How it works
"Made-to-measure is all about precision - in fit, in style, in Suiting Yourself!
It should express your character, and sartorial personality.”
Made-to-Measure tailoring was created over 60 years ago to bridge the gap between ready-to-wear and bespoke tailored suits. It has since become the go-to option for men chasing a suit that has the tailored fit - and sartorial signature - of something "made specially for me".
Rather than making a pattern from absolute scratch (which happens in bespoke tailoring), Made-to-Measure uses a variety of try-on suit shapes that are then precision altered based on your morphology (shape) and fit preferences. From this, a unique pattern (or block) is made which takes into account your posture, the slope of your shoulders, and a dozen other body measurements. Based on this technical information, your selected garments are then custom cut and made-to-measure. An added benefit of made-to-measure, is that you are able to customize many details (fabric, lining, buttons, style elements, etc.) in order to make your garment reflect your own style and personality.
After assessing your needs and preferences, Charles or Chloe will guide you through the customization process. With a myriad of fabrics handpicked from the finest European mills, and a full range of customization details, there's every opportunity for you to express yourself through your looks.
Once the fabric is selected, you will be measured for fit. Based on your exact measurements, your personal pattern will be created. It’s the precision of this pattern that enables us to create a made-to-measure suit worthy of the name. Made-to-measure is about finding the right balance between fit & comfort. In order to enhance your silhouette, we take into consideration your body attitude, posture, shoulders' slope, and combine it with a precise set of measurements.
After reviewing the customization details (i.e. lapels, pockets, linings, contrast accents, buttons, monogramming...), the making of your garments can begin...

Our distinctive garments are based on the Euro-trim silhouette and all jackets feature a full-canvas construction which adds elegance and structure to the jacket. The combination of tapered shape, soft-shoulder padding, and highly-positioned armhole, is an excellent choice for the man-about-town wishing elegance and figure-flattering style.
