What made you decide to get fitted for custom clothing?
I decided to get fitted for custom clothing since our families are friends, and I was in need of some new suits. I liked the business model of meeting with me at my convenience instead of the necessity of visiting a store.
How would you describe your experience of the consultation (being fitted and customizing your clothing)?
I would describe my experience of the consultation as being relaxed and low-pressure. It was nice to have material samples to peruse and a comfortable setting to be measured for the new suit.
What’s your favorite thing(s) about your new clothing?
My favorite features of my new suits are what I customized to myself: color, material, my name inside the suit jacket, button color, and overall fit. Even though I didn’t sew the suit together I feel like I designed it myself.
What would you share with somebody who is hesitant to schedule a fitting?
For anyone hesitant to schedule a fitting, I would encourage them to move forward and treat yourself to feeling good and looking great with a new custom wardrobe one suit at a time. Men in suits exude confidence and are distinguished in their area of influence.
How has your custom clothing shown its value and/or contributed to your success?
I generate professional appointments often by giving presentations and making a good impression by how I dress and make people feel. Wearing a tailored suit is an important piece of the process for me to grow my clientele.
