My vision is to give every gentleman the opportunity, to create a wardrobe based on their unique body type and style. I offer you the power to express your personal style with affordable pricing, luxury fabrics, handcrafted footwear and service that comes directly to your location.
Each garment is made from a pattern cut from your specific measurements because no gentleman is built the alike.
World famous fabrics are used in each suit construction, such as Lora Piana, Zegna, Reda and Giovani. My basic suit is woven Super 110s wool, but I offer up to a Super 150s wool. Which is comparable to Savile Row, the UK Royal standard.
Bemberg linings are used in each jacket, made from the highest quality natural cotton liner material, which is the signature of today’s modern high-end menswear.
Every suit uses a top-half canvas construction and over 100 quality assurance verification's are completed to ensure that each product will last. I'm dedicated to providing products of the highest quality that do not deteriorate over time.
In order to increase durability in each suit’s construction, a horse hair lining is used. Which is known for its “memory” and keeps the suit looking new with the same elegant drape each time you wear it.
The first step in creating your custom garments, is getting to know you and your needs.
· What’s your occupation?
· Where will you be wearing the garment/s? (Work, night out or both)
· Will you be travelling? (Warm or cold climate)
· What are the colors & patterns you currently own? (Suits, blazers, shirts etc.)
Fabric selection will include information on the weight, fabric sourcing, super number and what it all means.
-The Weight determines how often the garment should worn and in what climates.
- The Sourcing is where the fabric is milled. (Europe & Australia)
-The Super Number describes softness and fineness of the fabric. This is based on micron count, which is the diameter of each fiber strain.
· Garment details are based on each client’s personal preferences and style.
The options include, but are not limited to:
- Lapel style
- Pocket style
- Jacket style
- Lining style
- Sleeve buttons
- Cuff style
- Pic stitching
- Contrasting stitching and fabric
- Fit (loose, fitted or slim)
Measurements and Construction
·Over 16 measurements are taken with extreme care to ensure a perfect fit with every garment. As measurements are performed, we confirm the comfort level with each one. Starting with the neck measurement and ending with pant bottom width.
Suit & Shirt Construction
-Each garment begins with a pattern cut by master tailors from your measurements. This is a very important step, because the pattern cut can only be used for a specific client and can be saved for future orders.
-Every jacket starts with a half canvas chest piece, but a full canvas is available.
-Reinforced stitching is used throughout.
Linings, Button holes, Cuff button holes, Pockets, etc.
-A light weight cotton is used in the shoulder pads, providing a natural shoulder slope.
-Trousers are lined 3/4 down the front, but a full lining is available for the colder climates. The waist band has a inner fusing to withstand bubbling and a rubber strip is attached to keep your shirt tucked in. A heel guard is also attached to reduce wear at the bottom of the trousers.
-Each shirt has inner fusing in the collars, cuffs and placket. This ensures they stand strong through dry cleaning or home washing. Reinforced stitching is used throughout.
