Many of you have clicked on this link because you want to know more about my custom-made suit service. While ready-to-wear garments are already made and have a predetermined pattern, style and cut, custom-made garments are produced individually for each customer with a unique pattern, design, fabric and construction. Whether this is your first custom-made garment (or not), be aware of course that it involves some waiting. Probably, you don't yet know all the possibilities (and constraints) related to the making of a tailor-made suit but be reassured ! This page has been created to help you to have a realistic representation and above all to make you want to take the lead and come and meet me meet me in a shop make a magnificent tailor-made suit, created especially for you.
I'll start with select the right template to get a good result. To best meet your expectations, I will be listening to your preferences . I will obviously propose you various options to be sure of the size that suits you and especially of all the details that will make your costume your own creation. Be aware that comfort is based on amplitude allowing movement. The look and feel of the costume are intrinsically linked: if you order several costumes, even if the cut is the same, the feel will be different. This difference comes from various factors such as the weight and elasticity of the fabric, the construction of the garment and the options of design.
NB: the fact that it is a new garment gives the impression of stiffness that a garment already worn will not have.
To be realistic, it takes between 45 minutes and one hour to place your order. Why?

Our workshop receives the strong of your order. A tailor cuts the fabric and the lining from the pattern. The fabric is cut separately for each order.
The tailors assemble the garment partly by hand and partly with the 'machine help depending on the type of construction chosen. Several checks measurements and other quality checks take place during this production phase to ensure the overall quality of the garment.
