Fitting In: Trumaker Makes Custom Easy

fitting trumaker makes custom easy tru
When you are investing in a good suit, or even a good pair of jeans, the most important factor is how well it fits. While most of us don’t have the time or the money to customize all of our suits, a new company is allowing men across the nation to customize their shirts. Trumaker is revolutionizing an age old tradition, all while working around your schedule.

Made to measure, or as they like to call it “built to fit” was previously thought of as something out of reach for the average dudes, but today there are new ‘e-tailors’ launching almost weekly. Fine by us.

Trumaker’s team is composed of skilled craftsman who are waiting to help you create shirts you’ll want to wear everyday.

So how does it work? Go to their website and enter your information – then they’ll get in touch with you and let you know who can hook you up. Trumaker is based in San Francisco, but you don’t have to be. The brands “outfitters” live in different parts of the US. Once the two of you get in touch, an “outfitter” will come to you – to your home – or even your office. You and your new friend will sit down, look through fabric swatches and start taking measurements.

According to Trumaker this will only take about half an hour, which is great because if you think about it, it takes that long to find the right fit in a department store anyways.

Trumaker will then build your first shirt. The perfect shirt. If you don’t love it, they will handle alterations until you are satisfied.

Now you know your perfect size, so you can go to their website, email, or even call Trumaker up to customize future shirts. It’s like shopping at a store that only carries size: You.

For the holiday season Trumaker is sweetening the deal by offering gifts (scarves, totes, shoe bags) with the purchase of any gift card – the bigger the card, the bigger the gift. A perfect idea for your dad, brother, best friend, boss, yourself.

Your Complete Guide To Black Tie Attire with Tuxedo Tips

It’s finally happened. For the first time, or the first time in a very long time, you’ve received an invitation with the words “Black Tie,” or “Formal Attire,” engraved into that creamy white paper. Whether it’s a wedding, a charity gala, or a political reception, this is the one time when what has become an almost universal casual dress code is thrown out the window, and all those Society (with a capital S) rules from the 19th-century kick in.
The host or hostess of a formal event has chosen to go this route because they want a very controlled, perfect event, so this is not the time to place yourself in the sartorial spotlight. We men actually get off pretty easy for formal events: Although we’re expected to be well-groomed, dressed appropriately, and on our best behavior, we don’t have to go to nearly the trouble that women do.
We’ve gathered all the tips you’ll need to pull off your formal wardrobe for the day: we’ll leave you to learn all the rest of the proper comportment and etiquette that a truly formal event requires.

The global pandemic has upended the fashion industry, leaving no facet of it untouched – from how clothes are made, distributed, sold and, of course – as all of us will have experienced recently – even affecting the choices we make on how to dress (hello, lockdown athleisure).

But the health crisis has also further exposed what we already knew: That the current fashion system and how it operates continue to fail us and the environment. So, now that it’s time to dress up again, it might be worth reconsidering our own role and the personal impact this has on the vicious clothing manufacturing cycle.
