Looking to Suit Up in St Paul?
Whether you are attending a job interview, a work’s function or a wedding reception, no doubt you want to dress to impress. However, if you are hoping to suit up in St Paul, do you know what you should be looking for in the store that you select for your purchase? It’s all too easy just to walk into the first menswear store selling suits that you come to, but if you are after a really special suit – one that fits really well and will allow you to receive numerous compliments – it’s important to give the matter of where you buy your suit some consideration.
Before you set off on your mission to suit up in St Paul, it’s important to do a bit of research. Start by asking some of your fashion conscious friends, colleagues and family where they go to buy their suits; although everyone has their own idea of what’s important and has different requirements when it comes to suiting up, it will give you a starting point. Once you have a few store names, you can then set about visiting each in turn to meet with the staff there and see what they have to offer.
There are a number of important questions to ask when you are determining which store to buy your suit from, so be sure to ask these when you visit. Find out details about the types of suits they have on offer – whether they’re ready-made or made to measure, do they fit with the image that you’re hoping to achieve from your suit? Always make sure that you see some example of their suits – this is easy when they are hanging up on rails, but with those custom-made make sure you at the very least see photos and ideally at least a couple of finished garments to give you a good idea of the quality of their workmanship. Even better, ask if you can speak to some satisfied customers; a good tailors should have no problems in providing you with a list. If you are looking to have a suit tailored or made to measure, ask about time frames – yes, you want them to take time ensuring the garment is to the highest standard and you appreciate they have other customers, but at the same time you don’t expect to have to wait months for the finished product either. Lastly ask about the cost, as this will still have some bearing on your decision, but should not be at the expense of quality or good service.
