Due to the high prices often associated or assumed of custom made garments many people feel it is out of their reach or only reserved for people making a great deal of money. While this is true that many bespoke tailoring houses are relatively expensive for the average working person, the person who considers purchasing a bespoke item should think of it as an investment. While some patrons of bespoke tailoring can afford to get several suits made a year, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing; we certainly don’t feel that way. We believe that a bespoke garment is an investment that keeps on giving in terms of quality and durability for years to come and at any age. Not many people however, can boast a bespoke suit at the age of two like one of two little boys we were working with these past few weeks.
This boy's jacket is for a ring bearer. He was so excited to get a suit made for him and was very much into his appearance while he got his measurements taken. While you are probably not rushing to go get your little one a bespoke garment, it is a great thing to have as a keepsake for very special occasions such as a wedding, or as an heirloom item to pass on in the family. Children’s bodies of course are very different than adult ones so a bespoke item could fit a number of children as their muscles and bones haven’t set in yet. They haven’t developed features such as a lowered shoulder or a slouch which is present in the average adult and has be to compensated for in custom garments. This particular boy was well behaved and stood at attention when asked and really seemed to enjoy the whole process while occasionally strutting around.
The grey British Woolens suit is done in the super 120s as it is a specialty size as a whole set of patterns have to be made for a much smaller figure. It features a double breasted vest, two ticket pockets and a peak lapel. The cuffs are working surgeon cuffs with functioning buttons with the trousers are a flat front pant.
