The Benefits of Custom Hand Tailored Suit

Fabric Selection

When it comes to choosing the right fabric for your suit, there are a few things to consider apart from the obvious colour and pattern. First, think about the occasion and the climate. For formal events, wool is a classic choice, while linen or cotton are great for warmer weather. Next, consider the weight and texture of the fabric. A heavier fabric will drape differently than a lighter one, and a textured fabric can add visual interest to your suit. Choosing the correct fabric will result in better comfort. Our team will discuss all aspects of this with you to ensure you have the best fabrics for the occasion.

Lining & Personalisation

Personalized lining, piping choices, and custom monogram embroidery inside a jacket can make a suit more special and unique. These details allow you to express your individuality and style, and for weddings, they can be coordinated with the wedding theme to create a cohesive look. Adding these personal touches to your suit will make it truly one-of-a-kind and memorable.

Buttonholes & Working Cuff

Having a working cuff on a suit jacket adds a touch of sophistication and is the hallmark of a custom or high end suit. Normally you will find the sleeve buttons are merely sewn on top and not functional. The option to change the colour of the lapel and sleeve buttonhole thread adds a personalized touch to your suit, making it unique to your style.

Lapels - Width & Style 

Choosing the right lapel style and width can make a big difference in overall look of your suit. Notch lapels are the most common and versatile option, while peak lapels add a touch of formality and shawl lapels are perfect for black tie events. The width of your lapel should be proportionate to your body type and the style of your suit. A wider lapel can make a bold statement and is often a sign of a custom tailored suit. I mid width lapel will fall roughly midway between the neck and the shoulder bone.

Style - Single or Double?

Single-breasted jackets are a classic choice for a sleek and modern look. They are versatile and can be dressed up or down depending the occasion. Double-breasted jackets, on the other hand, are a more formal option that exudes elegance and sophistication. They are perfect for special events and occasions where you want to make a statement. Ultimately, the choice between a single or double-breasted jacket comes down to personal preference and the occasion.
