It was a simple thing looking for the right tailor in the past. If your father had a good tailor, then you can go to that tailor, or you can ask someone selling men’s suits to recommend a good tailor to you. It is no longer that simple these days.
The reason for this is that today, there are too many tailors offering their services. But, despite having many tailors, the good ones are really difficult to find. If you ask a salesman for menswear, he will have little knowledge to point you to the right tailor that you are looking for. So now it becomes your duty to know how to find the right tailor. Finding the right tailor is not something you do sitting down.
It is important to educate oneself on the foundations of men’s styles before talking with a tailor. Men would naturally not want to sit down for hours and read about men’s wear. There are plenty of reasons why men don’t want to learn about men’s wear. You will find yourself increasing in interest in men’s wear, the more you learn about it. Then you start noticing things that you haven’t noticed before. When they step into the world of men’s wear, they will realize how important clothing is to them. People who pass you by may just notice the clothing you wear and nothing more.
You tell people who you are by your appearance and by what you do. If you combine suit, tie, and shirt, you give a message to your onlookers.
You are now ready to find a tailor having built your foundation about men’s wear.
Care should be exercised when looking for a good tailor. When men choose their tailors, they don’t exercise care. When they find the first one, they tend to stick with them because they don’t know of a better option. With this, combined with the lack of knowledge men have about the world of suit and fashion, the tailor can be receiving praises from his clients because they are clueless about the world of suits and fashion. So, even if someone calls himself a tailor, then don’t assume that they know about men’s style and make the proper assessment on its fitting.
A well-dressed man can be the source of recommendations for a good tailor. if they constantly wear great looking suits, then you can ask them which tailor they are suing for their suits. It will take a good man’s recommendation to find a good tailor for yourself. You can also ask women for recommendation. If you will ask women for recommendations, you need to be careful since clothes fit on men fit differently on how they fit on women.
