Ready-to-wear garments are often “good enough”. However, should you be a more discerning customer, have unusual proportions or just wish to try a more personal fabric, Made-to-Measure makers step in. Be it asymmetrical shoulders, long arms or some other similar fit issues, or simply the wish for a better fitting garment a knowledgeable Made-to-Measure expert shall address this with precision.
Naturally, even if the ready-to-wear garment – a shirt, for example – fits you well, there definitely are certain points that can be improved. The ready-to-wear shirts and suits tend to have some aspects that deviate from the plain average. For example, armholes and waist measurements tend to be be larger than usually needed to accommodate the widest possible amount of personal proportions. For the same reason, cuffs and shoulder widths are almost always rather excessive. All these issues are easily corrected in a Made-to-Measure process.
