Customer preferred designs make up final product. Customer’s choice of coat lapel width and custom shirt collar size make for precise customer expectations on suit.
Measurements for custom suits are important and used to make designs which form a complete suit. Measurements help to know arm width, neck and leg size and torso length. Critical measurement points include body posture with elevated arms. They help make suit designs with right fit and natural motion.
