In 2016 weddings are ALL about making the celebration completely custom and personalizing the aesthetic down to the very last detail…and now I am BEYOND excited to announce that it continues… with completely custom wedding tuxedos, wedding suits, dinner jackets and dress shirts. Yes ladies + gents…. it’s time from the Groom to get in on the shine and take advantage of some much needed TLC! This one goes out to all our handsome men out there and is brought to you by one of New Mexico’s industry leaders in men’s fashion and formal wear, Ashley Kerns of Suits Unlimited: Here’s what she had to say about this sweet new trend.
Suits Unlimited is known for our menswear and especially our formal wear. We have helped hundreds of weddings achieve their menswear style for their big day.Whether it’s classic tuxedos, or suits for the wedding party to purchase, we have always tried to make the best options available for our clients.This leads us to happily announce a new service for brides and grooms: custom suits, tuxedos, and dress shirts.
We have found an incredible vendor to work with to help clients achieve their dream menswear. This service comes with a higher price tag but it’s clothing that is made to your every measurement, styled to your request, and can be built on a virtual mannequin on our iPads for your approval. We can even send the looks you have chosen if you are undecided via email. Styles are kept conveniently in your inbox for when you’re ready.
Our clothing professionals can measure you to a “T” for your specific body type. There are hundreds of swatches of colors and patterns to choose from in jackets, pants, entire suits, and dress shirts. Detailed options include everything from picking your own buttons, color of thread for each button hole or lining of the jacket, down to the type of cuff and collar on a dress shirt.
A big hang up in ordering custom wear was waiting to find out if certain fabrics were still available. In most cases it would take a few days to find out if the fabric you chose was on the chopping block. Now, we have real time inventory where we can tell you immediately if a swatch or style is available.
Custom used to also take a while to be completed, but what used to take a few months now takes just under 4 weeks to create a custom suit. The service is even faster for dress shirts. After custom garments are complete and ship in, we do a final fitting to make sure everything fits perfectly. If something still needs a little adjusting, our tailoring department is on site so we can quickly to ensure the best fit.
We hope brides and grooms can look at this as an option for their wedding day. Again, it’s a higher price tag for bespoke clothing but if it’s viewed as an investment piece and something they will cherish for years to come, it can be well worth it. Every wedding is different, shouldn’t the clothing be too?
Well you heard it here first folks… now let’s just sit back and watch all of our dapper grooms light up our INSTA feeds with their amazing, completely custom suits! I went searching for some of my fave Bespoke looks… check them out below:
