MILAN — Don’t expect men to compromise on made-to-measure.
According to experts here, the category, which registered bullish growth in 2008, will continue to blossom — albeit at a slower rate — despite the bleak economic outlook, because men see bespoke tailoring as a mid- to long-term investment and not just a seasonal thrill. Although made-to-measure may be priced up to 20 to 30 percent higher than ready-to-wear, executives maintain that consumers get more bang for their buck.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
