Tailoring

The Cotswold tailor attracts an array of both national and international clients. New clients are attracted by traditional cuts with contemporary twists, whilst existing clients come back time and time again for the affordable and competitive pricing, professional and friendly service and high quality luxury tailoring.

Based in Woodstock and Shipston On Stour, The Cotswold Tailor is easily commutable from London, and is attractive to those individuals looking for a ‘Savile Row’ type suit, but not wanting to pay Savile Row prices. The Cotswold tailor, tailor for many of the UK’s leading business men, politicians and celebrities, as well as for graduates, just starting out on their career paths, or  grooms looking for the special wedding suit for their big day. 

Process

At our first meeting and before taking over 30 of your unique body measurements, we offer advice on:

Style/Cut – a bespoke suit is exactly that, bespoke. We work with our clients to pick a cut and design that not only works with their body shape, but also works with their lifestyles. By finding out when, where and how often our clients will be wearing their bespoke garments, we are able to offer advice to ensure the tailored suit is fit for purpose.

Personalisation – We work with our clients to individually personalise their suits, allowing each suit to reflect an element of their wearers character. 

Construction – We offer 3 suit constructions. 

Made-To-Measure

Our made-to-measure service is a good way of bridging the gap between ready-to-wear and bespoke tailoring. For individuals looking at a cost effective, time efficient way of trying out tailoring, this is the perfect range for you.  As with our Bespoke and Bespoke + packages you still get to pick: fabrics, linings and the style of your suit.

Semi Bespoke

Our Semi bespoke suits offer an entry into the world of luxury bespoke tailoring. Your half hand-sewn, half floating canvas suit, will be cut to your own individual pattern, taken from other 30 of your unique body measurements. No two body shapes are the same, and nor should your suits be. Dropped shoulders, arched backs, muscular thighs, broad shoulders but slim waistlines are all common difficulties facing individuals when trying to buy suits, that look and feel great. Our bespoke suits are cut to compliment your body shape as well as naturally revealing something of the character of the owner.

Creating well fitting, appropriate clothing is an art. We don’t just make clothes that look great; we make clothes that are practical too. At your first fitting we will listen carefully to what it is you are really looking for, and craft your suit and design based on these requirements.  As such our suits fit both your body and your lifestyle. From the first fitting to the last our customers are involved in every step of the creative process, whilst working alongside your personal tailoring consultant to ensure the best possible end product.
