With made-to-measure, the options in terms of cloth, design, and details are unlimited. We offer a wide selection of fabrics from reputable British and Italian mills and merchants. Whether you're looking for something for a wedding or work, summer or winter, we provide advice to ensure the garment is fit for its intended purpose.
We not only take body measurements but also examine posture to create a pattern tailored to the customer's unique build. Our tailoring is specially crafted for us in Italy, featuring a lightweight full canvas construction and extensive handwork.
Our roots lie in bespoke tailoring, and craftsmanship is integral to our made-to-measure offering. It is available in two makes: hand-finished and handmade. Below, we elaborate on the differences.
Our made-to-measure service is available by appointment only to ensure we can provide the proper attention to you during your visit.
The first appointment consists of three parts: choosing the cloth, determining the details, and taking measurements. Whether you're looking for something for a wedding or work, summer or winter, we will offer advice to ensure the final garment is fit for its intended purpose.

Approximately 4 weeks after your initial consultation, we receive the basted garment, held together by loose, white 'baste' threads. At this stage, the suit is not in its final shape, allowing us to refine the fit as needed. During this fitting, we meticulously review your garment(s) to determine any necessary adjustments. We achieve this by pinning and applying chalk. Subsequently, the garment is shipped back to Italy, where further adjustments are made based on our findings.
The first fitting takes approximately 45 minutes.
After approximately 3-4 weeks, we will contact you to schedule a final fitting. During this appointment, we carefully review your garment(s) and assess the need for any alterations, which are then performed locally. We also consider potential alterations in adjusting the pattern for future orders.
The final fitting takes approximately 45 minutes.
After 7-10 days, the alterations that are made after the fittings are completed and the finished garment is completed.
This appointment takes approximately 15 minutes.
