William Crabtree & Sons
Made to measure suits, London
William Crabtree & Sons is a tailoring house offering made to measure tailoring. We favour authentic British-made cloths, a simple, softly-structured silhouette and expertly crafted construction.
Crafting made to measure suits - the process
The made to measure process begins with a personal appointment with our tailor in our showroom in central London. During which we explore your requirements and the style of the garment you wish to commission.
At William Crabtree we first consider the cloth. By understanding your requirements for the suit or garment – where you will wear it and what it will be used for - we can select a cloth fit for purpose and reflective of your personal taste and style.
Unlike bespoke tailoring, where a new pattern is cut to reflect the customer’s unique measurements, the William Crabtree made to measure process takes our house blocks as a starting point. These patterns have been refined over many years and reflect our preference for simple, softly structured tailoring.
Our tailor will take your measurements and guide you through the process of selecting a suit or garment, its specific features and the desired cloth. A William Crabtree house pattern will then be modified to reflect your individual measurements and personal taste. The possibilities of fit, style, fabric, colour and detail are vast and we have many years of experience in guiding customers to a choice with which they are delighted.
Your commissioned item will be hand assembled and hand finished in the William Crabtree workrooms. Suits are fully canvassed.
