First of all, there is a concept that needs to be clarified, difference between advanced customization, private order, and advanced ready-to-wear.
The difference between advanced customization and private customization is reflected in "order" and "order". The first is to customize clothes that fully meet his requirements, and second is to place an order based on original and modify. High-end ready-to-wear is another concept. Ready-to-wear is what we commonly refer to as Fashion Week. English ready to wear. The relationship between two is probably a "low-level version" of advanced Pre-order ready-to-wear is a promotional line, clothing that can be purchased directly from store.
The concept of advanced personalization applies not only to fashion design and clothing customization, but also has a wider range of connotations. Generally speaking, advanced customization means higher, stricter, and more perfect production and processed products than conventional standards, which are often time-consuming, labor-intensive, and very expensive. Therefore, today we will only talk about difference between advanced custom suits and ready-made suits, and we will not dwell on custom designer suits.
Gao Ding is also divided into three, six and nine classes, and clothes in my eyes are considered a bottomless pit. . So, two haute couture bars that I know
The first type is clothes made to order by tailors. China has even more formal wear. In China, stores that can be called "advanced customization" are mainly located in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. A full dress set starts at around 5000 and more famous ones start at 7000 with money added depending on fabric and whether or not you're wearing a vest. The advantage of this setup is that it is decent and comfortable, so you don't have to worry about foreign brand version not being suitable for Chinese. Secondly, it is a high-end designer brand.
Regardless of whether extended customization or private customization has been popular in China in recent years, most accurate positioning is actually custom clothing class.
clothing to order
Compared to coldness of extended personalization, personalized clothing is more down to earth. This is also business model of most clothing stores and is also very popular in fashion industry. The biggest advantage of suit customization is reflected in word "customization", "customization is based on your personal body shape, size, habits, working conditions and jobs. In fashion design, consumers want to express themselves through clothing to greatest extent possible. "Personality" and "Ego".
Ready-to-wear clothing refers to mass-produced ready-to-wear clothing according to certain specifications and size standards. This concept arose in connection with clothes made to order or made by oneself. It is also clothing with widest contact with consumers. Generally speaking, ready-to-wear has lowest artistic content of design, and level of design of different brands is uneven, without overly dominant clothing symbolism and cultural genes.
So, besides difference in definition, what is difference in a particular process?
The formation of a beautiful outer shape of costume. A good suit is subject to strict requirements in terms of workmanship: production of a suit requires about four main processes and more than 300 minor ones. The difference in craftsmanship directly determines quality of costume.
Among them, three processes of full linen lining, half linen lining, and fusible lining can almost be used as a hard distinction between suit classes.
Fused liner: The most common modern suit process, front of suit uses a special adhesive liner invented with modern technology, and fuses liner and face fabric of suit through machine hot pressing. This is low quality suit technology. Advantages: suitable for industrial machine production, low cost. Disadvantages: Due to gradual loss of viscosity of interlining, service life is much lower than traditional stitched interlinings, and it is prone to blistering and other phenomena. Most popular domestic suit and ready-to-wear brands use this process.
Full linen interlining: Combining traditional and modern technologies, front of suit is first covered with a layer of fusible interlining, and then traditional interlining is applied to upper half, which not only preserves economy of industrial production, but also absorbs some of advantages of traditional craftsmanship. This is a middle class suit. In order to maintain a high profit ratio, it is used by many international well-known menswear manufacturers.
Full linen lining: most traditional process for making a suit. The front of suit uses an old-fashioned non-adhesive pad, and pad and front of suit are sewn together with a needle and thread. This is advanced technology of suit. Advantages: The lining stitching process has a very long service life, much higher than wear resistance of facial tissue, without problems for decades, shape is flexible and thorough, and shaping effect is good. Disadvantages: This is difficult to do and some links must be managed manually, such as shaping. Of course, best hemp lining technology has to be handmade.
Now let's talk about typical characteristics of tailored suits: "Really open sleeves and open eyes"
Why should sleeves of a tailored suit be "really open and open"?
One detail that many people have discovered after watching a tailored suit: Why does loop on cuff of a tailored suit have to be a live sleeve fork that can be untied? Tailor-made suits not only require real open sleeves and open eyes, but handmade buttonholes with fine workmanship. A few days ago, a friend told me that purpose of real sleeves was to untie them so they could roll up their sleeves to work, and I was drunk too.
Usually worn with first button on cuffs open to reveal a handmade signature. The number and arrangement of buttons can also be freely chosen to emphasize individuality. A suit without boutonnieres on cuffs is like a Mercedes-Benz without power windows: no matter how luxurious it looks, it loses its connotation, which is useless. Fake sleeves are a product of industrialization, and advances in production methods always introduce subtractions into manufacturing process, but custom-made suits do not. This cuff detail is considered by many to be "one of hallmarks of a quality suit." The sleeves are really open and eyes are open. Unbuttoning and rolling up sleeves make the wearing status more accessible.
Another nice touch worth mentioning is Kissi ngButtons on cuffs. If you find overlapping and sewn-on buttons on cuffs of a suit you just bought, don't complain that you spent money on defective items, this is just an interesting cultural identification of suits.
Right and Right Why are tailor-made suits always "right and right"? Anyone who has studied costumes knows that a good quality costume must comply with rules and checks. Many people are at stage of knowing only one of "couples and couples", but not knowing other. Matching strips and grids is time consuming and requires a lot of materials. From this small detail, we can see level of craftsmanship and sincerity of the brand.
Keyholes with a manual key. Why are all bespoke suits "hand-closed"?
Behind exquisite handmade keyhole button technology and live sleeve fork technology are such concepts as "Milanese eye", "hand knitting", "chicken claw button"
A number of details are more realistic for thinness of buttonholes, so it's common sense in haute couture industry that a well-tailored suit should have real buttonholes.
Price Difference: Haute Couture: All kinds of top-level main and auxiliary materials are well-known, and individual craftsmanship is reflected in: fabric color matching design, customized lining, unique number for each suit, exclusive embroidered symbols to highlight. individual dignity, even buttons are made of imported German Yongni buttons, horn buttons, crystal buttons, etc., and all main and auxiliary materials are known. Exclusive design, its design, process, materials and other costs are extremely high. The high-quality main and auxiliary materials retain their shape well, and elite suit set can be worn normally for 5-10 years without deformation. Ordinary ready-made garments: Ordinary fabrics are usually used, color fastness and heat shrinkage cannot be guaranteed, and shape retention is poor. The life of a suit is usually 2 years before it can be properly styled.
The last point is difference in materials: Couture insists on using only high-quality and luxurious fabrics, comfortable and elegant, elegant and harmonious in style, discreet and stable in color, fresh and natural in texture, and create a unique and noble you. The products are aimed at high-end customers, using exquisite materials, high-quality fabrics with fine workmanship and stable performance, highlighting the individuality. A limited number of custom handmade materials or buyout materials are often used to prevent custom clothing from being cloned to ensure guest custom clothing is unique. Common ready-to-wear garments: In order to reduce costs, more common fabrics and accessories are used to make garments, or some substitutes are used to make them.
