GET SMART BEFORE YOU SHOP
Men's wear is available in three basic categories, and understanding these can go a long way in helping the groom make the best choice to suit his style, and pocket.
Ready-to-wears are factory-made in standardised sizes and quality. Even though they offer a lesser degree of control to the customer, it is by far the most budget friendly option.
Made-to-measure menswear, on the other hand, is produced from an adjusted pattern block where patterns are not made for the customer, but rather, stored patterned pieces are assembled together to match the customers' need. Made-to-measure clothes are capable of providing the perfect fit.
Bespoke offers a man full control! Literally made from scratch, they are individually patterned and crafted for the customer and are known to fit flawlessly. Needless to say, the exclusivity of bespoke clothing makes it the most expensive of the lot.
One of the pioneers in men's fashion in the country, Zurhem designs are perfectly geared to a man's needs.
