The art of true bespoke tailoring takes years of training to learn and perfect, and countless hours to create. Our suits are all hand-cut and bench-made with full-floating chest canvas, hand padded lapels and hand stitched buttonholes. Every client has a paper pattern cut out to their exact specifications in order to meet their individual style. A Tiefenbrun suit is tailored to the highest standard possible- a timeless style deeply rooted in sartorial heritage.
The Tiefenbrun Process
A bespoke client, whether visiting us with an introduction or through mere curiosity, is introduced to our master tailor in his workshop. This is where foundations are laid for a relationship of trust between tailor and client that can last a lifetime.
The tailor's experience means that as well as taking up to 50 individual measurements, he'll evaluate the client's build, posture and shape to highlight their best features. His ability to see the end result means that when he cuts the cloth, adjustments will be made to ensure the garment fits perfectly.
The client has the freedom to design the suit or garment to meet their needs, tastes and lifestyle. From the choice of cloth and fit to the specifics, such as the shape of lapel, number of buttons and hidden pockets, creating a garment uniquely suited to their lifestyle. Later, the tailor outlines the client’s individual pattern, drawing from his experience and skill to shape and transform the fabric into a three dimensional work of art.
From Fitting to Finish
The tailor will then cut from this pattern and roughly stitch together the fabric panels for a first fitting, also known as the basted fitting, in order to see how the garment fits and hangs.
Adjustments are made, and at the second fitting the garment takes shape with the canvas built and the lapels padded.
Beautiful, hand-made details are added as the piece enters the finished stage – fine buttonholes, pick stitching and horn buttons. After a final pressing, it is ready for collection.
Requiring at least three fittings, the bespoke process is the epitome of sartorial perfection. Each stage will allow us to form and shape the garment, creating a high end, bespoke, one of a kind piece. Clients return again and again for the pleasure of wearing clothing that fits perfectly.
