The importance of a well-fitting suit cannot be overstated. Which is why we’re incredibly excited to launch made-to-measure suiting, where you’re given the opportunity to bring the suit (or sport coat) of your dreams to life. Made-to-Measure gives you a large selection of fits and fabrics along with the option to customize your suit or separates down to every small detail. Read on for a step-by-step of the made-to-measure suiting experience.
Book an Appointment
Custom suits are offered by appointment only, and you can book painlessly online or by calling our stores. The initial appointment will take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour to get the right measurements and allow enough time for you to browse the fabric options. Made-to-Measure suiting appointments are currently offered during store hours at our Broad St. flagship location and for a limited time, at Ledbury Georgetown.
At your initial appointment, our suiting specialist will take four basic measurements – chest, jacket waist, hip, and pant waist. Our suiting stylists have been trained by a made-to-measure expert from Italy, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the most precise fit made to your specifications. After measurements are taken, you will be fitted in a sample suit or sport coat to ensure the proper fit.
We designed our made-to-measure lounges for optimum comfort. Sink into that leather couch, sip some Bulleit, and get ready to design your dream suit. We know that the right music can help you get into the right head space, which is why we have a stellar turntable and audio setup from Fern & Roby, along with a staff-curated vinyl collection.
Get Down to Details
This is where it gets really fun. Next up, you have the opportunity to browse over 200 options of fine European fabrics all sourced from Italian mills. You can choose classic navy and charcoal wool suits to splashier looks like windowpane, houndstooth, hopsack weave, nailhead fabric, and more. You can also customize the jacket lining, buttons, stitching colors, pocket style, lapel style…the possibilities are endless. Need a dinner jacket with velvet lapels in your life? We got you. Need to outfit the groomsmen in your wedding party? We love hosting wedding parties – and offer exclusive wedding discounts too.
After your appointment, we send your order off to our Italian mill where it’s handcrafted to your exact specifications. It will take 5-6 weeks after your custom fitting appointment to receive your completed suit or sport coat. Your made-to-measure profile is automatically saved in our system so you can easily re-order suits in new styles or seasonal fabrics. That means if you book today, you’ll have a fresh custom suit just in time for spring.
