What are bespoke suits Toronto?
Custom suits mirror sophistication and class, but when did men decide that this was necessary? Following the beginning of the industrial revolution, suits started to be mass-produced as a cheaper, quicker alternative to having a bespoke suit made. The change was inevitable; how could the world argue the ability to make thousands of new suits per week as opposed to just a few? The lower price made sales soar and the importance of a well fitted suit was almost abandoned altogether. As the industrial revolution came to a close in the early 1800s, some of today’s most well established bespoke tailors opened their doors as men began to return to the refined look. A well-fitted suit exemplifies confidence and success among countless other desirable traits.
The man who arrives at a formal ball, job interview, applies for a loan, or even makes a court appearance in a perfectly fitted suit, will leave an unforgettable first impression on all of the right people. The effect that a bespoke suit has on a man’s confidence is priceless.
Around the time that brands like Henry Poole and Co were established, is the time men finally retrieved their senses and realized that quality in terms of a suit, is far more important than quantity. While the popularity has been unsteady throughout the years, men always find their way back to their roots. The reason behind this goes back to what was mentioned above: quality over quantity. A bespoke suit does not ask, it demands attention in a way that leaves other men curious and women star struck. It makes the wearer inhale confidence and exhale masculinity.
Think about the most classic historical figures you can recall. George Clooney, Sean Connery and Daniel Craig (among other actors to play James Bond), they all depict how great dress directly correlates with success. Although, there is one man in history that receives credit for revolutionizing men’s style into how we see it today, Beau Brummell.
At the opposite end of the industrial revolution, as mass produced suits had become the rage, Beau Brummel sought to change that by wearing dark colored, plain, perfectly fitted bespoke suits. Befriending the Prince of Wales furthered his fame as his style of dress began to spread throughout the world and into what we see now. He is almost solely responsible for the fame of trousers that reach the ankle instead of the knee, dark colored clothing, and even the necktie (although his choice wasn’t a tie you’d see today, he is responsible for revolutionizing men’s neck-wear).
Brummel’s influence on bespoke suits left the world with a spiking gain in the purchase of them, but the popularity has shifted randomly throughout the years. Falling subject to trends, bespoke suits appear to be requested by a select few for only short periods of time before they meet the inescapable fate of falling ‘out of style’. However, for the past several years wearing a perfectly fitted suit seems to be making its way back into modern fashion in a revitalized way. The trend seems to show that it will remain this way for years to come as society acknowledges the greatness of a well-groomed man in a flawless suit.
The list of reasons why purchasing a John Ferrigamo bespoke suit is an investment could go on for ever, but the high points are rather simple. They project an immense amount of confidence and maturity, coupled with the respect and attention one gains are unbeatable. Avoid the deep V-neck t-shirt and sweat pants, reach for the casual suit with a suave pair of oxfords or chukka boots. Keep in mind, shirts should be well pressed and fit snugly through the chest and stomach area, as well as in the arms. Shoes should be the correct size, and socks have the ability to make a statement about your personality, so have fun with them. All of this added to a quality bespoke suit makes for an impeccable look.
The only downfall to bespoke suits in Toronto is the price tag. Prices can range anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000 dollars for a well tailored bespoke suit, depending on the cloth. Aside from this, please keep in mind that a classic man never goes out of style. Fashion should not be determined by the label or the price tag attached; the attention should be drawn to the sophistication and maturity, the class, and elegance. A world without class is a sad one, indeed. Don’t let being well dressed remain a luxury. Make it a necessity of the modern man, and the entire world will follow.
