Custom suits and tuxedos are becoming a popular choice more and more each wedding season. Since many of our clients are going custom for the first time, they naturally have a lot of questions about all of their options. Since there are so many ways to make your suit or tuxedo unique, we’ll take you through just a few of them here now. We'll follow up with more ways to go custom in our next blog post soon.
Color + Fabric
You can choose between fabrics like wool, cotton, and linen. There are also silk and cashmere blends available too. With fabrics you also have the choice between weight and color. The weight of your fabric might be dependent upon the season of your event. We have traditional colors and patterns like checks and pinstripes, as well as bolder patterns and colors if you really want to make a fashion statement.
Our lining choices are endless. People often opt for classic colored suits and tuxedos and choose a lining that adds subtle flair. This can be either a complimentary bright color, or a pattern.
For your jacket, you can choose from pockets that are straight or slanted, and those with or without a flap. There is also the option of adding a breast pocket. For your pants, you have pocket choices as well. One of our favorites is the watch pocket, or secret pocket as we like to call it, that can be added along the seam.
Monogramming your suit or tux is a client favorite. You can add things like you and your partner's names, your wedding date, or nicknames. You can choose the type of font and if you want the monogramming on the inside your jacket or under the collar.
