Made to Measure Suit: How It Works

To help you decide whether a made to measure suit is for you, we have put together a step-by-step guide of the process – from enquiry to the finished product.

Book Your Appointment

Using our easy online enquiry form, or by simply calling our office, you can book your appointment with us* for a day and time that suits you. If you have an idea of which style of suit you are looking for, we will be able to give you a no obligation quote before you book your appointment.

*If you are based in central London, a member of our team can visit you at your home or workplace. However, we recommend that appointments take place at our Fitzrovia office so you can view our full range of fabrics.

Style, Cut and Colour

When your appointment date comes around, you will attend a one-to-one consultation at our London office in Fitzrovia. Our office is easily accessible via several underground lines and bus routes.

During your appointment, you will be able to choose the style of suit you would like, as well as the fabric, cut and colour. We have an extensive selection of fabric swatches that you can flick through until you find the perfect one. Whether it is a casual made to measure for the office or a black-tie number for a formal evening event, we have you covered.

If you confirm that you would like to proceed and order a made to measure suit, we will measure you there and then*.

*If you are getting married, for instance, and would rather not be measured immediately, you can place a deposit with us and re-arrange a measuring appointment nearer to the day to avoid any last-minute alterations needing to be made to your made to measure wedding suit.

Creation

Once we have all your details down on paper, our specialist team will create your made to measure suit, which includes cutting the fabric and constructing your suit piece by piece with ultimate precision.

Fitting

Typically, a made to measure suit has a lead time of 4-6 weeks. Once your suit is ready, if you have not already arranged a fitting appointment, we will contact you to organise a suit fitting appointment, where you will try on your made to measure suit to ensure it fits perfectly.

Finishing Touches (optional)

In addition to providing you with your perfectly tailored made to measure suit, we have extras you can purchase from us such as ties, pocket squares, and cufflinks to set off your tailor-made ensemble. A member of our team will advise you on colours and styles for a premium finish to your look.
