Through an in-depth consultation with one of our tailors we offer guidance on a wide range of hand-selected fabrics, style and finishes.
The suit is expertly crafted by our highly skilled team to fit the unique measurements of each individual client.
One tailor oversees the entire process, which normally takes between 6 and 8 weeks.
Our semi-bespoke process sits comfortably between fully handmade and made to measure, offering what is commonly know as a basted or skeleton fitting as part of the development process. At this point, the suit is temporarily stitched together with white basting thread so that details and fit can be perfected.
Our hand finished suiting is our highest level of construction. Each garment is crafted with a focus on artisanal techniques, employed for centuries by the best hand tailors. Buttonholes are hand cut, details such as sleeve and shoulder lining, collar and melton are sewn by hand. The chest and lapel padding can take half a day of handwork alone.
Each hand finished suit is constructed with a full floating horsehair canvas that runs underneath the external wool layer of the suit. The canvas acts like a second skin allowing the suit to mould to your body, giving it structure, beautiful shape, drape and form. It runs from the shoulder to the base of the jacket.
Once the garment has been cut, the suit is loosely stitched together for a basted fitting. At this stage the garment is only partially constructed allowing for any changes to be chalked and pinned by your tailor. Once the fitting is complete, the suit will be stripped down, re-cut and tailored to its final stages.
