The Trunk Tailoring Made-to-Measure Service & Upcoming Event
Tailoring has always been at the core of what we do here at Trunk. For many years it was tailoring made by other people - unstructured sport coats from Boglioli, peak lapel suits from Camoshita, or our ongoing collaboration with Italy's Caruso, per Trunk - however, we have now begun to realise our dream of producing our own line of exquisite tailoring that truly embodies the Trunk aesthetic. Since AW15 we have been producing fine ready-to-wear tailoring in Italy, something we continue to do as we develop and expand our in-house line.
However it was always the aim to make the leap to providing a made-to-measure service for our customers. So many people who visit us on Chiltern Street have neither the time, nor the inclination, nor the budget for full bespoke garments, but still want high quality tailoring cut from their choice of fabrics, with an emphasis on impeccable fit. As such, a made-to-measure service seemed the perfect addition to our shop.
We've set about creating an extensive range of some of our favourite fabrics - flannels from Fox Brothers, wools from Ariston, corduroys from Holland & Sherry, and a host of high quality fabrics from Loro Piana. From these, customers have the option of a two-piece suit, jacket or trousers, all of which can be tweaked and altered in any way the customer wishes, be it a pair of high-waisted flannel trousers, an unstructured cotton jacket, or a worsted wool double-breasted suit.
A made-to-measure garment begins with an initial fitting appointment, wherein the bulk of the decisions are made. This is followed by a second appointment once the suit arrives, in roughly 6 weeks, with the purpose of making minor adjustments and perfecting the fit.
Our made-to-measure service is an ongoing endeavour and appointments are available year round, however, from 13th to 24th Feburary (excluding 18th and 19th), we will be running a special made-to-measure event at our 8 Chiltern Street shop. Slots will be available for initial fittings and consultations during this time. For each order comprising at least one suit or jacket, customers will receive a silk knit tie from premier Milanese tiemakers, Bigi.
If you wish to make an appointment for our made-to-measure event, please email us at email@example.com and give us an idea of what you are after. Alternatively you can call us on 02030305101, or pop in to our 8 Chiltern Street shop and speak to a member of staff.
