The bespoke process begins with the initial consultation. Clients are seen privately and by appointment, which ensures our meeting is comprehensive. During this time, I will gain an understanding of the garment's intended purpose. We select lining & cloth from a wide range of luxury fabric mills. Additionally, I take a complete set of measurements while taking note of stance and posture.
After the initial consultation, the work truly begins. I start by drafting a unique pattern which mimics my client's anatomy. The hand-crafted design is one distinguishing characteristic that elevates the bespoke suit as a luxury good. Suits that are made-to-measure or produced in a factory will use stock and block designs.

Next, I methodically mark the pattern on the cloth. To increase the accuracy at this stage, I take note of the individual physicality of the client. With a steady hand & quality sheers, I begin to cut. Precision is paramount. All trimmings, linings and body canvas are now ready to assemble.
The bespoke suit is now complete and ready to be picked up. The client is welcome to try on the finished piece to ensure everything is to their satisfaction. A completed piece will only leave my shop once my client is pleased with the results.
