Made Exactly For You
This is one day where every man should want to look his best and we advise early consideration to avoid the unnecessary stress caused by lack of planning. Although no man wants to outshine his partner on their wedding day he will still need to embrace the theme of the happy occasion when thinking about his choice and style of suit.
We Make High Quality, Custom Wedding and Groomsmen Suits
Considering what to wear for the biggest day of your life can be a daunting task for any prospective groom. At Marc Oliver we understand the importance of making the right choices for this occasion and will help you stay relaxed by simplifying this process. Even if you wish to keep your outfit as a surprise we recommend consulting your partner on the theme and colour as it will make for more relaxed decisions and dispel any concerns they may have.
It is important to have agreed on a few basics before you start to consider your own outfit and how your best man and family members are required to dress for your wedding day is a perfect example. These decisions are usually better when made with your partner beforehand. The decision on weight and colour of cloth is usually controlled by the location and colour scheme of the event. It follows that if your wedding is overseas in a hotter climate you will naturally want to consider lighter colours in a summer weight cloth.
Recently there has been a growing trend to move away from morning suits; however, they are still an important consideration for a church wedding. As morning suits are traditional wedding wear they can add an extra feel of importance to the day (please see our section for morning suits).
Only the Finest Materials
Personal linings are an excellent way to express individuality and ensure that our client really makes the suit his own and is for this reason that we now offer a range of more than 600 high quality linings in patterns and plain colours. Finally, suits can then be monogramed with dates and special wording, (if desired) in a variety of fonts and finished with a personal choice of button for the ultimate finishing touch.
Designed & Cut to Perfection
Most clients have an initial idea of what they are looking for; however, we are happy to sit down and discuss some ideas with you even if you are starting with a blank canvass. These discussions are usually more productive if you have firstly taken a little time to consider the basic outlines of what you are hoping to achieve and the possible colour of cloth, however these are by no means final. Although we are known for the clean slim lines of our tailoring we balance these skills with a client’s individual requests, whichever style you choose the result will be a perfect balance between cut, design and performance.
Constructed In Our Milan Studios
Suits can be personalized by choosing a waistcoat from one of our classic designs. These can be made in fine plain wools or even a beautiful silk fabric in a range of patterns. Waistcoats are a perfect way of uniting the look of a wedding party and are often bought in addition to the groom’s suit as they are a more cost-effective alternative to buying a complete outfit for close party members.
How It Works
Measurements & Style Consultation
We know that visiting a tailor for the first time can be a fairly daunting prospect for most people; however;our aim is to quickly dispel any fears our prospective clients may have by making the process as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
Most clients have an initial idea of what they are looking for; however,we are happy to recommend some aspirational designs after understanding their needs.
Our tailor’s ability to interpret these requests transforms a simple length of cloth into a suit with characteristics as unique as the person who is wearing it.
Although we have been making fine hand tailored clothing for many years we take particular care to ensure we understand your needs at every stage of the process.
We achieve this through a free-flowing dialogue between client and tailor where every detail and decision is discussed before moving on to the next stage.
Our tailors will simplify the selection and fitting process by using jargon free terms and demonstrate the benefits of the choices available to you.
Pattern Cutting & Construction
Elegance should never come at the expense of a wearer’s comfort, it is therefore vital for us to understand our client’s requirements before we start measuring.
We combine this information with our skilled measuring techniques to ensure the finished garment will fit perfectly and compliment the wearer.
An experienced tailor’s interpretation of a client’s body shape and measurements is extremely important as he can allow for subtle differences that would otherwise be missed and make any adjustments accordingly.
Once our client has selected the cloth we then take a comprehensive range of personal body measurements, these are all noted in a personalised record that is updated throughout the process and then stored for future use.
All fabrics are then ordered and sent to Milan ready for cutting on the next working day, turnaround around times vary depending on the individual order but normally fall between 6-7 weeks.
First & Second Fitting
After approximately 5 weeks we will be in touch to arrange your first fitting; at this stage your suit will be made, but unfinished. Your tailor will try your garment on you to assess where tweaks and other important adjustments need to be made to ensure the final suit will fit perfectly.
Finally, normally around a week or so later we will be in touch to arrange your final fitting when your suit will be ready to take home with you. All the adjustments and tweaks that we have made throughout our fitting processes will now be carefully applied to your individual pattern ensuring a quicker and more fluid process the next time you order from us.
