A Personal Investment
A customized experience, tailored to perfection with personal attention.
What makes a suit?
Most would say that a suit is comprised of a jacket with matching trouser. Easy enough, but if it’s something as simple as a sum of the parts, where do you draw the line on what those parts are? For us, we view a suit — bespoke or made to measure — as more than articles of clothing. We see them as their raw ingredients.
How do you define good cloth?
We pull our swatches from some of the best fabric houses in the world, including Huddersfield Textiles, Holland & Sherry and more. To expand on what I said earlier about raw ingredients, take a quick look over at my friend Rian’s blog for an intimate look into the world of cloth. I could go on, but he’s honestly said it better.
How do you fit a suit properly?
This is where I’m supposed to tell you that fitting a suit is one of the most difficult and intricate parts of the process. Well, it’s not. Why am I saying this? Shouldn’t this turn you away and cause you to second guess clicking the little “Book Now” button down below? Maybe. I ask that you hear me out, first. It’s not about the process, it’s about the skillset of the person fitting the suit.
What is a tailor?
Let’s go ahead and touch on the subject a bit deeper by getting the elephant out of the room. There is a difference between a salesperson and a tailor. I’ve said it to every client I’ve sold any garment to and I’ll continue to say it until I die. Ask your tailor (even us!) if they have the ability and skill to make a suit to fit you perfectly with their own hands. If you get a runaround or get told no, then you’re dealing with a salesperson. However, if that answer is a yes, then you’re in good hands! Why am I saying all of this? Well, mainly because Savile Row has lost a battle, but not the war, and I’m more than willing to be on the front lines. Give that link a read and you’ll have greater insight for the next portion of this article.
Bespoke vs Made to Measure – How to define them.
I’ll keep this pretty simple:
Bespoke is made specifically to your body by a master tailor and patternmaker, then finished after multiple fittings in different stages of completion. You should NEVER purchase a “bespoke” garment unless it includes more than 3-4 fittings. On average, we will see you 5-6 times for your first suit, then 3-4 on your consecutives.
Made to Measure is just that. Garments made to your measurements. It follows an easy format of “measure” > “make” > “fit” > “alter”. Some tailors – us included – use measurements where needed, but also employ try on master garments. This method allows us to see a finished product on your body and critique what needs to be changed. Doing this prevents quite a few of the mishaps that can happen with normal made to measure. Remember, if something isn’t quite right about your suit, we’ll be the ones altering it – not taking it somewhere else.
Decades of experience. True tailoring and alterations masters. A price point that can fit most anyone’s budget. Transparency, honesty, integrity and passion. This is my life, this is my love, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
We’re here for you. No, we’re here because of you.

These days, made to measure is what most tailors claim as bespoke. What matters is that your friends, family, peers (and boss!) won’t believe it’s not! A jacket and trouser suit with fabric included.
Ladies Made to Measure

One major issue we see with custom clothiers is the lack of options for women. Our line combines the fit and finish of our men’s custom suits and shirts, while gracefully hugging the female frame
