Off The Cuff Made To Measure Suits In Leeds
Made To Measure Suits In Leeds
What are you actually getting ? Are you getting a REAL tailor-made suit ? Or are you getting something else that is sub-standard ? Unfortunately it may be the latter.
I have been in the tailoring trade, wholesale and bespoke for all of my working adult career, that’s 31 years up to now.
But I actually have a very clear recollection of the trade as a boy aged about 6 years with my father. So the first thing I will say is that I have heritage, and lots of it.
The other aspect is that over those years I have been a trade coat maker, and sometimes trouser maker, for LOTS and I mean LOTS of tailors up and down the UK that outsource their work.
( I am not going to start spilling the beans and naming names, but lets just say some good and some bad along with some very well established names ) so I know who is actually cutting, making or farming it out.
Sure there are some tailoring places that are in Yorkshire that have some kind of a workroom, and very convincing it may appear to be to the un-trained eye, BUT take a closer look, ask the right questions and you will find out all is not as it seems.
“Hello !” “Hello !” ” Wake up and smell the coffee !” Tailored suits are not made in a factory ! They are made by a …… TAILOR !
You would be better off going to Marks and Sparks.
Some of these ‘tailor made’ suits have been as close to a tailors hands as I have to Scarlett Johansson.
Before you part with any money take a GOOD look at the pictures in this article and ask yourself, would any self-respecting time served tailor actually turn out work of this standard and put his name to work like this ? Of course he wouldn’t, because it’s a mediocre factory made suit sold as ‘bespoke’
