Invest in Yourself
Why your clothing is an investment, and why your tailor is your best friend. We live in an age where clothing has become "disposable", but it's not a positive change! Not even delving into the mistreatment of humans who work in the factories in the countries manufacturing these items, the quality of the materials and the finished garments is substandard. How many times have you picked up inexpensive clothing only to find it didn't survive the washing machine? Then it goes into the garbage, and into a landfill. This is not a sustainable way to live, folks! Purchasing well-made garments is an investment. Yes, they cost more but they will last you many years! Not only that, but you can justify the small cost of having an experienced tailor, like Daley by the Yard's Jacki Robichaud, alter your clothing to fit you perfectly! You can only make a first impression once, so make sure it's a good one!
Quality clothing makes you look and feel good
People come in all shapes and sizes, yet a lot of cheap clothing is mass produced in a “one shape fits all” manner. Low-quality dress shirts, for example, look terrible on people not shaped a specific way. If a shirt is too loose or tight in the wrong places, you feel vulnerable and uncomfortable, and it shows in your body language. If it fits you well and you’re comfortable, however, you can get a nice confidence boost. Using the same example, quality dress shirts will often come in a variety of cuts, so no matter what shape you are, you’re bound to find one that you feel good wearing. Even if you can’t, you can and should get it fitted to you (more on that later.)
Whether we like it or not, clothing is also a part of our identity. Your clothes can emphasize social status, as well as a certain level of professionalism. A few quality outfits can make you look like a go-getter that takes pride in your appearance. Spending money on quality clothes might seem frivolous if you’re a frugal person, but in some cases you can’t afford to not spend the money, especially if you’re trying to land a job or network with colleagues. Stop by Daley by the Yard and we can ensure that you look and feel great.
