Welcome to Jacket’s Required, hello, I’m Dominic Lacquaniti, designer and tailor.
I often get asked what’s the difference between Off the Rack, Made to Measure and Custom.
The answer is simple…
Off the Rack – is made for everyone and fits no one
Made to Measure – is made from a basic block and altered to fit you in key basic areas – sleeve length, jacket length, etc.
Custom or Bespoke means exactly that – the pattern and the garment have been made exclusively for you from beginning to end.
Now you know so there’s no excuse for being Off the Rack when you’re deserving of Custom, Bespoke, well fitting clothing.
Share with your stylish, and style-challenged friends, and be sure to let me know if you have a specific question or topic you’d like to see in the series. Thanks for watching. See you next week. Remember, looking good is between you and your tailor…
