A bespoke suit is one of the most luxurious purchases you can make.
We use our experience and expertise, to create unique and beautiful garments, which ensures a discreet elegant look; whatever your style preferences, or whatever occasion the garment is for.
Bespoke is an old fashioned term from the word ‘bespeak’ or ‘spoken for’ referring to rolls of cloth ordered by customers waiting to be made into garments; by which time, the customer‘s style detailed had been agreed; measurements taken and the customer‘s shape (configurations) carefully noted.
Over time, not just the cloth, but the process and the resulting garment of that process, has become known as Bespoke.
It’s an individually hand cut garment, from a cloth of the customer’s choosing, cut to the customer’s required style, measurements and specific shape, by an experienced cutter or tailor and sewn by a master tailor and trouser-maker.
Our services are explained in a little more detail below.
SAVILE ROW BESPOKE
QUITE SIMPLY THE BEST TAILORING STANDARD IN THE WORLD
One of a kind, hand cut and shaped around your body to enhance your presence and gravitas. A bespoke garment will project elegance and authority, whatever your size and shape.
We can take your instructions and make a garment accordingly.
But, it may be useful for us to make some suggestions and give some guidance, in which case we want know what you like in a garment.
More importantly, we want to know, what you don’t like.
There are many thousands of fabric samples, endless style options and a whole variety of adorning details that can be incorporated into a garment, making it uniquely yours.
With this vast array of possibilities, you’ll find our guidance useful; helping you navigate through the options and guiding you towards your ideal garment. And away from some styles and colors, which may not help the quest for elegance.
During this process, we agree the cloth, lining and style details. We make suggestions; you make the decisions.
We take precise measurements, taking notes of your shape as well as your size, for a perfect fit. But it’s a lengthy process, it can take up to three months to complete from start to finish.
From this information a paper pattern is drafted, of your garment. This will be your unique pattern. This pattern will be uniquely your size, your shape, your style and design.
The pattern is used to carefully mark around every component of the pattern on the fabric; the fabric is then carefully cut by hand.
The cloth is assembled by hand into a ‘baste. The cloth is loosely sewn together with the canvass inner linings and shoulder trimmings, creating the ‘foundation’ of the suit, ready for your first fitting.
The fitting involves trying on the ‘baste’ and making any adjustments that may be needed. The garment is then returned to the workshop, taken apart completely, than re-cut to accommodate the changes.
The garment is assembled and hand sewn together by the skilled coat makers and trouser makers, to produce the finished garment. It is than finally presented to you, the customer, for a final fitting.

MADE TO MEASURE
SEMI BESPOKE HANDTAILORED TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD
Our made to measure options bridges the gap between bespoke and ready to wear, providing a ‘semi’ bespoke solution. The process mixes hand craft and machine work to create a garment on a tighter time and budget. Although this is a streamlined process every care is taken to retain the fit and quality.
Precise measurements are taken, carefully noting your shape as well as his size, from which the cloth is cut.
The same vast range of fabrics are available as for the bespoke, with a few exceptions. And there are endless options for cut, finishes, style and an array of details, which allow you to create a unique personalised suit.
The process of a made to measure suit involves less fittings than a bespoke (only one fitting is required) and can be created within one to two months. The result is an individual and impeccably fitting suit that you’ll love to wear.
The time it takes to make these garments are substantially less than the bespoke, which is reflected in the price.
