Toronto Custom Suits
The process begins with John taking your measurements. These aren’t your run of the mill, measurements. Part of the intrinsic attention to detail is that John will not only measure you, but will also use his keen, experienced eye to note any variations or asymmetry in your body. Posture is an important factor to take detailed notice to, as it can make or break the balance of the coat.
Following this comes the fun part, selecting your cloth. It is important to keep in mind what you are having the suit made for, (ie business, a formal event etc) as this will have an impact on what kind of cloth is most appropriate for your suit. After selecting your cloth, your work is done. It is time to sit back and let Ferrigamo and his team get to work. The team will create a pattern unique to, specific to your measurements that will be used time and time again for your future suits. The time and attention to detail are extremely crucial at this point of the process, and an important part of what makes a great custom suit.
You will then be called in for a fitting, or what is also known as an advanced “try-on”. This is the point in which you will try on the suit in ‘rough draft’ form. This is where John perfects the fit of your suit. This process is called ‘marking up’ and is yet another portion of the incredible detail and care put into your custom suit.
After making all necessary adjustments, you are then called in for the final fitting. At this fitting, John pays close attention to any corrections made after the first fitting, and then observes minor, last minute changes that might need to be made. For the most part, the suit is usually ready to take home at this point.
A JF custom made suit entails a plethora of very specific measurements unique to you, that results in a finished product that no off the rack garment can compare to. In addition to this, ready-made suits are normally made with cloth that is far inferior to that of bespoke suits. Granted, there is a range of cloth to choose from when having a custom suit made, but most reputable custom houses mainly offer high grade quality fabrics from England and Italy. Purchasing a John Ferrigamo suit will provide you with an incomparable fit, a sense of comfortability, as well as durability that an off the rack suit will never be able to offer. There are many brand name, ready made suits on the market that are so poorly constructed, but have a costly price tag simply because of the label.
Consumers need to educate themselves so that they are able to spot a poorly made garment, and realize that despite the name on the label, it is nowhere near worth what the asking price is. It is important that consumers look in to where the garment has been made, as well as where the cloth is from as these are both major indicators of quality. In addition to all of these points, buying a custom tailored suit can be a much more efficient, time saving way to shop, and also tends to be a much more enjoyable experience overall. As a result of every brand having their own interpretation of generic measurements, it is possible to end up trying on 10-20 different off the rack suits before you find one that even remotely fits you properly. This is not taking in to account the time needed to have alterations done to the suit after the fact. All of these inconvenient hassles can be avoided when you choose to take the custom route.
A well fitting suit shows sophistication, and maturity. Remember, patience is important when having a custom suit made, as attention to detail and ample time ensures that you are taking home a perfect garment.
You are now the epitome of class. Be proud. Toronto, you have ascended to a higher level of sophistication. There is nothing finer in this world than confidently wearing a custom-made suit.
