Our appointments are designed to be an enjoyable and exciting experience for every client – whether you’re there to get a new sports coat or your complete bespoke three-piece wedding suit – Edwin & Matthew ensure you have the finest and most personable Savile Row experience possible when creating your tailored clothes.

It is also worth mentioning that all appointments with Edwin & Matthew are none committal. Both at home in the UK & during overseas trips. So please don’t feel that you have to commit to order when booking an appointment. We understand that the World of Bespoke can be a little daunting to some, but here at Steed, Edwin & Matthew always do their best to put everyone at ease from the start and always enjoy chatting about the trade with whom will listen and look to build a healthy, friendly working relationship with each client. This is identified as an essential element in the Bespoke & Made-To-Measure process.

If you have any further questions in addition to the information in this guide, please feel free to contact us here and we’ll help in any way we can.

Design & Style Consultation

Have an informal, friendly chat with us about what you’re looking for, what styles you like and what occasion your potential commission is for. It can sometimes help to bring along images of styles or particular fabrics you like, although this is not vital. You can also take a look at our gallery here for inspiration, or our Instagram account which is full of ideas.
We can go over the various options and prices at this point with you if you wish. There is never any obligation to work with us if you don’t find what you’re looking for or feel our particular services don’t meet your needs. Regardless, we’re always happy to help anyone, reach the best option for them.
choosing materials at appointment

Material/Cloth Choice

We’ll offer you a vast array of the highest quality, UK & Italian-made fabrics, from which to select from. It’s important to get to take a close look and get a handle of the various fabrics in person as photo’s on the internet can be very deceiving concerning both colour shades and texture. Be in control of everything from the suit lining to the type/colour of buttons and buttonhole twist. Again if you have something particular in mind, it’s always a nice idea to send over photos or ideas to us before the appointment so we can quickly show you the best options for what you’re looking for. Just leave us a note in your appointment request or let us know over the phone, whatever suits you.
measurements at appointment

Measurements & Figuration

Edwin or Matthew will personally take over 30 different measurements and detailed figuration notes during your appointment to ensure your suit not only fits but emphasises your masculine physique better than any other suit you’ve worn. Once we have your measurements and figuration on file, you can order bespoke or Made-To-Measure from us in the future, without even coming into the showroom. Matthew is always happy to email style or cloth images or better still, post out fabric swatches from which you can peruse at your own leisure.

Tips for preparing for your appointment

What to wear

Due to the informal nature of how Edwin and Matthew approach appointments, you’re welcome to dress as you feel comfortable for your first appointment. However, if possible, it is always much easier to measure from a reasonably well fitting shirt. Wearing more formal attire, such as a shirt, jacket and trousers may help reduce the fitting appointments needed in the future as it’s much easier to judge things such as sleeve and trouser length.

What to bring

As previously mentioned, if you have an idea of the styles, colours and fabrics that interest you, please bring along some images or notes. It will help us ensure you find what you’re looking for. Don’t worry if you can’t find the right photo’s; we can go through all of the fabric bunches and show examples of styles to get us on the way to creating your perfect bespoke suit.

How much time is needed

All clients are offered hour long appointments, whether it be a first consultation or a fitting. The first meeting will usually take around 45-60 minutes and then future fittings will take around 20 minutes.
