Top 10 Made to Measure Tailors in London

FEATURES | | Leave a Comment

While there are some great tailoring options available on the high street now, you simply can’t beat the fit and comfort of a made-to-measure suit.

Made-to-measure tailors use an existing pattern and adjust it to fit you perfectly. This results in a much better fit than off the rack garments, but is more affordable and quicker to produce than a completely bespoke suit.

Here’s our guide to London’s Top 10 Made to Measure Tailors.

1. Reiss

Reiss is already well-established as a retailer of off the peg suits, but also recently launched a personal tailoring service. You can make an appointment for a consultation at any of the 15 Reiss stores in the UK offering the service. As well as having your measurements taken, you’ll discuss your personal style and fabric choices. You can choose everything from the jacket style and fabric to the lining and buttons. You’ll return for a fitting appointment after your suit has been made, after which it will be adjusted for a perfect fit.

Price: from £645
Completion time: 6 – 8 weeks

10 Barrett St, Marylebone, London W1U 1BA

2. Massimo Dutti

The Massimo Dutti personal tailoring service offers a huge range of fabrics and options, with the opportunity to create your own shirt with matching fabric on the collars and cuffs.

4. Moss Bross

Another high street favourite, Moss Bross launched their “Tailor Me” service two years ago and it’s a great deal, at only £100 on top of the price of an off the peg suit. The options aren’t as extensive as some other services and the fitting and consultation session is rather short and efficient, but this is a plus for those who just want a well-fitting suit and aren’t bothered about wasting time on the details.

Price: £100 on top of normal suit price, starting at £159

Completion time: 30 days

88 Regent St, London W1B 5RS
