1. You Get a Better Fit
The core goal of custom made clothing is to flatter the shape of your body and provide you with ease and comfort. These clothes will allow you to highlight your best physical features and divert attention from the less flattering ones.
2. Quality Materials are Used
Ready-to-buy pieces usually place quality lower on the priority list. Mass production with industrial machines are more cost effective, sometimes sacrificing quality levels. Custom tailors and seamstresses value precision and quality. They area able to make adjustments on the spot, look for inconsistencies, and give you recommendations.
3. You can Highlight your Personal Style
Ready-to-buy pieces also have a limit on how much of "you" can be reflected. Custom made clothing allows you to pick every aspect, design, and feel of the piece to ensure the style is all you. You have the ability to pick colors, textures, styles, combinations, etc. all to showcase your style.
4. There is Less Time & Effort
Being able to cut down on time and effort wasted shopping for clothing is priceless and custom pieces do just that. Instead of spending time to look through all the racks of clothing in a store and trying things on to figure out the fit, you have a one stop shop at a tailor or sewing shop. You know what you want, they will create the piece to your fit, and give you a time frame for the completion of the piece. No endless searching, no sold out items, and now unavailable items.
5. Your Clothes Last Longer
Custom pieces are made and meant to outlast ready-to-buy pieces. The materials and overall quality create fewer problems to face in the future and you avoid paying for lots of repairs. Slight adjustments over time can be made very easily by a skilled tailor and/or seamstress.
