THE VALUE OF CUSTOM CLOTHING
Now that you have decided on a style upgrade reflecting who you are and what you stand for, it is likely that questions will arise about the next steps on your style journey. Here’s a quick guide describing what to expect from this unique process. We offer custom tuxedos, jackets, suits, shirts, trousers, and more.
1. Request an initial consultation
Taking a leap and getting to know La Tigre might be the first step in a long-term relationship with your style consultant. Select the time slot that is most convenient for you using our website, and visit us at 1509 Ponce de Leon Ave, San Juan PR 00909. We are located within the Ciudadela complex, at the Plaza Level, next to Pueblo.
An initial consultation is especially important as a means for us to calmly understand who your character, and therefore your style needs. This engagement session is designed to help you familiarize yourself with the products and services offered by La Tigre, lead times and price ranges throughout various categories.
Our made-to-measure custom suit prices begin at $795.00 (100% wool in a wide range of fabrics). We also offer a Premium Collection featuring fabrics from some of the very best Italian and British mills starting at $1,150.00. For our most exquisite clients, we offer bespoke tailoring, completely hand-made, with fabrics from mills such as Vitale Barberis Canonico and Drago, starting from $1,650.00 & up.
We can deliver your garments personally, or ship them complementarily.
2. Designing the right garment & accomplishing your style goals
After having gotten to know you and understanding your style needs, our consultants will begin to present you with fabric options from different places, quality, and price.
Once you have decided on the perfect fabric, several other decisions regarding style and personalization will be made with our guidance. These include jacket style (one, two, three buttons, single-breasted or double-breasted, etc.), pocket style, pants style (flat front, single pleat, double pleat, triple pleat, etc.), and other personalization options such as monogramming, labeling, lining, and premium real horn buttons.

3. Measuring and creating your style profile
Fit is the most important aspect of carrying a beautiful garment gracefully. We will take about forty different measurements, and photograph you from three different angles. This will help us review your visit at the time of communicating your order to our master tailors. We kindly ask for sincerity in sharing current weight at the time of measuring, as we cannot be responsible for severe weight fluctuations in the period while garments are being made.
4. First fitting of your new garment
Once your garments have been received at our store, we will contact you to arrange a fitting session, which takes between 15-20 minutes. Often, garments fit our customers perfectly at once, but occasionally minor alterations are needed in order to guarantee the perfect fit and drape. We perform these alterations at no extra cost to our customers and usually deliver the final garment within 3-4 business days. We can deliver your garments personally, or ship them complementary.
If you are out of the Island and need to use a local tailor, we ask that you send us 3 pictures of the needed alterations (wearing the garment). Upon receipt of a paid invoice, we will issue a credit on your account for the value of the alterations.
5. Completion & Delivery
It is an immense pleasure for us to deliver each completed garment. Once you discover the positive sensation that comes with looking great and feeling like a winner in quality clothing made specifically for you, and designed with your input, you may never go back to ready-made pieces, and visit La Tigre periodically. Just remember to book your appointment as a “current customer”.

Remember, dressing well is a form of good manners. It’s a war out there, every day, choose to be a classy/well-dressed warrior. You will see that with time, the world opens up for a man with great taste. And that improvement will become contagious to those around you, prompting you to apply your newly acquired principles to other areas of your life, such as people, places, habits, hobbies and general well-being.
A life lived in fear is a life half lived. Do not limit yourself to the mediocrity of the group that surrounds you. Dare to be unique. Step out of your head, and into the best version of yourself with help from La Tigre.

THE MADE-TO-MEASURE PROCESS
Let’s face it, when you shop at most international chains you are mostly paying for branding. Chains producing garments for massive distribution are likely to be publicly owned and do not have yours, or mother earth’s interest at heart, only their stockholder’s. Hence a lack of transparency regarding production practices such as Quality Control, human rights violations, and poor waste disposal practices.
Opting for custom clothing from La Tigre exposes you to a wide realm of benefits, and aligns perfectly with the notion of only shopping for what you need, rather than the most you can get at a discount while keeping you from taking into account key elements such as quality, fit, and customization options.
