Whether you’re looking for custom clothing, luxury mens clothing, or men’s designer clothing, there will be a lot to consider. But before you run off looking for their business license and asking for referrals from past clients, there are a few tips that will help you sort out the good from the bad right of the bat.

First, make sure you can see samples. It’s best if you can go into an actual store so you can look at fabric and see if you like how they look and feel against your skin. If you live in a rural area or can’t get to an actual store, do make sure that you go online and find as many pictures of the store’s product as possible. Testimonials, reviews, and referrals to be found on the site are also extra bonuses and will show you that you’re working with a good company.

Also make sure that you ask for generous seam allowances, and that get confirmation that the store can do it. A seam allowance will allow for a bit of extra room should pants or a shirt ever start fitting too snuggly, and having it could save you a lot on alteration costs. Most stores won’t have a problem with allowing for a generous seam allowance, but because they do need to be exact, you may have to go into the store yourself in order to get them.
