MTM (made to measure) for shorter guys
Why would a shorter man go to a store that sells clothing for short men, for a MTM, made to measure outfit.
The answer is simple. At ROBBIE BROWN, clothing for men up to 5’8”, we understand the customer and his fit better than anyone.
If someone doesn’t see what they want/need off-the-rack, we have a tremendous selection of quality fabrics that we can show them. Even if someone just wants to design a suit with special details, our manufactures and tailors will be able to satisfy their desires, and most important, the fit is going to be excellent.
The fact that shorter men tend to stand more erect, the fact that the strap on a heavier short man has to be made longer so the lapel doesn’t gape, the fact that most people/company’s don’t fully understand the importance of having the correct neck to waist measurement, all are part of the many specific details that go into our MTM garments.
For the shorter guy with an athletic or stout figure, the same need for special knowledge is vital. Each of these body types is affected by a man’s height and not understanding this, makes for suit that will never fit (even thought it is made-to-measure). I always tell people, go to someone that has appropriate knowledge, is insightful, and has the experience and good track record.
Besides providing the manufacturer with the right/appropriate measurement, the cutter has to be able to adjust the pattern properly. The company’s that produce our MTM garments, are used to our specifications, and don’t take short cuts (no pun intended).
If we are working off our existing pattern, we are way ahead of the game, as our short and extra short patterns (and fit) are amazing. If we have to create a new pattern, then our extensive knowledge about fit, is always applied.
Because our off-the-rack fit is so good, you may not need MTM, however if you choose to use this service, you will notice a tremendous difference in the way we do things.
If you are interested in scheduling a MTM appointment, or have any particular questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
