How long does the fitting process take for a custom suit?
At YSG Tailors, we like to stay organised. When talking about the fitting process for a custom, made-to-measure suit, we want to make sure we get all the details right. For wedding suits, we prefer to have an initial consultation and interview 6-9 months before the big day. We can then stagger follow-up fittings, aiming to deliver your suit to you 3-4 weeks before the wedding. If you need a custom suit turned around in a shorter time frame, speak to our tailors today – while the process we’ve detailed is ideal, we can always work to tighter time frames.
What does the fitting process look like for a custom or made-to-measure suit?
You’ll come in to meet our tailors for an initial “meet and greet”, with three fittings following that. The meet and greet is all about getting to know what you want from a made-to-measure suit; the first fitting is putting that into action. The second fitting is booked based on the halfway point from your initial measure-up, and the third and final fitting will come 3-4 weeks before the event, be that your wedding day or another special occasion. This final fitting allows us to accommodate for any variations in size.
What fabrics can I choose from, and how many are there?
We have an extensive selection of fabrics from which you can choose to make your custom suit. You can choose from over 500 different fabric variations to create a suit in any colour or texture you want – classic black or blue suits, white suits, maroon or forest green suits, and much more. All the fabrics we use are high quality, ranging from super 100 to super 150.
Do I have to pay for extra trimmings and customisations on my tailored suit?
Our pricing is set by quality, allowing you to enjoy the full customisation process when designing and creating your made-to-measure suit. This includes complete control over the design and look of your custom suit – choosing a slim fit or regular fit, single or double breast, lapel style and size, number and style of buttons, lining materials, pocket styles, waistband types and more. Some additions to your suit, such as personalised lining, will incur an extra cost- the best thing to do is talk to one of our experienced tailors about how we can bring your creation to life.
Can I walk in, or do I need to make an appointment for a custom suit fitting?
YSG Tailors is an appointment-based business, so we can devote time to ensuring our customers are fitted up perfectly for their custom tailored suit. Walk-ins are welcome, but we can’t guarantee that one of our staff can help you on the day. Contact one of our tailors today to book an initial custom suit consultation.
Do you work after hours or on weekends?
Yes, we do. We have appointments available seven days a week for made-to-measure suit fittings, including during the day, after-hours appointments and also both Saturday and Sunday. Friday evening and weekend appointments are our most popular time slots, so if this is the best option for you, booking well in advance is a good idea.
Can we come in for a look?
Absolutely. We encourage anyone looking for a made-to-measure suit to come in and chat with one of our team members. Choosing a tailored suit for a wedding or special occasion can be a little overwhelming for the uninitiated. We set aside up to an hour to discuss all things tailored suits with you, and if you are happy with what you hear, we will look at getting you and any other members of your party booked in for a fitting and custom styling session.
