Handmade Vs Custom
Custom and handmade differ in the way each garment is built. Handmade infers an elevated level of quality due to the additional time and effort involved. Our tailor will design, cut and assemble an entire wardrobe by hand. There are numerous try-ons that contribute to a world-class fit. The basting fitting being the most infamous for providing the highest level of comfort when the tailor works the canvas to move with the body. When it comes to decisions, bespoke is the choice made for quality.
A handmade suit makes a statement of prominence. The choice to build a suit from scratch is a commitment to making the finest suit known to man. These are suits built for you, built for one body alone. Everything about it is original, including the design and fit.
When a bespoke suit is being made there are many stages of construction that require fittings to ensure the tailor is on the right track in building a suit around the client’s body. The first fitting is one of the most defining elements of the bespoke process because it involves fitting a full canvas to ensure the quality of the fit. A full canvas helps to maintain the fit in different positions or when in motion. Its the sign of a high-quality suit that fits to perfection. A custom suit can also have a full canvas but it will depend on the template the custom suit is constructed with.
A well-known attribute of a bespoke suit is that they are handmade. A bespoke tailor will measure, design, cut and stitch the suit by hand. There is no automated process behind the creation of a bespoke suit making them original in every way. The difference in custom suits is that they have a pre-designed template that is customized making the style similar in many respects.
