BESPOKE vs. MADE TO MEASURE

- Bespoke Tailoring Is The Rolls Royce Of Suit Making -

Traditional Construction By The World's Best Master Craftsmen

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE

 
(BOBBY MACC BESPOKE) (TYPICAL CLOTHIERS)
Bespoke vs. Made to Measure

Our custom suits are made from an original pattern with every client. We also create a basted-together suit from your initial measurements for the purpose of trying-on and optimizing the fit. This traditional fitting method is known as the basted process which allow us the freedom to make any fit adjustments that may not be possible once a suit has been finished. The making of a true bespoke suit is an intricate, time-intensive process and prices can easily exceed $10,000 for the most luxurious fabrics. Only 37% of all custom suits in the US are truly custom made.

Made-To-Measure Suits are made from a existing block pattern vs. an original pattern. These semi-custom programs were created as a mainstream alternative to truly custom made attire. Typically, a Made-To-Measure Suit will be more expensive than an "Off Rack Suit" but less expensive than a Bespoke Suit. This hybrid suit making process combines the mass production model with some of the personalization options you would find in the bespoke process. Fabrics and style options are provided but with limited depth. Also, unlike the bespoke process a basted fitting is not provided. Hence, all Made-To-Measure fit adjustments are made to finished suits vs. a skeleton baste suit.

The Construction Difference

We begin our custom suit construction with the traditional method of using a floating canvas. This level of craftsmanship ensures an elegant drape, silhouette form and perfect roll on the lapels. An entirely handcrafted custom suit typically requires 40 to 50 hours of labor to complete.

The majority of suit manufacturers including designer labels use fused construction vs. canvas construction to reduce production costs. This is the least expensive suit making method by which the suit's fabric is glued to a fusibile interling vs. sewn. The problem with fused suits is glue degrades over time which creates an effect known as bubbling. This is likely to happen when the suiting fabric becomes detached from the fused interlining. This event causes the fabric to ripple along the chest and lapel area. Unfortunately there is no way to correct this issue once it has occurred.

The Fabric Difference

We hand-select our fabrics from the most luxurious fabric purveyors in the world. Unlike many of our competitors who carry fabrics from 20-30 mills, we exclusively carry from a select few mills. This purposeful exclusivity fosters deep and lasting relationships allowing us to craft our bespoke suits with ultra-premium fabrics.

Knock-off fabrics are an unfortunate reality. Certain shops imitate respected mills by producing lower quality fabrics. Many US customers are not aware of this practice.

The Tailor Shop Difference

All of our tailoring work is done by master craftsmen. We are actively engaged with our tailors on a daily basis.

Most Custom Clothiers source to tailors that in turn source to third-party manufacturers to meet mass demand of the Made-to-Measure market.

Quality Assurance

Our daily interaction with our tailors ensures consistency and reliability in the careful creation of our bespoke suits.

It is difficult to manage quality control via third party outsourcing. As a result more mistakes and delivery delays are likely.

Client Services

Bobby Macc Bespoke maintains an exclusive and limited clientele to ensure we provide world-class service to each of our clients. Creating a bespoke wardrobe requires, and deserves, nothing less.

Today, the majority of custom clothing resellers (especially online)rely on a volume driven model. This is more likely to churn customers and experience a high turnover rate due to inferior quality and service.
