A custom-tailored suit creates a memorable impression when worn during job interviews or Civil War reenactments. Sport standout threads with today’s Groupon: for $399, you get a custom suit package from R. J. Reese Custom Clothier (a $1,310 total value). This Groupon does not include the $50 shipping fee. The package includes:
- Two custom super-150-wool suits (a $550 value each)
- Two custom cotton-silk-blend shirts (a $105 value each)
The experienced, mobile tailors at R. J. Reese Custom Clothier craft custom-made garments to match each customer’s personal style and body type. Tailors arrive at the client’s home or office to consult on stylistic choice and take 20 physical measurements to ensure a pristine fit all over the body. As clients flip through different colored and patterned swatches, tailors share pro tips to avoid clashing fabrics or bringing back long-dead polyester fads. With measurements in hand, meticulous stitchers construct garments to clients’ specifications and incorporate personal flourishes such as monograms and surgeon’s cuffs before pressing the finished fabrics. Four to six weeks after ordering, completed suits and shirts arrive on doorsteps in garment bags with an accompanying garment brush, and customers may request alterations to fine-tune the fit or accommodate newly sprouted wings.
