You're welcome.

I have some relatives who live not too far from Jacksonville, FL and I think they'd get a kick out of your screen name.

Hey guys I just got measured for my first suit. Is there anything I should be aware of when I do the first fitting?

Frank is pretty good about catching fit issues, but it still can't hurt to learn as much as you can from the Tailor's thread so you have an opinion on fit yourself when you try it on the first time.

Yes, shut up and let the tailor do his job! First fitting is for the tailor, not you to screw up.

^^Sometimes the tailor screws up too, I know that.

The point is, there is more chance for a fuck up with bespoke . If you don't know how the garment should fit, you shouldn't go for bespoke.
post #776 of 1158
The problem is customers think they know more than tailors and tailor's fuck ups are actually the customers. I think if people want to be giving so much input into bespoke they should make their own suits.

If "you" don't know how a garment should fit you shouldn't go for bespoke? This makes no sense to me. You're going to a tailor because they know how a garment should fit.

A tailor may know how it should fit but it's one thing to know and another thing to actually deliver it. Tailors try to sell their stuff, they have to make money too and some will take advantage of noobs. So, if you can't spot some of the issues, you maybe taken advantage of and unles you are paying top dollars to a tailor who is ready to recut if you are not satisfied, there is more room for a fuck up if you are new to custom clothing. And then there are some tailors who can't fix the issue even if you can pin point them. I know, I've used couple of them.

+1 the whole point of bespoke is to be fitted by a professional, however having some knowledge can help you settle on a solid tailor

It also helps that one likes the tailor's "house Style" A garment could well fit perfectly but not really relect the client's
taste. I have had only had two bespoke projects, one in Spain and one in South America. years ago. Both were unsuccesful, not
beause they didn't fit properly. But because they reflected the then local taste. In both instances I wanted them to copy
my Ivy trad Brooks Brothers jacket style. What I got was an "interpretation". I've seen examples of of the work of
some of the favored bespoke tailors in Style Forum, at least one of whom I would never consider because my
taste does not conform to their "house style"

I'm not completely disagreeing with Forex, but I think the internet may be the worst thing for bespoke tailors, cause now everyone is an expert. And an anonymous expert at that.
