Services:

Custom Tailored Suiting:

Our proprietary measuring system uses a combination of techniques from different time periods over the last 400 years – from English frock coats, to Beau Brummell’s redefining of proper court attire, to various evolutions of sartorial standards of dress found throughout Europe and beyond. We pay homage to the founders and shakers of menswear, as well as the artisans and master tailors by accounting for every single nuance of one’s unique posture and build down to the millimetre of detail.

From the initial conception of your design, everything is customizable. Sizing of lapel, buttons, lining, accenting stitch collars, and pocket styles to name a few – possibilities are virtually endless. As your design details are thorough, so are the steps to which your measurements are taken, and your pattern crafted. With over 30 measurements to ensure a perfect fit, your pattern is crafted by which your suit(s) will be constructed from – an individual pattern for each and every one of our clients is crated and stored. As with all forms of tailoring, final adjustments will be made as needed and your pattern updated to reflect the changes for future orders.
