Designing & styling
Before designing begins its necessary to have a conversation about the purpose of your outfit. By getting to know your thoughts and preferences we can give better feed back and more accurate advice.
We help with choosing features since they will affect the overall appearance of the finished product. The options to choose from include different styles you want to wear and how they match up with your body type. We suggest how to customize your ensemble with the features that will make you look your best.
Measurements made to fit
A series of detailed measurements are taken to mirror every contour of the body. The measurements account for the fit but will also reflect the design in regards to spacing and the sizing of pockets, vents, lapels, etc. We find the best way to achieve the look and feel you want when accounting for every angle however, the final word is always yours.
Choosing a fabric that fits you
We offer advice on choosing fabric to improve the quality and practicality of your formal wear. Super 120’s are where our fabric selection starts for formal wear, and thread counts go as high as super 200’s. The count of the threads refers to how thin the wool fibres are in diameter. The material will often feel lighter and more luxurious with a higher thread count. Choosing the right thread count is directly related to personal preference and functionality.
Blueprints are drawn on stencils and then used to draw the components on fabric. Cutting the pieces from the fabric is a skill in itself as this particular phase is done by hand. This happens to be one of the signature steps in the design process for making an authentic bespoke suit. The tradition of making formal wear by hand ensures a completely unique garment every time.
That being said, only the base components of the garment are assembled for the first time using basting thread. As a result, the first article of clothing is comprised of primary parts and will appear unfinished during the try on. All bespoke garments are made with a full canvas.
The Try On
A full canvas makes a jacket more comfortable in every sitting or standing position. It provides more flexibility in movement from different areas, as opposed to a stiff garment that moves as one unit. The first fitting is designed specifically to make adjustments at the base level which allow the tailor to focus on the agility and movement with the body. It’s the first of a series of fittings that make up the process of building a high quality ensemble that moves in sync with the body.
A scheduled set of fittings are performed in conjuncture with the alterations. Each fitting that follows will result in another set of adjustments that make the suit a better fit each time.
If the remaining fittings and alterations are scheduled and completed efficiently, the average turnaround time for a suit to be completed is about six to eight weeks.
Our suits often become the centrepiece of the wardrobe. Wearing hand made articles of clothing provide an air of confidence and sophistication that is unparalleled to that of any other suit.
