The fit is slim, slimmer than most US retail brands including Polo Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic, and J. Crew. It is on par with Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren Black Label, Brooks Brothers Black Fleece, H&M and Zara.
The sizes do not correspond exactly with our shirts; their rough equivalents are listed below. Measurements are in inches.
The most important measurement is the shoulder as we can't modify that significantly, unlike all other measurements. So it's best if you can measure a jacket that fits you well from shoulder seam to shoulder seam and compare with the below measurement chart.
Unlike most brands, we don't do vanity sizing. Many customers find it necessary to order one size larger than what they wear in other brands. Measure a pair of trousers that fit you well across the waistband. A 34" waistband will take size 34 trousers.
The RTW trousers are slightly slimmer.
We can make custom suits based on your measurements. The price is the same as the ready-to-wear suits and will take about three weeks.
Unlike other custom tailors, we prefer to first send you one of our ready-to-wear suits for you to try on, and then you can note measurement modifications based on that (e.g. +1" waist, -0.5" sleeve, etc.). This allows us to have a very good chance of making your first suit fit perfectly. Whereas the more common method of simply submitting a set of measurements typically results in ill-fitting, unwearable suits for the first one or two iterations, and is a waste of your time and money.
To get started, take a look at the above measurements and order the trial suit in the size that will fit you best. If it just happens to be perfect, then keep the suit. If not, return it and we'll make you a new suit with your desired modifications.
When you receive the suit, send us photos and we'll work out what measurements need to be changed. No expertise required.
If you wish to skip the trial suit and have the custom suit made directly, we don't recommend it but can do so.
