HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR A BESPOKE SUIT TO BE MADE?
It takes on average 8-10 weeks for a bespoke suit to be made.
CAN YOU SPEED UP THE PROCESS IF I NEED MY GARMENT URGENTLY?
We have been known to turn around a garment in a short space of time but we must charge the client accordingly.
HOW MANY FITTINGS DOES IT TAKE TO COMPLETE THE SUIT?
To ensure the perfect fit we require a average of 3-4 fittings for all of our garments
HOW MANY MEASUREMENTS DO YOU TAKE?
On average we take 13 for jackets, 8 for waistcoats, 10 for trousers & sometimes more depending on the complexity of design.
IS ALL YOUR BESPOKE IRISH MADE?
Yes, the entire process takes place at our premises on Strand Street Great. No part of the process is outsourced to 3rd parties.
DO YOU DO BESPOKE GARMENTS FOR LADIES?
We can create all types of garments for our lady patrons.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BESPOKE & MADE TO MEASURE?
Bespoke & Made To Measure are comparable. But the most distinctive characteristic in bespoke is having 3 or more individual fittings. Whereas with Made To Measure, your measurements are taking on the premises, then sent to a factory & your garment arrives 6-8 weeks later as a finished piece.
DO YOU CATER TO ANY SIZE?
Of Course! That’s the beauty of bespoke. All of our garments are made to your precise measurements & are not based off block sizes.
CAN I SEND MY MEASUREMENTS TO YOU?
Unfortunately not. As we are a bespoke house we have to measure all of our clients & require 3-4 mid fittings from inception to finished piece.
IF I PUT ON WEIGHT CAN YOU LET OUT MY BESPOKE ATTIRE?
Our tailors always leave a generous inlay in each garment so they can be let out in later years. This is offer to all bespoke clients of Paul Henry Tailoring free of charge as part of our aftercare service.
