The bespoke process begins with an initial meeting. We’ll talk about the fabric and design elements of your suit, and I'll take some measurements. Then I'll draft your unique pattern by hand, cut your garment from the cloth, and assemble it for a fitting.
I usually do three or four fittings for a new client. In those fittings we’ll refine the fit and style of your garment. I'll keep your pattern on file and adjust it throughout our working relationship, so that future orders will require fewer fittings.
I do all of my own pattern making, cutting, and basting by hand, using the traditional methods I learned on Savile Row. I make shoulder pads and chest canvas myself, which requires an extraordinary amount of hand stitching, but it's the best way to give a garment a truly elegant shape.
