Our expert tailors come to your home or office, or you can visit our showroom for a no-obligation, free consultation. We spend time learning about you and your unique style, then offer our professional advice to best achieve your clothing requirements.
We then walk you through our fabric range, selecting the perfect colour, print, and style elements for your garment. Detailed measurements are then taken, finishing with a discussion regarding design, cut and finishing touches perfect for your build and style.
Once your bespoke design has been approved, our first-class British tailors assemble your garment using timeless techniques and the highest quality canvassing, buttons and linings available from the best fabric producers in the world.
When your garment is ready for first fitting, we meet again to fit the garment on your body, taking exceptional care to amend even the smallest issue to ensure the perfect fit and your complete satisfaction with the final product.
Many different factors can affect how a dress shirt looks on you, and a tailored shirt will help you avoid the subtle but real pitfalls an off-the-rack shirt can create with each body type. You shouldn’t wear an off-the-rack dress shirt with a bespoke suit, and even if your shirt isn’t evidently tight or obviously baggy, that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect fit or even feels as nice as you deserve.
When you go through the Ascot Tailors process of getting a garment tailored to fit your form, you spend time in fittings to get the look and feel just right. You invest all that time because you want to look your best and it doesn’t make sense to let your suit down with an average shirt. The only way to complete the ensemble is with a tailored shirt. Ascot the Tailors offers both bespoke suits and tailored shirts to help you get the perfect look from top to bottom.
Our tailored shirts will look better in any situation than something off the peg, but they will especially make a difference if you are already wearing one of our bespoke suits, completing your personalised look.
Fit is determined by how you like to wear your shirt – from relaxed to very fitted. Twenty seven different measurements are taken to make a specific pattern for you which is kept on file to make reorder simple.
Ascot Tailors have hundreds of fabrics and finishing options to choose from, including Loro Piana, Holland and Sherry Dormeuil, Zegna, and Harrisons.

Italiano mad bespoke customies your clothes and wardrobe
Start by consulting our staff about your wardrobe. With years of experience between them, they will be able to advise on your requirements and on exactly what’s necessary to build the perfect, flexible, working wardrobe. Once you have decided on the garments you wish to have made, our cutters will help you choose the best fabric. With 4,000 samples of cloth to choose from, our cutters have a gift of knowing what fabric will work best for any style, which is partly what makes their role in the process so pivotal.
Once the fabric is chosen and a style decided upon, the cutter takes your measurements from which he or she cuts your own personal paper pattern.
The paper pattern is laid out on the cloth and chalked around. The cloth is then cut by hand, leaving extra cloth at certain seams or ‘inlays’. This allows for the suit to be altered at a later date if your weight changes. Material trimmings, like natural wool, canvas and linen, are added to the garment’s construction to give the suit its classic Italiano Made .
The garment is then assigned to a highly skilled tailor. That same tailor will be dedicated to your needs so long as you remain a customer of Italiano Made Tailors . The tailor will have a close relationship with you to ensure there is a continuity of service and consistency of quality.
We feel it’s important that you trust your tailor to deliver your preferred cut and style.
The tailor canvasses the suit by hand ready for the first fitting. Our cutter fits the suit and at this point starts to alter the suit to fit and enhance your posture
After the first fitting, the garment is marked up with all readjustments and then completely taken apart and re-cut. The paper pattern is adjusted at the same time so it can be used again for all future orders. The garment is then given back to the tailor to be prepared for the next fitting
At the second fitting, alterations and amendments are refined, giving the suit its fit and comfort. The suit is checked over for break over shoe, seat of trouser and drape.
After the final alterations, a tailor hand-makes the buttonholes and hand finishes the suit inside and out. Only the best trimmings and pure natural fibres, such as hand silks, are used, giving the suit its longevity and lasting finish.
The Italiano Made . suit is then ready for the final fitting. You’ll be given advice on how best to clean, press and care for the suit to maintain its shape. Each suit is numbered and logged so we are easily able to source any necessary materials to repair even minor damage that might occur. This logging and numbering process also means that subsequent orders will require fewer fittings and so the bespoke process for your second suit will be much quicke

One of the aspects our clients love the most about the bespoke experience is the sheer breadth of options that are available for a suit. We've previously explored how it is these small details, such as the lining, that can really make your suit pop. But what about the trousers? Often overlooked, a well-fitted pair of trousers really brings together the entire look. Read on to find out about a few of the different choices available for your bespoke trousers...
The fit of the trousers is something that tends to move in line with fashion trends (think the extreme wide legs of the 70s) but there are a couple of options that are timeless. You could go for more of a neutral silhouette in a classic fit if you're looking for something to stand the test of time. In recent years, there has been a trend for a more tapered fit, which looks great in a slightly shorter fit in lighter weight cloths. Alternatively, a wider leg has been seen making a resurgence on the catwalks, which can look fantastic for a pair of standalone trousers or as part of a tweed three-piece.
As with the fit of the trousers, the length is also subject to different fashion trends. For a timeless style, we'd recommend the classic fit. This means that the end of the trousers hit the top of your shoe, causing a single 'break' in the fabric. A break is where the fabric folds slightly inwards as it hits the shoe. If the trousers have more than a single break, they can look rumpled and untidy. Recent years have seen a trend for a shorter fit on trousers, with the option to flash a bit of ankle or some snazzy socks. You might also prefer to wear your trousers slightly longer. The typed of shoe and the heel height you wear with the trousers will also affect the length, so we tend to ask people to come in for fittings wearing the shoes they're most likely to wear with the suit.
BELT LOOPS, SIDE ADJUSTERS OR BRACES?
On of the absolute musts for a bespoke suit is that you feel confident and assured when you put it on. You don't want to feel uncomfortable or be worried that your trousers are at risk of falling down! To combat this problem, there are a few options. The first are belt loops, which are often seen on more casual trousers, such as jeans or chinos. While this can help you feel secure, a belt can often look bulky in contrast to the fit of the suit and can cut the silhouette of the suit in. They also look out of place if you forget to wear a belt. At King & Allen, we tend to recommend the second option, side adjusters. These come in two different styles: buckles and buttons. The buckles work by a sliding strap that tightens and loosens the waistband. Buttons work by fastening a tab to one of three different buttons. Buckles tend to be more adjustable, so again we tend to recommend these. The other option is braces. They work by attaching to brace buttons which are placed on the inside of the waistband. They give you a lot of room on the waist measurement and tend to be the most forgiving in fluctuations to your waistline!
There are a few different options in terms of pockets on your trousers. You can choose to have no pockets at all, which leads to a more slick look but perhaps not as practical. You might choose side pockets on their own or also choose to have pockets at the back. We'd always recommend not keeping too many items in your pockets, as this can sometimes warp the fabric and ruin the sleek look of your suit. In terms of the style, you could choose straight pockets, slanted (above left) or cross pockets (above right), as well as other, more unique designs.
We offer three options for pleats (the fold of fabric just below the waistband). You can choose to have no pleats at all, which creates a seamless, flat look at the front of the trouser, which has a more modern appeal. You can also opt for a single or a double pleat. Pleats have a more classic, old-world look (think Cary Grant or Katherine Hepburn) and can add some texture and drape to the trousers. You can also choose between forward pleats (facing towards the inside leg), or reverse pleats (facing towards the pockets). As Chloe, our tailoring consultant at Surbiton and Liverpool Street says 'I'd recommend reverse pleats for women, as it gives more room over the pocket area.'

BESPOKE LEATHER JACKET
with Italiano made bespoke
you can chose your leather metrial and style and customies your leather jackets...
In addition to commissioning a bespoke leather garment for the exceptional quality and personalised fit, the bespoke process also allows you to choose every detail to create the exact piece that you want. The variety of leather garments on the high street is limited to what is in fashion, and often the leather may be of a poor quality and standard of make, with prices reflecting the designer name rather than the components used. Additionally, for many people finding the right size and fit in leather on the high street can be very difficult, and this is where the option of bespoke is appealing.

BESPOKE LEATHER BAGS
Personalisation options for custom-made bags offer infinite decoration options to make a bag unique. The fabric choice can reflect your brand from sustainable natural cottons in many different weights plus linings fit for purpose. The colour of the fabric can be perfected by dying it or printing it. Then the size of the bag can be anything from the tiniest of pouches to the largest bag to transport a table in or a multi-faceted bag for tools. Choice of closures include zips, poppers, draw cord, ties or elastic. Perhaps the bag needs to be waterproof or should have a metal badge? Padding or dividers can also be added. This handy guide will outline some of the personalisation option elements you can customise your bag with. Maybe there’s something not here that you want. Ask and we’ll find it for you. Anything is possible.
The quality of hand stitching is key to the finish of bespoke leather bags. A beautiful stitch is a real sign of genuine craftsmanship that you can't get using a machine. Hand stitching involves threading two needles on a waxed length of thread and then running the thread through the holes to secure the stitch. Italiano made uses traditional Saddle Stitch and Box Stitch techniques.
