‘Why do our customers come to us for their bespoke clothes? It’s because it’s our passion and what we love to do’
Where will you be wearing your bespoke suit? Of course the answer can be ‘everywhere’, however in the majority of cases the you will have a primary purpose in mind; Business and business travel, social use, for a wedding or special occasion – even country pursuits.
It follows that the cut and choice of cloth are central to this primary purpose, ease of movement and the way the cloth ‘wears’ are paramount.
We have a day to day business relationship with all the leading mills and cloth merchants and will guide you through your choices. British cloth
is the best in the world and comes in a bewildering choice of colours, weights and checks or overlays. We encourage you to take your time in making this fundamental choice as along with the cut it will truly determine how you wear the clothing – and how often.
We then take 21 direct measurements from which we draft your individual paper pattern. We build the foundation of your suit by the addition of wool canvasses and horsehair chest pieces to your chosen material. The suit is then basted together for your first fitting with the cutter who measured and made the original pattern. The suit will then be re-cut to accommodate any adjustments, it is then trimmed with the finest linings, interlinings, buttonhole silks and buttons.
There is so much more that we can do to personalise your suit and make it unique.
In effect we can accommodate most if not all of your reasonable requests, from the length of the jacket to the angle of the side pockets. From the lapel width and length to the pocket flaps. One vent or two?
Button holes and cuffs are made by hand, and even the choice of buttons is personal. If you would like a lining that expresses your personality or colour choice – it’s down to you – you can be as individual as you like.
