Rewind five years ago and buying custom clothing usually meant going through a lengthy in-person measurement process and paying significantly more than you would for ready-to-wear clothing. This meant that custom was reserved for those with high disposable incomes. Fast-forward to today and you can actually buy custom for less than ready-to-wear in many cases and there are more custom clothiers online than ever before, and that trend is only accelerating.
In some cases custom clothing can also be given as a gift when using technologies like the Virtual Tailor since they don’t require any in-person measurements. As usual our team is plugged-into the latest-and-greatest in the online custom clothing space and they’ve found three great deals, two that can be used for gifting (i.e. no measuring required) and one that you can use to buy yourself something special.
If you’ve held-off on buying custom this Friday you can take the plunge while wearing your pajamas from the comfort of your own home while you enjoy leftovers from your Thanksgiving feast. Enjoy!
