The Bespoke Tailor was set up with the understanding that the service provided to clients was of an exceptional value. Being in the industry since 1996, I have been lucky enough to see the tailoring industry from several different angles; from the shop floor, to high end corporate accounts to the designing. Having family members working within the U.K’s tailoring industry with some of the greatest names in the world, I have always been subject to incredibly made garments. My mother being an artist and my father being an engineer, there are similarities in both to what I do now; whether that be in the eye for design or the mathematics for the pattern cutting.
I am a very lucky guy. Dealing with Huddersfield’s best mills, who create the bests cloths in the world, I travel around the U.K dealing with my clients on a one to one basis offering the best tailoring service they could have. Each client is unique. Whether that is in the way the dress, the way they think or the way they present themselves, the best example of this is my experience in Brighton. My job is to get under the skin of the client to see what it is that they are trying to achieve; how do they wear their suits? What is the occasion for which the suit is to be worn? Do they travel a lot? Do they sit down a lot during their working day? On arrival to the clients home or place of work, we sit down and from then I can the type of person you are. Based on conversations to wallpaper in the lounge, I try to profile the client and only show fabrics that I feel suitable to your needs. Here at The Bespoke Tailor I have a series of questions that are asked to each and every client in order to truly understand which cloth is suited for which commission. With 5000 fabrics at any one time, I feel that I have cloth for each occasion and believe that cloth choice is a truly integral part of whether the suit will last or not.
From choosing the cloth, we’ll then talk about styling. With millions of choices at your disposal we can make something truly unique to you. Many tailors will only show you a set number of options: In my opinion, the suit belongs to the client and with that in mind will need to ultimately happy with the results. From ticket pockets to velvet, belt loops to the width of the pocket flaps, these all add up to make the garment that you are commissioning.
After our initial consultation, I will then supply the client with a Design Proposal. This will state each and every aspect of the tailored suit right down to a line drawing and a sample of the cloth. This allows you to then check over and ensure that I have understood the commission and to carry on to the fitting stage. Once given the green light, it’s off then to the workshop!
