"I have the same relationship to my suits by Alexandra Wood - and I am up to four now - that I imagine Iron Man has to his superhero costume. My Savile Row suits are armour, a weapon and beautifully crafted uniform that I put on when I do what life needs me to do." GQ, Tony Parsons
Is a bespoke suit worth it?
First thing’s first: investing in a 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, tailored 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?
I like to spend an hour getting to know you and your requirements. This is where we take crucial notes and create your personalised style, by choosing the best fabric, cut, colour and texture to make you look incredible. Your consultation is then completed with your measurements taken.
How long does a tailored suit take to make?
Depending on the options chosen and fittings required, a semi bespoke suit will take between 8-10 weeks to make and a bespoke suit can take between 12-16 weeks due to the hand crafted nature of the tailoring.
(For semi-bespoke wedding suits, we like to start 3-4 months prior to your wedding date).
How many fittings will I need?
You will usually be required to visit for two to three fittings for a semi-bespoke suit and between 3-6 for a bespoke suit depending on the complexity. These fittings take between 20-30 minutes each time.
