Made To Measure
When considering a made to measure garment you should always have in mind that the garments are tailored for you, by your taste, preference and your measurements. The benefits of made to measure exceeds the ready to wear garments in that way. Ready to wear garments might be less expensive, but for the slight cost increase you will have a garment that both feels and looks better. The endless different options and alterations you can make for your garment using MTM is probably the main reason many confuse or think that MTM is equal to a Bespoke garment. That´s not the case, but to be honest, it´s really close.
Whether you would like to make a shirt, suit, blazer or trouser you will be able to choose all the details on your new garment. Buttons, collars, lapels, cuffs, linings and many more options that makes the garment unique to your personal taste and preferences. All the details together with a perfect fit and you will have a garment to love for a long time.

For us, suits and shirts are not something we take for granted, this is our passion and therefore all our garments are Made To Measure and nothing that will fit as many as possible like ready to wear garments. When measuring, we take into account your shoulder slope, posture and about 40 other measures to ensure a perfect individual fit, whether in suit, shirt, jacket, pants or coat. All our garments are then cut and sewn from the ground up, according to your dimensions and choice of details at our tailors around Europe.
