When to rent vs. buy a custom suit

Your wedding day is a few months away, but you have yet to purchase your suit, let alone even look at one. Then you think, “Why not just rent one? I’ll only wear it once.” This is a common thought among many grooms. Buying a custom suit may seem expensive, especially if you only plan to wear it on your wedding day. So why not just rent one? You aren’t picky about your clothes, you just want something that fits pretty well. But what about the next time you need a suit last minute and have to rush out and pick one that is ill-fitting? You will wish you had purchased a custom suit. Below we will go through some of the pros and cons of whether to buy a custom suit or rent one, so you can see which option is right for you.

Rent a Suit

The major argument for rental suits is cost. If you know you will only wear it once, and there is no way you will need a suit again, then it makes sense to rent. There may be fit issues, as rental suits are not custom tailored. And the options may not include exactly what you wanted. So you will be forced to compromise on fit and look. Another issue is knowing someone else wore that suit before you, and another person, and another person. But if you don’t mind these issues, then head to the rental shop!

Buy a Custom Suit

Every guy should have a custom tailored suit. Yes, they may seem expensive, but the value you get from a custom suit outweighs the costs. If you work in an office, own a business, plan to have a wedding, or go to any special events, then a custom suit will work for you. Getting your suit customized means a perfect fit, as well as exactly the color, fabric, and shape you envision. Don’t think about the one time cost of the suit, think about it’s value over time. Going to meet a new client with your custom suit will leave a lasting impression that you care about how you present yourself, and your client will take notice.

Why Custom?

Custom tailoring is almost a lost art, but there’s nothing like having a suit designed to your exact specifications and body or wowing other gala goers with a one-of-a-kind suit no other man in the ballroom

I have earned a loyal following among business leaders, executives and major NFL players whose sheer size can create additional measurement challenges. All of them realize the benefits of having their clothes custom-made.

So why custom? Naples is a small town and you don’t want to run into anyone else with the same suit, which is why I only make one suit with each fabric. If you buy a Joseph Wendt custom suit, you won’t see it on anyone else!

I think a lot of men don’t realize the tremendous power of dressing well and being unique. It’s an absolute advantage when you utilize it. I have always said, clothing is psychology. It’s a visual psychology versus a verbal psychology, but it’s totally psychology.

Plus, fit is so important, and it’s hard to get that with a department store suit. It’s so difficult to get that perfect fit with a suit you buy off the rack. That’s another reason, custom is key. I understand that young guys just starting out need a bunch of suits and maybe have to go to Men’s Wearhouse or a department store. If you do have to buy off the rack, make sure you spend time to have it properly tailored.

Joseph Wendt Custom Clothier now offers tailoring services at our Fifth Avenue South store. Tailoring services are available during business hours to assist customers with altering suits and dress shirts, resizing and hemming pants, re-lining jackets or pants, special occasion dresses and more.
