Custom Women’s Overcoats

There is no doubt that we make the finest and most unique custom women’s overcoats that can be found anywhere, and each year we make coats for clients all around the world.

Women’s Gabardine Trench

The process starts with a sketch.

When we get an email from a client about having a coat made, the first step is to trade a couple emails to discuss the style, the weather where you live, and the durability and hand of various materials that we can mail to you to feel in person.

The style can be anything from a traditional trench coat to a caped inverness coat.  Anything from an asymmetrical 1920s style coat to something with a bit of 1960s mod styling.

1920s Style Asymmetrical Coat

For materials, we can use a cotton gabardine rainwear material, a handwoven Harris tweed, a heavy wool melton, a napped cashmere fabric or even a fur or a durable and luxurious faux fur (like the materials for the black coat pictured).

Once we have a design and are in the process of working through finding the perfect fabric, we will have you send a few measurements that you take at home (we can mail you a tape if you need one).

Then, depending on the style, we can also make an optional  “muslin” of the piece.  This is a cotton mock-up that we mail to you to try on.  You send us digital pics and your comments and we can revise the style as much as needed to get exactly the look you want.

Because we still do everything the traditional way and make each coat from start to finish here in our studio in Denver, Colorado, we can get exactly the fit and the style you want, no matter where you are or how different your body is from the clothing that is usually found in the shops.

If you would like to get started on a custom coat, just contact us and we can start working on some sketches.

The results have been amazing.

We have made women’s suits such as are not available anywhere else and have become a tailor of choice for professional women (especially lawyers!) and for lesbian women around the world who want a gorgeous suit to get married in.

Our suits can be modern, retro, elegant, mod, feminine, masculine, Victorian, traditional.  We will work with you to design the perfect suit for your taste and sketch ideas until we get the perfect look.

What is more, we use bespoke patternmaking techniques and create a unique pattern that is just for you.

You send us your basic measurements and we cut and sew a muslin prototype of the suit.  A kind of rough draft that we mail to you to try on.  You send us a few pics of yourself trying it on, and we modify the patterns to fit you exactly.

The result is a truly custom suit that is made for you in every way.

We can get virtually any type and color of fabric.  Just ask and we will start sending you swatches.
