Why do bespoke suits and dresses make ready to wear look “pants”?
What is the difference between a Bespoke Suit and the high street one?
Well, there are quite a lot actually.
We have all bought cool suits and dresses from high street stores in the past but nothing beats having a bespoke made-to-measure suit, designed and made just for you. A tailor will take between eight and twenty measurements in order to create and fit your dream suit/dress. It’s more than just a book of swatches waiting in anticipation to be browsed; it’s an opportunity to customise your style, pick your lining, select buttons or zips and create any personal touches.
The true beauty of a bespoke suit is the incredible fit. Few people can pick up a suit off the high street that actually fits all their measurements perfectly. You might be one size around the chest, another on the waist and a third on the hips, and the sleeves are rarely the right length or shape. Even if you have paid for a few alterations here and there after purchase, it would never fit as well as a made-to-measure suit or dress.
There really is no such thing as standard sizing. You may be a ‘stock size’ as far as bust and hip measurements go but it’s 99% guaranteed that there will be some idiosyncrasy in your figure that prevents high street garments from looking flawless. These variations in body shape don’t make us abnormal but are instead what make us simply individual.
If you choose to use Tallulah Tennant’s bespoke Suit, we’ll create your suit or dress with your shape and habits in mind. From the way you stand, the length of your arms to how high up you want the waist band from your hips, everything will be taken into consideration to a create a piece that is bespoke in every sense of the word.
Everyone should buy bespoke if they can afford to but if your budget doesn’t stretch that far Tallulah Tennant will soon be launching an alteration service for ready-to-wear pieces. So if you are based in the North West of England, and need a women’s bespoke suit or a women’s suit altered we are based in central Manchester
