Many men shy away from custom suits because they fear the expense or the time commitment, and opt instead for OTR (off the rack) suits at a department store or online. What they do not realize is that spending hours in a department store trying on one OTR suit after another (or more annoying: mailing things back that don’t fit) can be more time-consuming, more stressful, and only marginally cheaper than having something custom made.
That being said, not all custom suit makers are created equal, which is why Christopher James Menswear proudly carries Coppley, one of the most reputable custom suit and sport coat makers in the business. Coppley, based in Canada, has been in the biz since 1883 and possesses an impressive supply of more than 400 luxury fabrics from around the globe.
Coppley’s Spring 2014 Collection is especially noteworthy, especially for those leery of custom clothing. The collection focuses on neutrals: greys, blues, and tans, which are essential for a versatile, more-bang-for-your-buck, wardrobe.
Fabric-wise, if you like Italian textiles, then you will like this collection. But no worries if you don’t–as mentioned, Coppley has more than 400 fabrics for you to choose from.
As for fit, this season’s collection is all about the slim silhouette, à la Mad Men, but can of course it be cut however you want. For more on the current slim suit trend, read our blog post on the topic.

We have expert staff and tailors to help assist you in the custom suit process, so you will save time and avoid stress. (Insider tip: you can also sip on a glass of wine as you shop…Did the custom suit process just get a whole lot more appealing? Thought so.)
