Suit Services FAQs
Q: What is Traditional Bespoke?
A: Bespoke is individual and distinctive. The Traditional Bespoke pieces we make are not from a selection of pre-set styles, but are tailored to a client’s sensibility. Unlike other services the process is overseen step-by-step by our design team, providing guidance (to you) at every stage. Traditional Bespoke Suits are hand-made with every detail hand-stitched. The process can take up to six to eight months. Controlling the creative process and having each piece made by Master Tailors right here in Canada is key to an exceptional end result.

Q: What is Contemporary Bespoke?
A: Contemporary Bespoke suits are similar to made-to-measure garments. Our Contemporary Bespoke Suits are custom-made according to your precise measurements and postural assessment. You choose the fabric/lining and tailoring details according to the look you want to achieve. Our Contemporary Bespoke suits offer a wide array of customization options.

Q: Can I buy a “ready-to-wear” suit online?
A: Absolutely. It’s very important to know your measurements before placing your order. Contact us through our social channels or by giving us a call and we can walk you through taking your measurements so you can buy the suit that’s right for you. All this being said, we do recommend you stop by the shop to ensure the perfect fit.
Q: How do I care for my suit properly?
A: Hang it up after every wear on the hanger provided by us. Dry clean only when necessary and make sure to remove the plastic when it comes back from the cleaners as the plastic can emit fumes and weaken the fibers. Get more details here.
