Trunk Shows (full)

Dege & Skinner is based on Savile Row, but demand for our tailoring and bespoke shirt-making services is such that we also travel outside of London to host various Trunk Shows. Regular trunk shows are held in USA, Switzerland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Middle East and the UK.

Dege & Skinner Trunk Shows

01

Request
an appointment

Firstly, book your appointment to see one of our bespoke cutters and/or our bespoke shirt cutter at one of the locations scheduled during our Trunk Shows.

Our team will meet you at that hotel as arranged.

02

Measuring and
fabric selection

Our bespoke cutter will take your measurements, about 35 measures in total, and make figuration notes.

Then the cutter will guide you through our fabric bunches and explain the bespoke tailoring process.

03

HandMade
On Savile Row

On return to our Savile Row cutting room, a unique paper pattern will be constructed using all of the information gathered. This unique personal pattern is available to view at any of the subsequent meetings and will give an insight into a normally unseen part of the bespoke tailoring process.

Once all patterns are complete they will be laid onto the selected cloth and drawn around using tailoring chalk. These lines are then cut along by hand using large tailoring shears to create the individual panels of a garment.

All the internal canvases, lining and other components are now selected and ‘bunched’ together, ready for one of our specialist in-house tailors to sew together in our Savile Row workshop, to create a ‘baste’ fitting.

At this point we arrange to see you again for your baste fitting.

Our in-house basement workshop on London’s historic Savile Row houses a number of tailors and each maker will specialise in either coat making, trouser making, or waistcoat making.

04

Fitting
and tailoring

Depending on what’s most convenient for you, we can either arrange for fittings to be in Savile Row or during our next Trunk Show near to your preferred location.

And, you don’t have to have your fittings in the same location as where you placed your order.

05

Hand finished
and delivered

After making any required adjustments following your fittings, your suit will be hand-finished.

An official Dege & Skinner label will be hand-stitched into the main bespoke piece, with details of your cutter and the piece’s completion date, to prove authenticity. On occasion, Dege & Skinner pieces have appeared at auction and this label has helped to ensure the item’s provenance.

Once the suit is complete and both you and cutter are happy, you can collect your suit or we’ll deliver it to an address of your choice.

Upcoming Trunk Shows

We normally travel three or four times a year for overseas Trunk Shows. Details are published here and also in our once a month customer email.
