In an online tailor shop what options do there need to be?
I have been looking at suitopia.com, zentailor.net, ginotailor.com and more. These all fine online tailorshops, but when you look in a the different websites they are all offering mostly the same basic boring classic option. Nothing extra, nothing interesting that tells me they are special and I always feel if I buy from them, it's a bland/boring suit I receive.
I'm hoping maybe some of you can tell me some interesting option you have seen in the real world or in an online shop, that more online tailors should try out.
Maybe were lucky and they read this ;-)

Thanx,

The most interesting option would be the option of making a suit that fits.

None - specials should be reserved to a tailor yoju meet - to try specifying sch on line will only end in tears.

One the other I would never touch this option.

What I rarely see online are the trouser options I want:
Side adjusters
Forward pleats

And most likely these places won't know how to cut trousers for forward pleats so I wouldn't bother asking. I'm sure they would give me something I wouldn't be happy with. MyTailor seems to be the only place that gives me the options I'd want, but they don't sell suits over the internet.

Another thing I look for is a website that doesn't steal pictures from other sites. Zentailor took some pictures from MyTailor. It's important that they show their own work.

Any options you want. No boundries to your imagination. Virtual online shops should always have virtual tailors and virtual options.

This. Options are nice but fit is the most important thing, and maybe a good selection of fabrics. Many options above the essentials are just gimmicks anyway.
