5 reasons why you should choose “Ready Made Formal Wear”

Men often get stumped by the choices – readymade or tailor made – when it comes to formal wear. While the people who swear by tailor-made clothes will always have something against them, we’re here to break the myths and the reputation surrounding readymade clothes.

So here are 5 reasons why Ready Made Formal wear is definitely an option to consider!

1) Wide Variety of Designs
Choosing the right make of fabric and design can be a daunting task when selecting fabrics for formal wear. This trouble is more or less avoided when one opts for readymade outfits since they are updated with every season, keeping in mind current fashion trends. Age old patterns like checkered, pinstripes for shirts are always re-invented and given a contemporary look. So all you have to do is choose a style that suits your taste!

2) Made for Everyone.
Manufacturers have realised the importance of customizing for the masses, and for this, they have introduced various fits in shirts, trousers and other items of clothing. Shirts are now available in styles such as Slim Fit and Regular Fit and are comfortable and accentuate your body type in the most subtle way possible.

3) Lower Wait Times – Perfect for those in a hurry
While nothing can come close to bespoke suits that are crafted to meet each and every minute detail specified by you, you will often come across moments in life when you require something very fast. The long process of getting yourself a custom-made suit just won’t cut it for you. Then what?! Cancel Events? NO! A readymade suit with minor alterations can do the trick!

4) Know exactly what you’re getting
While for a lot of men, the wait might not be a huge deal, fair enough! But let’s not forget about the fact that, there will always be a level of uncertainty of how the clothes will turn out to be after they are stitched. While a lot of people may have trusted tailors that they have known for years, some may move cities or localities and end up hunting for a tailor that suits them again. If you find yourself in a situation like this, walk into one of our Siyaram’s Store and experience our Tailor Fit services for clothes with an exemplary fit.
If time is the enemy, opt for something off the rack. With readymade clothes, one knows what exactly he is getting and there is always someone at the store who will give you an opinion about the choice you are making.

5) Economical
Last but not the least, contrary to popular belief, readymade clothes are not more expensive than bespoke wear. If nothing, it is usually cheaper or at par with your tailor-made formal outfits. Investing in yourself is one of the most important things and, spending your hard earned money wisely is of utmost importance.
So these were a few reasons to prefer readymade formal wear over a custom stitched one. However, at the same time we need to understand that readymade clothing also cannot be trusted blindly, hence, it is really important to understand the fabrics of the brand you are making your purchase from.
With Siyaram’s you can get the best of both worlds with the readymade clothing we offer, so you can be sure of receiving the best quality of fabrics, and a bang for your buck! Be sure to check out our range of readymade clothing from J.Hampstead and Oxemberg along with those from our fashion partners Cadini. We have something for everyone.

Men’s guide to tailor-made suit style | Siyaram Blog

We love bespoke suits to no extent, and every man wants that one suit which brings out the best in him and sets him apart from the rest. One that can be worn on special occasions or business meetings and will always make heads turn. This reason alone is enough to include a few tailor-made suits in your wardrobe.

A ludicrous fact is that most men who shop for suits end up visiting high-end boutiques and purchase them because of the brand name rather than the quality. Even then, that suit may rarely fit you well. Instead, for those special occasions when something off-the-rack will not do, invest in a tailor-made suit that fits you well.

Classic Stylish Suits to suit your style

Let’s make this task easy for you. Follow these simple steps to get your hands on the best piece.

Step 1: Find a Reliable Tailor
Wondering where to find such a tailor? Don’t worry. They can be easily sought in stores where you buy your suit material. For e.g. most Siyaram’s Shops have the Tailor Fit Service where you can get a high-end bespoke suit. If this doesn’t work out, then turn to friends, family and colleagues. Ask around a bit, gather information and pick out the best.

Step 2: Select your Fabric
Right after you’ve found yourself a reliable tailor, the next step is getting fabric. Buy a fabric of your choice. Be sure of your choice. You might want to take a second opinion before the final purchase and the last opinion should be of the tailor. Ensure that you buy enough fabric, and don’t compromise on the quality.

Step 3: Talk to the Tailor
Your tailor will take all the required measurements. Even though the tailor has created numerous suits, it is important to maintain an open communication with him at all phases of your suit’s fabrication. Ask questions, give feedback. In short, be clear about how the final piece will look so that you don’t end up being disappointed. Mention even the tiniest of details like how would you want your suit to fall on your shoulders, waist, shoes, etc.

Step 4: Decide on the Style

How should the suit appear? Should it be two-buttoned or three-buttoned? These little confusions are typical. Gather information about ongoing trends. Search magazines and find what designs are trendy and stylish. Maybe even cut out a magazine image. In case you don’t really follow fashion trends, go for a classic suit. Discuss your requirements with the tailor. A tailor can also tell you what best complements your body type and flatters your size.

Step 5: Customize it

Tailored suits offer great scope for adding personal touches to make your suit look genuine and unique. Discuss these with the tailor to make your suit even more appropriate.

Step 6: Ultimate fitting

The suit is ready now. Meticulously check every minute detail. Don’t be reluctant about asking for little adjustments. Remember, YOU are paying for the suit. Ensure everything fits you in the desired way. The tailor will personally observe each and every bit of the suit to make sure it fits you perfectly, but you should do your bit to be on the safe side. If you are not content with the appearance, you might want the tailor to reconsider some bits. Take along a fashion forward friend that knows about suits to avoid tunnel vision during the various fittings.

And there you have it, the essence of tailored suits- its uniqueness. You wouldn’t need to have it altered several times before it fits you perfectly. All these little perks definitely override buying a popular brand name.
