The Process

Our Ordering Process

At Alaise Taylor, our process has been built on years of experience.

Our expert cutters and tailors are masters of their craft using skills passed from generation to generation; this not only guarantees unrivalled quality but also garments steeped in years of English heritage. Our process is simple, yet sophisticated, providing you with bespoke garments, reflecting your tastes and personality, that you'll treasure for a lifetime.

.01

Make an appointment

The process begins with an appointment at the workshop. Book in with us, sit down with our fabric books and enjoy a hot drink or two; selecting your fabric may take longer than you think because we have thousands to choose from.

.02

Designing the piece

Having chosen a fabric it’s time to design the garment. Every piece made uses a unique pattern drawn out by our cutters for you personally. You will be taken through the myriad of design options available allowing you to personalise every variable of your garment and really make it your own.

.03

Final measurements

In the final part of your first booking we’ll take full-body measurements which we use to draft your pattern. During this stage special attention will be paid to the type of fit you want whether a traditional relaxed fit, a shaped fit or a contemporary slim fitting garment. Don’t worry though, this is only the first fitting, the garment will be honed further during the next stage.

.04

First fitting

Within two weeks you will be contacted for your first fitting. The first time a piece is made for you a partially constructed fitting will be created to ensure that the fit is on the right track and meets your specifications. You will try your garment on with one of our experienced tailors who will make any adjustments necessary.

.05

Second fitting

Any alterations from your fitting will be applied to your pattern and your first garment made up. You can come to the workshop to try on your new piece or collect it to try at home. Once you’ve confirmed the fit our Team can proceed with any remaining garments on your order applying any minor alterations to the pattern when necessary.

.06

Creating the patterns

With your ideal fit confirmed, your pattern is updated and saved to make the reordering process quick and easy. You choose new fabrics and styles and Alaise Taylor use the established pattern they have to create your new garment.

.07

Completing your order

The whole process from start to finish takes roughly four to six weeks depending on our waiting list although we do offer express services. Reordering is quicker as we don’t have to go through the fitting process again, taking four weeks for shirts and eight weeks for suits.
