Custom Tailored Suits that Give Back to Charity

June 24th, 2015 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Sometimes it feels like the days of the old custom tailored suit is going the way of the passenger pigeon. While back in the day you could get a suit or sports coat that was perfectly adjusted to your exact size and proportions, today it seems like we’re all relegated to take what’s off the rack or get so-called “tailoring” from a department store employee. But real tailoring, of course, is as much as art as it is a science.

Privélege is a new online clothing company based in New York City that specializes in made-to-measure clothing. You first select from some very nice looking options for suits, tuxedos, sports coats, and trousers. Then, they walk you (and a friend or family member) through the specifics of how to measure yourself. Through the magic of modern technology you can submit your measurements and your garment will be customized specifically for you.

What’s very cool about this is that they’re not making alterations–they’re designing and constructing your clothing to your specifications. Here’s the Vanderbilt, a custom-made Italian suit (although the dude here should probably put on some socks if he doesn’t want to catch a cold).

Privélege gives back 10% of all net-profits from their custom suit line to charities supporting underprivileged communities in the city. Designers, Kingsley Duah and Mario Rijfkogel are leading the charge for “purpose-driven fashion for the stylish do-gooder.” Their motto is “Look Good. Feel Good. Do Good.”
