made to measure
Made to measure tailoring generally refers to a modified block. A generic company may take a 40" chest pattern then lengthen sleeves and jacket length, but not much else
At Alexandra Wood, made to measure differs in that we can modify literally anything, from shoulder width to sleeve pitching.
We offer a choice of half canvas constructions, full canvas and unstructured, but as we don't expect you to know what these mean - we fully educate you, so you understand the decisions you are making.
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.
We offer appointments in Savile Row and Bishops Stortford and also offer personal appointments to your office by request. (London only)
We offer flexible appointment times, so if a time that suits you (pardon the pun) isn't available please do contact us.
Everyone's unique. We look at your body shape, colouring and lifestyle to design you tailoring that encourages your very own style to shine through. We ask a set of questions to help us understand your needs and create clothes that work for you.
We don't believe in strictly following trends or fashion, but simply feeling good in everything you wear.
We hold size models for you to try on, so that you are able to see exactly how you like your clothes to fit and we then advise you on the best fit and style for you based on your requirements.
We can advise on construction, style, shape and fabrics in a relaxed environment.
We only hold the finest, quality fabrics from only the best mills in the UK and Italy and only complete your suit until it's perfect. So, if you want quality, attention to detail and a beautiful suit, then you've come to the right place.
We create sharp, classic made to measure business suits that make you look a cut above the rest
We are well known for our sharp, clean, classic business suits.
We've designed many suits for high-profile businessmen and people in the public eye. From one suit to an entire wardrobe, we help create you a look that shows you mean business.
We know how busy you are, and that the last thing that you want - or have time for - is to figure out what to wear every day.
That's where we come in. We make it simple, leaving you to do what you do best.
