1.

THE CONVERSATION: we talk about your goals and the process

The first fitting really starts as a conversation about how you want to look. We want to know if you have a special occasion in mind, like a wedding or a banquet. Or if you simply need a good suit for business travel or treating yourself to something a bit more fun.

Bring ideas. A Pinterest board, your favorite Instagram feed, pages torn from Elle or GQ. Bring us pictures of what you like. Of what you want. Pictures of how you want to feel when you’re wearing your custom clothing.

2.

you select your favorite fabrics, lining, cut, buttons, stitching...

We’ll look through swatches from the finest mills in the world, and from our many thousands of options, we’ll help you pick exactly the right one for you, for your event, for your comfort.

Together, we’ll pair it with the perfect buttons, the perfect thread, and the perfect lining.

3.

We take your MEASUREMENTS

Once we understand how you wish to look and feel, we compare that against existing patterns. And we take your measurements.

What should you wear? Something comfortable, not too thick, not too loose. Jeans and a t-shirt are easy for us to work with. Cable-knit sweaters make things difficult.

4.

you officially commission your piece

To begin crafting your custom clothing, we’ll need at least 60% of the total, at the end of your fitting. The remainder can be paid when the items are finished.

We also have Gift Card options and can arrange payment plans if necessary. Just let us know in advance and we’ll gladly work with you.

additional notes about preparation

All of this takes about 90 minutes. But please plan on 2 hours, just in case. If you are being fitted in shop, arrive a little bit early so that you can find a parking space and enjoy the sites of Pierpont Avenue.

Your fitting is essentially a one-on-one appointment between you and the Tailor Cooperative Personal Clothier … but yes, you can bring a friend. By all means! There are several seats at the fitting table and it can be helpful (and fun) to have a second opinion at-the-ready.
