The Tailory: Our Process

Our process: How can you create your own custom suit with The Tailory New York?

Creating your own custom suit is exciting and we are very proud to offer a completely bespoke service that aims to make you feel unique, well dressed and confident.

So how exactly does this work? Let us run through our seamless process…

1. Book a consultation

The online appointment concierge is the easiest and fastest way to book an appointment for custom tailoring with our team. Simply select the date and time that works best for you. All measurement consultations are complimentary and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour. If you would like to book a same-day appointment or your desired appointment slot is not available, please contact the studio directly at 646.918.7777.

2. Fitting

During your fitting session, our consultants will take over 35 measurements to ensure the perfect fit. Constructing the fit of your garment is a dialogue between you and your fitter, which is why each of our consultants has years of custom tailoring experience and an in-depth knowledge of pattern making and clothing construction. A well-fitting custom garment is the perfect combination of proper fit and personal preference.

3. Design

Work with our team to design a garment that is uniquely yours. Each custom piece we make for our clients is individually designed with plenty of extra details. Our consultants will guide you through the design process and help you personalize each piece to ensure it meets your personal taste and lifestyle.

4. Spec

Every inch of your garment is made to high spec out and specific to you. After you have been measured and your garment has been designed, technical specifications and style details are sent to our team of manufacturers and production begins within minutes.

5. Creation

Every pattern is digitally cut for each and every client – there is no predetermined template. Your pattern is unique. This simply means you are able to completely customize your fit, your style and your entire design.

6. Feeling

From the style, to the way it drapes on your body, nothing will feel better than this custom garment. We have to warn you… once you go with custom tailoring, you will never shop off the rack again.

7. Pickup

With 24/7 production capability, we are able to deliver your custom items in as little as 2 and a half weeks. Once the garment arrives, you will try it on once more to make sure the fit is right and the finish is as you like it. We do not leave it with you until it is perfect. Any further alterations are done in midtown Manhattan to ensure that the turnaround is quicker and your custom piece is back to you in prompt time.

And it’s as easy as that. We work hard to provide a process that is efficient and bespoke so that you are fully satisfied with the newest addition to your wardrobe. Give us a try today and see how an expertly tailored suit feels.

Suits For Spring

Suits For Spring 

 

Now that the temperatures are beginning to rise and we are able to peel off a few layers, we can come out of our winter style hibernation and get back to dressing with a little more flair. Winter jackets, wet weather, and frigid temperatures can restrict your wardrobe choices. But spring has sprung and we’re ready to show off our duds. No more sacrificing fashion for warmth. 

Suits on the Spring Runways

Last fall we saw a surplus of designers showing suits on the runways for their Spring/Summer 2018 collections and the time is finally here to rock them!  

At shows like Teatum Jones and Acne, pastels resurfaced and stole the show. For others, like Tom Ford and Prabul Gurung, the bolder the color the better. What all designers had in common were monochromatic looks.

 Street-style Suits

Street-style stars are all aboard this monochromatic train too. At the London and Milan Fashion Weeks these past few weeks, the most fashionable women rocked same hue ensembles. You couldn’t attend a show without spotting at least 5 fashionistas in a pantsuit. Red was a hugely popular color, along with yellows and mustards.

 Printed Suits for Spring

An addition to pastels, spring always sees floral prints making a comeback. While wearing an all-over print may seem daunting for some, it is certainly an on-trend look that will get you noticed. Gucci showed some gorgeous prints for both men and women this season. 

If flowers and delicate patterns aren’t really your thing, animal and plaid are alternative prints to try out that will turn a few heads (in a good way!) The Hadid sisters, as usual, rock this trend flawlessly.

 How To Rock a Suit This Spring 

1) Opt for something with color. Ditch the darks until next winter. This season is all about beautiful pastels and bold brights. 

2) Go for a slouch fit. As much as we love a perfectly fitted suit, baggy silhouettes are all the rage right now. Widen those pant legs and lengthen that jacket. Did we mention how comfortable you’ll be? 

3) Add a casual element. Style your suit with a graphic tee or a turtleneck underneath. Also, swap out those stilettos for a flat or even a sneaker. 

4) Try out an all over print. Florals for spring are huge, of course. But if you’re feeling frisky, a leopard print suit will seriously make an impact.  

5) Belt it. With all these oversized suits, there is the possibility that you’ll feel like you lose your shape in all the excess fabric. Show off that waistline by adding a belt.  

6) Bring the hemline up. Whether you’re sporting trousers or a skirt on the bottom, don’t be afraid to raise the hem a bit. Show off those ankles and legs. They deserve to come out of hiding after a long winter. 

 So ladies, let’s suit up! The spring forecast is calling for suits of all kinds. Ditch the drab winter jacket and add a little color and structure to your wardrobe this season. 

 

At The Tailory we make custom suits for men and women in all kinds of styles, fits and colors. You’re unique. Your wardrobe should be too.
