As of late, it’s been noticeable that more guys are starting to take an interest in more sophisticated things. Some have taken a liking to finely distilled spirits, such from many of Europe single malt whiskey or gin. Others take it little further by collecting well-crafted watches, from small watchmakers to bigger luxury brands. But for some, it’s in having well-tailored suits, or for those that have a more refined preference, bespoke suits.

Bespoke suits are the most personally crafted type of suits one can have made, as opposed to made-to-measure suits which, to be put simply, is just an already made suit that is altered to one’s measurements. Bespoke, on the other hand, is a suit that is made from scratch. This involves a consultation with the master tailor to determine what type of suit will be made, what occasion will this be for, what materials will be used, and other necessary details, which usually takes around two months, including several fitting sessions.
