AND THE CHOICE OF 100,000 FABRICS

MADE IN ENGLAND, ITALY, OR THE USA

We use heritage fabric by brands like Scabal, Holland & Sherry, Abraham Moon, Harris Tweeds, Hainsworth, Burlington Raeford, and Woolrich.  Anything from the very most durable military wools to the most luxurious wools with the smoothest hand and most beautiful drape.

Fabric that is still made the way that it ought to be made (often woven by small collectives in Yorkshire or Scotland) from the best materials in the world (generally, the finest merino wool from Australia and New Zealand).

THE MYSTIQUE OF THE BESPOKE SUIT

No other type of garment has the same mystique associated with it.

And for good reason.

A bespoke suit owes its whole reason for being to the wearer.

It is built, not for the average person but for you. For your body. For your life and the events to which you will wear it.

From the lapel shape, to the fabrics, from the pockets (which can be designed around the things you wish to carry in them) to the color of the thread, a bespoke suit is a symbol of your life and your taste.

You tell us about yourself and we begin to sketch.

What will emerge from the process is something entirely new and distinct.

THE LIMITS OF A BESPOKE SUIT LIE SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE CLIENT’S AND TAILOR’S IMAGINATION

The Muslin Process

Next we cut and sew a cotton prototype of the suit called a “muslin”.  If you are a long distance client, we mail this to you and you send us some photographs like this one, so that we can adjust every detail of the look and fit.

The muslin prototype or trial garment is the essence of what differentiates a truly bespoke fit.  This is how we adjust for your posture, shoulder shape, and the way that your arms hang when you are relaxed.

Women’s Bespoke

It is almost impossible to find a women’s suit that is equal to an excellent men’s suit.

The fabrics are never quite as nice—-most often, they are not even wool—and the selection of colors, stripes, and plaids is often totally lacking.

The lapels and structure are never quite as crisp.

The fit is either that of a cropped and stretchy business suit or that of a men’s suit in a woman’s size—–with a fit in the shoulder and bust that never quite works.

Our approach is completely different.

We combine womenswear patterning with true menswear tailoring and exquisite English and Italian fabrics.

The Sewing Process

Depending on the project and the price point, the pieces can be sewn mostly by machine or almost entirely by hand with nothing more than a needle and a thread.

No assembly line.  Just a handful of craftsmen and women who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of material perfection.

Everything is done here in our studio in Denver—-Nothing is outsourced.

Even our machines are lovingly recreated by hand starting with 1940s and 50s-era machines.

In the End, You Just Send Us a Message with a Few Words about What You Want.

And then we sketch it, and discuss many possible designs.  Then we send you fabric options.

Have you take a few simple measurements at home.  Mail you a muslin.  Discuss and correct the fit.

And finally we mail you the finished suit or you drop in to pick it up.

Not as easy a dropping by the shopping mall.  But a bit more satisfying.

And we promise that you won’t end up looking like everyone else.
