Richard Thompson Three-piece Made-to-Measure Suit

Why is Exclusive Tailoring so popular with celebrities?

With a number of prominent British menswear brands coming to light, as well as the rise of emerging British talent, we are seeing a new culture of influencers whose creative innovation is being recognised worldwide, especially among reputable celebrities who dress fashionably on the red carpet. Exclusive Tailoring is in with the crowd, having dressed the likes of Lord Sugar, Ronan Keating, and Anthony Joshua to name a few.

As well as having an impressive list of celebrity and private clients, Exclusive Tailoring stands by offering the same calibre of suit as similar services based on Savile Row while offering competitive prices and a down-to-earth service. I have recommended clients to Exclusive Tailoring who don’t think twice about spending £800+ on a suit that will last for years to come. If we think along the lines of cost-per-wear (CPW = total cost of the item /

number of days you’ll wear it), a price tag of £800 may appear expensive at face value but works out to just £66 per month over one year. A worthwhile investment? I think so. And worth every penny compared to spending money on a cheaper suit and then disposing of it after a month due to the wear and tear of low-quality fabrics.

A classic suit will never date. The summer season of weddings has arrived so my advice, as a stylist, is to invest in either a blue or grey suit – single breasted with a flat fronted trouser to match. As part of Exclusive Tailoring’s made-to-measure service, Richard Thompson provides an initial consultation where you’ll choose a colour for your suit from an extensive selection of swatches. He will then take your measurements so the suit is individually made to fit your exact body proportions.

If you choose a bespoke suit, it is made entirely from scratch which, of course, means that the service is slightly pricier.
