I want to make clothing that fits me perfectly mainly for two reasons: comfort and health. How my clothes look is a secondary concern – I can buy clothes to get a certain look, but not ones that fit. I’m convinced that my poor posture for most of my life was made worse because I was hunching my shoulders and arching my lower back to relieve the pressure points caused by poorly fitting clothes. The feel of custom fitted clothes is unbelievable. Even heavy fabric can feel feather light since the weight is distributed evenly. The first time I wore custom made pants they were so comfortable I kept looking down at my legs to check and make sure I hadn’t left the house in my pajamas. It almost inspires me to write a poem. And I hate poetry.
