Made to Measure Suits – Our Process
Our specialty is unique Made to Measure Wedding suits with flair and individual touches that make the person, and make the day.
Made to measure Wedding suits have been gaining more and more attention in recent times. Our Made to Measure suits are just that – made to your measurements, they’re not a ready to wear suit tailored to your size, our suits are made to your size and only your size. We’re the closed thing to a bespoke suit without the price tag. You can view samples of our work here.
At your first consultation, Hunter Treacy Tailors will discuss recent fashion trends, the grooms preferences in terms of style and fabrics and will then take measurements to create the berfec tsuit.
This procedure gives the client more creative control than a ready to wear suit at a much lower cost than a fully bespoke suit.
The Made To Measure Process:
Step One – Fabric Selection of your Made to Measure Suit
Typically the first step on the agenda will be choosing your cloth from a selection of our 3,500 fabrics. The choice can boil down to a matter of weight or style so it is important to know what season your wedding will fall in before embarking on this journey. Our suits are all made with a traditional canvas construction so our suits are more breathable than cheaper suits on the market – this means you can wear a flannel in summer and enjoy the natural breath-ability of our woolen fabrics.
The fabric choice will decide what colour and pattern your finished garment will have. Typically the tailor will enquire on the level of construction needed such as it being half-lined or fully-canvassed or unstructured.
Step Two – Measurements – A careful process
Several measurements will be taken by your tailor in order to perfect the fit of the suit. Once the tailor has your chest, waist, seat measurements you will then try on a fitting suit matching your preferred construction preferences. This allows us to visualise and use this as a template of your own garment. The tailor will then pin it to shape exploring a fit that is specially tailored for your own body shape characteristics. The tailor will excess your height, build, posture and overall symmetry. These electives will establish the needs of the client and allow the tailor to construct the perfect garment for them.
Step Three – The Details of your Tailored Suit:
The final part of the consultation will allow the client to choose additional requests such as the number of buttons in the fastening, belt loops, cufflinks, the types of pockets and the type of finish. Typically 4-8 weeks later you will be called in for a final fitting for final adjustments and to decide on sleeve and leg lengths which of course can change depending on the type of shoe that will be paired with your Wedding suit.
Why Choose Made To Measure:
Made to measure is the perfect option for those who can afford to spend a little more, think in the region of €750 – €1,200 for a two or three piece suit, than a ready to wear suit but cannot justify the excessive spending capabilities that can occur with a full bespoke garment. A well crafted made to measure suit can pass as a bespoke garment depending on the quality of cloth used and the skill of the tailor crafting your wedding suit. It can be a daunting task trying to find your perfect Wedding suit from a ready to wear collection. With Made To Measure you can allow your creativity to flourish and work with a highly skilled tailor in order to craft the perfect suit for your Wedding Day. This can take the stress out of finding the perfect suit and become a fun element to your Wedding Day preparation.
