Custom Fashion Ideas That Showcase Your Personality

Being like everyone else is so last year. Customizing your fashion is the way to go. Not only do you get feel gratified in having something that is specifically designed for you but it’s also a great way to express your personality.

Here's three staple of a man's wardrobe that could use some personal flair.

It should go without saying that every man should own a good suit during their life. Whether it’s for a big presentation at work, a wedding or a night out with the lads, a suit is always needed to look your sharpest.

Suits are the ultimate customizable piece of fashion for a man. However, purchasing a suit can often be a difficult, costly and timely process. First you need to find a reputable tailor and be measured up. You then need to make a decision on everything from the style and cut of your suit to the design, fabric and color. Three jacket buttons or four? Wide lapel or a slim one?

As we said – it’s a difficult process! Thankfully, there’s InStitchu, which takes this entire process and streamlines it for the digital age by bringing it online.

InStitchu allows men to choose of their suits from their wide and varied collection and customize it to their tastes. You can compare designs, choose your color and use their 10 minute sizing process to ensure you get the perfect suit.

The stereotype of women being the ones who are obsessed with shoes is outdated. There’s a growing trend for guys to secretly (and not so secretly) fill up the cupboard with the latest sneakers and those hard to get limited edition runners.

But with so many options for kicks on the market nowadays, where do you even begin? Well, why not just design your own!

One legendary brands let you do just that – Converse. For a low cost, Converse lets you design your own pair of their classic Chuck Taylor shoes.

And when we mean design, we mean design every single part of the shoe! From the outer body, inner body, heel and tongue to the lining, sidewall, racing stripe as well as even the stitching, eyelets and laces. Each one of these things can be a different color or a cool pattern. You can even stamp your own personal ID on the shoe.

Let your creativity shine through by creating something truly unique for yourself.

There has been an explosion of customizable t-shirt stores and online merchants in the last few years. And for good reason. Why let some fashion chain tell you what you should be wearing during your free time when you can just design something yourself?

The process is simple. Do some quick research and find the best vendor with the cheapest costs or quickest delivery time. And don't forget fit: are you going for a standard tee, a v-neck or a singlet?

Creating your own line of tees is happening more frequently as consumers ditch the retail landscape in search of something more personalized.
