for different occasions, so some variety is often a good thing.
Local tailoring is the last of the big three, but it’s also one of the most important. You don’t want something made in a sweatshop halfway around the world. It isn’t ethical, and it often isn’t well-made. Working with local tailors, on the other hand, allows you to communicate with diligent professionals at every step of the process, and ensures that your suit will be made by real artists.
That’s the philosophy behind Rochefort Tailor — Shirtmaker — Tiemaker. Since 2002, we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing a classic luxury tailoring experience, with exceptional made to measure suits in Sydney CBD, Paddington, and the Eastern Suburbs. Come to us, and you’ll see why so many people choose Rochefort Tailor for their elegant garments.
The Advantage of Buying a Sydney Made to Measure Suit
What exactly is a made to measure suit? For the uninitiated, a made to measure suit refers to a suit that is cut from an existing pattern and adjusted to fit the measurements of the customer in question. While not as luxurious as a bespoke suit, this method provides a noticeable step up from the fast-fashion choices found in menswear stores and large chains across the globe. We help you choose the fabric you want, the style you prefer, and take measurements that include posture notes, so as to provide you with something that will fit better than any retail product you’ve ever purchased. If you’re considering made to measure suits from Paddington to the Eastern Suburbs or the CBD, we’ll be happy to help introduce you to their advantages.
We Prioritise Customer Satisfaction
It’s all about making sure that you’re happy with the suit you purchase when you choose to order from Rochefort Tailor. That being the case, we work closely with you to make sure that your made to measure suits from the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Paddington or the CBD meet your personal standards. With us, exquisite suiting is easy. Contact us today to find out how we can help you dress your best.
