Think long-term. Choose a thick fab­ric

Plaza Uomo UK - - MANUAL -

There's no doubt be­spoke and made-to-mea­sure cloth­ing is ex­pen­sive, but think of it as a long-term in­vest­ment and it may be less painful to part with the cash. Af­ter all, in­vest­ing in a time­less tai­lor­made piece makes much more sense than spend­ing money on some­thing that looks like it just came off the cat­walk and that, most likely, will end up in the back of your wardrobe in a few months time. As you set off on your wardrobe trans­for­ma­tion, opt for sta­ple items and base colours. Two suits – one navy and one grey – and a navy over­coat is a great start. From then on you can add jack­ets, tweed and linen. Since the metic­u­lous con­struc­tion of a tai­lor-made piece will make it last a life time, it's im­por­tant that the fab­ric has longevity. While a su­per 150s suit might feel amaz­ingly light, it will wear pretty quickly. If you can't af­ford to splash out on a num­ber of be­spoke pieces to re­place one af­ter the other, you're bet­ter off go­ing for a some­what thicker, more durable fab­ric. Bri­tish made Worsted wools are ideal.
