When it comes to men’s suits, there are a lot of options out there. There are off the rack suits, made to measure and bespoke suits. If money is no object and you want the best suit possible – go bespoke. But what’s the difference between these three types of suits?
The main difference is the quality of fabric. A made to measure suit or bespoke suit will usually come in a range of different fabrics including wool, linen and cotton. However, the better the quality of the fabric – the more expensive it will be. The type of fabric also has a huge impact on how long the suit will last and how well it holds creases. For example, a merino wool will typically hold creases much better than a cheap wool.
There are also many different linings and interlinings available in both made to measure and bespoke suits. The more expensive the linings are, the more it will cost to make the suit. For example, silk is a more expensive lining than polyester.
A final point on fabric is that the region in which a suit is made has an impact on how much it will cost. A suit made in the Middle East or Asia will typically be less expensive than a suit that is made in France, Italy, or another European country. The reason for this is the difference in labor costs.
