Fantastic service, first time I have used an online tailor before. It was so simple just pick the materials, chose the style of suits which I would like and add my measurements. Two weeks later I received my suit I couldn't be more happy.
Excellent service, easy to use site. all orders had the quality finish I expected. I would recommend to all who want to get a high-quality product for a reasonable prices.
Very happy with result ... good quality and very professional Customer service ... recommend to others Won’t be the cheapest but worth it for the quality.
I have been getting shirts made from Kings Tailor, for some time now. I started with 1 and now has 14! The fitting, color and wear is great! The site is easy to use to and always a pleasure to do business with. Thank you adding style to my wardrobe!
Thanks Kings Tailor who did a great job and also the quality and attention to details provided, highly recommended
On a personal recommendation I tried Kings Tailor with 3 tailored shirts. High end quality in every aspect: craftsmanship, material and excellent service.
The pattern paper is shown on the right. This paper is used to create and test patterns, which is shown above. Often times, the paper is drawn and re-drawn on so many times, holes appear. Drawing on pattern paper is great for practice.
When you decide that your pattern is worth testing on your model or form, trace it on muslin, which is an inexpensive drawable fabric. The muslin can be put into several versions before cutting, until the pattern is exactly what is wanted.
An Italian imported 100% pure linen in a chosen colour. For a 40 Medium-Long 2-piece suit, three and a half yards of fabric is sufficient.
When ordering a bespoke garment, the fabric is one of the most important decisions you can make. Purchasing the full cut at the fabric shop allows you to get a feel for the weight and drape, and what the colour will look like against your skin.
Bemberg makes the best lining because it is strong, holding up against dry cleaning and fraying. It is a lightweight material, and the jacket lining, as shown on the left in brown,is optional. This particular jacket will have a 1/4 lining in the shoulders, and the inside seams of the jacket will be finished by hand. Sleeve lining is required for function, or what is known as "slip" factor. This means that the arm will easily slide in and out of the jacket, never being hindered around the bicep or armhole.
Bemberg lining is also used to line the "knee" of trousers. However, these linen trousers will be unlined.
A very experienced tailor can hand-sew chest canvas from scratch. If it weren't so time consuming, this is something that I would do as well. However, because of the time involved, most tailors, including myself, will trim pre-made chest canvasses to size.
While a hand-sewn chest canvas is evidence of a well-made suit, it is the most difficult to sew. The process takes thousands of micro-pad stitches being floated between the front panel and the facing.
As seen on the left, a high-quality suit will have canvas sewn in between the two layers of the collar, much like with the chest canvas.
On the right is melton, a wool fabric usually used for the underside of the collar.
The pattern piece can be seen across the canvas and melton, in the picture above. This muslin piece will need to be cut three times; for the fabric top, the middle canvas, and the bottom melton.
The thread is the only source of polyester found on suits made by King's Tailor. Any poly thread must match the colour of the fabric.
Interfacing, an iron on adhesive used to add stability and structure to the backside of a fabric, is also known as fusing.
Inexpensive suits often use fusing rather than canvas on the front panels. However, even on high quality suits, interfacing is used on hemlines, pocket openings, and at the end of cuffs.
While not necessary, shoulder pads are a traditional element in a suit jacket. They can be made of any size or thickness. The suit I am currently working on will not have shoulder pads.
A sleeve head is similar to a shoulder pad, and is sewn on the outside edge at the top of the armhole. Sitting within the cap of the sleeve, it props up the sleeve setting providing structure and a nice line to the shoulder.
For jackets and trousers, the pocket bags are cut from heavier solid coloured cotton
