Made to Measure
We know that everybody (and every body) is unique, so we look at your lifestyle, body shape and colouring in order to design tailoring that elevates your style and enables your personality to shine through.
We follow a tried and trusted process that helps us understand your needs, resulting in clothes that work for you.
We don't believe in blindly following trends or fashion; we simply want you to feel great in everything you wear. We hold size models for you to try on, so we can discuss exactly how you like your clothes to feel and then advise on the best style and fit for your requirements. We advise on style, shape, construction, and fabrics, and the whole process takes place in a relaxed and friendly environment.
We work with only the finest quality fabrics from the very best mills in the UK and Italy, ensuring we can provide you with beautiful clothes that combine quality with careful attention to detail.
Put simply, made to measure means clothing that is created using an existing base-pattern and then modified to fit you precisely. We all know that a 42-inch jacket from one brand can fit very differently to a jacket of the same size from another label, and we’ve all bought clothes that don’t fit as well as we’d like. Made to measure solves that problem, but it can be a bit of a minefield.
We do made to measure differently. Unlike some, we can modify almost every element of a garment, e.g. shoulder width to sleeve pitching on a shirt, to ensure you get a perfect fit.
We also offer a choice of half-canvas constructions, full canvas and unstructured, but we don't expect you know what these mean so we guide you through the process in an enjoyable way, ensuring you understand every choice you’re making.
Knowing how to create the right made to measure suit with all of the potential modification options takes skill, knowledge, and experience; it isn’t just a case of handing someone a measuring tape.
Our made to measure suits start from £1,100.
