Pant and Vest Suits

Sometimes you want to look sharp, distinctive, unique. And there is nothing better than a custom-tailored suit to achieve this look.

But women’s suits are usually about half as nice as men’s suits and are cut from cheaper fibers and without the distinctive details. This is especially true if you are outside of stock sizes or don’t have the money to buy something by Chanel.

Women's Pant and Vest Suit

Our suits are the answer to this. We can make them a bit retro or in a fin-de-siecle style.

We can make them contemporary or ultra modern. We can pretty much do anything. And although our suits are more expensive than women’s department store suits, they are cut from fine wools and silks and are fully tailored and structured using quality menswear techniques that we have spent years perfecting.

Women's Pant and Vest Suit

Check out our men’s suit shop, Denver Bespoke, for more of our men’s styles and fabrics. Almost anything that you see can be transformed into an awesome women’s suit as well. We can get virtually any type of fabric in any color and can make vest with collars, unique pockets, and various cuts.

Contact us today to start building a suit in your size and in your choice of fabrics. A vest suit in this style will typically be about $725 including having us make a muslin for fitting. We send the muslin to you for feedback and pictures and then make a completely custom pattern, assuring the ultimate fit.

Even in Plaid for Swank!

So you want something special this Fall and Winter…. Just write to us and ask.

We can make pretty much anything and can make it in your size. When the fit is difficult, we make the jacket in cotton muslin for $100 extra and send that to you for feedback before starting the final piece.

Let us know if you want tweed, or a solid color melton, or even leather or shearling (which cost a bit more). Tell us what colors you like, whether you like zippers or buttons or want a hood or fur trimming.

And we will sketch up some ideas and send swatches until we come up with the perfect thing.

A price of $625 is the average for fully lined woolens and a $100 muslin fitting may also be added for the best custom fit.


Some options may be a bit more and some a bit less, just contact us and we will quote you a price for your project.

The Redingote

Our coats, handmade in Denver, Colorado, can be customized in every way.  You get what you want, the way that you want it whether in wool, leather, corduroy or the fabric of your dreams.

Any type of special size, whether plus size or petite is always available.

But this is one of our most popular style.  A bit Victorian, a bit modern.  When we introduced it in our sportswear store, Vigilante Laboratories, we started selling them immediately and have made dozens of variations to match differing tastes.

Warm and fashionable, this coat is cut in multiple panels for an exceptionally full skirt and a snug upper body.

The word “redingote” represents what the words “riding coat” must sound like to the French, and is the Parisian high-fashion take on English equestrian wear.

Made from soft wool coating and with a classic design, this coat will look great for many many years.
