All our garments are fully manufactured within the EU from UK and European fabrics.

Q7 How long does it take?  
 

On average 5-6 weeks depending on the fabric selected. We will always endeavour to meet a shorter specific delivery date. However we will not take an order unless we are confident that delivery will be to the agreed date.

Q8 Do you offer evening or weekend appointments?  
 

We normally visit customers either at home or their place of work, whichever is most convenient. Evening and weekend appointments are possible by prior arrangement.

Q9 How many fittings are there?  
 

There are two fittings. The first, when you are measured using the master model system. When your order is ready there is a second fitting to make sure everything is to your satisfaction.

Q10 How long does the initial fitting take?  
 

Normally around 1½ hours. We not only measure you but discuss how you like to wear your clothes, your style and fabric preferences.

 
  Top
Q11 Can you make any size garment?  
 

We can cope with most sizes; the tallest customer is 6' 9" and the shortest 4'. The largest chest/waist is 68" andthe smallest 28". We regard every customer as a normal individual irrespective of their shape or size.

Q12 Do you offer different style options?  
 

You can specify every last detail from working cuffs, lapels, buttons, pockets, vents, even down to the colour of your monogram embroidered in the jacket lining.

 
  Top
Q13 What happens if the garments need some alteration?  
 

We do pride ourselves on the accuracy of our fit. However should we need to make any final adjustment at the second fitting stage we will do so at at no extra charge.

 
  Top
Q14 What about repeat orders?  
 

We hold all your details on file, and as the cutting is computer controlled, we can accurately reproduce the same garments again. Of course if any measurements have changed we would do the necessary adjustments.

 
  Top
Q15 What happens if I gain or lose weight?  
 

The jacket and trousers have extra seam allowances which enable the sizing to be adjusted as required.

Q16 What is the difference between bespoke and made to measure?  
 

Many tailors claim their garments are 'bespoke' but in reality they are made to measure. True bespoke is a 'Savile Row' suit that is completely hand tailored with multiple fittings costing over £3000. Anything less than that is in reality made to measure, this is despite a recent high court ruling on the interpretation of the word 'bespoke'. It doesn’t really matter whether you wish to use the term 'bespoke or 'made to measure', with our technically advanced system you will receive high quality garments that will fit you whatever your shape or size.

Q17 Why are you such an advocate of modern engineered garments when other tailors offer hand tailoring?  
 

As former UK clothing manufacturers we know that modern machinery together with garment technology produces a consistent quantifiable quality every time. The same cannot be said for 'hand tailored' garments that are offered at similar prices.

 
  Top
Q18 I have heard about bespoke tailoring, but what is semi-bespoke?  
 

As far as the wearer is concerned, semi-bespoke is, in reality, made-to-measure. A semi-bespoke garment is more to do with the method of construction. Our garments would be classed as semi-bespoke. We can give a more detailed explanation on request.
