A bespoke suit is quite simply a suit that is made exclusively for you. This means that you have total creative control over the process, though of course this is in partnership with your tailor. You can select your fabric and select the style, and you can even choose the finer details like the buttons or lining.
This may sound overly obsessive but in fact, up until the 1950’s, bespoke tailoring was the norm. And if you are willing to pay a premium for the fit and the quality, bespoke tailoring is very much worth the lengthy period of time it takes to create your suit - indeed, a bespoke suit can often last for life.
Famed Savile Row, in London, is the renowned mecca for high quality tailoring - people come from all over the world to experience having a suit made on the Row, and tailors Huntsman, Kilgour and Gieves and Hawkes are some of the oldest established businesses in the country.
