A suit can be elegant, graceful, chic or formal, but for first-time wearers it can be a daunting task to choose a tailored or branded ready-to-wear. Let's take a look at what we should choose as a beginner from different points of view.
First notice shape of body
If body type is not standard, such as being too fat, too thin, too tall, or too short, as is obvious, it is recommended that you select setting directly. Because wearing a fitted suit is most important and safest.
Usually, when sewing, I pay more attention to quality fabrics. If you don't know whether to choose ready-to-wear or made-to-measure, you can compare them by material. If you want a high-quality and perfect visual effect, fabric should be chosen from at least wool. Most ready-to-wear is made from blended fabrics, ready-to-wear wool suits can be more expensive, and there are few other styles to choose from. If you are not in a hurry, it is recommended to choose a personalized one. In addition to fabric, you can also choose craftsmanship. The price is similar or even lower than that of woolen clothes.

If budget is relatively small, ready-to-wear is recommended, 2000-3000 are optional and it is very cost effective to find a custom shop in this range for events. With a budget of 4000~6000, you can go to a custom shop to select fabrics with good characteristics for custom tailoring. More than 8000, whether it's version or fabric, customization is definitely a good choice. If you have a good budget, you can choose high-end handmade hemp kit.
Time to get dressed
If time is particularly limited, you may want to choose ready-made clothing only if you need to use it in a day or two. If you want to customize, you must reserve at least one month as a construction period. After all, customization is not a shopping mall. You must calm down and enjoy every process and detail of customization, so that clothes can really be endowed with their own character and temperament.
Frequency of use
If you will be using suits frequently in future, it is recommended that you customize a suit that can be used for commuting, meetings, and weddings. If you only need to wear it once for a particular occasion, it is better to choose a ready-made option.
