In collaborations with local crafts people, offers you a curated collection of hand made clothing
All bespoke trousers are made in Göteborg by hand by William.
Your first appointment is an opportunity for us to meet as tailor and client in order to create a wholly unique garment that fits perfectly. We will discuss styling and make your choice from a selection of cloth from the finest mills and suppliers.
Following this I note down your individual details and measurements to create a personalised pattern. At the end of the first meeting, we will also agree a price and timescale to create your perfect garment.
The selected cloth will be cut and constructed into a hand sewn baste and be prepared for the first fitting.
At the first fitting we will make adjustments for the perfect fit. From this, the garment will be de-constructed and recut for the second fitting.
A second fitting will take place. This involves an almost finished garment. Checks will be made to ensure a perfect fit and alterations will be made, if necessary.
The fitting and construction process may take anywhere from 6-8 weeks depending on the client’s needs and the number of fittings required by the individual to suit his or her schedule. With up to 40 hours of hand work in each garment, you will be assured of an article of clothing that is wholly unique, perfectly fitting and durable.
Made to Measure
Bespoke trousers may not be everybody's favourite cup of tea! So a made-to-measure (MTM) suit can be a very satisfying alternative.
At the start of the process I will record your detailed measurements in order to adress your needs and flatter your silhouette. You have the opportunity to customise details and cloth in order to represent your personal taste and cater to your needs.
The resulting garment is hand assembled and finished at our factory to exacting standards. Although not as intensively crafted as a bespoke garment, our made-to-measure programme offers you a vast scope of choice in terms of fit and style, without compromising quality and fit.
The MTM service offers you the personalisation of style, cloth, detailing and fit without having to compromise.
