Tailors Leeds, so what are the best colours for your tailored suits?
Our expert advice leans towards investing in three fundamental shades: navy, charcoal, and a softer shade such as petrol blue. The world of business style has bid adieu to the days of pin stripes and checks, embracing the subtle elegance of herringbone patterns and interesting textures.
I have always been a firm believer in good honest advice told in plain English. Clients always have a choice. They can either buy into the heritage, history, craft and art of a real, time served bespoke tailor like myself. Or they can buy into the self promoting hype, the fancy location and bullshit talk of a salesman that is posing as a tailor. It’s really that simple. A real bespoke tailor is someone who has actually apprenticed under a master or in my case several masters. Unfortunately, most tailors Leeds are not even tailors.
A ‘normal’ suit that is made in any kind of modern factory set up will take merely minutes to fully make. Of course you couldn’t follow a suit from the cutting room to the final despatch in a few minutes, but the actual time, or time and motion time due to the nature of sub division on a large-scale means the actual make time for a suit is very low indeed. My late fathers factory made for numerous tailors Leeds, and as an example made a fully machined two piece suit around every 25 minutes. By comparison, all my genuine, handcrafted bespoke suits will take at least 80 full man hours of time to make. There is just no comparison between a genuine bespoke made suit in terms of quality and fit, the customer service you will receive and a factory made suit, however it may be dressed up, period.
