You'll be sure of perfect fit, elegance, style, and something exceptional that cannot be achieved with the purchase of a made to measure garment.

Your experience at Harris & Howard Bespoke begins with the initial consultation with your clothier. This is the first step in making your ideas come to life.

 

As we’re visiting clothiers, this will be at your home or office or, you may choose to visit us at our beautiful showroom in Alderley Edge, Cheshire.

Finally, when you’re satisfied with your chosen garment, and we’ve taken all the necessary measurements, we’ll take a 50% deposit and schedule your fitting.

 

It’s important to understand that the bespoke process should not be rushed, so we recommend allowing at least 6-8 weeks between consultation and fitting to give time for craftsmanship of the highest quality.

The moment we've finished crafting your bespoke garment, your clothier will request to see you for your first fitting. If any refinements are required, they will chalk, pin, and adjust the garment until you are satisfied. 

 

Once the alterations have been carried out, your pattern is updated, the balance is collected, and the bespoke garment is yours to start wearing.
