Black Lapel, found online at BlackLapel.com, is a website created for people who are interested in expressing their own style through the online design of their own custom made suits, shirts, and accessories for men of all means, shapes, and sizes.
Customers who are interested in buying a custom fitted suit at a well respected retailer such as Jos A Banks, Brooks Brothers, or from a personal tailor, it is not unusual to expect to spend upwards of $1,000.
But new websites such as Black Lapel, Indochino, and Modern Tailor hope to change this. Black Lapel says that you can choose your favorites from a selection of fabrics, fits, and details that help you express your own personal flare.
Once you have made these decisions, you must then submit your specific measurements. The website provides you with a short video which walks you through the measurement process step by step so that a friend can easily determine your measurements accurately.
After you have submitted your order, it will be delivered within four weeks to your house with their free worldwide shipping. Customers who would like to repeat their orders can do so with just a few clicks after they’ve created an account.
If you receive your suit or other made to measure items and they do no fit correctly, Black Lapel offers something they call the Flawless Fit Promise. This promise says that their customers have up to $75 worth of alterations credits for suits which require alterations and $50 worth of alterations credits for all other items.
Customers who would like a professional opinion on the fit of their suit can send a picture to BlackLapel.com and have their professionals assess whether or not they would recommend changes to your items.
Customers that are interested in further savings opportunities can sign up for their email list to get advanced notice of sales or coupon offers.
