Ordering a custom suit means you can get exactly the style and fit you need, making it easier to impress people in job interviews, on dates and when elbowing them out of the way on the train. If you’re going to all that trouble, don’t go with the crowd and avoid a double-breasted navy option.

Business Insider reported recently that the most popular design from online suit store InStitchU was “navy, 100 per cent wool, and single-breasted with two buttons”. Sounds good, but if you’re going to break away from the herd and have your own suit made, why get one that’s the same as everyone else?
That’s my take, though, in the interests of disclosure, it should be noted that I’ll happily wear suitjamas in public. What are your essential requirements in a suit? Tell us in the comments.
