Despite our design and production team’s constant efforts to produce clothing to fit as broad a standard size as possible it is very clear that some of us will need our clothing to undergo more than a slight alteration to look our best. It is the nature of formal tailoring, with it’s close fitting jackets, body skimming waistcoats and critical lengths of hems, sleeves and trouser legs, that often necessitates some form of custom-make. If our ready-to-wear collection and alteration service fall short of the high standards we expect from the fit of our garments for you, our tailors hand-cut to your specific measurements in our London work rooms.
Upon your first visit to our Jermyn Street stores, in consultation with our highly trained staff, you can decide which of our made-to-measure services will be best suited to both your body shape and budget. Following initial measurements, it is at this stage that linings, buttons and other details are specified, your garments will be prepared for fitting. These will then be pinned and marked to fit you at your fitting appointment, approximately four weeks from the time your measurements were taken. Back in the workroom in Whitechapel, your garments will be finished and returned to the store for your final approval and collection, again approximately four weeks later.
