We often hear, “What's the difference between an off-the-rack suit and a custom suit?” Here are the top ten reasons why a made to measure suit is a must-have:

What’s an Off-the-Rack Suit?

An off-the-rack suit is mass-produced and available for immediate purchase. While it’s convenient and often cheaper, it comes in standard sizes and offers no customization, which might not suit everyone perfectly.

What’s an Off-the-Rack Suit?

Top TEN Reasons Custom Suits Beat Off-the-Rack

  1. Perfect Fit

At Carmel Tailoring, we make suits to your exact measurements and style. A Made to measure custom suit flatters your physique, making you look taller and leaner. No more altering off-the-rack suits—get a perfect fit from the start.

Perfect Fit
  1. One of a Kind

A custom suit is exclusive. Choose from thousands of fabrics, explore colors, weights, and blends (Wool, linen, silk, cashmere and etc), and consider your events and preferences. This ensures your suit is truly one of a kind.

One of a Kind
  1. Longevity

Custom suits last longer because they’re made with high-quality fabrics and precise measurements. Ill-fitting off-the-rack suits can wear out quickly, but a Made to measure custom suit withstands the test of time.

  1. Full Customization

The Carmel Tailoring experience allows you to personalize every aspect of your suit. Let your personality shine through with options like:

  • Belt loops/side adjusters
  • Pick stitching
  • Custom monogram
  • Contrast felt
  • Floral/paisley lining

  • Standard waist/ Adjustable waist

Clients love selecting their lining and adding custom monograms, especially for special occasions like weddings.

  1. Mix-and-Match Flexibility

Custom suits are versatile. You can mix and match pieces for different looks or choose unique patterns and colors for each piece. For instance, you might opt for a three-piece suit with a vest in a different color or pattern, adding depth and variety to your wardrobe. This flexibility ensures you always look stylish and coordinated.

Mix-and-Match Flexibility
  1. Personal Style

Avoid the awkwardness of wearing the same suit as someone else at an event. A custom suit reflects your personal style, making you stand out in any crowd. At Carmel Tailoring, we work with you to design a suit that matches your style preferences, whether you prefer classic, modern, or trendy designs.

Personal Style
  1. Attention to Detail

Custom suits are made with meticulous attention to detail. Every element, from the shoulders to the seams, is crafted to perfection, ensuring a flawless finish. The small details, like perfectly fitted shoulders or precisely stitched buttonholes, make a significant difference in the overall appearance of your suit.

Attention to Detail
