What is bespoke tailoring?

What is bespoke tailoring?

27. April 2022 – POSTED IN: General

Bespoke tailoring as we know it today has existed since the early 19th century. Did you know that up to 225 work steps are necessary before you hold the finished suit in your hands?

Definition and explanation: Bespoke tailoring refers to the manual production of clothing. Until the late 19th century, tailoring was the only way to make suits.

In the 20th century, tailoring was almost completely replaced by ready-made clothing, i.e. industrially prefabricated clothing. Since the 1970s, bespoke tailoring has increasingly been replaced by made-to-measure clothing.

The main difference between bespoke tailoring and bespoke clothing is that the bespoke tailor makes a new personal pattern for each customer. This complex way of working enables a particularly high degree of individualization. However, it is only really necessary for a very small proportion of productions. This high degree of individualization means more time is required (at least three to five fittings are regularly required for a tailor-made suit) and a higher risk compared to made-to-measure clothing, since there are no uniform standards.

A visit to a bespoke tailor is particularly useful for men and women with unusual body measurements that deviate greatly from the norm. As a customer of a bespoke tailor, you should be able to express your desires accurately and in detail during the tailoring process. Every second person – including the tailor and you – has different ideas about how a “well-fitting suit” should really sit and where. The more precisely you can tell the tailor, the more precisely he can respond to your wishes.

Your perfect appearance at an important and big business meeting

Your perfect appearance at an important and big business meeting

Nowadays, the dress codes in everyday working life are less strictly regulated in many places than they used to be. We recommend that you inquire exactly what clothing is desired for which occasions.

If you take part in exclusive business events, score points with classic dark suits made of fine materials from our tailoring department. Alternatively, suits in dark blue or dark gray are suitable for large events.

Suits with pinstripes are also popular. Match it with a white shirt and wear a solid-colored tie that matches the shade of the suit. If you want to impress with a patterned tie, then wear a rather inconspicuous model. Your overall appearance should be restrained.

Our cufflinks refine your professional appearance. We advise you to be picky about your shoes. Leather lace-up shoes are extremely good for important professional appointments.

In a two- or three-piece suit, you will always look professional. Make sure the color of the belt and shoes match the color of the suit.

If you’re sightseeing, it’s best to wear a jacket. A classy polo shirt fits perfectly for this occasion. You feel comfortable in cotton or corduroy pants. They are a good choice for the occasion.

Alternatively, show yourself in high-quality, dark jeans. Combine the trousers with an exquisite turtleneck sweater and high-quality leather lace-up shoes.

Your professional appearance in everyday business

For an informal occasion, feel free to wear a nice polo shirt or a subtle sweater. You perfect your appearance with a matching day suit and first-class leather shoes with flat heels. If you like wearing classy jeans, wear them to a casual professional gathering.

For informal gatherings, choose fabrics with subtle patterns and subtle color combinations. In a suit or shirt with high-quality cotton trousers, you will appear in the best light for an after-work beer. You don’t have to wear your classy tie at an informal meeting with colleagues.

Do you work in an industry without specific dress codes? Nevertheless, make sure you look neat. With a pair of comfortable but high-quality trousers, you are definitely dressed appropriately. Combine the trousers from our tailoring department with exquisite sweaters or crease-free polo shirts, for example. Complete your look perfectly with a matching blazer.

Your noble and glamorous appearance on a festive occasion

Your noble and glamorous appearance on a festive occasion

You’ll shine at every festive occasion in a one- or two-row tuxedo from our tailoring department. We recommend that you choose a suit made of light fabrics, black or dark blue, for a concert evening. Your pants should be the same color as the jacket.

Your trousers will look classy if they have a simple strip of silk on the outer seam. Wear a white shirt with folding cuffs with your tuxedo. This is how you prove you have a good sense for high-quality fashion.

You can make your appearance particularly stylish on a festive occasion with a handsome waistcoat. In summer, you should preferably wear a backless vest so that you feel completely comfortable.

The accessories from our range make your tuxedo look particularly exquisite. It is best to combine your jacket with a black bow or a handkerchief made of white linen. Alternatively, choose a silk pochette. This looks particularly flattering and noble.

Black stockings go best with your dark colored suit. We advise you to wear black shoes with thin soles. With patent leather shoes you look exquisite and well equipped for a festive evening. For example, enjoy an opera in a tuxedo from our tailor-made shop.
