What Is Modern Style Clothing ?

In a fashion industry filled with depersonalized shelves and racks, you likely haven’t even considered custom clothes before. After all, many businesses focus solely on fast fashion.

However, tailor-made clothing can make a huge difference in your personal style, and your wallet. It’s just a matter of finding the perfect custom clothing provider.

Fortunately, Q Clothier has a long history of designing custom-made clothing, and knows exactly why custom clothing is a great long-term investment.

Why Choose Custom Clothing?

If you’ve never worn custom clothing before, you might be wondering why custom design is worth the investment. Luckily, there are a plethora of reasons why you should choose customized clothing.

Whether you’re concerned about achieving the perfect fit through high-quality materials, or why tailor-made will benefit you long-term, we’ve gathered all the top reasons to choose custom clothing:

1. The Perfect Fit

The perfect fit serves a dual purpose, as it not only plays a role in how you look, but also your comfort.

  • Looking your best. Initially, fit matters because it’s essential for looking your best. People, especially professionals, will notice the quality of your fit. With a good fit, you’ll appear more attractive, competent, and confident.

    Ultimately, these benefits can make it easier for you to get your foot in the door during an interview, first date, or any other important occasion.

  • Maximum comfort. Fit also matters because it provides you with far more comfort than other apparel will. Your custom clothing will match all of your measurements, meaning you don’t have to experience anything that’s too loose or too tight.

    This is especially important when you need to wear your clothes at work, as increased comfort will make it far easier to focus for 8+ hours.

  • Better Health. Similar to the last point, having properly fitted clothing will provide health benefits over time. From improved posture to breathing easy, the perfect fit will prevent your clothes from doing damage to your body.

How is the Perfect Fit Achieved?

The perfect fit is achieved through tailoring to your exact measurements, while also having the knowledge to ensure ample ease and comfort. Striking the right balance is key, as excessive tightness or looseness will both have detrimental effects.

Therefore, to achieve the perfect fit your tailor will take any measurements required for the custom apparel. These measurements may include:

  • Waist
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Inseam
  • Chest
  • Neck
  • Sleeve
  • Arm length
  • Bust
  • Back Waist Length

Before your measurements are taken, it’s important to understand your body type. Are you slim fit? Do you have wide shoulders? All of these are vital factors you should discuss with your tailor.

Remember, you should dress for the body you have now, rather than try to anticipate changes down the line. As exciting as your new weight loss plan might be, those results are ultimately uncertain. Focus on providing maximum comfort for yourself today.

2. High-Quality Materials

Materials also play a crucial role in the comfort and lifespan of your clothing, whether it’s a t-shirt or all-season outerwear.

Much of the other apparel made by the fashion industry is produced as cheaply as possible. Companies prioritize cost-effective mass production, meaning that clothes are comprised of inexpensive material, and sewn by industrial machines. Though inexpensive on the shelf, these garments often have poor fit, texture, and durability.

Conversely, tailor-made custom clothing pays meticulous attention to detail. Custom tailors prioritize precision, rather than cost-effectiveness, allowing them to meet your exact needs. You’ll have access to whatever materials suit you, and your tailor will have the skills and resources to utilize the most optimal options.

For instance, your tailor will know the characteristics of various weaves, and which ones will give you the best constructions. On top of making the right fabric choice, choosing the right weave will enhance breathability and reduce wrinkling.

Ultimately, all of the high-quality materials used to make your customized clothing will provide you with many benefits. Your clothes will:

  • Look nicer
  • Fit better
  • Last longer

Examples of High-Quality Materials

Custom clothing allows you to choose whatever materials you want, but if you want to have some examples of high-quality materials, look no further.

Here are some examples of high-quality fabrics that you’ll have access to with custom clothing:

  • Cotton
  • Wool
  • Silk
  • Leather
  • Linen
  • Denim
  • Blended Fabrics

Having these options allows you to craft clothing that perfectly suits your lifestyle and environment. You can create the perfect winter business attire or the perfect summer date outfit.

3. Matching Your Personal Style

Custom clothing is all about you, so one of the primary goals of any custom apparel will always be to match your personal style. Here are examples of components you have control over when designing your custom clothing:

  • Shape. If you prefer slim fit or any other defined outfit shapes, you’ll have those options when creating custom clothing.
  • Length. When designing a coat or trousers, you can choose the optimal length that aligns with your style and comfort.
  • Texture. Depending on your fabric and weave of choice, you can achieve a desired texture with your clothing.
  • Color. You have the option of choosing any color you want, whether because of the color’s meaning, or simply because it’s your favorite color.
  • Collar Design. Whether you choose a conventional point, spread, button-down, or other unique options, your collar choice will also be an integral part of your style.
  • Cuff shape. You can experiment with squared-off or rounded corners for a more masculine or feminine appearance.
  • Pocket shape. Aside from the obvious benefit of actually having pockets, you’ll also have the freedom to choose how many, and what shape you prefer.
  • Matching stripes. Utilize stripes for a bolder or more stylized touch to your outfits.

Ultimately, custom clothing gives you the opportunity to express yourself fully, while still looking good in the process.

Plus, if you don’t know what style suits you, your tailor has all the professional knowledge needed to have you looking great, and feeling confident.

4. Personalized From Start To Finish

Unlike regular clothes shopping, designing your own custom clothing is far from a frustrating process.

Your tailor will work with you to design your clothing as simply or as intricately as you’d like. This allows you to add your personalized touches from start to finish. Even near the end of the process, you can feel comfortable adding extra details, personalized touches, and important critiques.

As each garment is crafted one at a time, there is no limitation on the detail you can pursue.

5. Save Time And Effort

You might think shopping for off-the-rack clothing is faster and easier, but this isn’t always the case. Custom clothing can save you time and effort in so many ways. For instance:

  • No time wasted. Nothing is worse than showing up to a clothing store, only to face disappointments like "sold out" or "unavailable." If you have to make time between a busy work schedule and personal life, seeing that the one outfit you like isn’t in your size feels like time wasted.

    With custom clothing, any time you put into your clothing design won’t be time wasted. You’ll know that any effort you put into the process will be rewarded later.

  • Works with your schedule. Planning a trip to the clothing store can be difficult when you have a busy schedule, especially when you need to visit multiple stores to find what you need.

    Custom clothing tailors work around your schedule, allowing you to plan fittings and business consultations whenever it suits you.

  • Clear timeline. Your tailor will provide a timeline on when you can expect measurements, fittings, and completed garments. In this way, you’ll never be in the dark about when you’ll receive your new clothes.
  • Professional help. Custom tailors are experts in their craft, so you can trust them to give you a quality outcome. Therefore, feel free to be as involved or hands-off as you want during the process of custom clothing creation. This takes the pressure of looking your best off your shoulders.

6. Great Long-Term Investment

On average, custom clothing lasts 3x longer than other apparel. While the average t-shirt might last 2 years, you can expect your custom clothing to last well over 6 years.

The first and most obvious advantage of this is straightforward. Your clothes will last longer, so you will have to go shopping less. You can enjoy your stylish and well-fitted clothing to the fullest, without worrying about everything falling apart at the seams.

Another benefit you’ll receive is monetary. Though custom clothing has a higher upfront price tag, it can easily be a better investment over time. Spread out over several years, you might find yourself spending far more on several ill-fitted, throwaway outfits than you would on your stylish and reliable custom clothes.

What Increases Clothing Lifespan?

The weave, fabric choice, stitching, and overall quality of clothing can increase its lifespan. If you’re concerned about longevity, here are some examples of how your tailor can increase the lifespan of your custom clothes:

  • Add French seams or gussets
  • Choose thicker and more durable fabrics
  • Blend fabrics for maximum durability

Additionally, you can also extend the lifespan of your clothing by:

  • Follow washing and care instructions given by your tailor
  • Avoid sun damage and wrinkles by storing your custom clothes properly
  • Avoid certain perfumes and hairspray products that can damage clothing
  • Take your clothing in for repair services when needed.
