Fashion, in particular men’s fashion has seen an increased amount of attention over the past few years.
Once an industry that was small and somewhat ignored, men’s fashion has become a highlight in industries worldwide. Magazines have begun to launch “men’s” sections, men’s fashion weeks have become increasingly popular and lifestyle brands for men have been on the rise.
With the increased attention to the fashion industry catering to men, more and more eligible men are taking pride in their appearance by incorporating skin care regimes into their days, learning about accessories and opting for flattering clothing that forges their own unique personal style. Eligible men for example are following the age-old belief of “clothes make the man” and thus constantly looking for the best wear to showcase their personality.
In an age where “fast fashion” is the norm, custom clothing offers a special experience with full creative control. Companies like King & Bay for example, offer full customization over what your suit, jacket, shirt or pant will look like. Additionally, they create a custom trial suit so customers get to visualize how their customizations will look prior to the full suit being created. Custom suits are a great example of how men are not only embracing their own sense of style, but they are looking for ways to incorporate their personalities into their everyday suits and formal wear.
“Whether an everyday suit or a formal piece for a specific occasion, we’re seeing more and more male customers opting for customization,” comments Aaron Ignacio, Clothing Specialist, King and Bay Custom Clothing. “Men are taking a real interest in creating a statement.”
With the increased number of eyes on celebrities via social media, celebrities are also discovering the benefits of custom clothing and using their custom apparel as a vehicle to demonstrate their brand to the public.
Bruce Buffer, The Veteran Voice of the Octagon for UFC, (Bruce is exclusively dressed by King and Bay), loves to demonstrate his personality with custom raw silk smoking jackets that are created specifically for his body shape and size. For Bruce, having custom is essential as he’s regularly in the public eye. Other celebrities that have worn custom King and Bay include Joe Thornton, Brent Burns, Wayne Simmons and Anze Kopitar, as well as The Tragically Hip’s Rob Baker to name a few.
Custom suiting from companies like King and Bay are not the cheapest option for looking great, but they are the most effective in creating that Eligible Man statement. In comparison to other “bespoke” suiting companies, King and Bay doesn’t work off ready-made patterns. Each suit is specifically measured and tailored for that individual and two fittings are completed to ensure the fit is perfect.
The truth is that custom clothing can be for anybody. When you wear a custom suit, your posture changes, you stand a little taller, your head is held a little higher, and there is an undeniable confident energy that you can portray when you wear something that feels great, looks great and fits impeccably.
As Edith Head once said, “You can have everything you want in life if you just dress for it.”
