We base the process of creating
a custom-made shirt on our customer's preferences.
The Process begins with about 14 measurements and an interview to understand any particular needs our customer has.
The Style of each shirt varies, as there are many choices of collars, cuffs, stitching, pockets, plackets, buttons, tails, monograms and fit.
Custom-Made means that only when you are satisfied with the fit of a shirt or suit, do I complete your order.
We then make a unique paper pattern for each customer. This is the essence of custom made as distinct from made-to-measure.
On your first order, we always finish one shirt for a fitting. We then adjust your pattern, if necessary, and complete your order. Your paper pattern is now stored for subsequent orders which may be placed by phone or e-mail from swatches we send to you, or on visits to our store.
This is the process by which custom-made (or bespoke) garments have been made for hundreds of years.
