Custom Made Clothes

Custom Made clothes are likely to fit your frame more snugly than. They are made to your measurements (MTM) typically refers to custom clothing that is cut and sewn using a standard-sized base pattern.

Suits and sport coats are the most common garments made-to-measure. The fit of a made-to-measure garment is expected to be superior to that of a ready-to-wear garment because made-to-measure garments are constructed to fit each customer individually based on a few body measurements to customize the pre-existing pattern.

Made-to-measure garments always involve some form of standardization in the pattern and manufacturing, whereas bespoke tailoring is entirely made from scratch based on a customer’s specifications with far more attention to minute fit details and using multiple fittings during the construction process.

All else being equal, a made-to-measure garment will be more expensive than a ready-to-wear garment but cheaper than a bespoke one. “Custom made” most often refers to MTM. Country of origin makes a difference in pricing, with made in China MTM garments typically priced below made in Italy ready-to-wear.
