Why Made to Measure?
A custom made suit is a luxury everyone should experience at some point in their life and Made to Measure is a wonderful place to start.
The suit is cut from a block altered according to your individual requirements. If you like a slim fit and a short trouser - we’ve got you. Alternatively, perhaps you crave a 1930’s look, with a full length jacket and a wide lapel - very Fred Astaire! Whatever it is you are looking for, Kipper & Chalk can make it a reality. Choose your style, cloth, lining and trimmings from our extensive range.
How do you know Made to Measure is for you?
Made to Measure Tailoring is for you if you are discerning about fit.
Although having a Ready-to-Wear suit tailored is a great idea, it is no substitute for something which is cut with you in mind. Don’t settle for less than a perfect fit.
Made to Measure is for you if you don’t want to look like everyone else.
Anyone can buy an off-the-peg suit, which means everyone you know could have bought the same one as you. A Made-to Measure suit can be built to your exact specifications. Do you have an event coming up where you’d like to stand out from the crowd? Perhaps you are getting married/performing Stand Up/going to a Where’s Wally convention - whatever it is we can make sure you are the star of the show.
Made to Measure is for you if you want luxury at an affordable price.
Our cloth merchants have been producing the finest cloth for generations, often right here in the UK. Many High-Street tailoring brands cut corners here to save money but no amount of good tailoring can make up for poor materials. We use the same cloth merchants as Savile Row so all of our suits feel as good on the outside as they do on the inside.
How it Works:
Step 1 - Coffee
Whatever the occasion: work, wedding, school reunion, we will help you design the perfect suit.
There is no obligation to take the order any further at this stage so we thoroughly recommend meeting up for a chat even if you aren’t sure whether Made to Measure is for you.
Step 2 - The Cloth (the fun bit)
Our experienced tailors will help you chose the right fabric for you. Whether it is the perfect shade of navy, a Prince of Wales check or a retro chalk stripe, we will help you find exactly what you are looking for in a weight and composition which best suits you.
Once you have the cloth for the suit, it’s time to get creative choosing colours or patterns for your lining. Or explore our Bespoke Lining options.
Step 3 - The Measuring
Once you know what you’re looking for it’s time to get the fit right. Using our carefully developed samples, we will take up to 35 measurements and take account of your posture, sleeve pitch and shoulder height to make sure your suit fits you beautifully.
Step 4 - The Fitting
The suit will be ready for your fitting 4-6 weeks after your initial consultation. (However, we know how busy life can be so, for an additional fee, it may be possible to expedite the process.)
Prior to your fitting, your suit will have been cut by lasers (!) and made up by skilled tailors to ensure an accurate fit. If any tweaks are required after your fitting they will be done by our London atelier within 2-3 weeks.
Once perfected, all that is left is for you to stand back and await the onslaught of compliments!
