The way I make bespoke suits is truly unique and is unlike the way any other Bespoke Tailors Leeds or Savile Row Tailors will make, claim to make, or even attempt to make.

I only work directly with my clients, and I personally measure & make your bespoke suit, semi-bespoke suit or made to measure suit here in Leeds.

From the initial consultation, until you have your very own bespoke suit, it will have been personally tailored here in my Leeds work room and IT WILL HAVE NEVER LEFT MY HANDS.

Leeds Bespoke Tailors

It’s in the detail

I personally create your unique pattern from your measures, cut the cloth, prepare and conduct all the fittings at a time and place convenient to you, sew your bespoke suit to perfection from the fittings, perform all the delicate and intricate hand sewing and hand button holes with only the finest silk thread, personally hand press your bespoke suit and finally before delivery to you I will hand rub with Olive Oil the genuine horn buttons for your coat to bring out the patina beforehand sewing them on with silk thread.

Unique service

This unique personal, bespoke tailoring service was very rare even 60 years ago and is practically unheard of in this day and age. I am a genuine boutique business that really cares about my clients, and every one of them are important to me and valued. There are many so called bespoke tailors who will claim to cut and make your suit, but in reality this is not true.

Take a look at my article “How Honest Is Your Tailor” before wasting your money on a bad experience and a poorly made suit. Click here for prices.

Control over quality

The advantage of working this way is far superior to the normal approach of outsourcing that most other ‘bespoke tailors’ unfortunately now take, It gives me absolute control over quality at every crucial stage to make you a perfect suit and trust me every stage is crucial. All the hand work in the world means nothing if your suit doesn’t fit. Click here for prices.

Notes from my clients

Suit looks a million dollars. Just put it on as it came out of the box…. awesome! Night and day away from the various London things I’ve tried over the years.

I am now onto my 5th coat made by Des, the compliments I get when I wear them says it all.

I wanted to let you know the jacket arrived in time and it fits like a glove. I am now completely spoiled by your work.

A truly first class experience. No nonsense service with a suit produced to the highest standards that looks and feels top class. You get what you pay for, so there is only one tailor I will ever use again

Simon NewtonRegional Manager.

I have used Des since 2006. Far exceeds the quality of the USA and Savile Row tailors I have previously used, and at roughly half their price…’s a no brainer.

David GoldSt, New York USA.

Why do I fly from Moscow to London to have Mr Merrion measure me ? Because he is by far the best tailor I have ever used.

VadimMoscow Russia.

We are not short of excellent tailors in Vienna, but I elect to use Des for my tailoring requirements because I know he is the man that will actually be cutting and making my suits to perfection. He is a true Artisan.

Jakob BAustria.

The pants are great.

Ed Hayes AttorneyNew York USA.

Onto my fourth suit from Des. Always makes me feel great when I slip one of his suits on.
