We offer you stylish, effortless bespoke suits with minimum fuss, in a relaxed environment that leaves you neither shaken nor stirred. Our suits are designed with busy people in mind; meaning swift consultations, effective choice making and minimal fittings, leaving you to enjoy your bespoke suit.
Fully bespoke tailoring
"Bespoke" in the strictest sense means a suit made from scratch, using paper patterns cut specifically for you. No modified pattern blocks are involved at all. We can sketch and create any design of suit you wish, so if you wanted lapels like zig-zags, you've got it.
You can expect to have a basted fitting. This is where the suit is half-made by our UK workshops, then a wide variety of modifications are made from here onwards, fine-tuning your suit to perfection. This is why you will have many more fittings than with made-to-measure – up to five in some cases. You will see lots of exposed stitching and will be able to see first-hand what interfacing will be inside your jacket.
Bespoke suits can take between 4-6months to complete
Our prices start from £3,000
This generally means slightly modified from pattern blocks. However, a generic company would take a 40" chest block then lengthen sleeves, jacket length… and not much else. At Alexandra Wood, made-to-measure differs in that we can modify literally everything, from shoulder width to sleeve pitching.
This makes it as close to bespoke as possible, bar the basted fittings and the fusing. Needless to say, knowing how to create the right made-to-measure suit with all these modifications takes skill and knowledge; it isn’t something done by simply handing someone a measuring tape.
Made-to-measure suits take between 6-8weeks
Prices start from £895
