1. Not Starching Your Shirt.

The shirt you wear with a custom suit can be extremely important. You don't want everyone paying attention solely to the wrinkles in your shirt.

But since you are wearing a custom suit, you clearly do want to show your best self. In this case, it may be best to starch your dress shirts when you iron them. Starching keeps the fabric of the shirt shift, making the shirt look like you just bought it.

2. Using the Pockets of Your Suit.

Aside for the occasional pocket square, you should avoid using the pockets of your custom suit.

Custom suits are designed to fit you closely, the pockets often laying along your body. They aren't designed to be loose and baggy like regular pockets. Using the pockets can stretch them out and ruin the overall fitting of the suit.

A Well-Fitting Suit is Our Priority

Nathon Kong's goal is to make you a custom suit that you feel confident in. Perfect fit is important to that feeling, but an emotional connection to what you wear can also inspire confidence.
