Bespoke Suits

A bespoke suit

We believe a bespoke suit is one of the most important pieces in a man’s wardrobe. Each element from the fabric, pattern, lining, cut and almost every element of the suit is custom made. This creates a suit that reflects its owner's flair and style.

Our innovation and flexibility mean your options are innumerable. If you should desire the creation of custom cloth with your name woven in 24-carat gold thread we can arrange it (as pictured). Attention to detail produces originality, exclusivity and a suit that is truly unique to you.

Using their wealth of experience our tailors advise clients on how to create the best bespoke suit they desire. Each decision from cloth, linings, buttons and trimmings goes towards a suit that fits and wears perfectly. The end result speaks for itself in style, elegance and character.

Made entirely in Britain

Choosing the right fabric is a vital part of the bespoke process. A suit or shirt’s quality is dictated by the fabrics used and the skill of the tailor. We offer all our clients a choice of the finest clothes and linings both British and Italian for their bespoke suits.

We carry exclusive designer fabrics from Holland and Sherry, Dormeuil, and Dugdale Bros. & Co.
Clients who prefer their suits to be made of foreign fabrics can choose from our selected stock of Italian cloths and linings, including luxury fabrics from Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana.

Complete the look

Our services are not limited to suits. We also offer our clients the option to have made-to-measure shirts to complete their look.

We carry a wide variety of fabrics and colours to choose from. Our bespoke tailors are always available to help you decide on the colour and fabric that match your personality, skin tone, and suit design. Made-to-Measure shirts take some time to create and our tailors follow the same careful process in creating bespoke suits.

FAQs

1. What do I need to know about bespoke suits?

Bespoke suits are garments made to a specific pattern drafted to the client’s own body measurements, to which cloth is then hand-cut and assembled by hand on-premise. Bespoke tailoring allows for the cutter to have multiple fittings with the client in order to nail the fit of the garment before sending it off for completion.

2. Are bespoke suits worth the price?

Bespoke suits work out economically cheaper in the long run, as most ready to wear garments do not hold any inlay & utilise fusing to give the garment shape, fusing being an adhesive that over time loses its strength and bobbles, whereas bespoke garments are not only made to the clients’ body measurements and specifications but utilise the very best materials when constructing a suit, with a proper horsehair canvas. It also allows for inlay cloth cut into the suit for futureproofing the garment allowing for letting out the suit if the customer puts on weight.

3. How long does it take to make a bespoke suit?

The process of a bespoke suit takes anywhere from 10-14 weeks to complete. This all depends on how busy the house is and the number of tailors they have available to complete jobs, as well as the client’s availability to conduct intermittent fittings.

4. How fast can a bespoke suit be made?

You do not want to rush a bespoke garment however if you are a previous customer, we can expedite it straight to finish in 6-8 weeks.

5. What's the difference between a fully bespoke and semi-bespoke suit?

Semi-bespoke suits don’t really exist, it is a pretty modern term. You can either have a bespoke suit or a made to measure suit. The difference is, that bespoke garments have a pattern drafted from scratch based on the individuals’ measurements and have multiple fittings in between to fine-tune fit & made-to-measure suiting amends an existing block pattern based on the individuals’ measurements, it also doesn’t allow for multiple fittings, its straight to finish and then alterations are made if required afterwards.

6. How do you recognise a badly made suit?

Usually, the fit and natural drape of the garment is a tell-tale sign. Most fused suits tend to bobble up as the adhesive wears out. Bespoke suits have a certain drape about them that rolls off the chest in such a way, whereas most poorly made suits just stick to the chest flat without any shape or ‘bounce’ to it.
