Commissioning a bespoke suit is you chance to dictate every detail of the construction, design and fit of your garment.
Under the expert guidance of master tailor, Mathieu Castanier, you will be able to select the cut, fabrics, style, shape and materials to define your personal taste.
The result will be a one-of-a-kind garment, achieving a perfect fit to your body and personality.
A bespoke suit takes 28 hours of work to be made exclusively by hand in our atelier.
All of the 220 individual steps of crafting a bespoke suit, from cutting to the final ironing phases, are personally overseen by Mathieu Castanier to ensure that every detail is absolutely perfect.
Measuring & Design
At least 20 measuring points are taken to design a template from the ground up
unique to you.
No 2 people stand, walk or move exactly the same, a bespoke suit is cut to, not just fit your body, but follow your every movement.
As a bespoke customer, you get to choose between fabrics from the most
prestigious English and Italian heritage mills, including Holland & Sherry Savile
Row, Dormeuil, Fratelli Tallia di Delfino, Loro Piana, Fox Brothers and Vitale Barberis Canonico.
Next you get to decide the style and details of your suit, the style, width and shape of the lapel, button configurations, how the shoulder is structured with robbed sleeve head or a deconstructed Neapolitan style, pocket style and an almost endless range of possibilities.
Handcrafted in Portugal
It takes more than 28 hours, all done by hand, to craft a finished suit.
Most of those stitches, are meticulously hidden inside the garment, but important to achieve the perfect fit, freedom of movement and comfort.
The full floating canvas is completely hand-stitched to create a shape that follows your body as move.
Through excellent handwork, the garment is sculptured to hug your body and enhance your silhouette as you sit, stand and move. The entire process takes 5 to 6 weeks, including fittings to achieve a perfect fit that becomes like a second skin.
For those who prefer ordering their clothes without going through the bespoke
process, our ready-to-order lines offer the look and feel of our bespoke tailoring.
You get the unmistaken Castanier style, with details selected by the master tailor
himself at a lower cost than a bespoke suit.
