The service begins with an initial consultation. Customers are introduced to a member of the Private Tailoring team at Gieves & Hawkes to discuss their personal style preferences, their lifestyle and thus their requirements for the suit. This tailoring consultant will personally manage the commission from start to finish.
Once a garment’s style has been selected, the cloth is chosen from one of the hundreds of fabrics available.
Next, a variety of measurements are taken across the customer’s entire body to ensure a superb fit. If the customer has a personal preference; if he favours a slightly more streamlined or closer garment – or indeed the opposite – this is taken into account and the designs adjusted.
After eight to ten weeks the customer is invited back to Gieves & Hawkes for his fitting and can experience the suit he commissioned. The Private Tailoring consultant will make any further adjustments as required to ensure that the suit doesn’t leave Gieves & Hawkes until it is absolutely perfect.
