How Handmade Works

The handmade process

Our handmade custom tailored suits are perfect for the truly discerning connoisseurs and those to whom details matter most. Everything about our handmade suits shouts personalization and refinement. Using the same traditional Italian construction, we shape the chest piece with canvas layers interwoven with horsehair. To look good and fit exceptionally well, a chest piece that molds itself to the wearer’s chest is essential.

With our Perfect Fit guarantee, we take special care to ensure that the final product is not simply created from basic measurements. We focus on the way you naturally carry your body and how your body is built to achieve an exceptional, comfortable fit that looks and feels better than anything you’ve worn before.

Basted Lapels

Basted Lapels

By attaching the canvas to the lapels with a degree of tension, we create the famous “rolling” lapel. We lengthen the jacket’s collar so we can turn back the ends, hiding the contrasting felt from view when the suit is worn. The jets of the inside pockets extend into the facing – this extra step makes the inside pockets closer to the front and easier to reach, a feature rarely found in today’s suit market.

Buttons

Buttons

All buttons are attached by hand using a cross stitch and on a stem. Cross stitching by hand makes the button attachment extremely strong, and our use of shank button stems enables the button to pass through the buttonhole with ease, leaving space between the button and buttonhole to prevent them from pressing against the front of the jacket. The final result is a more polished, clean look.

Buttonholes

Buttonholes

Furthermore, our Handmade make features entirely hand stitched buttonholes. This detail represents the pinnacle of our craft and is a luxury spec recognized and loved by the true connoisseur.

'D' Bar Tags

'D' Bar Tags

On all pockets of your suit, you will find ‘D’ bar tags. The loop adds extra reinforcement to the pocket to prevent tears, and the half-moon shape (the D-tag) is a luxury detail not to be missed.

Lining and Facing

Lining and Facing

Attaching the facing and lining a good distance from the seam of the jacket ensures that the contrasting lining at these points is never visible when the jacket is worn.

Collars

Collars

Our collars are entirely attached by hand in our Handmade line, optimizing the distribution of felt, resulting in a perfectly-fitting collar, every time.

Breast Pocket

Breast Pocket

Rounded breast pockets offer a more natural look and are better balanced against the other forms of the jacket and the body.

Shoulder Seam

Shoulder Seam

Another handcrafted detail that deeply impacts the jacket’s fit and smoothness is the hand-stitched lining attachment at the shoulder seam.
