Why do you need a Bespoke Suit?

Bespoke suiting exudes personality and individuality in a way that sometimes an off the peg suit struggles to do with the same amount of success. Bespoke suiting boasts a plethora of exquisitely fine-tuned details that wouldn’t necessarily be thought of which can add a very personal edge to a suit that you will be certain to treasure forever.

A bespoke suit is definitely an emotional purchase, every element being hand-picked down to the last button, ensuring you walk away with a truly personalised garment. The premium quality of a bespoke suit will also contribute to the longevity of the garment, enabling it to be worn with confidence for many years. It is the epitome of an investment buy, one in which will enrich your sartorial endeavours and be a loyal companion to many a special occasion. So even if the suit was originally purchased for a particular event, you will find that it becomes a wardrobe essential in no time.

This offer really is an all-rounder, as this doubles up to be the perfect gift for someone special too. Whether it be Christmas or an upcoming birthday? You really can’t get a gift that is more personal to them!

Today, we’re sharing a guide to our bespoke tailoring process and the radical difference it makes when it’s time to shine.

A force to be reckoned with, a suitably suave trio in their GB bespoke suits.

What is a Bespoke Suit?

Any clothing retailer can offer a suit that looks great off the peg. Yet, unless it’s designed to fit your exact measurements, it could end up both uncomfortable and unsightly once you try it on. 

That’s why it pays to invest in Bespoke Tailoring.

We have a team of Expert Tailors at both our Shoreditch London and Brighton stores. When you choose the bespoke route, you’ll work with our tailors from the very beginning to create the perfect suit. We’ll spare no detail and take everything into consideration.

While the entire process takes around eight weeks, we can accommodate shorter timelines by special request by the customer. Let’s take a look at the process from start to finish.

Whether you’re creating a printed lining, suiting or shirting, we’ll help bring your ideas to life. We specialize in print design and woven jacquards!

Premium Cloths

While we have access to an extensive range of British milled cloths, we can also interpret a variety of other fabrics upon request. You can design your own print, insert panels, and add seams as desired!

Some of our premium fabric choices designed for suits and waistcoats include:

  • Mohair
  • Wool
  • Linen/ Cotton/ Silk

What is Mohair?

This luxuriously soft fabric is made from the hair of an Angora goats. Renowned around the world for its glistening sheen, mohair is also one of the most durable and great-wearing materials on the market!

It was huge in the 60’s – all the Mod’s wore Mohair and looked super sharp.

And by the way, did you know Mohair is James Bond cloth of choice? Give me a better reason to joining the Mohair club than that!

Prefer a wool suit? It’s one of the most timeless and attractive options, but it’s far from standard. As not all wool is created equal, let’s review how to discern the difference.

Understanding Worsted Wool and the Super System

In short, worsted wool is comprised of long fibres spun into a fine yarn. The result? A cloth that is sleek, refined and perfect for a variety of suit types. In addition to being attractive and versatile, worsted wool is also:

  • Breathable
  • Sturdy
  • Water-resistant
  • Wrinkle-resistant

If you’ve decided to use this fabric for your bespoke suit, your next step will be to navigate the Super System. These are the series of numbers that you’ve likely seen while shopping for a suit in the past. What do they mean?

The Super System is designed to represent the fabric’s fineness. Put simply, the number dictates how many times the wool has been twisted. As that count rises, so does the look and feel of the material. Still, all varieties possess the premium qualities of worsted wool.

For instance, a Super 180 suit will have a smoother appearance than a Super 80 suit, but that doesn’t mean the latter is lower quality. It will simply have a coarser and sturdier look. As a general rule of thumb, higher-number suits are reserved for more special occasions while lower-count varieties are ideal for regular, everyday use. 

As you do your research and browse your options, keep in mind that the Super System is not internationally standardised. Our team of tailors has its own guide and will advise you on the ideal number count that’s appropriate to your needs.

Design-Led Tailoring

There’s no designer touch we can’t add. Our tailors will take every consideration to help to create a design that fits your event and surpass your expectations. When you want to showcase your individual style, we’re your go-to Tailor!

While we pride ourselves in creating suits that “wow” on the outside, we know that true craftsmanship is in the details. That’s why we focus on the minute features that make a bespoke suit so special, including hand-sewn buttonholes, hand-stitched linings and turn-back collars.

We LOVE little accents of fun and will guide you with what works.  For example, our very special client Mr. Honey likes Bumblebees embroidered under his top collar. This is embroidered onto a melton, which can also be in a contrasting colour.

These personal touches make the suit YOURS.

Measurements and Fittings

Our team will normally require only one to two fittings to make sure your new suit fits exactly the way it’s meant to. Our professionals can utilise contemporary or traditional tailoring techniques depending on your preferences.

Our contemporary tailoring services are more modern in nature, offering enhanced flexibility over traditional tailors. We’ll create any pattern or style you desire, and make sure it fits like a charm before your big reveal.

With a traditional tailoring experience, we’ll create a personal pattern that fits your measurements. Then, we’ll construct the garment with a loose canvas, allowing it to mould perfectly to your body shape and movements. This way, you can rest assured that your suit will flow as effortlessly and stylishly as you do, all night long.
