A man’s suit coat has often been likened to a woman’s purse: many items find their way to its pockets. When being measured for your next suit, be sure to bring everything that normally accompanies you in your business-wear, including your dress shoes. If you tend to keep items in a certain pocket, they ought to be part of creating the entire look. Cell phone, keys, wallet or money clip, handkerchief or pocket square, and glasses can be integrated into your bespoke suit just as well as your posture and height.
Being fitted with all your accessories can eliminate unpleasant surprises down the road, such as discovering that your wallet creates an unsightly bulge in your coat, or that the sleeve of your dress shirt does not accommodate your watch. Customized clothing fits not only your form, but your lifestyle and habits.
