Our Bespoke and Made-to-Measure department, where we create Bespoke or Made-to-Measure shirts or personally tailored suits, is where menswear can be redesigned with guidance from our expert in-store consultants who specialise in these departments. All our Shirts from the Tailoring Department is made in the UK.
Bespoke and Made to Measure Shirt Service
Our service gives you the option of creating made to measure or fully
bespoke shirts - dependent on your requirements - made exclusively to your tastes.
Managed by our Director Andrew Hudson, the Bespoke and Made-to-Measure service is at the core of Harvie and Hudson. Having built our business on shirtmaking, it is something we are proud to continue to offer to our customers.
If you are interested in creating your own shirt, you may wonder what is the difference between a Bespoke or Made-to-Measure shirt. In brief, a Made-to-Measure shirt is made from a pre-designed fit of classic, slim and extra slim shapes. Shirts are then cut and sewn in the same workroom by the same people, in the same way, hence you will find that prices do not differ much for these services. The customer then has a choice of fabric, sleeve length, body length, collar style and cuff style to make it their own. Bespoke, however, has no such limitations. We really do start with a blank canvas, measure you in great detail, while discussing your style preferences and any detail of your shirt can be adapted to your whim. We then draught an individual paper pattern and use it to cut your sample shirt.
Personal Tailoring Service
Our personal tailoring service provides you with the option of creating a
personally tailored suit with all the quality of a bespoke suit, at an affordable price.
In addition to our shirtmaking service, we specialise in Personal Tailoring (also known widely as Made-to-Measure Suits) led by our Store manager Matthew Beadle. Our Personal Tailoring department has a wealth of experience in tailoring and fashion, we design the finest pieces in our London Store. A Made-to-Measure Suit involves the customer selecting the cloth, style, cut and fit to the customer requirements. We can also make Jackets, Trousers and Coats and Waistcoats
