A Buyers Guide to Semi Bespoke Suits
We offer three grades of tailoring and our semi bespoke suits, also known as our half hand stitched suits, offer an entry into the world of luxury bespoke tailoring. One step up from our entry price point machine stitched suits, our semi bespoke suits offer some of the finer finishes of bespoke tailoring but without the fully bespoke price tag.
Unlike our machine stitched (or made to measure) suits, which are constructed on a production line, our semi bespoke suits are made by our team of highly skilled coat makers. The coat makers will stitch, finish and press the suit with your individual body shape in mind, resulting in an overall cleaner looking and better fitting garment.
Like our machine stitched suits, the semi bespoke suits have a half canvas, but rather than being stitched by machine the chest is padded by hand. This creates a web of stitches that build a curvature into the chest where a machine stitched suit would hang flat. This curvature greatly improves the shape, fit and silhouette of the suit.
Finishing is one of the key assets of the semi bespoke suit option, will also be done by hand. With a beautiful raised lapel button hole (rather than a flatter machine stitched one) and subtle hand stitching on the lapel, jacket edge and pockets your suit will clearly stand out from the crowd. These more than anything are the more obvious details that earns our semi bespoke suits their hand crafted bespoke stripes.
This higher grade of construction is available for just £200 on top of the machine stitched suit price. An investment on the journey to a fully bespoke experience.
