Bespoke Clothing Shop

 
A bespoke garment allows you to have input on the outcome of your garment style. From cloth type and design to the individual details and whether it is full or half bespoke.  This service is open to men and women of any shape and size, taking 4 to 12 weeks.  A bespoke garment can range in price depending on the cloth cost and work involved in a more complicated design.  This is of course a premium service but it can still be tailored to your budget, from 1 change on our ready to wear collection, to a fully bespoke handmade garment.
A suit can involve the changing of the vent numbers, number of pockets, to pleats and lapel size the choice is yours. 
A dress can involve a voluminous skirt, eccentric collar or just be something you can not find in the shops.
For example.
Everything is made with a sustainably sourced cloth and constructed by myself and one of my fine tailors in central London.
Womenswear is from £50 +
Menswear singles from £50 + , 2 piece Suits from £700 + , 3 piece Suits from £950
For every garment made a girl is given 5 days of education to prevent her from being trafficked.  Follow our progress in this giving so far through the Business for Good button below.

A fully bespoke garment means to have a garment that fits your physical and lifestyle needs perfectly without compromise. 

 

 

Consultation:  What does this suit mean to you?  What do you need from it?  Taken place anywhere of your convenience ( office, home, cafe etc), this free consultation allows us to explore the design of such a garment. 

                       What colour?  Cloth type?  Summer or Winter use?  Swatches are available to view, feel and take home providing you time to be fully satisfied with your decision.  Buttons and fastenings will be discussed and presented at the toile stage.

 

 

If you wish to proceed measuring can begin.

 

 

Measurements:  Once your measurements are taken construction can begin of your basic block and then the garment block. 

 

 

Toile:  A mock up of the garment enables you to get a better sense about the garments final look in calico.  This can be adjusted with marks and pins at the first fitting, that are then transferred to adjust the block.  If any major changes are made there will be a second fitting off a new toile. 

            A range of buttons and fastenings, that match closest to what was discussed, will be presented for you choosing and confirmation to proceed.

 

 

Confirmation:  Once all adjustments are made and you are happy with cloth choice.  An agreement to proceed will be signed and construction can begin.

 

 

Final fit:  This final fitting of the half made garment allows for any minor adjustments to be made before the sleeves, collar and lining are attached.  This is in case of stretching and not a point for you to have changed shape considerably.

 

 

Collection:  Presented in its own breathable suit bag your garment is complete.  You will have a record and backstory of the tailor who made it and a swatch of cloth for future reference. 

 

 

All blocks and client details are filed securely for future reference.
