Want one button, or two? Tapered fit or comfortable? A handy ticket pocket, or not? When it comes to creating your ideal bespoke suit jacket, Apsley’s in-house tailors are here to help. We’ll explain the difference between notch lapels and peak lapels, slanting pockets and straight ones, to craft the perfect suit jacket for your needs.
When it comes to your bespoke suit trousers, you can choose from side buckles or belt loops, single or double pleats, back pockets or none. It’s the details that make all the difference. Apsley’s expert tailors can guide you through choosing between tapered or comfortable trousers and advise you on whether braces buttons would work. These are your trousers, your choices matter, and we are here to help.
What is bespoke?
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.

Notch lapels or peak lapels? Button hole or not? The choice is yours as the style is yours!
Buttons can be the perfect finishing touch on a jacket. Pick your colour and decide between matte and polished.
The vent is the slit you see at the back of a bespoke suit jacket. Choose between centre vents and side vents – whichever is right for you, your body, your comfort and your style.
Choose the number of buttons, the zip and the style of the front of your trousers for your comfort.
A turn-up might be right for the trousers you need, or you might prefer not to have one. It’s your choice for your style.
Belt loops or not? Want the option to wear braces? The waistband of your bespoke suit trousers is for your style and comfort.
