A string of new bespoke services are using the latest technology to help you fill your closet with perfectly fitted clothes. Here, the best of the crop.

SUIT: Acustom Apparel
The winner of Best Fashion Startup at 2014’s Fashion 2.0 Awards, Acustom Apparel began with custom jeans and has expanded to a nearly complete bespoke wardrobe. The shop’s 3-D, full-body scanner measures every inch of your frame to build you the ideal suit. (Allow three to seven weeks to pick it up.) 330 West Broadway, New York; Acustom.com

SHIRT: ManuelRacim
Tucked away in their cozy flagship store in Tribeca, French expats Manuel Guardiola and Racim Allouani have launched the latest innovation in custom shirting. Pick your fabric from the rotating swatches (anything from work-appropriate gingham to dandyish Liberty florals), get your measurements, and add the final touches by personalizing your shirt from collar to sleeve with their top-notch computer program. If you can’t get to Manhattan, let your creativity run free on their site. 44 Hudson St., New York; ManuelRacim.com

UNDERWEAR: The Perfect Son
Based in Barcelona, the Perfect Son will hook you up with custom skivvies, handmade on demand and complete with your initials. Perfection has a price—$289 for cotton shorts—but your success in the bedroom may depend on it. ThePerfectSon.com

SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban Remix
The launch of Ray-Ban’s new materials collection coincides with the chance for online shoppers to build their own pair of shades. Choose from eight frame styles (including foldable Wayfarers and ultra-slick Clubmasters) and 13 color combos, plus several lens varieties. If you’re really daring, get your specs engraved or flaunt a custom print. Ray-Ban.com
