Custom Suits & Sports Coats In Phoenix

Custom Suits and Sports Coats are made with some of the finest fabrics
Q. Contrary believes that a custom suit will do more than make you look good, it will make you feel good, too. Having a suit that is tailored to your lifestyle and your physique can raise one from the masses of generic fashion to the height of individual style and self-confidence.

Fabric, styling and fit are essential to consider when choosing custom suiting, and Mary will be there to help you every step of the way, taking the time to get to know you, your lifestyle, your likes and dislikes. She will walk you through all the important decisions both large and small from selecting the fabric and pattern to the style, lapels, pockets, hem, silhouette and even the buttons for your unique suit or jacket.

Sport coats are a great option for a gentleman that doesn’t need to dress in a suit every day. A sport coat can appear to look like a suit in some cases but does not have a matching trouser. Don’t confuse them with a blazer, however. Worn in a similar fashion, a blazer will have a metallic button and will likely be a solid navy or black in wool or cashmere. Both add versatility to an assembled wardrobe, and many options are available in lighter weight jacketing for summer and likewise heavier fabric for winter and fall. Further, in today’s casual environments, the “jacket and jeans” look has become increasingly popular.

Rest assured that Mary is acutely aware that for those new to custom menswear, the number of options to consider may cause stress and frustration. That’s why she tries to make things as simple as possible, guiding you through the whole process. She realizes that when you invest in premium custom suits and separates, you’re doing more than just buying an outfit. You’re making a significant long-term investment not only in your wardrobe, but also in your own confidence, professionalism and style.

The Custom Suit Fitting Process

Fabric, Styling and Fit are essential to consider when choosing a new suit.
FABRIC

Q. Contrary uses some of the best fabrics available including Lori Piana, Scabal and Gladson. These luxury fabrics are not only beautiful, but provide comfort, performance, breathability and years of enjoyment. Made from the world’s finest raw materials, they include textiles and fabrics from the best Italian and British mills. Choose from luxury tropical suiting that can be worn year-round to merino wool, wool flannel, blends, cashmere and even vicuna. Some fabrics also incorporate a bit of stretch for added comfort. Fabric designs and patterns range from elegant contemporary in fresh vibrant colors to classic designs and colors.

If you are just beginning your wardrobe or refreshing the basics, it is wise to invest in solid navy, dark grey and other versatile colors. Try to avoid the flashy seasonal suits if you are looking for wardrobe basics. In a four-season climate, choose a lighter weight wool fabric. Jackets can be half-lined if you are often hot or fully lined if you wear your jacket for warmth. As a rule of thumb, buy the best fabric you can afford. It will always serve you well.

STYLING
At Q. Contrary, styling for custom suits and jackets is all about what our customers want. Mary believes that the styling of a suit will send a powerful message about who you are and your personal brand. To that end, she will guide you through the whole process, helping you decide whether you want a suit that looks more modern and fashion forward or traditional and conservative.

The devil really is in the details, and Mary will help you make the right choices for all the important details both big and small. Do you want peak or notch lapels? Are your jacket pockets angled or straight? Should you choose a bold or a quiet lining? Do you want a break in the pants, and do you want a narrow or wider pant leg? Mary will assist you in making all these decisions.

FIT
Your initial private consultation is all about obtaining clarity for both you and Mary. She wants to get to know you: your lifestyle, profession and what you want your personal style to say about you.

Fitting a customer for a suit can be very challenging. However, Q. Contrary’s method of using try-on garments, measuring tape, digital imaging and a few of your own personal garments give Mary more information than she needs to get the preferred fit. In fact, over 30 measurements will be taken to ensure that your suit fits perfectly – in your waist, the width and length of your pant legs, the pant rise, chest, length of the jacket and sleeves. In addition, Q. Contrary guarantees that you will be 100% satisfied and will work with you until you are.

Privacy First, always

I have been fortunate to work with high-profile clients, and I remain committed to protecting the integrity of their privacy.
For clients that prefer the highest level of privacy during fitting appointments, I offer in-home or after-hours sessions at my store. All of your measurements are taken by me personally. 

During fittings, the photos I need to collaborate with my tailors are always taken from the shoulders down to prevent identification, and unless you provide me with your explicit consent, I will not share any photos for promotional reasons. 

Call me old-fashioned, but I also refuse to use cloud-based tools for my client records to avoid unwanted eyes on their information. Any personal information is stored on a private device and securely kept on premise.
