So you know of or you’ve heard of someone who has purchased or someone who is in the business of selling custom tailored made designer business suits from another country. So where do you begin?
First, you must determine whether or not a custom suit is of great value to you. If you’re someone who wears a suit once or twice a year, then having a tailored-made-to-fit designer business suit may not be of great value to you. But if investing several hundred dollars to enhance your wardrobe, which will ultimately enhance your image, is appealing to you, then a well-constructed custom made suit is well worth its weight in gold.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that when you Google custom made suits or any other keywords related to custom made clothing, you will receive more options than you would know what to do with them. Being that the business of custom made suits is generally passed around via word of mouth, I strongly encourage that you begin with the person whom you personally know who has experience buying custom made suits online. If not, then due diligence in researching the manufacturer is very important in securing a well-made custom suit. custom suits nj
Personally, I have purchased quite a few custom suits from other countries including South Korea, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Why not the United States? Well, because buying a custom suit in the US is quite costly, and when you’re a young enlisted US Marine you’re not exactly operating with an unlimited supply of finances. By ordering custom suits from the aforementioned countries, I saved thousands without sacrificing quality in materials or craftsmanship. More importantly, no one could tell the difference.
If you are working with a limited budget, and you’re unable to travel to any of these countries, ordering online is the next best thing, if not better. Thailand is my first choice followed by Hong Kong and South Korea as the best places to buy a suit. Primarily because it’s more cost-effective. Once you decide where you would like to have your suit made, then you must decide which tailor.
A great resource to find a tailor is Alibaba.com. Alibaba.com is a website that connects international exporters with importers. Even if you’re a customer in search of a product, you will be able to find manufacturers who are willing to sell to you. Selecting a tailor can be tricky, and the best advice I can give you is to contact the tailor, whether via email or telephone, and ask all the questions you can think of.

Once you’ve selected a tailor, you want to browse through their catalog and select a style of cut for your suit. If there isn’t a style or cut within their catalog that interests you, you may want to send a picture of the style of suit that you better prefer. There are many instances where the tailor are unable to place their entire catalog online, and if you were to submit a picture and name of the style and or designer of your desired look, more times than not they will be able to accommodate your request.
