THE HISTORY OF BESPOKE TAILORING

The History of Bespoke Tailoring

The idea of a man’s suit, which consists of a jacket and matching trousers made of the same garment, is largely credited to the British. This tradition is rooted in 400 years of history, traced back to the 1600s but has experienced several evolutionary changes throughout the last four centuries. The most significant evolution occurred in the early 19th century where the elements of the modern suit was popularised, which created huge demand among European men.

This demand ushered in a new era of grooming and style where men increasingly sought attire which were well tailored, personalised and unique. Today, British and European Men in London are showing increasing demands for a more personal connection with their clothing and are consulting experts in bespoke tailoring to achieve satisfaction.

Bespoke tailoring gathers the concept of traditional, impeccable craftsmanship and pride. There is something special about the process of being measured, choosing the details such as the right shoulder line, the lapel, the silhouette, going for fittings and culminating in an impeccable finish. The client benefits from a level of attention to detail and quality from skilled workers, that is simply not possible in a ready-to-wear garment.
