What made you decide to get fitted for custom clothing?
I decided to get fitted for custom clothing at the advice of a friend who always looked so well dressed. His suits were impeccable and always had great flair and style.
How would you describe your experience of the consultation (being fitted and customizing your clothing)?
The consultation for fit and customization of my new suits was wonderful. It happened at my office: so convenient. I loved being able to sit down with several books of fabric samples and linings. The absolute best part was then going through every stylistic aspect of my new suit. Being able to pick out the specific stitching, pocket and collar styles along with the complete customization of my choices led to a perfect fit.
What’s your favorite thing(s) about your new clothing?
I like little details about my new suits like accent buttonholes, ticket pocket, and quite frankly, having my name on the inside of the jacket!
What would you share with somebody who is hesitant to schedule a fitting?
Anyone who is hesitant should know this is the most fun I’ve ever had shopping for clothes. The fit will be right. The clothes will look the way you want them to look. Your family, friends, and co-workers will compliment you.
How has your custom clothing shown its value and/or contributed to your success?
In the insurance world, I often dress casually for most days at the office. When I upgrade the game and wear a suit from The Sharpsuiter, I immediately gain additional credibility and respect. Furthermore, a side gig of mine is teaching insurance classes to other agents in Colorado and across the western United States. When I show up to the classroom in one of these suits, people sit up and pay attention from the first minute of class.
