1. READY TO WEAR SUIT (RTW)

WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF AND WHAT SUIT OPTIONS DO YOU HAVE IN STORE?

Collection of suits made with 100% wool Super S110's fabrics from the Italian house Vitale Barberis Canonico; made with a pattern calibrated and perfected by our team of pattern makers. In this case, it would be the shoulders of each client that define the appropriate size for each one; That is, we would try on the client - once the suit model had been selected - different sizes and we would advise him on the one that fit him perfectly on the shoulders. Once the correct size was chosen, the garment would be adjusted to the client's body measurements so that it would fit perfectly.

These are garments with very high quality finishes, such as our notch and spearhead lapels, interwoven and non-fused interiors, operable buttonholes, among many other details that will not go unnoticed.

As an additional important detail to emphasize, the arrangements and repairs that are required are included in the price and we do them in our own workshop, we do not outsource .

We have suit models in both 2-piece format (€469.95) and 3-piece format ( €569.95).

You can see some of our suit models at the following link: Tailored Suits .
IMPORTANT: We have more models in store that are not available on the website.

HOW MUCH IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO GO TO OLD JEFFREY IF I CHOOSE THIS TYPE OF SUIT?

If this is the option selected, we would recommend coming to Old Jeffrey at least 2 weeks in advance since, once we have adjusted the garment in the store, it would take us approximately 1 week to work on it.

After the week of alterations, we would make an appointment to try on the suit. If any additional adjustment is required due to the appearance of small wrinkles and with the aim of "fine-tuning" the garment, we would again need an additional week to make the garment perfect.

Generally, for this type of suits, a single fitting is almost always enough, however, we always recommend coming to see us with that extra time in case any additional adjustment is needed.

 

2. MADE TO ORDER SUIT (MTO)

WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?

In this case, we want to introduce a new intermediate service between clothing and custom tailoring and we think it could be interesting.

That is, based on the pattern of our ready-made suits, we give the option of making a new suit from scratch by selecting the fabric, as well as focusing on some details of the garment's design. Service is an ideal service for:

  1. Clients for whom our tailoring pattern fits but who, however, are looking to choose the fabric with which they would like to make their new suit.
  2. Clients with a marked difference in size between jacket and pants. In this case, they could request that the jacket and pants be made independently and in the appropriate size.

The casuistry of said process would be as follows:

  1. Pattern testing and size detection . We would call you in our tailor shop to try on our pattern and, based on this, we would detect your size, separately, for both the jacket, pants and vest. Based on this size, we would define the adjustments to be made to the pattern and, based on these, we would make a new suit from scratch for you.
  2. Fabric selection . In this case, it would be the fabric that would determine the final RRP of the suit. In this case, we have a large number of fabric references in the store.

WHAT MADE TO ORDER SUIT OPTIONS DO YOU HAVE AND WHAT IS THE PRICE?

There are countless options! Regarding the price of the made-to-order suits, and as we have had the opportunity to comment in the previous point, it would be approximately €800 for the suit in 2-piece format and €1,050 for the suit in 3-piece format. .

HOW MUCH IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO GO TO OLD JEFFREY IF I CHOOSE THIS TYPE OF SUIT?

If this is the selected option, we would recommend coming to Old Jeffrey 2 months in advance since it would take 5 weeks to make the garment from scratch and, once made, we would meet you at Old Jeffrey to try it on. There is the possibility of shortening times depending on each case and under specific requests - in this case, this would be the opportunity to discuss it directly with our tailoring team.

In any case, we recommend, whenever possible, to organize the process at least 2 months in advance in order to ensure that you go more smoothly and, above all, enjoy the process.

Once the garment is made, we would use the first test to detect, if any, any wrinkles or, on the contrary, if the garment was perfect. If any adjustment is required due to the appearance of small wrinkles and with the aim of "fine-tuning" the garment, we would need a rigorous week to carry out the adjustments.

In general, a single "batch" of adjustments would almost always be enough, however, we always recommend coming to see us with that extra time in case any additional adjustments are needed.

3. MADE TO MEASURE SUIT (MTM)

We are moving forward with our Made to Measure custom tailoring service, where our tailors will take the measurements with the help of a suit called "witness" which we have digitized in our central computer and we will proceed to make the anatomical modifications, modifying that base pattern to that becomes the exclusive pattern of our client.

In this type of suits, you can customize absolutely everything, the shape and width of the lapels, the pattern of the pockets, the model of pants and vest, in addition to choosing all the trimmings, such as the lining, the felpic, the buttons. and the thread with which said buttons are sewn as well as embroidering the initials on the inside of the jacket.

WHAT MTM SUIT OPTIONS DO I HAVE AND WHAT IS THE PRICE?

There are countless options! Regarding the price of the made-to-measure suits, and as we have had the opportunity to comment in the previous point, it would be approximately €1,100 for the suit in 2-piece format and €1,450 for the suit in 3-piece format. .

4. BESPOKE SUIT

As a final step, we are proud to have our tailoring line Bespoke , also known as Medida Artesanal .

In this case, our tailors would take anatomical measurements directly from the client and design the suit with the purest details of traditional custom tailoring, that is, hand-made buttonholes and stitching, completely interlined interior without any type of glue or fusing, cupro or viscose linings, plain or printed, etc.

For this type of tailoring we require at least 3 months to have the finished garments since, once we take the measurements, we will manually design the client's pattern in our workshop and, subsequently, we will carry out the manual cutting of the garment.

After the cutting process, the assembly of the pieces will be carried out using basting and loose stitches and a first test that we call "positioning" will be carried out; At this point, we will have the skeleton of the garment - sleeveless in the case of the frock coat and unfinished lengths and widths in the case of the pants and vest.

Once the "settlement" test has been carried out, it is our turn: we will work in the workshop in order to correct details, add the sleeves and finish the construction of the garment.

Immediately afterwards, the client would be called for a second "fine-tuning" test and, if there were any small additional details to correct, a third definitive test would be done prior to delivering the perfect garment to the client.

WHAT BESPOKE SUIT OPTIONS DO I HAVE AND WHAT IS THE PRICE?

In this particular case we work under a prior budget that will be evaluated and notified to the client after their informative appointment in which they tell us what design and manufacturing requirements they are looking for. In any case, the price for this type of garment starts at €3,000 for the 2-piece format and €3,800 for the 3-piece format.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MADE TO MEASURE SERVICE AND BESPOKE ?

The difference between both methodologies lies, mainly, in the preparation process after taking the client's measurements; We explain it below.

  1. Preparation of the pattern after taking the client's measurements . In the case of Made to Measure tailoring, to obtain the client's pattern, we use witnesses with a base pattern from which we make corrections and obtain the client's final pattern. On the other hand, in the Bespoke tailoring service, taking measurements is direct and obtaining the pattern is manual and is carried out through calculations and generation of curvatures based on tailor's rules.

  2. Cutting of the fabric . For the Made to Measure tailoring case, the pattern obtained for each client is digitized and the scrap of fabric chosen to make the garment is cut very precisely by a cutting machine. On the contrary, in the Bespoke service, our tailor will cut the garment manually with special tailor's scissors for this purpose.

  3. Assembly of the garment . In the case of Made To Measure tailoring, our sewing team is made up of 10 people who will carry out the final preparation of the garment. For this case, each member of the team will specialize in a part of the garment (sleeves, front, etc.) and, ultimately, the garment is assembled together. In this process, the sewing will be carried out in a mixed way, that is, long stitches with a sewing machine and details finished by hand. On the other hand, in the case of artisanal tailoring (Bespoke), the complete tailoring will be carried out manually by our specialized tailor.
