Fabric selections

The Bespoke Suits tailors have wide portfolio of swatches representing materials produced by different mills. Although the wools that are used in suiting fabrics are sourced from around the world, the most coveted mills are based right here in the UK.

When you decide to have your suit custom made, there will be some questions that the tailor will ask you:

  • When the suit will be worn?
  • What is the occasion that you are attending?
  • How long will the suit be worn for?
  • Do you have a pattern or a texture of material in mind?
  • What weight of fabric is going to be most appropriate?

While it is true that most suits will be made of a blend of wool, there are other fabrics that could be considered such as linen, cotton and other fabrics in the luxury category like vicuña, mohair, silk, and cashmere. You should always trust yours instinct with our advice and choose a fabric that will be comfortable for you to wear.

A suit’s construction is largely what will determine the quality and the price of the garment. Possible constructions can be fused on canvas full or half inter-linings where the fabric is sewn or fused (glued). Glued suits will tend to be cheaper while the sewn or customised suit is usually more expensive.

A fine quality fabric will affect the cost of the finished garment and also feel better to wear and will stay in shape longer.

Caring for your suit

Keeping your suit in good condition is not a rocket science and after all, bespoke suit is meant to last. A suit that is looked after well will last you for a very long time. Here are some tips from us on keeping your suit in shape and in tip top condition for longer:

  • Brush lapels and pockets as well as the columns of the suit often, to remove and dust or dirt.
  • Blot stains immediately, never rub them.
  • Creased garments can be recovered in humidity. Hang a crumpled suit in the bathroom or vaporise it.
  • Wearing your suit day after day will damage the fibres. Let it rest between uses.
  • Maintain the shape of your suit by hanging your jacket on a hanger that has padding or wood to support the shoulders and always ensure that you hang suit trousers vertically.
  • Try not to use the pockets for bigger items, as pressure will be put on the seams.
  • Unbutton the jacket of your suit before sitting down to avoid strain on the buttonholes.
  • Use a breathable garment bag to store your suit.
  • Dry clean your suit at least once every season but note that dry cleaning too much can reduce the life of your suit.
