"ONE SHOULD EITHER BE A WORK OF ART, OR WEAR A WORK OF ART"OSCAR WILDE
Our Private Tailoring service provides a level of customer care and attention to detail usually afforded only to bespoke commissions. A service which prides itself on discretion, exclusivity and craftsmanship. Creating uniquely tailored garments, engineered to suit the requirements of the customer which are crafted to the highest specification in true Savile Row tradition.
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.
