Ask Your Expert Tailor
This is going to be my first experience with custom clothing. What should I expect?
When you visit with Ahmed’s Custom Clothiers, we want you to feel relaxed, comfortable and confident about building your new wardrobe. We like to learn about you and your personality and what makes you feel good. Typically, we will start with versatile basics and slowly build out to seasonal fabrics with more personality. You can wear a solid blue or grey suit to the office three times a week and nobody will notice, but your co-workers will call you out if they keep seeing those purple pinstripes. Also, don’t worry about those suits you already have in your closet unless you love them and they fit and look extremely well. Ninety percent of men and women stop wearing their off-the-rack suits after going custom. If you already have a strong base and are looking for something specific, don’t be afraid to bring a picture. Our goal is to make you happy.
What can you do for me that a regular store doesn’t offer?
A retail store carries a standard inventory, and that’s all they can offer you. Whenever you buy from a retail outlet, you are always buying ‘off the rack’. At Ahmed’s Custom Clothiers everything is custom tailored. This is our only business. It’s how we can create fully custom made suits, shirts, pants and coats in the exact style and fabric of your choice. In addition, we offer you the following premium features at no extra charge.
- Hand-embroidered initials or your full name inside the jacket
- Hand-picked and matched linings and buttons
- Fully canvassed jackets
- Functional button holes on sleeves
- Inside arm shields
- Hand-cut, hand turned collars
- Generous tails
Is my clothing going to be made locally or do you send it out?
Every thing we do is created right here in Houston, Texas. If you can’t come to us then we will come to you at your convenience. We have thousands of fabrics, colors, and styles in house to present limitless possibilities for your initial design. After we assess your sizing with different measurements, you can choose the exact style and materials for your custom clothing made locally by expert tailors.
How long does it usually take for you to make a custom suit
Perfection should never be rushed so we want you to know each step that is involved in your custom clothing. After you select your fabric, the next step is pattern cutting. Then we add trimmings and assemble the garment for fitting. Once your suit is almost completed, you can expect a comprehensive fitting process to make sure that the suit moves with you in every angle.
How often do I dry clean my suits?
Ahmed’s Custom Clothiers recommends that you dry clean your suits every five to six months depending on the wear. In some cases it would need to be done sooner or if the slacks or jacket is stained, in which case, we advise you dry clean the whole suit at the same time so as to keep a uniform look in the fabric.
Is the price all inclusive or will there be any additional charges?
Custom bespoke suits complement your unique features, which make you look and feel great. When wearing something of quality, not only will you save costs over time as the garment will last you longer, you will also enjoy wearing your clothing, which will really bring down the cost per use.
