Odds are you have already heard about Suitsupply, and if so, well done. If for some reason you have not yet heard about them, now you have, and you’re welcome. For in just 16 short years, Suitsupply has garnered accolades throughout the globe, from fashion writers and fashion periodicals alike. Lauded by the likes of Vanity Fair, Esquire, GQ, The New York Times as well as the Wall Street Journal:
“High quality fabric, clean soft construction for comfort. ‘Lots of attention to detail’… the $614 [Sienna] Suitsupply suit matched the $3,625 Armani in quality.”
– The Wall Street Journal
“Their philosophy is to marry impeccable tailoring (canvas construction, hand-set shoulders, hand-stitching at the seams) with a more contemporary aesthetic and fit”
– Vanity Fair
Suitsupply is focused primarily on suiting and dress shirts, and maintains a surprisingly strong made to measure program. But the best part; Suitsupply can save you loads of cash, while having you look snappy at the same time.
Nearly all of their suits come in well south of $1000 and offer luxurious materials, featuring a vast array of fabrics from our friends over in Italy, who over that past few centuries have gotten quite good on the loom.
And unlike many of the cut-rate online menswear retailers, who keep their costs low by investing no money in retail spaces, Suitsupply offers showrooms and certain on-site tailoring services, so you don’t feel like a robot ordering your new suit online. In fact, they now have over 50 brick and mortar stores in some 12 different countries.
There is a timeless quality about haberdashery and the tactile feel and experience of interacting with a human being while purchasing something as personal as a nice suit or tuxedo. This can be important clothing, especially if you are purchasing say, the suit that you plan on getting married in. Suitsupply understands this and aims to pass on the good feelings that this experience should entail.
And while not quite a bespoke experience, least not at these price points, Suitsupply definitely raises the made to measure bar up plenty of notches, bringing the exercise more in-line with the custom-made process. But at this rate, you can buy five suits for the cost of one custom, and while we’d all like to live in a world where our clothing budget is unlimited, for the average gent, that would prove a fairy tale indeed.
