Denim Blue Bespoke SuitBusiness attire doesn’t need to be uninteresting or nondescript.
Even in the most conservative settings, subtle details and a great fit can set your look apart.

Every year we work with clients from all walks of life—from artists and performers who need to express their individuality in the boldest fashion—to lawyers and bankers for for whom a more strict dress code applies.

For an artist, or someone in a creative field, a bold plaid may be called for.  For a banker, we can look closely at the sheen and drape of the fabric and the subtle details of the prick-stitching and hand-tacking of pocket ends.

Tabbed Suit Cuff Denim BlueDenim Blue 3pc Suit PinstripedOn every piece that we make, we can examine and consider hundreds of possibilities from the most subtle to the most bold.

And in each case, we work with a client to get exactly the fit that he is looking for—-whether this means something that is as fitted as possible or something that has more of a classic drape.

Double Breasted Bespoke SuitThe suit pictured is cut from a Japanese woven heavyweight wool suiting in denim blue with a contrast linen vest.

The style features a somewhat cropped jacket length with a fitted silhouette.  The jacket has patch pockets, metal buttons, a curved placket, tabbed sleeve cuffs, and contrast top-stitching in rust color.

The pants are high-waisted with a fitted thigh and seat and a wide leg with a deep cuff.

All of these details give the suit a contemporary “mod” look that is both business-ready and also sporty, durable, and wrinkle free.

But this is just one option from thousands of possible suits.

We work with you from initial sketches and swatches to a muslin fitting (where we mail you a cotton mock-up of the suit to try on and you send digital pics), so that we can be sure we are building exactly the suit you are looking for at every stage.

Each year we work with clients all over the world who are looking to build something unique.  All of our suits are made here in our studio in Denver, Colorado.

Classic Gabardine SuitWe are proud to be one of the few tailors in the US that makes garments from scratch in our workshop.
Most places that offer “tailoring” merely alter existing ready made garments.
Others offer made-to-measure suits by brands such as Tom James that are produced in centralized factories.
But we run a tailoring house on a different model.
If you wanted to understand the single biggest reason that men’s business attire has remained relatively frozen in time since the 1920s and 1930s, you need look no further than the gradual eclipse of the tailoring house by ready-made fashions.
At one point in time, everyone dressed differently.  Individuality and personality were bywords.
Pockets were shaped and placed to store the exact items that a given individual carried every day.
Pants and jackets were styled not by a mystical set of rules, but rather to flatter and to express.
But with mass produced suits, every style suddenly needed to appeal to 100,000 customers. A programmer was supposed to wear the same suit as an executive and the executive was suppose to wear the same suit as the programmer.
We make unique suits for unique people.
Because we can make every style of pocket, every style of waistcoat, can cut pants with an immeasurable number of fits.
Because we don’t have any standard rules or molds.  Because we make suits from any number of novel fabrics, we can offer a virtually infinite amount of choices.

Many of the projects that we take are those that have been turned down by other tailors because  the factories that they contract with are unable to handle anything that deviates more than a hair from the mass model.

Unlike most tailors, we understand the needs of creative professionals.
We will work with you to design a suit from the ground up that expresses what you need to express at the events that you attend.
The navy suit pictured in this posting is a recent suit that we made for a local customer who had been unable to find a pant style that he liked at the shops.  He wanted a suit that was traditional, but not in the way that “traditional” suits tend to be.

He very graciously allowed me to snap a few pictures for our site.
The suit is made from a 10.5 oz gabardine that is extremely durable and perfect for travel.  With hand pick-stitching on the lapels and handmade buttonholes on the jacket and the waistcoat.

The grey flannel suit is another recent business suit project.  This piece was made from a gorgeous pinstripe flannel fabric.
All of our suits are made using a couture muslin technique.  For this process we make the suit first in a rough cotton muslin.
Then we either mail this to you and have you send us pictures of yourself trying it on, or fit it on you in person if you can make it to Denver.  We analyze the way that the muslin hangs and create a new pattern based on what we learn.
This allows us to get a perfect fit in person or long distance.

“Tropical Wool.” The whole idea boggles the mind of those new to the world of fine menswear. An oxymoron, surely?
Customers come to us with only one thing that they are certain of: They do not want wool suits. No one would recommend a wool suit for a wedding in July in the deep South, would they?
Tan Tropical Wool 3pc SuitBut often wool is just what is called for when the humidity and tempratures are extreme.

A Brown Tropical Wool Suit Lined in Leno Stripe Cotton

Tropical wool is fine and lightweight.
In fact, if you purchase a cotton shirt to wear with the suit, the cotton shirting will often be quite a bit heavier. Tropical wools are often about 7.5 ounces in weight. What is more, wool breathes. It is a natural fiber that wicks away moisture and keeps you feeling dry. When you pair a tropical wool with a rayon or cotton batiste lining, it makes for a suit that is equally as summer ready as a seersucker or linen suit.
What makes tropical wool unique in the world of summer suits is that it is utterly crisp, smooth to the hand, and often has the slight sheen that comes with a superfine fabric. A tropical wool suit is in every way formal. Make a tux from it, and it is simply a tux. Make a business suit from a tropical wool, and it is simply a fine suit that is ready for business.
Linen and cotton are always a bit relaxed and summery. But tropical wool is perfect for the summer suit that doesn’t feel like a summer suit. The retro design of the vest (with the straight hem) and jacket for the tan suit was loosely inspired by some Steve McQueen movie stills that the customer sent to us. We wanted to do something that felt fresh and modern but with some interesting 1960s detailing.
But we can make a tropical wool suit with any set of details you can imagine. Just contact A.J. (aj@denverbespoke.com ) to talk more about having a custom suit made. Using our muslin fitting process, we can get a great fit no matter where in the world you reside.
