Building a Relationship: Why Having a Trusted Tailor Matters

Throughout our lives, we are sure to find some tailors who understand us and ones who might not. If you have or have had a regular tailor, you will know how important it is to build a relationship with them. Of course, finding the perfect tailor for you might take some time, but when you eventually do, it is undoubtedly worth it. Tailors should not be seen as merchants from whom you purchase your clothes. They are the people who allow you to express yourself and look fantastic. A good tailor will understand exactly what adjustments need to be made to create a unique bespoke masterpiece that is only fit for you. The only way to achieve perfection in your style is by building a relationship with the person who guides you to create it. Today, we are going to discuss the importance of building a relationship with your tailor and the positives it can bring to your daily life.

What do trust and confidence do to help create the perfect bespoke suit?

When you stand to be measured for your bespoke suit, your tailor is not only measuring you for fit but also for style, hobbies, interests, personality, and shape. Over time, a tailor will get to know exactly who you are and what style makes you shine above everyone else. To achieve this takes a high level of trust and confidence in your tailor. Allowing them to take the reins on certain decisions concerning your suit can massively enhance your look. If you want to speed up the process of building a positive relationship with your tailor, give them your trust and confidence. You will not regret it.

Why a tailor needs to know who they are crafting a suit for 

When getting to know your tailor, you may find them asking many questions beyond what suit you want or what particular occasion it is for. Some may find the questions a little too personal, but if you want the perfect bespoke suit, it is best to embrace it. A good tailor aims to get to know you as much as possible so that every finite part of your suit is precisely how it should be. This ensures that what you walk away with isn’t just a nice suit but an adaption of your personality. When you own a bespoke suit like this, you’ll constantly notice new and unique features. Every part of the suit will say something about who you are, from the lapels, cuffs, and shoulders to the decorative hand stitching around the pockets.

Why it is easier to communicate your thoughts and ideas with a tailor you know 

Of course, we all feel more comfortable communicating thoughts and ideas with those we know, and the same goes for tailors. Many of us have probably experienced the difficulty of working with an unfamiliar and sometimes uncooperative tailor. Those who have can tell you how frustrating this is. However, the more you and your tailor get to know each other, the more success you will both have in communicating with and understanding each other. Furthermore, this doesn’t mean you will have a bad experience with an unfamiliar tailor. After all, relationships need to start somewhere. If you are using a bespoke tailor for the first time, you should approach them as you would a friend and be an open book. This attitude will create an atmosphere that ensures the creation of your dream suit is a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Always receive high-quality future adjustments that won’t jeopardise your suit

Over the years, every single one of us is prone to change. From food and music tastes to friendship groups, our interests are constantly evolving. This is also true for style and, unfortunately, our size. This is one of the most essential roles of a regular tailor. Firstly, the tailor who made your original suit should always be the number one choice for any adjustments. They will know where to find everything they need, from the fabric to the thread, so the quality of your suit is never compromised. Secondly, building a relationship with a tailor means they grow with you and will probably know what you want before you’ve even said it. Sticking with and building a positive relationship with your tailor means every future adjustment is of the same quality as the original suit; you will walk away with another perfect product, and each alteration keeps up to date with who you currently are.

Five additional reasons you should stick with a good tailor when you find one

As you can see, having a good relationship with your tailor will have tremendous benefits. It is certainly a way to guarantee that the experience of getting your next bespoke suit runs as perfectly as possible, and you will walk away with exactly what you desire. However, there are still some additional benefits we thought were important to mention, too.

Consistent quality – once you find your perfect tailor, sticking with them means you will never be disappointed with the quality of your suit. You will forever get the quality you desire or better. Just like you will enjoy finding your perfect tailor, tailors love it when they find a good customer, so they will be happy to get to work on your next bespoke suit.

Maintain your wardrobe standards – when your wardrobe looks exactly how you want it, you need it to stay like that. Even using another high-quality tailor can result in not meeting your current standards and expectations. This is something you don’t need to worry about when you stick with a tailor you know and trust.

Personalised advice– having a good relationship with your tailor means they know you and exactly what you are looking for. Using the same tailor means they will know what does and doesn’t work for you, even when you don’t. You can be sure to always receive the right advice from your regular tailor.

Convenience – You will always get your new bespoke suits with ease when using a familiar face. You will know them, where they are, and how they operate. This creates a smooth process with no unexpected surprises every time you want a new fabulous addition to your wardrobe collection.

As your style evolves, your relationship grows– When using a new tailor, you can tell them what you are looking for and answer any of their questions. It is likely they will gain a clear understanding of who you are and what you want right now, but they don’t know who you were then. A regular tailor can use their knowledge of what you used to like to make sound judgments on what will work now. This can be extraordinarily beneficial to counteract any ideas we have about our new suit that might not work how we want them to.

Choose the right tailor for your next bespoke suit

Any man who takes pride in what he wears will understand the importance of building a relationship with his tailor. Tailors are not simply clothing merchants; they are your guide to becoming the person you have always wanted to be. A good tailor will strive to know and understand as much about you as possible so that what they create is a perfect masterpiece that embodies exactly who you are and how you feel.
