When one is judging a suit the three fundamental things to look for are: harmony of shape and styling, a flattering cut and silhouette and a correct balance and proportion. Then comes the correct choice of cloth, appropriate trim and of course, expert construction and finishing. Only true bespoke tailoring can give this amount of attention to all aspects of making a suit. The drape of the sleeve, the line of the shoulder and how the collar and lapel roll to just above the top button without a hint of tension.

You cannot even see most of the work, it is hidden inside. But it is the hours of patient hand stitching, shaping and pressing that sets bespoke tailoring apart. Only when you slip on a bespoke jacket can you fully appreciate the difference as it falls effortlessly into place and becomes part of you.
