    Default I need help with a sentence (tag-line) for a client...

    She has a tailoring business and she submitted this tagline, "Clothing aren't bought to fit, their tailored to fit". What is wrong with this sentence and why? Firstly I know that their should be they're. Please help.

    "Clothing aren't bought to fit, their tailored to fit"

    bammtheque.
    "Clothes aren't bought to fit, they're tailored to fit"
    OR
    "Clothing isn't bought to fit, it's tailored to fit"

    I think the first one works better.

    not a teacher
