A TRUE SARTORIAL PIECE OF ART.
Our fully hand stitched suits are what a true bespoke suit is meant to be. Offering the finest in construction, with a full floating canvas, basted fitting and detailed hand finishing, these are the hand stitched suits that every man wants.
After we cut the cloth we lightly stitch the jacket together into a shell of a suit, known as a “baste”. At the basted fitting you’ll have an in-depth discussion with one of our tailors about the fit of the suit and how it can be tweaked to perfect the fit. Each bespoke suit is then pulled apart and recut before being finally made up. At this stage your bespoke paper pattern is also updated so we can accurately recreate the fit for your future purchases. You’ll then come in for a final fitting where any minor alterations are turned around in just a few days for you.
FULL FLOATING CANVAS
Every bespoke suit needs support in the forepart (front panels) to hold the shape. At David E. White we use a linen and horsehair canvas to achieve this, unlike the cheaper plastic fusing used in most ready to wear and many tailored suits. Our fully hand stitched bespoke suits have a full length canvass and are sewn into the jacket allowing the internals of the jacket to move. The jacket will sit better on the body whilst feeling more comfortable and breathable. This is how a true bespoke suit is constructed.
The most skilled tailors are recruited into the fully hand stitched division to deliver the best in hand tailoring and bespoke suits. The internals are stitched by hand creating incredible shape and durability and all buttons holes (lapel and sleeve), top stitching and even the lining are sewn by hand for the ultimate in hand finishing.
This is the process and quality you should be demanding from a truly bespoke suit. Ignore the hoards of tailors claiming to offer “bespoke” when they don’t and experience the real thing from $2195.
