We’re celebrating March Madness, the NCAA basketball tournament because fashion and health aren’t mutually exclusive… nor are suits exclusively for men.
A bespoke suit should enhance what women and men sculpt in the gym and on the hardwood courts. #equality
Our finely tailored clothes are like trophies, rewards for dedication to training, competition, and good sportsmanship. Muscular bodies require special attention to back and shoulder measurements that department store designers don’t understand. We know you need customized coats that don’t strain at the biceps. Got gorgeous calves? We can make room for them too.
Is your character the same on and off the court?Great style is a seamless reflection of your personality.
Integrity is 85 percent of your look, so here are a few tips for the final 15 percent:
Don’t lengthen your profile, especially if you’re slim.
Avoid vertical stripes as the pattern of your suit and shirts. It can be one or the other. A pinstripe suit with a light-colored checkered (gingham) shirt or solid shirt pairs best. Not wearing a jacket? Tall people can still wear vertical stripe dress shirts sans jacket. (Read how a bespoke dress shirt can impact your future and then customize one in 5 minutes.)
Typically solid suits look good, but don’t avoid patterns or textures.
For some, the same color jacket and trousers can look like too much fabric. Color block, or try textured or patterned fabric like faint pinstripes. Weaves like a subtle herringbone add distinction. We have a large selection of fabric for you to fully customize your suit.
Double-breasted jackets are A-OK!
Thinner people find this particular style adds a healthy amount of width to the torso. Why not exercise the option to wear vests? Layers add ‘visual’ weight to lean frames. Women shouldn’t overlook vests.
Tall with a fuller / more muscular chest? You may pass on the double-breasted look, vests, and layering.
Know your true measurements.
You want a shirt and waist fit well to your torso. Prevent extra fabric from bunching up when you tuck in your shirt. Size matters. Expose less shirt cuff, so arms appear slightly shorter. Order your bespoke shirt in minutes.
Cuff your trouser hems.
An appropriate break — the length where your trousers / pants meet your shoes — will reveal your true height, not an melodramatic one.
