I like ready made clothes and always interested in buying it. My wife wish to buy dressing materials and give it to the tailor to stitch it as per her size. I am lazy in this sort, don't have the patience to buy a material and went to the tailor place to stitch it, so i prefer ready made clothes. What about you?

i'm so jealous of you. right, there are a lot of ready-make clothes with various design out there, but they mostly don't sell one in my size. i hate it the most when i'm out shopping, and found a design or color that I like, but i can't have it in my size. Ok, i'm stating here that i wear XXL. Period.

The owners of ready made cloth stores in my hometown are my friends and I often visit their shops.They show to me ready made dresses that,in their opinion,would suit me.I have no objection in buying them.The only thing that disturbs me is whether they would fit me or not.I go to their dressing room and try them,but can't be certain.In fact,I am not conscious about my dresses.So I often take my sister or my niece with me to help me in choosing a particular dress.

Hi vp, Ready made dresses have its own pros and cons. As of today if I want to get a churidar kurta / salwar kameez, the variety I’ll get in sleeveless or the style which doesn’t suit my figure. Again, I am very slim trim so I also need to look for something which is just fit for me. I do find few good stores where the ready made dresses suit me in some shopping malls, you know they are always with a higher price tag. Instead if I get it tailor made, I get a special satisfaction and fitting too. For jeans & tops, I don’t go to the tailor, they are available as ‘ready to use’ but again I’m very choosy when it comes to western. However, for office, I only prefer sari or salwars and no jeans, so it’s not a big issue. In my family, we buy ready made for the children and my husband too prefers ready made shirts but mostly stitches his trousers/pants.

Hello Vidhyaprakash, When I used to wear western outfits like pants and skirts with tops I used to buy it ready-made, but I never liked the fitting of ready-made salwar kameez. It never fitted me properly so I have to get it stitched. It is such a pain to first select the material and the design and then give it to the boutique tailor. Then she takes around 20 days to stitch it. Then my mother goes to the boutique to pick up the suits and then I try the suits which always need some or the other alteration. Either I again have to send the suits to the tailor or my mother does the required alteration and make them fit for me to wear them. A big thanks to mom!

Actually though i am fond of the ready made, from childhood till reaching to my fourteen, ready made cloths were not matching and comfortable to me due to my steel body. Yes i do like to wear only the ready made cloths. An idea behind it is it is very easy to wear immediately after purchase, no waiting period from a tailor, no worry for the mistakes of a tailor,a vast choice to select and fitting is perfect as per your number.

I totally agree with you in all the respect. In my childhood i was very weak so not a single ready made garments was fit for me. Even shopkeepers use to advice to my parents not to waste money and better get it stitched for me. Right from ageing 30+ i was ready to wear any ready made cloths. And now i had a habbit to wear ready mades only. Because we have a large no of variety over here to chose and most important there is no waiting period. The moment you come home with new purchase you can wear it immediately. Buying a appropriate color,size,length cloth, then go to a tailor, request him for an early delivery, then he will show his importance and will deny to give before at least fifteen days. Some times we use to get the delivery after our important occasion for which that dress is required. All these troubles are vanished if you prefer to wear ready made cloths and more over it is definitely cheaper than stitched one.

In my drawer, except for a couple of pants, the rest are all ready made clothes. While a tailor one will definitely suits you better, the hassle of going to the shop, have your measurements taken, select the type of fabric, design and color, that is too much of a trouble.

Hi friend, I too prefer ready made cloths. They could be bought at reasonable prices from the market. There we could find ready made cloths of different styles. So we could have a good selection too. By giving dressing materials to the tailor to be stitched it takes a long time and causes wastage of money as the tailor ask for an extra one or two meters of cloth than they really need.

My sister is five years older than me and she is gifted at needle work and making clothes. In her younger days she often made pattern and created new clothing. She made me a lovely pair of denim black trousers and unlike shop bought one they fitted me perfectly. I was sad to get them stolen off a washing line at a backpackers hostel in Cairns, Australia. Now my sister is married with four children she has less time for clothes making. She always looks well dressed and takes much effort with the clothing that she wears. I tend to buy ready made clothes from my favorite shops. I have particular color sense. I buy a particular size and like an elastic waist on a skirt and trousers. In India, Thailand and China I imagine their are clothing tailors to make clothing for people. In my home country there are not many chances for this. There are clothing shops catering to different budgets.

Hi. I like ready made clothes as well. There are so many designs to choose from nowadays and there are so many sizes. That is why I always find an outfit that fits me perfectly. I think it is more expensive to get a tailor made outfit since you have to buy the cloth and go pay the tailor. You have to pay twice the amount. Also, having an outfit made by a tailor takes time too. In a store, you can just buy it then wear it the next day. But i will hire a tailor if I need a gown or a party dress. happy mylotting.
