Bespoke vs. Made-to-Measure vs. Ready-to-Wear Suit: What is the Difference?

You’ve got an important event coming up and you want to look sharp. The only thing you need now is to dress the part. When it comes to formalwear, you have a few options: bespoke tailoring, made-to-measure, or ready-to-wear.

Here’s a closer look at the differences between these options so you can make an informed decision and dress your very best:

What is Bespoke Tailoring?

If you want to go full custom, you need bespoke tailoring. Bespoke suits are made from scratch using an individual’s specific measurements. What’s more, you get to make all the design selections, choosing the fabrics, customizations, styles and colors. You also have control over the small details like the jacket lining that make your suit one-of-a-kind.

What are Made-to-Measure Suits?

Made-to-measure suits have some level of standardization in that you aren’t designing the suit from scratch. However, each piece you choose is made to fit your body, giving you a somewhat tailored look and feel.

What are Ready-to-Wear Suits?

If you’ve ever bought a suit off the rack, then you’ve purchased ready-to-wear suit. These options are typically favored when you have last minute needs and aren’t concerned whether the suit fits you like a glove.

Benefits of Bespoke Tailoring

Bespoke suits are increasingly a favorite choice among sophisticated men and women who want a suit that is truly their own.

It’s no secret that bespoke suits are more expensive than off the rack suits. But the value in having a suit that’s custom tailored and reflects your individual style is well worth it. It’s a symbol of luxury and a reflection of fine craftsmanship that ensures all eyes will be on you.

Plus, when you step out in a suit that was made for you, your self-confidence soars along with the number of heads you’ll turn. It’s a completely different look and feel that every man or woman deserves to experience, so take pride in treating yourself.
