How to Buy a Bespoke Suit

17th December 2023

In a world that values individuality and personal style, nothing exudes confidence and sophistication like a well-tailored suit. But finding the perfect men’s suit or women’s suit that complements your body, style, and personality can be a daunting task. This is where the art of bespoke tailoring comes into play. From Brisbane to Melbourne and across the world to LA, Wil Valor can help create you the perfect custom suit. 

Understanding the Occasion 

Before embarking on the journey of acquiring a bespoke suit, it's essential to consider the purpose of the suit. Tailored, bespoke suits are versatile garments that can be worn for various occasions, including formal events, business meetings, weddings, or even casual outings. Each of these events calls for a different style of suit. 

  • Formal Events: For black-tie events and galas, opt for a classic tuxedo. Ensure your accessories, such as a bow tie, are in line with the event's formality. 
  • Business Meetings: For a professional look, consider a well-fitted, single-breasted suit in a solid colour or simple pin stripes. Think classic colours like grey, navy and black. 
  • Weddings: When it comes to weddings, your choice depends on your role and the wedding's theme. Grooms often opt for classic two-piece suits or three-piece suits. Guests can choose a wide range of styles and colours to match the wedding's theme, often indicated on the invitation or suggested by the invitation's design. 

Selecting Fabrics and Colours 

The choice of fabric and colour is crucial in creating a suit that not only looks good but also feels comfortable. Wil Valor offers one of the widest ranges of fabrics to choose from, including wool, linen, cotton, and cashmere. Here are some considerations when choosing the fabric and colour and your personal Wil Valor consultant will guide you through this process to ensure your suit matches your needs: 

  • Wool: Wool is a classic choice and is suitable for all seasons. It's breathable and durable, making it an excellent option for year-round use. 
  • Linen: Linen suits are perfect for warm weather. They are casual, lightweight and breathable, providing comfort during the summer months. 
  • Colour: Your choice of colour depends on the occasion and your personal style. Dark colours like navy and charcoal are timeless and versatile, while lighter colours like pastels and beige are ideal for a more casual, summery look. 

The Bespoke Experience at Wil Valor 

Wil Valor offers a truly bespoke experience, ensuring that every aspect of your suit is tailored to your preferences and body measurements. Here's how the process works: 

  1. Initial Consultation: The journey begins with an initial consultation with an expert clothier. During this session, they will discuss your style preferences, the purpose of the suit, and take your body measurements. 
  2. Fabric Selection: You'll have the opportunity to browse through a wide range of high-quality fabrics and choose the one that best suits your needs and preferences. Your clothier will guide you through this and provide you with specific recommendations to achieve the look you are after. 
  3. Design Details: Personalise your suit by selecting design details like lapel style, pocket styles, and button options. Your tailor will guide you through the design process to create a suit that truly represents your style. 
  4. Fittings: Wil Valor takes meticulous care to ensure a perfect fit. Multiple fittings are scheduled to ensure that the suit is tailored precisely to your body. The first fitting is with a mould of your suit which will allow your clothier to ensure your suit fit is perfect before sending your final fabric into production. 
  5. Final Product and final fitting: After your final fitting and any minor alterations that are needed to perfect the final suit, you'll receive your bespoke suit. 

A well-tailored suit is an investment in your personal style and confidence. By considering the occasion and selecting the right fabric and colour, you can make an informed decision about the kind of suit you need. When it comes to acquiring a bespoke suit, Wil Valor offers an unparalleled experience, ensuring that every detail is tailored to your unique preferences and measurements. With a bespoke suit from Wil Valor, you'll not only look good, but you'll also feel like a true gentleman, ready to conquer the world with style and sophistication.
