Bespoke Tailoring

This section specifically covers the bespoke tailoring and bespoke shirt-making departments of Dege & Skinner.

To make a bespoke garment, how long does it normally take?

From your first appointment and the placement of an order, it takes approximately 12 weeks to deliver your bespoke clothing.

Who will I see?

At Dege & Skinner, one cutter is solely responsible for overseeing the entire bespoke making process for an individual customer. From your first appointment to the delivery of the finished garments.

Where will my appointment be?

You have options! Either at number 10 Savile Row in London, or at a location convenient to you in the UK. Alternatively, during one of our overseas trunk shows.

At present we’re restricted from travel due to the pandemic, but hope that will change in the coming months. Details of trunk shows are published online and also in our once a month customer email.

You’ll have at least two fittings: a ‘baste’ fitting and a forward fitting.
