Custom Suits – Portland’s Tax Free Shopping

Custom Suits Portland - Business Man Body

Men are able to project success, taste, sophistication, and status with quality custom suits. Portland clothiers are nationally known because of the tax free shopping benefits, and the high standards for perfect fittings. Even though the realm of custom tailoring can sometimes be a little intimidating for some, the reality is that every single man should have at least one quality custom suit. At the office, restaurant, or dinner party a custom crafted suit will never fail you. Surprisingly, many shop for designer name brands, when they can in fact purchase quality, highly crafted custom suits designed to flatter their shapes. This article will explain some of the factors you need to take into account when you are choosing custom suits.

1. Think long term

Trends usually have a six-to-eighteen-month shelf life, make sure to shop wisely. Make sure that you feel completely comfortable, your only priority is your comfort and not the salesman’s commission.

2. Find a reputable tailor

Ask around and inquire about references for reliable tailors.

3. Choose your fabric

Since you are not paying for the designer name, definitely opt for the higher quality grades. Any grade of 110 or higher is guaranteed to provide a stunning and durable suit. The higher grade is synonymous with better quality. The three kinds of woolen fabrics include tweed, flannel, and worsted. Tweed is the warmest and most popular for outdoors and colder weather. Flannel is lighter than tweed and serves as the ideal fabric for intermediate temperatures. Worsted is the most common of woolen fabrics because it has the perfect weight, it is best for summers and warmer climates. Other fabrics include linen and polyester, however the linen crease is easily ruined resulting in a messy look. And polyester is definitely a huge no, unless you wish to look like you belong in a seventies music band.

4. Choose your colors

Standard blue is excellent for business, lunches, dinners, or casual parties. It can be worn with black or brown shoes and any neutral colored shirt. The classic gray is the Switzerland of suits, it is never controversial and it blends wonderfully with any pattern and any skin tone. And the favorite perennial classic, black is perfect for the Oscars or a wedding. If you only own one suit, this is it. You can even be buried in it.

5. Determine the style

Two-button or three-button? Double-breasted or single? This depends on the current styles, ask the tailor what will look best on your. Whenever possible stick with the classic suit, it won’t have an expiration date. If there is a particular style that has caught your attention take the magazine to your tailor, he will know what the best fabric will be to reproduce the suit.Listen to advice regarding the cut for your specific build and physique.

6. Your budget

Determine how much you are willing to invest in your image. When  chosen wisely, custom crafted suits are more economical than designer brand names. If you are on a budget, look at the custom suits Portland stores to find your best deal.
