Updating your wardrobe does not end at the cash register, let alone at the rack. It is exceedingly rare that a garment will fit perfectly right off the rack. The Suitor is owned and operated by Raad Daniel, a second generation tailor. We consistently emphasize the importance of precise tailoring and a perfect fit. So today we ask not what you can do for your tailor, but what your tailor can do for you.
Fit Evidently the main role of a tailor is to ensure that your clothing fits you the way it should and the way you like it. This exceeds the service at many retailers, most of which do not have a tailor on staff. Clients are often given a hem and sent out the door. However, in our experience, it goes even deeper than this. A good tailor makes a lot of considerations when deciding on the best fit for a client. A tailor:
Helps you choose the optimal shapes and cuts for your body type
Fits your garment(s) to the specific contours of your body while maintaining its proportions and design
Alters the fit to suit your personal style and aesthetic desires
Can remodel a garment to update or change its look entirely
Fabric What better authority on fabrics than the person who works with them all day? A suitor like Raad is there to advise you when choosing the fabric which best suits your needs. A tailor:
Helps you pick a fabric based on your needs (occasion, frequency of wear, desired image)
Can translate an understanding of thread counts and fabric types
Will teach you about what it takes to maintain and preserve the specific fabric
Fashion Do not forget that at the end of the day, clothing is the suitor's work. A tailor will guide you when it comes to crafting a personal style and helping you attain your wardrobe goals. A tailor:
Advises you on how to build your wardrobe for maximum wearability, longevity and style
Can help you coordinate on which items to wear together for various occasions (i.e. to dress an outfit up or down)
Knows what is currently on trend, as well as what will never go out of style
Convinced that you need to befriend a tailor yet? The suitor is the well-dressed man's friend, advisor, and right-hand man. Never underestimate the sheer power of a perfect fit or the increased value of a wardrobe that is well-tailored and carefully maintained.
