Alexandra Wood makes stylish bespoke suits that will make you look sharper, fresher and slimmer. Not only that, but every suit is constructed to last, as well as flatter.
Our signature style is a slim-cut suit that is curved into the waist and back, with slender trousers and a strong shoulder line, exuding elegance and quality. You can expect a classic and timeless suit, with a fashionable edge.
Either at our London showroom on Savile Row or wherever’s convenient for you, Alexandra begins the process with a full style review, to fully understand what you wish to achieve. She will build a personal profile, advising you on style, shape and colours. Over 20 measurements, configurations and detailed notes are taken to ensure the perfect fit.
WE THEN OFFER TWO LEVELS OF TAILORING
"Bespoke" in the strictest sense means a suit made from scratch, using paper patterns cut specifically for you. No modified pattern blocks are involved at all. Alexandra can sketch and create any design of suit you wish, so if you wanted lapels like zig-zags, you've got it.
You can expect to have a basted fitting. This is where the suit is half-made by our UK workshops, then a wide variety of modifications are made from here onwards, fine-tuning your suit to perfection. This is why you will have many more fittings than with made-to-measure – up to five in some cases. You will see lots of exposed stitching and will be able to see first-hand what interfacing will be inside your jacket.
Our prices start from £2,800
This generally means slightly modified from pattern blocks. However, a generic company would take a 40" chest block then lengthen sleeves, jacket length… and not much else. At Alexandra Wood, made-to-measure differs in that we can modify literally everything, from shoulder width to sleeve pitching.
This makes it as close to bespoke as possible, bar the basted fittings and the fusing. Needless to say, knowing how to create the right made-to-measure suit with all these modifications takes skill and knowledge; it isn’t something done by simply handing someone a measuring tape.
