A true bespoke process must include at least the following 3 things. If it doesn’t, then it’s not bespoke.
1. Individual Paper Pattern
This is what defines bespoke, the fact the the jacket is cut for you and not according to size or a general paper pattern. Yet not every tailor does this. In bespoke, a paper pattern is drawn from scratch using your measurements and posture indications. This pattern is then corrected and modified after the different fittings of your first suit. This pattern is the reflection of your body on paper and is kept for future orders.
Fittings are sacred, the most important part of the process. They cannot be avoided if you want to make a garment that fits beautifully. We do at least two fittings. When it’s a clients first order we go for three. No exceptions.
3. Artisanal Production & Fused and Fully Canvased
There are no assembly lines or industrial processes. Garments are built one by one, mostly by hand, slowly. It’s what allows us to pay the most intimate attention to detail in order to create suits and jackets that have nice shape and dimension instead of being flat and dull.
There are two ways to making a suit, fused or hand canvased. True bespoke has to be hand canvased, it’s the canvas that gives a suit its shape.
The best service, the best fabrics
Usually tailors know a lot about style, elegance and etiquette. This is amazing because they are great consultants when you’re trying to build a wardrobe. We can help you find something that you will love to wear and that feels like you.
At good tailor shops you will find some of the best and most luxurious materials you can find. We get sourced by the best producers of natural fibers: cottons, linens, wools; and even exotic materials like cashmere, vicuna, alpaca, and silk. For buttons you will find horn, mother of pearl, corozo, tagua and many other options. These natural materials are what will make your suit luxurious.
