The forward fitting will last up to one hour. For new customers, the meeting will focus on assessing the fit of the basted jacket prepared by the tailor and his workshop. The featured tailor will make any necessary adjustments to your jacket, pants or other garment being fitted.
The basted jacket will consist of a partially finished jacket body and one attached sleeve. Pants will be nearly finished except for length and buttons. Optionally, we may take additional photos or video of you during the fitting as a reference for the tailor.
Similar to the measurements meeting, we recommend you wear your best fitting shirt, ideally MTM or bespoke, that represents the type of shirt you’ll wear with the jacket you’ve ordered. This is critical in gauging your sleeve length.
More generally, we will be asking for your preferences on key items such as button stance/height, jacket length, sleeve length and gorge height. It is essential that you are fully comfortable with your choices and that you fully approve the changes made at the fitting. These choices are often not reversible (e.g. button stance/height or sleeve length) once made.
If you do change your mind on a potentially reversible feature (e.g. jacket length) after the fitting, there may be an additional surcharge to accommodate your change request. This is most relevant to Simply Bespoke orders.
Finally, we can also receive cloth for any new orders you have placed as well as return a bespoke garment you have designated for duplication.
