Is a bespoke suit worth the investment?

First thing’s first: investing in a bespoke tailored suit will reward you tenfold. There are, though, several factors to consider when deciding whether to pay that bit extra for a bespoke suit.

When done correctly, your new suit will become your trusted wardrobe friend, making you look more confident, stylish, and professional.

By its very nature, a bespoke suit is a vehicle for subtly communicating your personal style to the world. With a perfect fit and details customised to your preferences, you have far more control of your look than if you chose a ready-to-wear suit.

How long will my first consultation take?

Alexandra will spend an hour getting to know you and your requirements. This is where crucial notes are taken and where Alexandra works to create your personalised style, by choosing the best fabric, cut, colour and texture to make you look incredible. Your consultation is then finalised with your full set of measurements taken.

How long does a bespoke suit take to make?

Depending on the options chosen and fittings required, our bespoke suits will be ready for your first fitting with us in around 8 weeks. Further fittings will then be required and can take in total up to 12 weeks to complete to its full, final perfected completion. 

How many fittings will I need for my bespoke suit?

You will usually be required to visit for two to three fittings for a bespoke suit, and these take around 20 minutes each time. Alexandra will work on your suit until it’s 100% perfect. A bespoke suit takes time and intricacy so does take much longer than a semi bespoke suit.

How much does an Alexandra Wood bespoke suit cost?

Our semi bespoke suits start from £1,200

Our two piece fully bespoke suits start from £4,000
