The range of customizability that is now made available to you by the various designers and fashion houses, include options to personalize the embroidery, number of pockets, length of the pockets, placement of the same, the choice of a zip or button up mechanism etc. The basic mantra to follow while investing in any garment is to follow some do and don't and of course you must comfortable wearing it.
