1. You can re-use it after your wedding.
Underneath the accessories, a suit is a suit is a suit.
Re-purposing your wedding suit is easy. Simply tailor your wedding suit in basic colours like grey, black or navy. Too boring? Dress it up for your big day with accessories, such as a fresh or dried flower corsage, and a matching pocket square, or even a vest with a different texture. You’d be surprised at how these details can transform your entire look.
Once you remove these accessories, the suit goes back to being a perfectly good work suit, one that you can wear over and over, down through the years.
2. It fits you, and only you.

Ever worn an ill-fitting suit? It cuts your body length awkwardly, makes you look bigger or shorter than you really are, and may feel uncomfortable to move around in. Tailored suits remove that problem from the equation – since it’s crafted for your unique body shape alone. You may also alter the fit until you are happy with the way it looks.
3. Renting a suit isn’t exactly cheaper.
Renting a suit is cheaper than tailoring one – or so you think.
If you do the math, renting actually costs more than getting one tailored. (cost of suit divided by number of uses.)Type of Suit Cost No. Of Uses Cost Per Use Rental Suit $150 – $300 1 $150 – $300 Tailored Suit (CYC 1st Tier) $920 2 x a year x 10 years= 20 $920 divided by 20 = $46 Tailored Suit (CYC 1st Tier) $920 5 x a year x 10 years= 50 $920 divided by 50 = $18.40 Tailored Suit (CYC 2nd Tier) $1200 2 x a year x 10 years = 20 $1200 divided by 20 = $60 Tailored Suit (CYC 2nd Tier) $1200 5 x a year x 10 years = 50 $1200 divided by 50 = $24
Making the best impression on your wedding day = Priceless
These calculations are done based on the premise of a suit lasting 10 years. With proper care, a tailored suit can last even longer than 10 years – it’s more likely that you’ll get bored of the suit or grow out of its fit, instead of wearing it out.
