Do you remember or have you ever imagined standing in a tailor's, waiting for your inside leg, waist and chest to be measured, whilst staring intently at the wall, wishing they would just hurry up so you can go home? All so you can have the pleasure of forking out a massive chunk of cash for your 'bespoke tailored' suit? It's definitely not on the top of my list of favourite things to do. Now, thanks to the nice people at 'A Suit That Fits', things are beginning to change.
Bespoke tailoring has long been the preserve of stuffy Saville Row tailors. Just take a look at that ancient pair of scissors above and you'll see how far back the art of tailoring goes. In the early 19th century, British tailors were using steam, pressure and padding to mould woollen fabrics around the body. In the 1980s, when the high street sensed the need for suits at affordable prices, all this went out the window with the introduction of the 'ready-to-wear'. Here at ‘A Suit That Fits’ our approach falls somewhere between Saville Row and the High Street. We want to uphold the ancient art of tailoring whilst offering prices that customers can afford.
We're basically a group of young men and women who feel disgruntled by the price of tailored suits. We want to offer our customers affordable bespoke tailored suits without them having to fork out huge amounts of cash. Why, after all, should bespoke tailoring remain the preserve of those who can afford expensive Saville Row tailors when the rest of the British class system has, understandably, gone down the pan?
Jokes aside, our unique online process means that you can design and order your bespoke suit without having to step inside a tailor's. Give us your measurements and your style preferences, and with the help of our specially-designed 'Wizards' you can create the look you want. Our 'classic model' cashmere and satin suits start from £110. The price increases as you add extras, and you can add as many or as few as you wish.
