Do you find that when you buy a shirt that fits your neck, the body is humongous? This is quite common. You can have funky darts sewn into the back by a seamstress…or try custom and get the exact taper you desire.
Can you imagine Robbie trying to find a good fitting pair of dress pants, dress shirt, or God forbid, a suit?
Are your pants typically too tight through your seat? If you are wearing pleats, do your pants fit everywhere but your pleats bellow out? This is caused by your butt being a little larger than the rest of your body…usually from some extensive exercise routine that has resulted in large glutes or cheeks. Riding a bike, doing squats, running all can result in this. Sometimes, this occurs just because you live well and enjoy your food!
Regardless, there is no reason for your pants to not fit properly. A custom tailor can measure you and have a pair of pants made with a larger seat so that your pleats don’t bellow out…or if you are wearing flat-front pants, your pants are comfortable.
Similarly, my athletic customers typically have necks that are larger proportionately than their torsos, resulting in a store-bought shirt having lots of extra fabric in the mid-waist area. Other commonly-found issues with athletes, are shoulders that “slope”, caused by larger trapezius muscles. Sloped shoulders will result in excess bagginess in the front and back panels near one’s armpits.
A custom shirt, of course, will eliminate these fabric excesses, provide a collar that actually fits, and even address larger than normal biceps or “guns”. Every aspect of your shirt can be tailored to suit your preferences and physique.
A weight lifter oftentimes will find that a suit jacket will break or “pop” at his pecs. This is almost impossible to remedy with after-market alterations but can be remedied if the jacket is constructed with a little extra fabric in the front chest panels. Again, your custom tailor will design a jacket that will fit your unique physique and you’ll look like a million bucks!
