Pursuit Ready Made Suits
Pursuit is the “newbie” in Columbus when it comes to mens suits. Nate DeMars started Pursuityourself after he found that finding a modern slim-fit suit in Columbus was not an easy task.
The word is that he decided to do his MBA business model on a modern suit store where young students could purchase these slim-fitting suits.
Another issue was that it was painful to shop at most of the mens suit stores around town because the service at these suit stores was unreliable and unprofessional.
His model was to open a store selling cheap suits to college students while providing good customer service and a good supply of slim modern suits. Most importantly these suits are affordable for college students.
Made to Measure Suits
It appears that Pursuit has more recently entered the mens custom suit niche as well. While we can recommend Pursuityourself for their inexpensive suits to young professionals and college students who are unable to justify the expense for a Alphasuit custom made suit, we do not recommend purchasing a made to measure suit from them or any other retail store.
Why? The Bespoke suit business is a business that takes many years of training to become an expert. Most custom suits are purchased from companies who focus primarily on custom clothing and sell all of their clothing direct to the consumer at their home or office.
The sales consultants who work for companies like, Tom James Co., Balani Custom Clothiers and others have been highly trained in how to measure and fit mens suits.
With made to measure clothing it is not simply about taking measurements. It’s about knowing what to do with those measurements that gives the customer a great fitting suit.
It takes many years of experience and training to be able to communicate to the tailor houses not only the correct measurements but the issues pertaining to each customers body that mat effect he fit of the suit.
A good custom clothier will know and understand the patterns that the tailor house uses and how to manipulate the measurements and give instructions to achieve the perfect fit.
