Ordering A Suit Online

No Alterations

Your options are very limited and you will pay more for any alterations.

Mass Produced

Constructed via industrial machines where quality and care is not the priority.

Cheap Construction

Most off-the-rack and made-to-measure suit makers reduce costs by eliminating the full-canvas feature.

Not The Best Fit

The most important aspect of a suit is the fit which is hard to achieve with standard sizes.

Quality That Lasts

All of the garments are made by hand

All suits and blazers and overcoats are full-canvas construction. A suit's inner canvas lining is what gives the suit its shape and form. A full-canvas garment lasts longer, breathes better, loses its wrinkles quickly, and allows for more natural movement and drape because its hand-sewn layers can move independently of one another. Most off-the-rack and made-to-measure suit makers reduce costs by eliminating the full-canvas feature. Instead, they "fuse" (or glue) the fabrics together in order to imitate the appearance of a fully canvassed jacket. This is the most important aspect of a well made tailored piece of clothing.

Construction & Fabrication

A 10 step pressing process & World-Class fabrics

The pressing process is a critical step in the overall look of your suit. When making our suits, each is put through a comprehensive 10 step pressing process which ensures each piece is molded to the natural shape of your body. In our goal to bring you the best we only work with the top wool mills in the world. These state-of-the-art mills abide by board set international standards when it comes to processing wool, so you can feel confident you are receiving the highest quality product every single time. Fine wools have a soft & luxurious hand feel, the fineness of the fibers makes for a lightweight fabric that is a perfect match for our suits. Wool has the amazing ability to react to climates and is able to regulate your temperature in both hot & cold environments. We've hand-selected fabrics that have a greater elasticity and are more wrinkle resistant. Not only does this give our suits a superior hand and drape, it means you'll look as good at the end of the day as you did when you first put it on.
