Full Bespoke Suits

Every one of my full bespoke suits is meticulously hand crafted, and hand created for an individual person. My full bespoke suits are made using only traditional tailoring methods of construction and will take a minimum of 75 hours of labour to complete. Compare this amount of labour to the most expensive factory made suits that can take less than 1 hour at most to fully make.

The process begins with the creation of your own individual pattern which is exclusive to you and only you.

Your unique personal pattern will be very precisely hand cut from blank paper using the measurements I have taken from your body.

Your full bespoke suit will be expertly hand-crafted with the main emphasis on traditional hand-sewing skills, only the main seams of your coat and trousers will be joined using a machine. If a collar seam was sewn by hand 200 years ago, then that same seam, and any other, will also be sewn by hand on your suit maintaining the heritage and traditions of real bespoke tailoring.

The mainstay of a bespoke coat is the internal canvasses. These canvasses are woven from real horse hair. This springy canvas enables me to create you a garment that has shape, body and real 3D form. So, the inside front portion of your jacket between the cloth and lining will have a multi layered, hand-made horse hair canvas. This canvas will be fully shaped by the placement of hundreds of small hand stitches. This canvas will help me to create a form that flatters your physique best and maintain shape throughout the life of the coat.

A full bespoke suit from me is the very essence of the ultimate in comfort. I will make you a beautiful, hand-made jacket that will keep all the natural drape qualities of the fabric, and cut you a coat that will compliment your physique. My standard cut is traditionally English creating a slightly longer silhouette, fitted waist and a defined form to the chest. But of course if you want a softer draped cut, or a more constructed military look then of course I can cater to your wishes. That’s the advantage of working with a cut AND make bespoke tailor.

I have a wide and extensive choice of the finest Yorkshire fabrics for you to peruse through. From traditional worsted cloth which is perfect for every-day wear, all the way through to the finest Scottish cashmere cloth for the absolute ultimate in finesse and luxury. A bespoke suit commissioned from me is second to none and will far exceed anything in terms of quality and fit that you can ever buy off the peg.

I will make you an immaculate, and completely comfortable garment, that is both pleasing to the eye and imbued with your own individual style.

My bespoke suits are finished with the cleanest hand stitching, a stitch extremely delicately placed to leave only the slightest impression.

All my full-bespoke suits are complimented with beautiful hand-made button holes that are stitched with the finest pure silk thread available, and your suit will only have real horn buttons sewn onto the sleeve cuffs and jacket fronts.
