While buying an off-the-rack suit may fit the bill for most occasions, getting a tailored suit can not only fit you perfectly, but is an experience entirely unto itself. Sure, there’s the pragmatic approach of getting the best fit possible for your money. And for that, only a tailored suit will do. Then again, setting an appointment and cultivating a relationship with some of Sacramento’s finest tailors is an experience unto itself. Here are the best places to get a tailored suit in Sacramento.
R Douglas Custom Clothier
1020 12th St.
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 588-3744

Custom suits don’t necessarily have to cost an arm and a leg. While the custom suits at R Douglas Custom Clothier’s do come at custom prices, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better custom suit with more value than from Ryan and his team of fitters. If you have a budget in mind, let them know off the bat and they’ll be more than accommodating in working with you. According to their website, (linked above) it’s a 4-6 week waiting period from consultation to final product delivery. A $1,000 ball-park figure for a two-piece suit is to be expected.

Navin’s Custom Clothiers
324 K. St.
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 448-5688

One of Navin’s many taglines states “Your image is our concern,” and their previous clientele and your shopping experience with them will prove just that. Navin’s Custom Clothiers brings the best of London’s Saville Row to Nothern California not only through design, but through experience. With literally thousands of suits made over the span of four decades, Peter Navin brings an eye for design and experience. If James Bond had chosen a tailor for himself, Navin would definitely be the one. Consider how earlier last year Tom Mulhall, custodian of an Aston Martin from the actual Bond films and a Bond enthusiast, recreated a famous scene from a Bond film and used Navin’s Custom Tailor’s as his go-to for suits.
