A well-tailored suit is a staple in any man’s wardrobe. Aside from the fit, complete customisation is the way to go, right down to the last detail. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or looking for a stylish gift this holiday season, we’ve shortlisted five of the best spots to bag a bespoke suit.

Participate in the design process of your suit – from selecting the materials and cut as well as finishing touches – at Cuffs’ “shirt bar” and “suit bar”. They also offer a gift box for those looking for the perfect prezzie for the man in their life. The box includes a collar and a voucher that can be used to redeem a bespoke shirt. As an extra personal touch, a customized print label with a photo of your choice and a personalized message can be sewn onto the finished shirt, available for an additional $100 only.
Suit Access boasts over 3,000 fabric choices, including material by H. Lesser & Sons, Smith Woollens, Scabal, Loro Piana, Ermenegildo Zegna and Hardy Minnis, to name a few. After taking your measurements, the store will send over a tailor-made prototype suit crafted with recycled fabric to give customers a preview of what to expect. Once that’s approved, the tailors finally cut your chosen fabric to create your suit.
If you want a bespoke suit but also want the process to be as swift and convenient as possible, Bonham Strand is your best bet. The team does measurements and fittings at any location of your choice, from your home to even your office. To support sustainable fashion, Bonham Strand also offers a $200 cash vouchers for each old suit donated to them.
