We are living in a high-tech age and this has made us lazy, very lazy. Shopping sites have grown leaps and bounds. Thou I never expected that to happen in a country like India where INTERNET is still emerging and people are not use to shopping online, however youth has accepted it with both hands and so have the conservative and cautious once.
Talking about shopping and not talking about clothing how is that possible. If you see and observe, there is always a discomfort when you think of buying clothing online talking for a man’s perspective, we are always use to the cut piece materials which we generally give to our tailors for stitching thou slowly and steadily the trend seems changing in India.
When I feel the need of buying trousers and shirts, I generally prefer branded clothing because now I am very much use to the size, variety of colors, patterns so on and forth, thou there are many sizes available and I always find it difficult to get the perfect size shirt and trouser of MY FIT.
Some common issues I have in ready-made shirts:
1) Shoulder Size is fix and if someone has a broad shoulder and lean body then have to take a plus size.
2) Generally straight fit not suiting body types.
3) Having a tall upper half body structure, I always have to buy a plus size just to get the length and get it altered.
Some common issues I have in ready-made Trousers:
1) Waist size – as per standard size either you get 32 or 34 – What about 33? Tailors alter fees needs to be added with every purchase of my trousers.
2) Trousers general come in straight type fit, and some offer slim fits, but I like a comfort upper half and narrow lower half of the trouser, which again I get it altered.
So, what is the solution of finding the right fit of shirts and trousers? Well recently good folks at indiblogger gave me the opportunity to discover Van Heusen’s MYFIT online boutique for formal shirts, trousers and suits with a voucher.
Without any delays I went to my nearest Van Heusen outlet to know more about the MYFIT concept, I met the staff and they suggest me to try out some sizes in shirts and trousers, after trying out few sizes the staff suggested me the perfect size, shirt – 38 tall fit and trouser 33 snug fit, knowing all that I felt like wow, now no one can stop me from looking like a corporate stud.
