Suit Making Process
I try to do all my alterations on your jacket while you are in front of me wearing it.
Consultancy & measurement
Once your requirements have been roughly established you can look through the many cloth and lining bunches that I have at my workroom. Working closely with you I will discuss with you the various cloth options that may be best for your requirements, but of course the final cloth choice is yours. I will then measure you and later on cut you your own pattern and prepare your suit for a first fitting.
Your draft pattern
After your first fitting, I will prepare your suit for a second fitting. The shoulders of the jacket will only be basted, hand tacked together, the under-collar will also be basted into the neck of the jacket and both sleeves will be basted in. Your trousers will normally be almost complete at this fitting point except for the seat seam, leg length and the hand finishing.
Forward fitting and finishing
Pressing and delivery
Following up. Still happy?
I always try to see the finished suit on the customer to ensure that all is well. Although sometimes this is not possible due to geographical location, timing of delivery by post etc, but either way I will follow-up 4-6 weeks after delivery to see if everything is alright and to confirm that you are happy with your suit. It is well-known that Bespoke suits do need a little time to settle and the best way for them to settle, is for it to have been worn a few times.
