The best part of wearing custom tailored suits and other custom clothing is the custom fit and the options. Custom clothing that is made to your unique body measurements and having the ability to choose the exact options you want is what we at Nicholas Joseph want for our customers when they purchase a custom suit, custom dress shirt, or other custom clothing.
1. THE FIT:
With over 50 years’ experience in tailoring custom men’s clothing, our expert custom tailors use single-needle stitching to construct your custom suit or other custom item. We guarantee that these custom tailored clothes will fit better than standard off the rack clothes. If you are not comfortable with the fit of your Nicholas Joseph custom clothing, we will do our best to ensure you walk satisfied.
INDIVIDUAL PATTERNS: Our custom suit, custom shirt, and custom pant tailors create an individual pattern for each customer’s custom clothing. That pattern is used each time a customer orders a custom suit or other custom garment, and we can adjust that pattern after each custom order to hone the fit until it is perfect.
Our custom tailors know that the best way to keep new customer for life is to only accept a single custom shirt or custom suit order at first. Then, they will create the first pattern, create the first custom shirt or custom suit from it, and send it to the customer. Once that customer receives the custom shirt or custom suit and wears it a few times, they will be able to provide invaluable feedback to the custom tailor about the fit. The custom tailor will then adjust the pattern for future custom suits and custom shirts, and once that pattern is perfect, the customer will be a customer for life.
HAND CUT FABRICS AND INDIVIDUAL MACHINE WORK: The details make the difference. Each custom clothing item is constructed by either one of our custom shirt, custom jacket, or custom pant tailors who hand cut the fabrics and use single-needle stitching as opposed to the far more common (and cheaper) “double needle” stitching or worse, fused lining of mass-produced shirts and suits. Our custom shirt collars and cuffs are made double thick, and our custom suits are constructed with extra fabric for easy alteration.
CHOOSE OUR WEBFIT® OR TAILOR MADE MEASURING METHODS. The choice is yours.
Our exclusive WebFit® method uses a few common measurements, sizes, and basic shape descriptions that you will already know to provide you with a truly custom fit for your custom suit or other custom clothing item. Our custom tailors use this information together with proven measuring formulas to provide you with a fit that is an 85-95% match of our Tailor Made clothing (see right).
Use this option if you have previously ordered Tailor Made or custom made clothing from Nicholas-Joseph.com or any other made-to-measure tailor and you have your measurments ready.
If you do not have your detailed measurements, you can also follow our Tailor Made measuring tips (during the custom item design process) to provide this information. You will need a soft measuring tape and another person to help you.
