It was a simple thing looking for the right tailor in the past. If your father had a good tailor, then you can go to that tailor, or you can ask someone selling men’s suits to recommend a good tailor to you. But these things are getting more difficult these days.
The reason for this is that today, there are too many tailors offering their services. But even if there are many tailors around, you cannot easily find a good one. Today, asking a salesperson in a men’s wear department would have a difficult time pointing you to the right tailor. So now it becomes your duty to know how to find the right tailor. You don’t need to wait for anybody to give you the right one.
It is good for you to be educated about the foundations of men’s style before talking to a tailor. Men would naturally not want to sit down for hours and read about men’s wear. There could be many reasons why men’s don’t want to learn about men’s wear. But the more they will get interested in it, if they start learning about it. They will start noticing things that they have not noticed before. If you know the world of men’s wear, then you will realize how important clothing is to you. Anyone who looks at you will merely notice the clothes you are wearing and nothing more.
You tell people who you are by your appearance and by what you do. If you combine suit, tie, and shirt, you give a message to your onlookers.
So, if you have built your foundation about men’s wear, you are ready to find a tailor.
You need to exercise care in finding a good tailor. When men choose their tailors, they don’t exercise care. Because they lack a better option, they stick with the first tailor that they find. Tailors can receive praises from clients who know nothing about the world of suit and fashion. Don’t assume that just because they call themselves a tailor that it means they know about men’s style and make the proper assessment on its fitting.
One of the ways of finding a good tailor is to ask for recommendations from people who dress well. Ask them who their tailor is if you find them wearing good sets of suits all the time. It will take a good man’s recommendation to find a good tailor for yourself. Or, ask the women too. But asking women should be done with care because remember that the way clothes fit on men is different from the way clothes fir on women.
