Whilst in the U.S.A
I travel to the USA to offer my clients who live there the very best of service. I have planned trips for January/February, May and October.
Commissioning a Savile Row suit in the USA
I have been traveling to the USA continuously for nearly two decades, tri-yearly and in that time I feel that I have perfected the system for commissioning a bespoke Savile Row suit overseas.
How it works
You would need to contact me for an appointment preferably prior to my arrival by email.
The first consultation will take place in my hotel suite when I will be happy to show you samples of my work, discuss your bespoke requirements whether it be for a formal suit, overcoat, sports jacket or dress wear or in fact any other item of bespoke clothing.
After we have established your requirements I will then show you an extensive range of cloth to select from. You will also have an opportunity to select a body lining.
I will then take your measurements and a note of your posture. This will enable me to cut your paper pattern on return to London. The paper pattern, I keep on file and I will use it for future orders.
I will bring out your fittings on my next trip for you to try on and we will make sure that you are satisfied with the progress. The adjustments are chalked on the suit and a written note is added to your file. The fitting I will bring back to my London cutting room. Where, I rip it down, press, smooth and re-cut both the cloth and the pattern as necessary.
When the client and I are completely satisfied with the fitting, I will go ahead and finish the suit and send by courier. On my next visit, I like to see the suit on the client. This is so I can ensure that it is a perfect fit.
“Having a bespoke Savile Row tailor made suit is a great experience, and one that is enhanced by Steven’s knowledge experience and his easy manner. I am impressed with his attention to detail and his willingness to accommodate my busy schedule. He is a pleasure to work with.”
