You wouldn't spend $500 on a new camera without first checking to make sure it's good quality, so why would you spend even more on a new men's suit and not care about its construction? Find out what separates a good suit from a cheap one.
Interestingly, most men don't think twice about the quality of the suit they're about to purchase and inevitably end up paying for it later on. However, suit construction is all important. In a nutshell, it has to do with the way your suit is stitched and canvassed. In this article we look into stitching.
Beore you purchase your next business suit, ask the shop assistant how the suit is “stitched.” When it comes to stitching, you generally have two options, so if the shop assistant looks at you in bewilderment, it's probably better to walk away. Here's your choices:
This is the type of stitching you'll find on most off-the-rack suits as well as inexpensive made to measure suits. Machine stitching is faster as it does not require the finely-tuned skills of a master tailor to create an internal structure to complement the unique form of your body. So while it's a much cheaper option, it's less accurate and less likely to produce a good shape for you.
This type of stitching is found only in good quality men's suits. A web of stitches is used to build curvature into the chest in places where a machine stitched suit would just hang flat.
This greatly improves the shape, fit and silhouette of the suit. Handcraft top stitching on the lapel, jacket edges and pockets can often be found, creating an elegant touch.
Whether you looking for the luxury of a custom made bespoke suit or more interested in the economy of a made to measure suit, the men of Montagio are ready to help you out. When you book your personal styling session, they'll help you pick the best fabric, colour, stitching and other factors so you'll be guaranteed to get a suit that makes you look good and feel great.
