BESPOKE SUITS

Chris Kerr makes bespoke suits the traditional way – by hand, in Soho, following the long tradition of hand craft tailoring.

Customers start by choosing a cloth from the wide range of swatches Chris keeps in his shop on Berwick Street. Measurements are taken and the style of suit discussed, including details like vents, lapels and pockets

Customers return for a first fitting where a ’rough baste’ of the suit is adjusted for fit This is then ‘ripped down’ to its separate parts, recut and prepared for the second fitting, where the suit is nearly the finished article but changes can still be made to fit and size.  

The finished suit is tried on at the final fitting, typically 8 weeks from order.
