Bespoke Men's Suits
Bespoke suits are made to an individual buyer's specification by a tailor and are traditionally cut from a pattern drafted from scratch for the customer. The distinguishing points of bespoke tailoring are the buyer's total control over the fabric used, the features and fit, and the way the garment should be made. More generally, bespoke tailoring includes a high degree of customization and involvement of the end-user in the production process.
The art of creating is thrilling… to deliver a garment that's as good as it can possibly be conveys the ultimate joy. To deliver this perfection one has to consider the entire person, listen to their preferences, note their personality, physicality and in partnership, design their image. We don't start the work until I know client's vision'.

'Being a Savile Row Brand, we're extremely inspired by traditional menswear patterns whether its a Tartan or Check and its been fun to show it in new colorways.
