I do, mostly because it's extremely difficult finding clothes that fit me (I'm 5'11.5" and 133 lbs.).
Even slim fit shirts can fit loosely on me. Usually what I've found is that I can buy cheap shirts (like dress shirts under $10) and because they fit so well, they look more expensive than they really are.
So I tend to go for fit rather than expensive clothes (they don't look expensive if they're baggy). I usually have my tailor give me a pretty slim cut to my clothes.
I would if I could afford it, but I do get clothes altered to fit me the way I want them to. I did try an online tailor once, where you can pick what sort of cut, color, fabric, etc. and fill in your measurments, but it wasn't a particularly good fit so I can't say I'm in any hurry to use them again.
Yes I use to. I even had flannel & wool shirts tapered. Love that spoke tailoring.
I always had my close starched & pressed. Nothing better then a pair of jeans right off the hanger with that razor sharp crease. Nice & crisp too. Same with my shirts heavy, heavy, heavy on the starch.
The Taylor hated to cut the Pendleton shirts. I wanted that fit you're talking about so I always had to tell him to cut away
Huh. I've never considered that .because I too have troube finding clothes that fit right I don't lik emto baggy or too tight but it's tough with my height (6.3). I'm gonna look for a Taylor in my city
