What Exactly Do I Need?

A great wardrobe consists of an assortment of custom made shirts, mens' suits, slacks, jackets, topcoats, tuxedoes, vests and other essentials. The custom tailors at MyTailor™ can help you with the selection. Here are some guidelines.

Shirts look, fit and feel the best when created by a custom shirt shop that makes a pattern specifically for you. Dress shirts are usually laundered professionally. The number of custom dress shirts that you need can be determined by how often you wish to take your shirts out. Every two weeks is a good average for most men. So assuming you wear two weeks worth of dress shirts, you would do well to have at least 10 - 12 custom dress shirts in the following categories.
  1. Whites - Men working in a formal setting need more than others.
  2. Blues - Light, Classic, Medium and French blues
  3. Stripes - Classic single color stripes for your suits. Multi color stripes for your sports jacket or shirts and pants worn without a suit or jacket.
  4. Checks - Single color for your suits and multi color for your blazers

Mens' Suits should cover a variety of fabrics, looks and colors that maintain a professional demeanor. Custom tailors recommend that every man have a black suit for formal occasions and a variety of flannels, tweeds, herringbones, pinstripes and solids to keep things interesting throughout the month. Lighter suits are needed for warmer seasons and climate zones. Wearing variety of mens' suits communicates success and is therefore an excellent investment. A closet with 7 is considered a minimum, and some men have upwards of 30.

Slacks should fill your closet with enough pairs to make you look fresh and prosperous throughout the week. You will want to have a variety of fabrics including wools, flannels and cottons. A total of 15 mens' slacks is probably a good number for the well-dressed man, in addition to pants that are part of a suit.

Blazers can be business-like or perform admirably in social settings. Every man should have at least one navy blazer and an assortment of plaids, tweeds and solids. A minimum of 4 blazers is recommended-cleaned, pressed and ready to go.

Jackets and Topcoats are signature items for the well-dressed gentleman, allowing him to shift effortlessly from business attire to a casual mode. The topcoat is a must for wearing over a suit in colder weather. Consult with your custom tailor on the number of jackets and topcoats you will need.

Vests can be tailored as part of a suit or worn separately. As a minimum, 2 vests is a good place to start. Some men enjoy variety and have 5 -7 vests as essential elements of their personal wardrobe.

Mens' Tuxedos are essential for the gentleman's wardrobe. Nothing worse than trying to get a tuxedo made at the last minute by a tailor who may not fit the bill. A well-crafted tuxedo will serve you well for years.

Tuxedo Shirts should be custom tailored in advance so that you are always prepared for formal occasions. In general, men are advised to have at least 2 on hand for variety. It is recommended that you consult with custom tailors regularly so that your shirts stay within the evolution of style.

Ties are very important and should be selected with care so that they complement your shirts and suits. Custom tailors will assist you in selecting fabrics colors, stripes and patterns that are versatile and stylish. Our experience as a custom shirt shop tells us men need something in the range of 10 - 25 ties to have a well-appointed wardrobe.

Shoes should also provide a range of styles for every occasion. The foundation of a man's business wardrobe is the oxford or capped oxford. This classic shoe is simply unmatched for business wear. Another nice addition is the tassel loafer or penny loafer, also classics in the world of footwear. For variety, you will be proud to add a pair of suede bucks.

Belts are an important consideration. Black with a classic buckle is the smart way to begin your collection. From there, you might consider a brown belt for less serious situations. You can further express your individuality with a custom buckle. Once again, custom tailors can guide you towards the accessories that are best for you.

Socks should not call attention to themselves, but rather provide a smooth segue between slacks and shoes. Knee length black socks of a thin texture are most suitable for business. A well-equipped man will also have some shades of dark grey, and perhaps dark blue and dark green.
