Made to Measure Tailoring

How we operate

People can get confused as to what the made to measure service is.

The way we work is that we have an existing pattern for all the garments we offer. From here we get you to try them on allowing you to get a feel for the garment itself, while allowing us as the tailors to have a look and decide what needs changing. We will give our advice and listen to what you want in order to achieve the best possible result.

We don
t just provide the standard made to measure service i.e. a simple length adjustment. These existing patterns we work from can be altered to suit each person, whether it be more or less at the shoulders, chest, waist, thighs, the list goes on. We will simply do whatever is required for the best possible fit.

You will only have one appointment at the beginning. There is no need for a fitting during the making process therefore the next point of contact is when the garments are ready.

This is how we differ from bespoke tailoring - with bespoke, a pattern has to be made up for you, which then requires you to have fittings during the making process. This in turn takes up more of your time and also means that you end up paying far beyond the cost of our made to measure tailoring service, for essentially a very similar garment.

After 22 years we have perfected the way we operate for the best possible result. We provide more than your standard made to measure service as we can offer changes in the fitting and details of all garments. This makes us fall somewhere in-between made to measure and bespoke tailoring, while still managing to offer our service at the same price as a made to measure.

Getting measured

We primarily work from our high street store in Lairg. This is where we would encourage you to come to get measured for your garments.

To avoid disappointment, please make an appointment beforehand.

There is however an alternative option if you are unable to visit our shop - you can send us garments that fit you fairly well at present (telling us what minor adjustments are required) and we can work from them.

You can choose your tweed by going to our tweed examples page by clicking

The Garments

All our garments are hand tailored to the highest standards.

All prices are inclusive of tweed. If you already have your own tweed or are from an estate please click
HERE for the appropriate prices.
Of course we can also make all these garments in other materials such as tartan, wools, moleskin and corduroy (prices will differ slightly).

Shown below are examples of the garments we provide. These are
examples and as such there are several different styles, trim and detail options available for each garment. We will also do our best to cater for the more unique requests.
