Custom The Dapper Navy Double Breasted Suit by Dragon Inside
In a recent post, I mentioned that I will be doing a few reviews of some custom suit brands and their products. The first up brand up to bat for review is Dragon Inside.
Custom suits, custom pants, custom waistcoats, custom tuxedos and accessories (ties, cummerbunds and fabric swatches). The fabrics come from UK and Italian mills (current fabrics are 100% superfine merino wool 110s, 120s and 130s). Blazers are all fully canvassed and not fused (which is a huge plus, in terms of longevity/quality of fabrics). Turn around time for ordering to arrival at your door is 20 days.
The Custom Details:
In terms of the blazer you can customize your lapels, jacket vents, button style (two, three, single or double-breasted, jacket lengths, a few selections of solid color linings, functional buttons of sleeves, functional boutonniere, ticket pocket, slanted pockets, pen pocket, pick stitching, jetted pockets (no flaps) and a flower loop.
In regard to pants, the option of pleated or non-pleated exists. You can also add/remove belt loops, cuffs or back pockets.
Men’s Style Pro’s Opinion:
The fit of this suit is spot on. The only alteration I had done was having the legs tapered from the knee down (which I often do to trousers). One of the great things I like about Dragon Inside is that they do all of their measurements in centimeters (which leads to a more accurate fit). Moving forward, I would like to see more fabric and pattern options, lining, button and contrast stitching options. Also, the ability to select a half or quarter-lined option would be superb.
