How it Works

The Custom Tailoring Process

Step 1. Consultation:

The journey of custom tailoring begins with a consultation between the client and the tailor. This meeting serves as an opportunity for the tailor to understand the client’s preferences, lifestyle, and the specific occasion for which the garment is intended. Discussions may include fabric choices, style preferences, and any unique design elements the client desires.

Step 2. Measurements:

Accurate measurements form the foundation of custom tailoring. Tailors take precise measurements of the client’s body, considering nuances such as posture and body proportions. These measurements are the blueprint for creating a garment that fits the client like a second skin. This is also known as “made to measure”.

Step 3. Fabric Selection:

The choice of fabric is a crucial aspect of the custom tailoring process. Clients can select from a vast array of fabrics, ranging from luxurious wools and silks to more casual cottons and linens. The tailor guides the client in choosing a fabric that aligns with their preferences, climate considerations, and the intended use of the garment. At Parmar Tailors we house 15 different fabric brands  from Italy and the United Kingdom. To suit anyone’s taste and style.

Step 4. Design and Styling:

Custom tailoring allows for a high level of personalization in terms of design and styling. Clients can choose the style of collars, cuffs, lapels, and other details. Tailors, often possessing a keen eye for aesthetics, may also provide guidance on design elements that complement the client’s physique and overall look.

Step 5. Fittings:

It takes 2 – 3 weeks to complete a suit depending how quick the client to visit for measurements, fittings and approvals. Unlike ready-to-wear garments, custom-tailored pieces undergo multiple fittings. This iterative process ensures that the garment takes shape according to the client’s measurements and preferences. Fittings provide an opportunity for adjustments and fine-tuning to achieve the perfect fit and drape.

Step 6. Craftsmanship:

The heart of custom tailoring lies in the craftsmanship. Skilled tailors bring years of experience and expertise to the cutting table and sewing machine. Each garment is meticulously crafted, with attention to detail and precision in every stitch. The result is a piece of clothing that not only fits impeccably but also reflects the artistry of its creator.
