MADE-TO-MEASURE & SEMI-BESPOKE
We are Ottawa's Tailor Shop. We turn body measurements into perfectly fitting garments that feel like a second skin - understanding your needs, your style, and fit is paramount to this process. We work with the finest quality Italian, British & Australian fabrics, including Vitale Barberis Canonico, Stylbiella, and Holland & Sherry. No glue or synthetic is used in our construction enabling us to produce an exceptional hand finished suit to be worn for years to come. Our goal is to create the perfect balance between comfort and style by combining traditional tailoring techniques with a modern approach. All of our garments are hand tailored in-house. Step into our world and experience something that is truly yours.
Meet & Measure Up
This isn’t your typical suit buying experience. We’re going to help you find the right fabric, details, fit for your body type and more importantly, your personality. All without the high-pressure sales experience that’s far too common in our industry. It all starts by booking an appointment. When you come by, we'll start off by getting to know you, and what you are looking for. Feel free to grab a complimentary dram of whisky, an espresso, or a bubbly water. Relax, and listen to the tunes. If you have inspiration photos from Pinterest or Instagram, this is a great time to show them to us. We'll go step-by-step through the process of designing your new garment, and then bust out the tapes to measure you for your perfect fit.
First & Second Fitting
Alright, let's get it fired up. This is the longest you'll go without hearing from us, as we're busy bringing your vision to life! As soon as we have the garment ready to try on, you'll receive your preference of a call or an email from us. The first and second fitting stages allow us to achieve a perfect fit. During these stages the suits are in a "skeleton baste", where they are partially complete. If there are any small adjustments to be made, we'll take note with chalk and/or pins to ensure that you get a perfect fit. Remember, you're a vital part of the process; your garment is as unique as you are! If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to make them known to us!
Final Fitting & Pickup
Once the suit is ready, we arrange for a final fitting to make sure you're happy with the fit before you take your finished suit away. This handover can be done in-store in or at a place and time that suits your schedule. Your measurements will remain on file, making your next order a breeze! Now, all that remains is to throw on your new piece, and get ready to walk out the door feeling happy, comfortable, and confident!
