From the moment we came in to his no nonsense, business first office, we knew , we were in the right place.. My man Hugo does exactly what he says he’s going to do, and does it well.
He’s confident, he knows his work and he’s damn good at it.
And the suit... is simply the best suit I’ve ever owned. It fits like a glove and looks even better.
These guys got my wedding that’s for sure.
See you in a little bit guys-
In court today the judge, in front of about 30 lawyers said the following –
I don’t often comment on men’s clothing but Mr. Gdanski that is a very nice suit.
I just moved across the country to pay 30,000 per year in tuition to be a first-year law student. After moving, tuition, and living expenses, spending more money was the last thing on my mind.
I don’t have parents or scholarships that are making my money situation any easier. But my second-hand thrift store suits just weren’t cutting it anymore. I do not own an article of clothing that is worth more than $100. Nearly all of my clothes come from thrift stores. Sure, this method is cheaper, but the consequences show: the fabric is lower quality, the style is older, it’s not as comfortable/breathable, the fit isn’t perfect (and alterations don’t cut it), and it takes a lot of TIME to pull everything together. However, the end result fits well enough. If that’s where you are in your life right now, I understand. No shame in that.
But know that (for many of us) there is a certain point in your life where you just need to spend the money to get (and wear) something of quality. That’s where Made2Measure (M2M Bespoke) comes in. I’ve worn my Made2Measure suit to 3 events now (approx. 10 hours sitting, standing, walking), and I can absolutely assure that there is a huge difference between “well enough” and M2M quality.
I knew I needed a new set of “work” clothes, and I knew it would cost. I wanted to be thorough in my research and I went in with the mindset of seeking one-time quality over a series of quick-fixes. I looked at all my options and M2M came out on top. Nate says they designed their business model to make the purchase a no-brainer for the client. They succeeded. At the end of the day, I purchased a 3-piece suit with a custom fit dress shirt for 1200.
The options fit into a few categories:
(1)Buy a suit off-the-rack. This is going to Moore’s or something comparable. My research showed I could possibly get a 2 piece for 400 (more likely 700). It will be lower quality. It won’t fit as well. If you want alterations, that’s an extra expense of time and money. I crossed this option off.
(2)I could continue buying thrift store suits. This takes way too long to do. If you have the time to browse brick and mortar stores, great. But I didn’t. Again, the end result won’t fit as well, and unless you know your fabrics (I don’t), you’ll likely get a lower quality fabric. And unless you’re a time traveler, the style will be outdated. Maybe you can pull it off. Maybe. Oh! You’ll also have a hell of time finding a matching 2 piece.
(3)You can order a custom suit (Indochina) or from that startup business of your friend-of-a-friend. End result is that you’re sending your measurements (likely) overseas, waiting X weeks, and getting a suit back. You’re looking at about 500-1000 here. My problem with this option is the lack of a person you can ask for advice and feedback. With M2M, you know you have an expert that is friendly, approachable, and very, very informed about fashion. That’s well worth an extra couple hundred bucks.
(4)You can go high-end. I phoned a few places, and the prices shocked me. I think the cheapest I found was in the low 2k. Well out of my price range.
(5)M2M. These guys stood out above all the others. Allow me to gush about why. The price is good. It’s great. 1200 for a 3 piece and custom shirt is an outrageous deal. It’s a lot of money, yes, but it’s well worth the value. You have excellent customer service. They will come meet you when and where it works for you. They’re available to answer questions and offer advice. The end result is amazing. If you’ve never had a custom suit before, it will feel better than you ever thought possible. I promise.
I first met Hugo and Nate when they came by my school for a free sizing and fabric selection. I worked as a professional before law school, so I’ve seen enough guys in suits to know that Hugo and Nate were dressed well above average. When you choose M2M, you’re choosing a team that wears quality fabric, speaks quality fabric, and understands quality fabric. They immediately won me over with their friendliness and charm. There’s something intimidating and elitist about the stereotypical fashionable people of this world. With M2M, you get that precision of knowledge without any of the snootiness. These are real people that really care about finding the right fit for you and your budget. I never felt pressured.
Nate sized me and gave me a quote. I couldn’t commit on the spot, so I asked for some time to consider my options. I spent 3 months shopping around. Once, Nate politely reached out to ask if I needed anything, but other than that professional courtesy, he didn’t nag or pressure me. I considered all my options and went straight back to M2M. Nate resized me just to double check and helped me finalize the order. The order took 4-6 weeks (I think), but I had told Nate it wasn’t urgent, so that doesn’t matter much. Also, the order took longer because I specifically asked for a vegan suit.
I’m vegan and animal rights are important to me. That includes the clothes I purchase. I explained to Nate that I wouldn’t buy anything with horns, pearls, wool, or horse hair (etc). Nate took that request and ran with it. He and Hugo came up with a fabric blend that is 100% vegan. It looks, feels, and moves excellently. Even Nate is surprised by how well it turned out. I hope more people turn to M2M for their vegan suits.
Oh! And before I forget, I also asked Nate about the working conditions for his workers. He assured me he travels there at least once a year, and stays where the clothes are made. Pay and breaks and lifestyle are generous. Of course, I didn’t physically double-check, but I took Nate’s word on it and I trust him. It’s nice to know that M2M considered their worker’s working conditions.
I’ve worn the suit 3 times. On the upside, the suit is damn comfortable, looks great, and feels amazing. On the downside, it’s all of the above and I want to wear it all the time. If I could afford it, I would wear M2M suits for every event. Before I had worn a custom suit, I did not understand how much better custom feels. It really is awesome.
To speak to Nate’s customer service, I found the pants to be a little tight around the thighs. Nate assured me that the pants were properly measured to my body, but was happy to loosen them if I preferred. It’s March now, and since I bike a lot over spring/summer, I figured my thighs would get bigger anyway, so I asked Nate to loosen the pants. He covered the cost and handled the delivery. It’s been so amazingly convenient and perfect.
So ya. There’s my 1200 word review of why you’re making a huge mistake if you purchase a suit from anyone other than M2M.
I’ve been buying custom shirts for years but purchased all my suits from prominent brands and retailers off the rack, thinking the fit was good enough given my average figure. I was introduced to Hugo from a co-worker, and having purchased my first suit from him, I’m confident I won’t be getting suits/blazers off the rack again. Surprising to me was the difference the perfect fit of the pants make. M2M has plenty of fabrics to choose from, the fit is absolutely fantastic, and Hugo provides excellent support and service. Thank you!
After a less than ideal experience walking out of a high-end department store, I serendipitously ran into a friend who had just been married and was raving about Made2Measure.
I got their contact information, gave a call, and the rest is history. Netanel invited me to the store (while also offering to make a house call if easier) to meet and get acquainted.
From the moment we met, it was very clear that Netanel and his staff were dedicated to making my vision a reality. They spoke up only when necessary to voice their professional opinion on how I wanted to build my wedding tux, and otherwise supported me (and encouraged me!) to have a fun time with it. Netanel was incredibly helpful, insightful and respectful from start to finish, and I owe him all the compliments I received on my tux from our guests. I intend to wear it again and again, and will always have him to thank for it. What a phenomenal experience start to finish...made better by solid quality and a very fair price point.
For years I have been buying my clothes from a prominent men's retailer. After trying on my first bespoke suit from M2M, I concluded that I have been paying a premium price for generic service (sales associate more interested in making a sale) and inferior quality (good, but not perfect fit).
A perfect-fitting suit is peerless. Thanks, M2M Bespoke.
I've purchased a couple of suits from M2M in the past and more recently got two shirts. My shirts fit, feel and look great. I generally purchase off-the-rack, but I find that M2M is the only way to get the perfect fit and I will definitely come back again.
Thanks to Hugo and Nate for the excellent service and expertise!
I've purchased a total of 3 suits, 5 dress shirts, 2 belts and 4 pairs of shoes from M2M so far. I was a big skeptic about the whole "made to measure" process having been disappointed by other retailers/tailors in the past. But based on my first order from M2M, I can confidently give you 3 reasons why you SHOULD buy from them AND feel good about your investment in bespoke clothing vs. Off-the-rack.
Reason #1: Hugo.
Part owner, so you know he cares about his reputation, as well as his business. Hugo knows his stuff and made me feel comfortable right from the moment I sat down in his Tycos showroom. He didn't try to "upsell me" or push only high-end fabrics at me; instead he took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for and helped me pick out the colours and fabric that fit my budget and style. I ended up buying more from him, and I can tell you a big part of that is because of how knowledgeable and trustworthy this man is.
Reason #2: Fit > Label
I was big on labels. But discovered an essential truth about men's fashion. From 10 ft out, no one can tell the label of your suit; whether it's designer or not. But they CAN tell when your clothes don't fit. And when you're in the boardroom or giving speeches on stage as often as I do, nobody notices whether you're wearing Armani or Hugo. But they do notice when your jacket's too big, or your pant breaks are too long or short. You want confidence? Start with investing in clothes that fit, right.
Gentlemen (and ladies) - heed my advice; invest in the right fit for your clothes, and give that priority over the label. For me, when I absolutely need it to be just perfect, I'll be coming back to M2M.
Reason #3: Price
I came across M2M by accident. Surfing Yelp and Google, I discovered shops like Garrison, Empire, Indochino, and Harry Rosen (bespoke). I recall being ready to bite the bullet and put down $5K + for a suit, when I happened to stumble upon M2M. I couldn't believe the price: for roughly the same as what I would pay at Brooks Brothers, Hugo Boss or private label Harry Rosen (or similar retailers) I could afford a M2M Bespoke suit. And based on the few reviews I saw on google, yelp and this site, I decided to give it a try; given the price difference I didn't have anything to lose.
Gentlemen, the suit I got was great. It fits like a glove. The colour is perfect; and the detailing is so personal and unique to me. And for roughly the same price as high-end retail where I'm limited in my choices, I can't imagine going back to "off-the-rack" for any of my "must-win" clothes. For this price, I'd rather my clothes fit and be personalized just for me.
Based on my experience with Hugo, prioritizing the right fit over designer labels, and the price point - are 3 reasons why I will be coming back for more.and hopefully, are 3 more reasons for you to try them out for yourself.
Excellent service, most detailed and intricate suit I've ever owned for a reasonable price.
Great Service and Product from M2M. Beautiful 3pc suit looks great and arrived in a couple of weeks, no alterations required!
