I have decided to commission my first ever sports jacket from a local tailor, and was looking for some advice as to what I should expect.
The jacket is costing me a total of £450 which includes the following as requested:
- Harrisons of Edinburgh - Grey Flannel 250g
- Real Horn buttons
- Half Canvassed
- Stitch detail around lapel, front of jacket and pockets
- Working Cuffs
I went in two weeks ago and was fully measured, discussed in length what I required, detail etc - they have told me a bespoke pattern will be made for me, which I will then return to for a fitting, adjustments made etc, then a second fitting and then a final one with the jacket fully made up and then any minor adjustments.
In total I was told it will take around 8-10 weeks from start to finish.
I guess my question is am I getting a good deal, and what if anything should I be looking out for to ensure I am getting a proper service?
