Lightly padded & expertly cut to follow your natural contours- so no more Star Trek shoulders


Tapered to enhance your sexy silhouette

straight – no twisting – and look smooth.


Narrow enough to accentuate your big man hands, but not so narrow as to get stuck on your Swiss watch. Always show about ½ inch of shirt cuff.

You’ve got to stop somewhere. Length tailored perfectly to give you just the slightest break


Tailored fit should offer you a consistent look and feel to the trouser leg, especially in the thigh
and calf area.


Slim is in. No bell bottoms please! Match with a streamlined shoe to complete the look


If you buy tailor made you can select the fabric, colour, lapel size & shape, number of buttons, pocket design & many other features to personalize your suit.

Top heavy? Tailor made means you can get different sized jackets & trousers to fit your upper & lower body perfectly.
