Bespoke Custom Made Business Suits, Dress Shirts and Coats for Men and Women
The Classic Collections
Our Classic Collections provides great value and is our least expensive offering. These light-to-medium weight fabrics are made in Thailand and have a higher synthetic content, around 35%, to make them extremely wrinkle resistant, durable and easy to maintain. 'Wears like a Tank" is how some of our clients describe these cloths. These fabrics are a very cost effective option for custom shirts, custom suits, custom jackets, custom pants, coats and more.
The next level is our Premium Collections where the cloths reflect a lighter texture that makes them drape well. They have a higher wool component than Classic Collections fabrics. These fabrics are very popular due to their relative price point and frequent savings opportunities offered in our special offers section.
The Exclusive Collections
These fabrics are light to medium weight fabrics with 100% wool or minimal synthetic blends. They have a softer drape and fall, and are richer in look and feel. This is our most popular collection with an 80% repeat order frequency.
The Deluxe Collections
Deluxe Fabrics are imported from countries like Italy, France and the U.K. and are 100% pure wools and cashmeres, unless otherwise specified. They are highly desirable fabrics with an extremely rich feel, a high drape, and strong crease recovery. If you are looking for a luxurious suit at an affordable price, this is the collection for you. The suits in this collection provide the premium, luxury feel of a suit that often sells for more in a retail store.
The Heritage Gold Collections
The cloths in our Heritage Gold Collections are sourced from top-end suppliers and European Mills. They are among the most luxurious wool fabrics available; mostly super 130's and above with a smooth texture, a fantastic drape, and a super soft feel.

Step 3: Choose styles and fabrics for your custom clothing wardrobe that suit you best
There are tried and true principles in the world of custom tailoring that help guide clients to specify styles and that work best for their specific measurements:
What tall men and women should know:
- Lighter colors suits add width to a slim and tall suit.
- Two and three button suits work best for tall frames as long as the suit has relatively high-cut lapels/gorge
- Keep the amount of cuff you show to a minimum
- Ask for a proper amount of break in your trousers, so your long legs don't look too long
- Don't order suits with oversized, padded shoulders
- Don't wear extra-slim ties; ties with a bit extra width won't appear to elongate your torso
- Don't buy pointy dress shoes that accentuate the length of your feet. Buy a slightly rounded-toe shoe.
- When you are tall, your clothes should be designed to neutralize your height, to keep things in proportion. Accessories that cut across your body, such as belts, quarter folded pocket squares and horizontally striped ties, help accomplish this.
- Order plain, textured or plaid pattern fabrics for your shirts; avoid bold stripes
What short men and petite woman should know:
- A pant leg with very little break will help you look taller
- Show some cuffs to lengthen the look of your arms
- A Peak lapel on short men suits helps elongate your physique
- A lower button stance creates long lines which serves to stretch you out
- Belts make you look shorter; the more pared down you are, the taller you will appear. So ditch the belt; if your suit fits properly, your pants will stay in place. Or, use suspenders instead.
- Wear slender shoes
- Shorter men look good with bold patterns. Bold stripes, pinstripes, Glen Plaid and Prince of Wales are classic styles for shirts and suits.
- In order to give a broad look, go with rope shoulders and a high armhole
What large men and women should know:
- Wearing a pocket square brings the focus to your chest, not your midsection
- Keep your jacket buttoned unless you are sitting down
- Wear a simple, elegant plain shirt; avoid plaids and checks
- Wear flat front pants; they can be engineered to be comfortable , even without pleats
- Avoid super skinny ties and lapels; proportion with your torso is the key
- Don't wear a roomy suit; it doesn't make you look slimmer, it tends to make you look sloppy
- Avoid having to choose between belting your pants above or below your belly; wear suspenders and float your waist
- Don't wear strong patterns as they only emphasize your girth. Choose a simple dark suit, a light colored or pencil striped shirt, and a dark tie.
- Choose shoes that have a substantial sole, providing a solid anchor to support your weight
What men with an athletic built should know:
- A solid Athletic built doesn't mean your suit should be larger than your true size
- Two-button jackets sync up well with the V-shape of your torso
- Low collar shirts work well with a thicker neck
- Your jacket will likely be taken in at the sides
- You can wear narrow-cut trousers; it's your chest that needs room, not your ankles
- Don't wear peak lapels. Your chest and shoulders are broad enough - no need to accentuate them.
- Don't wear a pocket square. It's not necessary to call more attention to your already well-formed chest.
Where - and how - your upper half meets your lower half requires you to consider some key design considerations
- A short torso and long legs require you to avoid pleated, high-waist pants that exaggerate the shorter upper half of your body. Look for suits with flat front trousers that sit lower on your hips, the way jeans do.
- A long torso and short legs require you to avoid low rise pants. You want to build on pant style that sits a bit higher on the hips. Choose standard or high rise pants that look good with your specific build.
- Extra-wide hips should encourage you to keep your suit Jacket on which will call attention to your shoulders, not your broad waist/hips. Look for suit jackets with side vents that help break up your wide backside.
Dress and Business Shirts for Men and Women
