 1.the rise of the trousers will depend on the outseam and crotch measurements you supply 2. We will send the trousers back with your order which takes 3-4 weeks. However, trousers are easy to measure yourself. If you go to the site and send me a message I can send you the measuring instructions. 3. We send everything back via international courier with tracking. 4. Yes we can do side tabs
1. I have made a number of posts on the blog on how to ensure accurate measurements It's worth the time to thoroughly read all of them 2. The differences between the "almost bespoke" and the "rockstars & royalty" packages won't show up in pictures. It's a matter of the perceived quality of the materials used in construction. We import the canvas from England that's been specifically designed for today's more lightweight wools and made by a company that has been making suit...
One other method of getting a great fitting suit is to post your best fitting suit to our Shanghai office. While there is postage (one US based customer told me it cost around $60) you only have to do it once and then we have your measurements on file.   You can ask the tailors to simply replicate the size or, if necessary, you can tweak the measurements a little, Take half an inch of the sleeves or perhaps you have put on a little weight since you bought it and want the...
Any errors are the responsibility of Elite Suits already under our No Worries Guarantee. If the suit simply doesn't fit we will pay for alterations or have the suit remade. If the measurements supplied to us were wrong it doesn't matter as the guarantee still applies. You are right though. You're not going to get that first suit exactly right no matter where you buy it from. However, as I said above we don't have too many problems and catch the majority of major...
 Very true but a suit made from world class fabric and made by a skilled and experienced tailor can usually be altered to fit if necessary and it still remains a high quality suit. A cheap machine sewn factory made fused suit is always going to be a cheap suit no matter what you do to it
 We have a number of processes in place to ensure the best possible fit we can for our customers. We're pretty good at it too and actually have very few problems with customers coming back and saying their suit simply doesn't fit. It does happen sometimes. It's the nature of our industry which is why we offer a guarantee on our suits. However, as I've said before the emails I receive from customers saying how pleased they are with their new suit far outweigh the number...
Hi Sleeprequired and thanks for the feedback I suppose that as I'm in the industry I'll never understand people's trepidation in ordering a MTM suit online. I've said many times that the measurement process isn't rocket science. If you follow the instructions on the measurement form then you should be OK. To help you even more we have put a number of tips, including a number of videos showing how each measurement is supposed to be taken and how to get your measurements...
A couple of emails in my inbox this morning  Two more customers who took the time to let me know how pleased they are with their suits. I'm sure they have now joined the growing band of customers that now have Elite Suits as their Go To tailor.
One suit that is becoming more and more popular is the Huddersfield Cloth specials. These are basically end of roll specials that they are heavily discounting to clear and some of the prices on what is beautiful cloth are spectacular. We send the cloth to our specialist bespoke tailors who make the suit completely by hand. No machine sewing here, all 4,000+ stitches are done by hand like tailors have been doing for centuries.   Add the Milan Suit special and you have two...
Yes. This is something I strongly recommend. If you own good suits you need a steamer. Not only will it remove any wrinkles it will also kill the bacteria that cause odours. A quick wipe with a slightly damp cloth will remove any minor marks from your suit so you will have a wrinkle and odour free clean suit that you should only have dry cleaned twice a year. Unfortunately though when I went to use my steamer on this suit all the lights come on but nothing heated up. I can...
