How long will it take to have my suits and shirts to be ready?
Bespoke suits - It generally takes about 8-12 weeks depending on the client's availability for an appointment.
MTM suits - about 3 to 5 weeks depending on the fabrics. (Italy, England...)
Shirting - about 3 to 4 weeks depending on the fabrics.
What is the difference between 'Bespoke' and 'Made To Measure' (MTM)?
Bespoke: It means a suit that has “been spoken for”. Bespoke is when one tailor creates a suit from scratch for one person. This usually takes multiple fittings as the pattern is drafted directly on the person.
- hand work used almost entirely on all garments.
- the individual cut of a paper pattern.
- unlimited customization.
- personal service such as qualified advice.
MTM: This is a completely different process than bespoke as it does not involve one on one tailors fitting you personally. Made to measure is based on pre-set patterns. The pre-set pattern is scaled up or down based on your measurements. There is generally more machine work involved in made-to-measure garments and a limited amount of hand work; as a result they tend to be less expensive than their bespoke counterparts and therefore serve as a good introductory customized garment for a lot of men.
- short lead time.
- lower price than Bespoke.
- limited but customized design, and fit.
What is Canvas?
Canvas is a lightweight, resilient interlining that helps a jacket conform to your body's shape and keep it from becoming deformed, giving you a natural & nice look.
What is the difference between 'Full Canvas' and 'Fused' suits?
CANVAS is cut to the jacket’s shape, then wool is stitched to the canvas, so it holds the shape of the suits well, and keeps it from sagging or deforming, much like the foundation of a house keeps it upright. Canvas allows the suit fabric to drape naturally, giving the wearer more natural freedom of movement, and increasing the lifespan of the jacket. It is obvious that Canvas is better than Fused in every way, except possible puckering from humidity (less in thick wools, more in thin wools), however, that is also natural character, and style of Canvas suits.
- Pros: natural look, natural movement, longer lifespan.
- Cons: sensitive to humidity (puckering)
FUSED suits are made with a fusible interlining that is glued to the outer wool fabric of a suit to provide the front structure to the jacket. (Same structure as brands’ suits, even designer label ones). Fused suits keep a jacket front shape better with adequate stiffness than Canvas, however, it is the fact that the glue degrades over time, or may come unstuck during the dry-cleaning or pressing process. The potential for that phenomenon known as “bubbling” is an important factor to take into account when deciding Fused suits.
- Pros: clean look (with front stiffness).
- Cons: slight risk of delamination (bubbling).
