When we design our first suit together there is a steep learning curve to experience in working with one another. Beyond the fabric of a suit is a working relationship where the tailor and client build a suit from two different perspectives. During the first experience of design, these two perspectives become one.
Our suits are made with an attention to detail that results in a garment that can be examined closely and celebrated for its craftsmanship. The bespoke suit is a handmade luxury item we provide that our team takes great pride in creating and even more pleasure in presenting. When our clients try on the finished suit for the first time, it is an event we look forward to sharing as it signifies the end of a journey and the beginning of a new one.
To make a suit bespoke means to opt for the highest quality of craftsmanship in every aspect of the suit. Starting from the foundation of the suit, our shop utilizes a full canvas in all of our bespoke suits. We don’t always offer this option with custom suits although there are many cases where a full canvas is used.
A notable feature that adds to the notoriety of a bespoke suit is the stitching. All bespoke suits are hand stitched as opposed to a machine which adds more originality and character to the garment. When each stitch is examined closely it may be more apparent to see that the stitching was done by hand by the imperfections of the stitches. A machine stitch tends to be a straight line where the seams and components are sewn together whereas a handcrafted suit it’s not always a perfect line.
Much of the allure of a creating a bespoke garment stems from the history and the experience associated with designing formal wear. The infamous Savile Row has been a huge influence in the mens world of formal fashion. The first bespoke suits were born from this street in London and have created an attractive allure for many of the worlds celebrities. Well known actors, politicians and as well as the upper class have been noted to buy suits from this area. Its reputation has created an appeal that many associate belonging to in a similar fashion as an old gentlemen’s club.
