Just know that Bespoke means picking every detail, from number and style of buttons on the cuff to the colour of the felt under the collar and everything in between. It sounds to me like you're not in the right place (both in skill and inclination) to embark on a 3 month journey to having your "dream suit" realised.
Stick with Off-the-Rack for now.
Made-to-measure means that they take the basic suit and build it to your exact measurements. This is great if your clothes are difficult to fit. If they fit nice with a little tailoring then there's no point.
In this instance you lucked out: Tom Ford is probably one of only a small handful of "designers" who actually uses good quality materials. The same can't be said for 99% of designers. You might take a step up in terms of quality if you went bespoke, but frankly you're not well versed enough to notice or care yet.
A final note: DONT BUY THE MOST EXPENSIVE FABRIC. The most expensive are usually the finest most delicate fabrics. If you wear your suits more than twice per month, then you're buying something that will wear out within a few months. A VERY rough guide would be to pick something between S120 and s150, with no more than 20% cashmere. I can't stress how rough that is, but it should avoid you buying s200 cloth made from a shaved angel that then falls apart in a week.
Absolutely amazing advice !
By the way I put the midnight blue TF on for my wife . She said it looked painted on. I am sure
That a custom would look better but I am relatively happy with these Fords now .
I like a tight fit around the Ribs and it seems to really cut in beautifully .
I'm clearly not knowledgeable to pick out my own custom suit but in the future I will just let the tailor pick it out for me or bring in ome of my fords or guccis and say "do something like this" .
I don't have any other choice and I'm dying to see what a custom feels like !
I've heard that the inside of a custom suit has a sort of a canvas or something that is body forming .... They can even put in a litt bit of muscle to make the chest look just right ? Is this true ?
I don't know but I can't wait to start my adventure .
Thanks for all the help and advice with my new found hobby :-).
