Created in CAD pattern cut by laser – Artefact London Advanced Made to Measure
Paper pattern drawn & cut by hand in Bespoke
Bespoke is a traditional way to commission a garment.
A tailor will take 25-30 measurements and create a paper pattern. The pattern is chalked on the cloth from the paper and cut by hand. The cloth is basted to create the garment.
At your first fitting, you will be asked to try on the basted construction – it is for a cutter to verify the design and make some corrections. At this point either further changes to the pattern will be made, or the tailors will go ahead with stitching the garment.
At the 2nd fitting you will judge the result and provide feedback, further fittings may be needed based on your comments. At the final fitting minor alterations may still be required. You will need anything between 3-5 fittings and 8-16 weeks to receive the finished garment.
Artefact London specialises exclusively in Made to Measure technique that rivals bespoke in results.
There is a great variability in how flexible each MTM system used is, most tailors use linear measurements only to create your pattern.
Overwhelming majority of famous brands will only make very basic modifications to their House Cut to make your garment.
At Artefact we will perform a thorough assessment of your posture and apply 60+ unique pattern alterations for jackets and 25+ for trousers to create your individual pattern.
Using advancements in technology your personal blueprint is created on a computer and laser cut with precision directly on the cloth. Our tailors will hand make the rest.
Artefact London is making a seamless blend between traditional sartorial mastership and latest technology, combining the best of two worlds to deliver high-quality tailoring faster at reasonable prices.
