When you are investing in a custom suit or custom tuxedo, it’s tempting to want to save a little money in your budget by going with an off the rack tie, shirt, or cummerbund. However, you should be aware of the value in custom accessories.
For one thing, as fashion experts know, it’s the accessories that make the outfit. The most beautifully tailored suit can be brought down by a poor quality shirt or tie. So when you are choosing your custom suit fabric, order custom shirts to go with it. Chances are they’ll coordinate with the rest of your wardrobe, and will make sure that everyone is paying attention to the quality and detail in your beautiful new suit, and not the cheap shirt you are wearing with it.
Even something as rarely used as a cummerbund can make your outfit if it’s been custom made for you. If you are dressing in formal wear for a special event, take the time to have a custom tie and cummerbund made. Not only do you have complete control over the fabric, but they will fit and flatter you like no rental or off the rack garment could. And a quality bow tie will always flatter your custom made tuxedo.
