Details of our overseas and UK trunk shows will be posted on this page. Once details have been published you’ll be able to book your appointment via our online booking service, over the phone or via email. Our team will then meet you at that location, as arranged.
Our Front of House Manager Jonathan Atkins-Hewitt will deal with appointments at 10 Savile Row and all new customer enquiries for Savile Row. For new customers a dedicated bespoke Cutter will then be assigned for your first appointment.
Our bespoke cutter will take your measurements, about 35 measures in total, and make figuration notes.
The cutter will guide you through our fabric bunches and explain the bespoke tailoring process. With an almost limitless choice of cloths, this experienced guidance can prove invaluable. Photos are also taken as an aide-memoire for the cutter.
On Savile Row
On return to our Savile Row cutting room, a unique paper pattern will be constructed using all of the information gathered.
Once the paper pattern is complete, the various elements are 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 ‘bundled’ together. This bundle goes down to the workshop where one of our specialist in-house tailors starts to sew it together to create a ‘baste’ fitting.
At this point we arrange to see you again for your baste fitting.
Depending on what’s most convenient, you can either arrange for appointments and fittings to be in Savile Row or during our next Trunk Show near to your preferred location.
As a family-owned business we can be flexible so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any special requirements. If we can accommodate your request, we gladly will.
And please remember, you don’t have to have your fittings in the same location as where you originally placed your order.
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. This proves the bespoke garment’s authenticity.
On occasion, Dege & Skinner bespoke pieces have appeared at auction and this label has helped to verify the item’s provenance, and therefore its value. For example, an authentic Dege & Skinner safari suit made in 1923 for actor Rudolph Valentino fetched $20,000 at Bonham’s film memorabilia auction titled ‘Lights, Camera, Auction’ in 2016.
