Off The Cuff Black Tie
A formal function calls for rather more effort and the ultimate black tie outfit. This brings a world of options into play. From the fundamental choices between either midnight blue dinner suits, or black cloth and a double or single breasted jacket. To more subtle ones involving jetted or flapped pockets, satin or grosgrain facing, or peak lapels or shawl collar.
Here at Merrion Bespoke, our bespoke suits are both stylish and timeless. Choose from our collection of bespoke suits to put your best foot forward and dress with intent. We provide numerous methods to capture your measurements in order to create your bespoke suits. Select the option that matches your level of convenience, and your garments will be ready in 6-8 weeks.

Choose either my entry level Made To Measure. Mid range Semi Bespoke. Or my top end traditional Full Bespoke. Rest assured that all my suits are genuinely handmade to your individual measure. I do not outsource any part of your order to a third party.
Every item is hand- cut and hand-made by a master craftsman at our Castleford premises to the client’s individual pattern. And all my bespoke suits are handmade to your precise requirements to create a garment that is uniquely tailored to you.
Either way there’s nothing better to wear with black tie than a white piqué-fronted evening shirt with a turn-down collar, and a proper black bow-tie in the same kind of silk as the facing on the lapels. Finish the outfit with a pair of long black socks in fine wool or cotton, a snowy white linen pocket square and a pair of highly polished black whole-cut shoes, ideally with silk shoelaces.
All of these things are correct, what separates the dinner suit is an appetite for timeless style. Single or double-breasted jacket, black with jetted pockets, no vents and grosgrain facing on the lapels. Or a wish for a more contemporary look, which would take the form of a lean and rather short midnight blue jacket with a shawl collar, and slim flat-fronted trousers.

High end tailoring is the influence behind all modern suiting, including made to measure, and bespoke is THE benchmark.
The term bespoke was derived long before the mass production of ready made tailoring, and historically all cloth lengths were held in stock by a tailor. Subsequently, when a cloth had been chosen by a client, it was said to have “been spoken for”.
A collaboration now begins between you and your tailor to commission something truly special.
Bespoke tailoring built on a very special relationship is a process between the client, cutter and the tailors who assemble the garment.
The focus of a bespoke commission is to create a unique garment, entirely made to your needs and your requirements. Every item is hand-made by a master craftsman at our Castleford premises to the client’s individual pattern.
Our process has stood the test of time. And ensures that at the end of it you will have an exquisite hand-made bespoke garment that will last you a lifetime.
