Dear grooms: Before going any further, we at Court House Cleaners want to say congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! We’re sure you’re thrilled, and maybe a little stressed. This is perfectly natural, and as your expert tailor in Cape May County, we’re here to help ease a little of the burden. Here are a few helpful fitting tips to get you started.
Wedding season can cause physical change
We all deal with stress in different ways, and one common way is to eat more of the things we enjoy—frequently referred to as “comfort food.” It’s hard to put a price on a cold beer at the end of a long day, or to adequately describe the relief that comes from collapsing onto the couch with your favorite chips to watch a new episode of your favorite show. Just remember that right now, it’s especially important to strive for moderation. You’ll soon be getting fitted for a tux, and you’ll want to fit into it well when the big day arrives.
Summer can cause weight gain
Summertime itself can cause us to pack on the pounds, as we enjoy more cocktails, attend more parties and spend more time vegging out in the air conditioning. With this in mind, try to plan out some regular physical exercise. Be consistent, and be realistic with yourself about how much you can accomplish. Right now, the most important thing is to just focus on being healthy and staying the same clothing size. Maybe plan some extra walks, do your home’s landscaping yourself or get some weightlifting squeezed in a few times a week. This way, your expert tailor in Cape May County will be able to fit your tux to a T, and you can have confidence it will fit the same on your wedding day.
Get the right fit
Court House Cleaners wants to remind grooms everywhere that the right length is absolutely key for all aspects of your tux. It’s particularly important to ensure that the length of your coat jacket ends at the tip of the thumb. A jacket that’s the correct length will complement your physique.
Another important measurement to be aware of is the length of your sleeve. Make sure the coat sleeve ends one inch above your bottom thumb knuckle. You don’t want to have sleeves that are too short, or you’ll look like your arms are too long for your suit. Get the right fit, and you’ll look incredible.
Give yourself time
Call well in advance so you have plenty of time for your fitting. You might want to come back a couple times if necessary, and now is no time to feel rushed.
