A good suit should fit you to a tee. That is why fitting is so important. There may be several fittings throughout the process of tailoring a suit. The first fitting is where the basic fit of the suit is obtained, and is especially important for first time customers. It allows the customer to get an idea of how the clothes will feel on them, more or less like obtaining a mould for subsequent orders by the same customer. This stage may be skipped for return customers. Subsequent fittings allow for required changes or alterations, before the final touches are added to the apparel.
