What does bespoke mean?
Be•spoke adjective: (of goods, especially clothing) made to order. Unlike made-to-measure which uses a pre-existing pattern to outfit clients, bespoke garments are made entirely from scratch to your individual measurements and body specifications.
Should I Make An Appointment?
Yes! We encourage our clients to schedule an appointment with a representative in your city or at our head office in Irvine, CA. This allows each client to receive the attention they deserve. We’re happy to accommodate same-day fittings whenever space is available, but request that you call us for an immediate booking. Locate a traveling tailor today: Tour Schedule
How long will an appointment last?
Generally speaking, first-time client fittings will last about an hour to select fabrics, personalize designs and creating a fit profile. Repeat clients can typically select their garments and cater to any adjustments due to body weight fluctuations in about 30 minutes.
How do I know my new clothes will fit?
We stand behind every garment we produce and work alongside our clients until expectations are met. Since the custom garments are made entirely from scratch specifically for each customer, we cannot offer refunds. However, if expectations are not met we will either alter the garment or completely remake it free of charge. Our longstanding reputation for quality and customer service has kept us in business for nearly 30 years.
How should I care for my new clothes?
Suits: After each wear, it’s recommended to hang your suit outside the closet overnight so that moisture can escape the fabric. Hang your trousers long-ways from the bottom hem with a pant hanger so as to naturally pull out wrinkles and reducing the need for pressing. Suits (and Blazers, Sport Coats, Overcoats, for that matter) should only be dry cleaned if they become physically dirty. While dry-cleaning itself (if done properly) won’t damage a garment, far too many cleaners use harmful chemicals to “clean” garments, which we don’t recommend utilizing. If your garment simply needs a refresh, it’s advised to use an iron delicately throughout the garment or have it hand-pressed by a reputable cleaner.
Shirts: Shirts are recommended to be laundered every couple of wears, generally with warm water and then hand-pressed with a warm iron. Many cleaners outsource their laundering services – a practice we don’t believe in. Find a cleaner that launders their shirts in-house to prevent any damage that may be associated from outsourced commercial laundries. Further, we generally advise to stay away from starching shirts as that can cause cotton fibers to become frail and thus will wear out faster. Please bear in mind that some natural shrinkage will occur in new shirts, most typically around the collar/cuff. We have this shrinkage built into our garments and request that our clients provide a fit confirmation only after shirts have been laundered a few times.

What should I wear to my first appointment?
It’s advised to wear your best fitting suit, shirt and pair of dress shoes to allow for precise measurements. Measuring clients in jeans and casual shirts is not recommended as these garments typically allow for a much more relaxed fit.
