At J. H. Cutler every item of bespoke clothing is made to each client’s exact measurements. Individual physical characteristics are taken into account and personal consultation plays a pivotal role in the process. No other method produces a better garment for fit, styling, and quality. “Wearing bespoke clothing on your wedding day will ensure that you look and feel confident and completely at ease, on what will be the most important day of your life so far,” says John.
He goes on to comment. “The bridal dress is often the most expensive clothing purchase a woman will make in her life, but it is worn for only a few hours on her wedding day. Now men are gradually coming to realise that they too have the opportunity of looking and feeling their absolute best on the big day, whilst at the same time investing in an item of clothing that will be suitable for many other formal occasions in the future.”
Trained in London at the renowned Tailor and Cutter Academy, John’s skills as a designer and cutter have been honed over his more than 50 years in the business. His own team of highly skilled craftsmen, including jacket makers, trouser makers and alteration hands support him.
Fabrics are primarily sourced from leading merchants in Britain and Italy including Dormeuil, Scabal, Holland and Sherry, Loro Piana and Ermenegildo Zegna. They include woollen fabrics; nearly all woven using Australian Merino wool, cashmere, vicuna, cottons, linens and silks.
Such quality is not inexpensive with suits starting from $6,000. It is also important to plan well in advance. “It’s prudent to allow a minimum of three months from the time of your first appointment,” John suggests. Clearly, like everything else to do with marriage, the acquiring of bespoke clothing from J. H. Cutler for your wedding day is not something that should be rushed.
