True Savile Row bespoke suits are created only through collaboration; a fusion of the traditional skills of the master tailor, and the selections and tastes of the customer. The creation of a bespoke suit is essentially a personal experience for both the tailor and the customer. And it is the relationship between the two that determines the success of the outcome.
