Communicating with Your Tailor

Communication is crucial when it comes to bespoke suits. If your tailor doesn't understand what you want, you won't be happy with the results. This video offers advice for communicating effectively with your tailor in New York City.

Pictures can be incredibly useful when talking to your bespoke tailor. Snap a photo with your phone of designs you like, be it a type of shirt collar or lapel style on formal wear. Show these photos to your tailor as you're explaining what you want, so there is no confusion in the terminology you're using. Ask your tailor to write down exactly what your bespoke item will look like in detail and review it together. This will help you avoid last-minute surprises when you pick up your custom clothing.
