How long does it take to make a bespoke suit?

How long does it take to make a bespoke suit?

If you haven't had a suit professionally made for you before then you might not be aware of what a bespoke suit is. Most people head to a local store when they need a suit, whether for work or for a more formal event and have no qualms about trying to find one off the rack that will meet their needs. However, men who are in the know and want to make sure that they look their best at all times will understand that spending the time and money to have a bespoke suit professionally made is worth the investment. Working with a talented and reputable tailor will ensure that your custom-made bespoke suit fits your body type exactly and flatters you in a way that a store-bought suit never will.

Considerations
When you make the decision to have a bespoke suit made, you are entering into a commitment. You'll want to make sure to do your research before meeting with your tailor, as there will be a number of questions that they will ask you about your suit, namely about the fit, wear, and use of it. You'll have to decide on the vents in the back of the jacket, working vs. show buttons, and even besom vs. flap pockets. You can cut down the amount of time that the planning will take if you study up on these terms before going to the tailor and have an idea in your head about what you want your suit to look like.

Meetings
You'll have to meet with your tailor for at least two fittings, possibly more, to ensure that the suit fits you perfectly. These meetings can take a while, and you'll want to wear dress shoes and a dress shirt to verify that the pants and jacket fit the way they are supposed to. After you have been pinned, turned around, and pinned again, you'll leave and let the tailor work their magic. A good bespoke suit takes time to make, however, so you'll need to be patient.

The time that it takes to make a bespoke suit depends on a number of factors, including how busy the tailor is and how many fittings you have. Obviously, a tailor who is in high demand will take longer to get your suit finished, but remember: you can speed along the process by being prepared for your first meeting with them.
