One cool thing about crafting custom clothing is often we get to take the spark of a client's idea and run with it.
Maggie and Mark wanted a sleek green custom velvet tux jacket for Mark for their October wedding near Tucson. Naturally we were like YESSSSS as we've done green for clients before, but not such a visually memorable piece like Mark's green velvet number. Add the fact that Mark is 6'7" with the build of an NBA small forward and we knew that we had our work cut out for us in the fit department.
Luckily, measurements for Mark were pretty spot on in relation to the first fitting. We had a few tweaks to make as far arm length (again, Mark also has the REACH of an NBA small forward), etc., but there was very little in the way of tailoring to get it right.
I mean, could you get more 'fall wedding' than the above pic?!! The finished product we think is one of our best pieces so far. But more importantly, the groom and bride were super happy with the final pics. And, as we all well know, weddings are all about the pics ; )
