AUTHENTIC BESPOKE TAILORING

EXPERIENCE THE WORLD OF MICHEL'S BESPOKE

BESPOKE

Bespoke suits are made in-house from scratch, tailored to your individual measurements, refined through multiple fittings, and customised to your every preference and desire. It is the ultimate in luxury, with the highest level of expertise and hand construction.

The features of your bespoke suit are entirely at your behest. Under the guidance of our master tailor, you can customize every detail- the options are limitless.

A bespoke tailor will hand-cut a unique pattern to your individual shape, ensuring consideration of even the smallest nuance, and hand-sew each stitch. This means a perfect fit, no matter your body type or lifestyle.

MADE-TO-MEASURE

In contrast, made-to-measure suits are created when an existing pattern is adjusted according to a handful of measurements. They are offered in standard sizes, and are limited in terms of customisation options. The garment is presented finished without interim integral fittings.

Made-to-measure clothes are certainly a step beyond off-the-rack, and bespoke is a step further still. Bespoke tailoring results in superior suits that offer added quality, comfort and style.

THE ART OF DRESSING WELL

CULTIVATE A WARDROBE THAT BETTER REFLECTS YOUR PERSONAL STYLE 

Your journey begins with a consultation in which we determine your requirements, take your measurements and discuss any preferences and requests you may have. In addition to the many precise measurements, we take into consideration the nuances of your body, lifestyle and intended use of your suit.  

From here, our tailors hand cut a unique pattern from scratch, which will be used as a blueprint for your first fitting. Additional fittings may be required throughout the course of construction to ensure the integrity, perfect the fit and refine the details of your outfit. In total, six to eight weeks of production and over 22 hours of meticulous workmanship are needed to finalize the creation of your individual work of art.

RISE ABOVE FAST FASHION, AND BUILD A SUSTAINABLE WARDROBE OF CUSTOM BESPOKE CLOTHING, HANDMADE IN TORONTO

ENVIRONMENTAL

Handcrafting and individualising suits and shirts at home in Toronto results in extremely well-made garments that are adaptable, versatile and built to last. We take pride in every stitch. Timeless custom pieces can be worn season after season, reducing the needless waste of disposable fast-fashion.

Local manufacturing also eliminates the environmental footprint of the inefficient global logistics of offshore manufacturing. We source fabrics directly and create each garment to-order.
