Before we commence your commission nothing exists as all is done from scratch, a blank canvas so to speak.
Bespoke is an art form best not rushed allowing the garment to mould to your body and personality. All work is done by hand so like Rome it isn't built in a day.
We start with your measurements then look at cloth from there discuss individual requirements and preferences whether it be your fit or a particular detail you have in mind such as a gauntlet cuff or "pigs ears".
The next stage is your first fitting, half a suit, no lining or pockets a base on which to check your measurements, posture and characteristics of the cloth ( a Harris tweed makes up somewhat differently to a super 180's twill or barathea. )
Your fitting is then stripped down, re cut and basted to the next stage which we continue until both are happy with the finished with the garment. Allow up to ten weeks for your first commission, eight for repeat orders as we have your past fittings and preferences to work from.
Naturally all are fully hand canvassed and feature details such as hand sewn button holes, Irish linen button threads and Bemberg linings. Peak or notch lapel, slant, straight or jetted pockets, with or without a ticket pocket, centre, side or no vents all possible giving you the luxury of deciding how your suit will look and feel.

Needless say all are cut individually and sewn by hand and machine. All collars have a loose lining which is cut on the bias to aid in comfort and maintaining a neat collar throughout the working day. We feature a four piece collar, split yoke and Australian Mother of pearl buttons. All stitching is single needle with the option of hand sewn sleeves, collars and button holes.
Select your collar, cuff and front style, a casual button down Oxford or a semi cutaway plain front double cuff poplin, with ten collar styles, twelve cuff styles you will never be short of options.
We use the finest English, Italian and Swiss cottons, Irish linens with yarn counts from two fold 50's through to the upper echelons of super 250's.
Stripes, checks, plains, oxfords, poplins, twills, pinpoints, voiles the choice is endless.
Imagine the luxury of bespoke knitwear, all fully fashioned with hand set sleeves and collars, made to your exact size and style from either a pure Mongolian cashmere in either a 2/28 or 2/11 gauge or a two fold 80/20 cashmere/silk blend.

A fifty four colour range gives you a choice of over 1,000 knits, the only tough decision "which one first?"
As with bespoke, we start with nothing other than an idea and a clean slate. You select your cloth, style and cut, we then take all your measurements and other styling details such as lining and button colour, jacket, waistcoat and trouser options.
We work to a straight finish which is delivered in around five weeks, minor alterations can be carried out within a week and your suit is delivered to you in person.
All your details are retained for future reference as and when you wish to commission your next suit, jacket, Tuxedo or topcoat.
