Bespoke - Custom Made Mens Suits
Custom tailoring or the British term, “bespoke” tailoring is defined as a garment cut by hand for an individual, by an individual.
A true bespoke suit is constructed by hand by one tailor using measurements and patterns taken from a client's physical form. Since the tailor taking the measurements is the same person making the suit, every detail of a person's body is considered in the construction of the garment. After the initial measurements, in some cases, it will take six to eight weeks for a prototype and the first fitting, and as long as six months to receive the final suit.
If your price range is $4,000 and up, you can afford to hire an established reputable tailor to make you a custom suit out of the most exquisite cloth available that will last for more than ten years.

London’s Savile Row is a name that conjures up images of elegance, tradition, old world charm and sophistication.
The first tenants of Savile Row were military officers, a number of military widows and a quota of nobility. Since the very first bespoke tailor moved into Savile Row back in 1785, the area has been renowned world - wide as the ‘place’ for tailoring.
Visitors come from far and wide to have suits handmade from the finest cloths by the most highly skilled of craftsmen.
Each tailor’s goal is to produce a suit which enhances its wearer. Explain Savile Row’s Dennis Hadbey, “If a client wears one of my suits out of the shop and a friend compliments him on it, I’ve failed. Our clothes should look, as if they were donned without care. They shouldn’t call attention to the wearer in any way.”
