Whilst it is relatively easy to purchase a suit off-the-rack nowadays, the best route really would be to have a suit custom-made. A better fit, fabric selections to choose from, personalised design details; these are just some of the traits that come with the custom experience.

A few tips :

  • Allocate a portion of your budget for at least one suit, if possible two.
  • Consider the accessories to complement your suit such as bow-ties, cummberbunds, pocket squares, cufflinks and the like.
  • Do your research early and meet with the various custom-tailors in town.
  • Ensure that you provide sufficient lead time for fittings and adjustments.

When deciding on fabrics, think of the following :

  • Budget.
  • Location of your wedding and temperature as well as heat and humidity.
  • Mileage i.e. opportunity to use the suit post wedding.
  • How to complement your fiancee’s evening gown.
