It makes no sense to put any old coat over your splendid bespoke outfit. Make it the best bespoke coat it can be, with the help of Apsley's master tailors.
Good tailoring changes how you feel. A classic bespoke suit, made especially for you and your body, will always give you that fantastic fit and look that a high-street suit could never deliver. But what does 'bespoke' mean?
The word comes from the verb 'bespeak,' which means to speak for something, or to order something to be made. In fashion, this refers to the process of having a single garment or an entire outfit specially made for one person. Bespoke clothes are individually crafted from a pattern made from scratch for the unique customer. Unlike ready-to-wear outfits, bespoke clothing isn't available in standardised sizes. It is completely unique. And that's what makes it special.
After your first fitting, your suit will be crafted by Apsley's master tailors. Within ten days, you will be invited to try on your unfinished suit so we can see how it fits and make the necessary alterations. If we are happy, and if you are happy too, the suit will be completed and ready to be picked up within just two weeks. This isn't 'fast fashion,' but it is quality, it is care and it is craftsmanship, courtesy of Apsley.
Before taking any measurements, we will work with you to decide on the right fabric and cut for the suit you need, based on the occasion, your body and your personal preferences. We often recommend that clients start with a classic black, blue or grey suit. Get to know the fabrics and know what fits and feels right. Once that's established, we can start to explore and be more creative with our fabric and style choices.
Apsley's in-house tailors have decades of dedicated experience in making the process as smooth and as simple as possible. We take over 30 measurements during each fitting. We pride ourselves on paying the utmost attention to detail while completing the measuring process swiftly and without fuss.
