How to save money buying suits online

Updated on March 2, 2016

Looking good without breaking the bank!

With plenty of options out there to save money on buying a custom suit online, it's hard to know where to start, and how to make sure you get the best bang for your buck. In this article, we'll go through the most important things to consider when choosing your online tailor, as well as how to ensure you get a properly fitting and well styled suit when ordering online.

Start at Your Local Tailor

Ensure your suit fits perfectly

When a suit is built specifically for you, tailors rely on accurate measurements of your body to construct a beautifully fitting suit, shaped to the contours of your body. This is truly the key to good style and comfort.

By getting your local tailor to take your measurements, you will ensure the suit you order online is made exactly how it would be done locally - while still maintaining the cost benefit of buying your suit online.

Research Your Style

Customize a suit for your body type

Different aspects of bespoke tailoring allow for particular aspects of your figure to be accented or reduced, to make for the most appealing presentation at work or formal events.

Various style choices include the lapel type, lapel edging, jacket vents, fabric color, pockets and liner type. Each of these options can affect your finished look, and should be carefully considered before ordering a suit online.>

Pick the Right Suit Fabric

Not all fabrics are suitable for every day

Sometime you are going to require a suit that you will be wearing quite frequently, such as to work or regular nights on the town. Other times, you will simply need a suit for the occasional formal events you attend. In either case, there is an "S Number" for you, which defines how heavy and durable a particular luxury fabric is.
