The first step in your suit creation is the initial consultation, during which you will select your cloth, lining and real horn buttons from our wide selection of beautiful options.
We will take around 40 measurements, and carefully discuss your requirements so you can be assured we know exactly what you need from your suit.
Your Unique Pattern
After your initial consultation, we will then personally produce your own unique pattern. This will be entirely unique to you, and will be kept updated from future fittings.
We don’t repurpose old patterns- once we have drawn up your pattern it will remain yours and we can make as many suits from it as you require.
Hand Marking In and Hand Cutting
Using your unique pattern, the suit-making process truly begins by carefully hand marking in your suit on your selected cloth.
Then we hand cut the material and produce the skeleton baste fitting of your suit in preparation for your first fitting.
During your first fitting, we will make careful chalk adjustments onto your suit noting any figure and fit requirements.
This is the first time you will see the cloth you have chosen coming to life and get just a taste of how the finished product will look and feel.
Complete Ripping Down and Re-cutting
After your first fitting, your suit will be completely taken apart and re-cut, transferring any alterations noted from your first fitting.
Any alterations that were noted or marked up, will be applied to your original paper pattern enabling us to have an almost perfect template of your figure.
At your second fitting, your suit will be almost finished, only the main seams will be sewn using a sewing machine. All other seams that were sewn by hand over 200 years ago will also be sewn by hand on your suit
We will also note any further minor alterations to your suit ensuring a perfect fit.
Your Finished Suit
Your suit will then be finished with the cleanest hand stitching, each hand stitch will be delicately placed to leave only the slightest impression.
All our bespoke suits are then hand pressed and finished with hand-made button holes sewn in only the finest pure silk thread available.
