How to know get the perfect tailored fit
If you've ever wondered how to know when your tailored clothing fits right, Albert Gerald is here to help. It's all about finding the right balance between being stylish and comfortable. If you can do that, then it doesn't matter how much money you spend on a suit or a pair of pants — they'll still be worth every penny.
Figure out your measurements.
When you're searching for custom clothing online, it's important to know what measurements they take. Each brand takes different measurements and uses the numbers differently. For example, some brands will use the measurement from the top of your shoulders down to where you want your shirt sleeves to end; other brands may ask for your actual arm length in inches instead of a measurement from shoulder seam to wrist (so make sure you do your research). It can be really helpful to have someone else take these measurements for you—especially when it comes time to figure out how long each part should be.
If possible, take all these measurements while wearing undergarments that are similar (if not identical) those worn under the garment itself on a day-to-day basis—this will ensure accurate results! For example: if I'm getting pants made with dressy slacks as an intended style, I'll make sure I'm wearing them when measuring my waist size so as not to accidentally get something that's too tight around my hips or butt area.
Sleeves should be just below the wrist.
The sleeves of your dress shirt should be just below the wrist, which means they should come down far enough to cover your wrists. If the sleeves are too short, it will be uncomfortable and look bad. When trying on a shirt with long sleeves, make sure there is even coverage from top to bottom—no gaps or sagging! The ideal length can vary depending on how you wear them; if you prefer to roll up your sleeves for comfort and style, then a slightly shorter length may work best for you.
If a sleeve is too tight around one arm but loose around another arm, that’s probably not right either. You want both arms to feel snug but not constricting or tight when wearing that particular shirt/dress shirt combo every day!
Your jacket's buttons should button easily and naturally.
You should not have to tug or pull on the jacket's buttons in order to get it buttoned.
If you do have to tug or pull, then it may be too big.
The jacket should be able to close without pulling on the buttons.
The jacket's shoulder seam should end at the top of your shoulder bone.
The jacket's shoulder seam should end at the top of your shoulder bone. It shouldn't be too far down the arm, because that will make you look like a linebacker or a football player. Also, it shouldn't be too high on the arm, because then your sleeves will pull when you lift them up to reach for something (like lifting beer bottles). Finally, if your shirt sleeve has any wrinkles in it when you're standing with your arms at your sides (kind of like those guys who come into Chipotle and order burritos but never eat them), then this means that either your shirt is too tight or the armhole of your blazer is too low.
Sleeves should have enough fabric to allow you to move with ease.
The sleeves of a dress shirt should be long enough to cover your wrists and have enough fabric to allow you to move with ease. If they are too short, they may pull up on your arm as you reach forward or lift your arms above your head. Additionally, if the sleeves fit tightly around the upper arm, it can be uncomfortable when moving around or sitting for an extended period of time.
Pants should fall flat against your leg, not baggy or saggy.
When your pants are too tight, they can give you the dreaded sausage effect and look unflattering. When they’re too loose, they look sloppy and baggy. The correct fit will fall flat against your leg—not too tight or loose, but just right.
A good pair of pants will have a slight taper from waist to ankle (i.e., not straight down). This is especially important when buying tailored-fit pants because if they don't taper at all then there will be bunching across the backside when you sit down.
When trying on tailored fit trousers, make sure that they aren't too long or too short!
Pants should have enough fabric to sit comfortably between your hips and waist.
When it comes to pants, a lot of people don't know what they're getting into. They think that any pair of pants will do, but in reality there are some basic guidelines you should follow when you're shopping for pants that fit properly.
Pants should be comfortable and should not cause chafing or feel tight in any way. If you've never had a tailored pair of pants before, this is often difficult to tell because the majority of off-the-rack clothing has been designed for mass production rather than comfort and fit. However, after wearing a few pairs from our shop (or other businesses which focus on providing high quality clothing), you'll begin to understand what it feels like when your clothes fit right!
If your jeans aren't fitting properly around your waist and hips then they won't look good on anyone else either! The first step towards finding the perfect pair is determining whether or not they fit correctly at all! To do so just ask yourself these questions: Do they fall naturally around my ankles? Are there any gaps between my body and fabric where they should be snug against me without being too tight? Does it feel like there's enough material left over after taking measurements into account?
Your pants should fit snugly around your ankles without being tight or restricting movement.
You should also be able to move freely in your pants. You don't want them so tight that they restrict movement, but you also don't want them so loose that they fall off or bunch up around your ankles.
Ankle pants should fit snugly around the ankle without being too tight or restricting movement. The band should be fitted, not loose and sloppy, so make sure to try on a pair with a slightly narrower opening than other pants in your wardrobe if this is an issue for you.
If you're wearing high-rise trousers (a style where the waistband sits just below the natural waistline), then the leg opening will fall higher on the leg than it would on traditional low-rise jeans or chinos—but there's still some give here!
Your ankles can't reveal too much when you sit or stand in front of a mirror.
The next step to finding the perfect fit is to check the length of your trousers.
No one wants to show too much ankle when they sit or stand in front of a mirror, so make sure that you can't see any part of your ankle when wearing them. If it's not covered by the hem, then it's too long and needs shortening. The same goes for pants being too short; if there are gaps between them and your shoes or socks, then they need altering.
In terms of length, keep both pairs on for 10 minutes and check how comfortable they feel around your hips and waist—if there isn't enough room for movement then it might be worth getting them taken in slightly (but remember not to get them too tight).
Make sure you're comfortable in tailored clothing before buying it.
Before you invest in a new pair of tailored pants or shirt, make sure you're comfortable with the fit. You can do this by visiting a tailor shop and trying on different styles. It's also helpful to try on different fabrics and materials, like wool or linen—this way you'll be able to see how they feel when your body is moving around freely.
Once you've found something that works well for your body type, ask the tailor if it would be possible to adjust the piece so that it fits better. A good tailor will know how to alter clothing with ease (and won't mind doing so). If none of their styles fit quite right either, consider asking friends for recommendations on where else in town someone might be able to assist with custom tailoring services at affordable rates!
You don't have to spend a fortune on tailored clothing to look good, but you do need to know what you want and how to get it.

There are two main ways that tailors work with customers: by fitting clothes that are already made, or by taking measurements from scratch and creating the garment from scratch. In either case, there are several things that can help ensure that your tailor gets the job done right.
First off, be clear about your needs and desires before making an appointment with a tailor. Talk through which elements of fit you're most concerned with (like sleeve length or waist size), what kinds of alterations are possible within the budget constraints of your chosen piece (for example: "Can I shorten this hem?" versus "Is there room for a full hem alteration?"), or any other aspects of a garment's design (such as requesting darts in pleats) that would benefit from some attention at the hands of an expert tailor.
If you’re trying to shop for tailored clothing, remember that there are a lot of different factors involved. You might have heard that the tailor will make sure your shirts fit well, or learn about other details like length and sleeve length. But it all starts with knowing what kind of look you want to achieve—and what type of person you are when it comes down to it! If you know exactly how much money and time you want to spend on these items then everything else should fall into place pretty easily. For aby tailor shop needs please give us a call!
