5 Reasons to Invest in Custom-Made

Debating whether or not you should rent a tux vs. buying one? Maybe you’ve already decided to rent because it will be cheaper. But, have you considered the economic value of purchasing your own tuxedo? To quickly summarize this point, take a look at our info-graphic below:

photo(9)The initial difference in cost is almost enough to help you decide on a rental. However, when you consider the difference in the long-run, you easily save more than you spend when you invest in a custom-tailored suit or tuxedo.

Not only is it cheaper, but once you make the investment, it’s also much easier! You no longer have to go through the trouble of renting a tux for each and every special occasion. All you have to do is simply go into your closet, put on your beautiful Clifton Charles custom suit, and you’ll be one of the most sharply dressed men at the party! If the dress code is unspecified, a classic suit is always an appropriate choice.

Now, think about the fit. Do you really want to pay between $150-$200 for a rental suit that might not fit right? When you invest in a Clifton Charles custom-made suit, it will be tailored to fit you, and only you, perfectly. We take your specific measurements to create a suit that fits and flatters. No two men are exactly the same shape or size, so why should your suits be?

Let’s talk customization. This is where men get to have a little fun! Think of all the options you have when handpicking a suit… fabric and color choice, extra details like lining the jacket or piping around pockets, and even monograms. With the help of the staff at Clifton Charles, you are guaranteed to find the perfect ensemble that fits your personal style. If you are feeling overwhelmed with any of the custom details, we are more than happy to make suggestions or recommendations that will suit your needs.

Still not convinced? The most important reason to invest in a custom suit: Confidence. “One of the most rewarding things is seeing the confidence a man has when a suit fits him,” says Clifton Berry of Clifton Charles. A man should look as good as he feels. A custom-tailored suit will do just that.
