Ensure a Perfect Fit with our Made to Measure Service
“Made to measure” can be known as several things: ‘ready made to measure’, ‘personal tailoring’, ‘customised tailoring’ etc. The main difference between made to measure and bespoke is that the garment is machine made, using an adapted block pattern.
Stewart Christie & Co offer a made to measure service in addition to our in house bespoke work room. We use a long established traditional manufacturer (based in Leeds in the Midlands of England, a traditional centre of tailoring and menswear manufacture) to carry out the work on our machine made garments.
Made to measure can be a very effective way of ordering more personalised tailoring at a lower price point than bespoke, although it is not suitable for all body shapes. It is based on a “block” similar to that of high quality off the peg clothing. If you are lucky enough to fit the off the peg templates reasonably well, then made to measure is a credible option. A full set of measurements is taken, styling and detail is discussed with our knowledgeable staff, cloth is then selected and the order sent to manufacturer.
If a fitting is required we will advise you of a time to come in after we have received the first make from the manufacturer. The make up time is quicker than that of bespoke, running at approx. 6 – 8 weeks, including fitting. As a rough guide, made to measure prices average at £800 for a suit, £650 for a tweed jacket and £600 for a blazer. This is the same price as many other brands, but they are out sourcing in China. We guarantee the same prices but for a fully honest British made cloth and fabric. This is a strong policy of ours.
If you would like to make an appointment over the phone or by email, then see below, or better still come in to our store in Edinburgh, Scotland and discuss your made to measure tailoring options with us and choose from a wide range of patterns and cloths. And meet our specialist tailors who will create the magic
