Before & After: Lookin’ Sharp in Off The Rack Menswear

Shirt color washes him out and is too billowy in sides and sleeves.
Trouser are too big and conservative for his athletic and sporty build.




 Slim fit beautifully textured shirt in one of his best blues (color reads better on right).  Shirt is tailored, yet still offers room in the sides as he prefers, and the slim fit trousers showcase all his hard work in the gym, while still looking professional! 


Meet Bob!  Bob and his beautiful wife just achieved some fitness goals and he’s in need of some new duds that do right by him!

….I like the way Bob thinks.  He’s all about VALUE which includes a variety of things:  Quality, color, fit and cost-per wear to name a few.  A family man, he also wants to update his wardrobe as quickly as possible.

With that in mind, while Bob invested in some J Hilburn ready-to-wear menswear, we did a combo of shopping off the rack as well.


  • Uniquely Savvy consulted and evaluated Bob’s wardrobe (closet audit) – 1 hour
  • Uniquely Savvy pre-shopped without Bob for only 1 hour at Bellevue Square – A variety of stores
  • Bob showed up for a fitting – 2 hours
  • Result – Several new shirts and trousers to move seamlessly across Bob’s lifestyle.
  • Benefit – Confidence + time and money savings!  Colors and “fits” to best represent his unique build and personal style (Shirts from Wine to blues and purples and blacks, solids and patterns.  Pants subtle patterns to solids)


Congrats Bob – you’re an inspiration!  Thanks for showing us what you can do in fitness and in fashion – affordable off the rack!


JUST FOR LAUGHS:  We joked about how losing weight is a commitment because you are not only investing in your health, you are also investing in a whole new wardrobe!…Isn’t that the truth?!  But alas, you CAN do it affordably and swiftly!
