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.
One thing that has contributed to this difficulty in finding the right tailor is that there are too many of them offering these services. A good tailor is something that is difficult to find from among the many tailors doing business around you. 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. Don’t just wait for anyone to give you the right one.
It is good for you to be educated about the foundations of men’s style before talking to a tailor. Men would naturally not want to sit down for hours and read about men’s wear. There are various reasons why men don’t want to sit down and learn about men’s wear. But the more they will get interested in it, if they start learning about it. Then you start noticing things that you haven’t noticed before. If you know the foundations of men’s ear, then you begin to understand its importance. People who pass you by may just notice the clothing you wear and nothing more.
It is by your appearance and what you do in the world that people will know who you are. Onlookers will see your message if you combine suit, tie, and shirt.
You are now ready to find a tailor having built your foundation about men’s wear.
You should be careful when you look for the right tailor. When men choose their tailors, they don’t exercise care. Because they lack a better option, they stick with the first tailor that they find. Tailors can receive praises from clients who know nothing about the world of suit and fashion. Don’t assume that just because they call themselves a tailor that it means they know about men’s style and make the proper assessment on its fitting.
One of the ways of finding a good tailor is to ask for recommendations from people who dress well. If you find them wearing great looking suits, then you can ask them where they had the suit made. It will take a good man’s recommendation to find a good tailor for yourself. Women can also be asked for recommendation. But you need to be careful asking the women because the way clothes fit on men are different on how clothes fit on women.
