The Bespoke Suit
The bespoke suit is one of the most important and fundamentally classic creations in men's tailoring. For many tailoring houses it is the work that defines them as a business.
Although the company’s origins are rooted in creating bespoke shirts, we have developed a reputation for elegant, timeless tailoring across all aspects of the modern gentleman’s wardrobe. From formal dinner wear to hunting breaches; from boardroom attire to the perfect wedding piece, we are known for our dedication to ‘bespoke’ rather than any one style.
At Crichton Bespoke we have perfected the art of cutting a bespoke suit. We insist on three fittings, the first of which determines the customers measurements and allows us to cut an individual card pattern. We would then consult with the customer on the cut and style to ensure a flattering outcome. They would choose their cloth from a library of cloth books, from only the finest mills, deciding on things such as weight, material, colour and purpose.
A few weeks later a base fitting allows us to check balance and drape before ‘ripping it down’ and re-cutting. The final fitting is about seeing a near complete suit on the person and making small adjustments to ensure the perfect fit. It is then skillfully pressed, named and dated and presented in our Crichton covers.
All of our pieces are cut and made by hand on site in our Chester workrooms.
