Bespoke Vs. Made-to-Measure

This infographic from Executive Image Consulting provides a great cheat sheet about the differences of bespoke and made-to-measure outfits. Bespoke refers to custom men’s suits, often handmade, and generally quite expensive. Made-to-measure is not quite bespoke but also not ready-to-wear (outfits you buy pre-made, such as in a store).

Made-to-measure garments feature some amount of tailoring and personalization, though not nearly the amount of bespoke. Bespoke offers almost limitless options for customization, which is why the prices can get very high. If you are looking for something custom, but a little less pricey, then made-to-measure offers customization up to a point. Learn more about the differences and similarities to these two tailoring methods from the infographic.

Men’s Shoe Style Guide

Buying the right men’s shoe for your outfit is a challenge. How do you pick the right color? Or the proper style? What about socks? This infographic by GroomU illustrates dress, casual, athletic shoes and boots. It also covers shoe care, choosing a color, and socks. When it comes to choosing a color, be sure to get brown shoes for neutral color clothes. Wear black shoes with black, deep, or rich color outfits. They recommend not to wear novelty socks, but a bit of color in your outfit is not a bad thing.

This infographic by Famous Outfits encourages men to choose texture-rich clothing with an earth toned palette that can be easily layered for warmth.
