This February 14th, give your man something out of the box, a gift that truly fits his physique and style – tailored clothing.
If you already know an excellent haberdasher, great! Send him the chocolates and flowers. If you don’t have a tailor, here are several clothiers that offer shirts, pants, sport coats and suits that will make every guy look their very best.
PointClickTailor.com makes online shopping and tailoring a breeze. One, two, three, perfect fit. The website instructions walk you through obtaining perfect measurements.
I’m impressed with the selection of fabrics and tailoring details that you’ll find in the lining, pockets, buttons, cuffs and lapels. Their Bronx style three-piece suit in medium blue pinstripe is perfect for the office, formal occasions or date night. I also admire their Bayberry grey and lavender check two-piece suit. It’s 100% wool, has a Snugtex Waistband inside the pants and a roll-out chest pocket.
Match your suits with a selection of high-quality shirts. I’m a fan of the Alsace pink check and their Baronof light blue whicker check shirts.
These garments can be monogrammed or inscribed.

Shirts galore and a select smattering of ties and sweaters, Jeremy Argyle NYC offers button-ups (or downs) that can be worn un-tucked with jeans or tucked-in for the office. The details on each shirt are subtle and interesting and not flashy or gaudy. This company launches a new garment practically every week.
Style and tailoring influenced by everything from Indie films to on-the-go city life.
You have two options for a perfect fit. Swing by their Soho shop in New York City or follow their measurement scale online: http://www.jeremyargyle.com.

Entrepreneur, Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theatres and shark on the TV show Shark Tank, knows a good thing when he sees it…and wears it. Perhaps that’s why he invested in Fashion Metric.
This online shopping experience lets men browse the virtual store without worrying about size charts. It also puts their shopping on auto-pilot by having monthly picks and selections delivered directly to home or office — it’s brainless shopping without the pressure of sales people, dank changing rooms or lines at the cashier.
The metric system is based on clothing that already fits and lists several designer brand names to use as your gauge. I think it’s one of the easiest ways to find the proper fit for casual clothing.

You and your sweetheart are now a perfect fit.
