Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to clothes, there’s no secret there. But if you have ever wondered why some people always seem to have clothes “that just fit” and hug their bodies??
I can tell you now there is a good chance that man or woman’s secret is a tailor or seamstress. When companies manufacture their clothes they use a general shirt pattern which obviously changes according to style or size, you need to remember that these patterns are created to cater for a wide range of different body types, this in turn allows these companies a better chance to profit by selling a great volume of their products and reducing the chances of having dead stock (stock that is lying around in storage).
If you want your clothes to fit just right you need to pay a professional and for them to tailor to your body specifications exactly you will need to either provide them with your measurements or better yet go in person.
I recommend going in person as the tailor can pin around your body for a greater fit, this also allows you to ensure that you still have full mobility after alterations are made to your clothing. I tailor my clothes to tightly hug my body because I find it more comfortable for me, but each person is different and you should get your clothes tailored to your liking.
You can find quality tailors anywhere in the world. Maybe you’re a little strapped for cash but are off for a holiday in Thailand, PERFECT!!!!! You can find quality tailors in Bangkok no problems there are literally hundreds of them and for the price of a top quality custom made Armani suit, you can have a holiday and half a dozen custom made suits. Thailand is a great place to find quality tailors so this may be an option for you.
OK so maybe you don’t have the money to go on a holiday and get a bunch of custom suits in Thailand, but you have a bunch of nice dress shirts you would like to fit well.

As I said there are thousands of quality tailors all around the world and you can find a tailor in New York City (NYC) or you can find yourself a very posh well spoken English tailor in London all for very reasonable prices, this obviously is all circumstantial upon your location.
The trick is to look around. Find a tailor you like and get along with, because if you manage to find one that does incredible work you will no doubt be seeing a lot of him/her in the future.
My tailor actually gives me large discounts because I have been going to him for many years and have created a close professional relationship with him, if I have any queries regarding tailoring he is the first person I call, because he knows my personal tastes and the limitations to tailoring he can give me a relative idea of whether or not an item of clothing can be altered BEFORE I purchase it.
This is only the case because I have formed a professional friendship with him which benefits both of us. The biggest tip I can probably give you towards forming a similar set up is to continually search until you find a tailor that you connect with, it’s that connection which will bring the tailor repeat business and you a great deal of savings when you need your clothing alterations done;)
Be particular about your tailor, don’t settle for a cheap looking tailoring store, it doesn’t matter if it IS CHEAP but it does matter if IT LOOKS CHEAP… why??? Because if they don’t take any pride in the way their tailoring shop looks, then there is a really good chance that they don’t take any pride in their work either. This means that the quality they produce may not be up to par and the whole point of going to a professional is to have it done right.
