Custom Suits Los Angeles - For The Perfect Fit!

Custom Suits Los Angeles
Before designers, big brand names, warehouse stores and suit brokers dominated the landscape, well dressed men of all stature, flocked to old world tailors who constructed suit outlet los angeles cut for each individual person. As time went by and the advent of mass production became the norm, finding these master craftsmen became harder and harder. Today a large amount of Americans still wear suits, but these are generally readymade. Especially during tough economic times, custom suits have become more a symbol of excess rather than value. While readymade suits continue to dominate the market place and full fill the need for instant gratification, more and more consumers are beginning to see the value that custom suits Los Angeles , with their perfect fit and high end craftsmanship, deliver. Seeing this change, we at MensUSA offer a large variety of custom suits Los Angeles with varying price range as well. We provide custom suits which meet the quality of branded clothes but the prices are extremely pocket friendly.

Bespoke Suits: Bespoke is the highest level of custom suits Los Angeles. This process remains unchanged for over a hundred years and is the truest form of old world custom tailoring.

Ways to tell if you are truly getting a bespoke suit:

1. Measurements are taken by the Master Tailor or his pattern maker, personally.

2. Patterns are drawn and cut by hand on muslin for each individual client.

3. The garment is fitted using a baste garment. A basted garment is a garment made with loose stitching so that it can be modified easily. Usually the best fitting garment is made from a cheap fabric so that errors and corrections can be made without ruining the clients selected fabric.

4. There are multiple fittings, usually between 2-5.

5. The master tailor and his apprentice will actually sew the garment. The apprentice will do the "grunt" work (basic sewing and cutting, i.e. sleeve and leg seams etc.) while the Master will do the "finishing" work (fine details i.e. the button holes, pick stitching etc)

Custom Suits Los Angeles
This term has the loosest definition and can encompass pretty much any of the grades of custom suiting. This is currently the biggest growing segment in custom suits Los Angeles and can be the most confusing area for the average consumer. With that said, there is a big step down from a bespoke suit, to a custom suit, to a made to measure suit, so knowing what to expect can go a long way to investing your dollars wisely in a quality custom suit.

Here is what to look for in a quality custom suit:

1. Measurements are taken by a professional tailor, designer or pattern maker. It would be advisable to avoid companies that use sales people to take measurements or even worse, ask you to take your own measurements. Even bespoke master tailors, who have spent decades, taking measurements, might do multiple fittings to get a garment perfect. It is hard to expect a novice (a sales person) or a beginner (the client) to get measurements consistently right for something as precise as a custom suit.

2. A new pattern is cut for each client.

3. No limitations to options. Often companies will call their made to measure suits (to be explained below) custom but they have to limit the optional details (such as buttons, pockets, button stance etc.) to keep within the patterns guidelines.
