Why MADE TO measure?


A made to measure suit has the power all on its own to imbue a sense of confidence and prominence in any man who wears it.

In terms of fashion, the definition of a "MTM Suit" is a suit that the tailor crafts out of someone’s vision. It is an original, one-of-a-kind garment made to the wearer’s preference, to a T.


That particular suit is made for and owned by exactly one man.

A RTW suit is bought off the rack, in a cut and style determined by the designer. The development of the RTW suit was pioneered in the 1950s, when manufacturers segmented the male form into different sizes for mass production. The vast majority of the world’s suits are now made this way.


A pre-defined fit: Despite these benefits and the advancement in quality, detail and construction, most men run into the inevitable issue of fit.

Even a rudimentary list of measurements such as chest, shoulder, sleeve length, waist (for both jacket and trousers) and trouser length, illustrates that few men are likely to possess the dimensions to fit a RTW suit size exactly.  So while a suit may fit well in some areas, it may be too long, short, loose or tight in others.
