FAQs

  • What is the difference between Bespoke & Made-to-Measure?

    A Bespoke garment is unique to you, made to your precise specifications and based on a paper pattern created by our in-house cutters. Bespoke clients will go through an average of three fittings between placing an order and collecting a finished suit. Our bespoke suits are made by our dedicated team of cutters, tailors and finishers, and absorb up to 80-hours of work in the process. The time required to create a bespoke suit varies, but most suits can be finished within a 10-week timeframe depending on clients’ availability for fittings. 

    Our Made-To-Measure tailoring is fitted to you using our unique fitting garments, from which we take measurements and assess your build and posture. This allows us to carefully customise your suit for a superior fit. As with Bespoke, Made-To-Measure clients can choose their preferred cloth, lining and styling details. The garment will then be made in a specialist workshop in Italy, using traditional tailoring techniques. Most Made-To-Measure suits will be ready to fit approximately eight weeks after placing an order.
