A few days ago a great client of mine sent me an email with the photo below.
It highlights something that all people in fashion know, your binder clips are not just for binders! Fashion photographers use it to pin the clothes so close to the body that if that model moved those clips would pop off sending lighting assistants running for their lives.
This photograph actually highlights some of the key aspects we use to make you look better when we design a suit made for you.
1. The curve in your back, this immediately will make you look slimmer by eliminating the cape effect of a off the rack suit.
2. By making the arm slim and raising the armhole we create open space between your arm and your body. This accentuates the slim effect and also helps create the desired “V” shape in a suit.
3. Not pictured, but just as important is the slim leg. By slimming the leg you create open space again which makes you look slimmer and taller.
We know you might not always have the time to get a custom suit from us. So next time you see an ad stating “You’ll will like the way you look, I guarantee it”. Remember this image before rushing to the store to pick up your suit, 4 sportcoats, 3 pants, 5 sweaters, and 5 ties all for the price of a suit.
