Hemingway’s Visiting Tailor Service: Everything You Need to Know

27 July 2018
Bespoke and made to measure clothing is the height of sartorial excellence, taking dozens of hours of craftsmanship to produce from scratch. The investment of time combined with the level of skill involved result in the creation of the finest garments that fit perfectly and exactly match the individual’s preferences, wants and needs.
 
While grabbing a ready-to-wear item from your local high street will take only a few minutes, a tailored garment can take several fittings spread across a couple of months or so to perfect. The time investment may be more significant, but it’s clear that the end result is more than worth it.
 


In today’s busy world however, time is in demand and for many taking time to visit a tailor for fittings and try-on’s is impossible. As a result we offer a visiting tailor service to our customers. Enabling consultations to take place when and where it suits you, this service saves vital travelling time, enabling us to spend longer ensuring that your garments are perfectly fitted and designed, in surroundings that are convenient and familiar.
 
Read on to learn more about the benefits of our visiting tailor service:

 

Convenient Timing

Most of our clients are busy politicians or business people who simply can’t find the time to visit a tailor during working hours. By using our visiting tailor service, it’s much easier and more convenient for you to arrange your appointment with us.
 
Whether at your workplace, home, or another chosen location you can choose a time that suits you ideally – including evenings or weekends.
 

Less Travel

Travelling uses up precious time and is easier for some of us than for others but that’s no reason to abandon your dream of a tailored suit or dress. By using our visiting tailor service we can come to you instead, providing the full tailoring experience in the comfort of your own surroundings. Rather than trying to cram in travelling to an appointment in between working hours or weekend activities, the visiting tailor service saves you plenty of time which can be better spent in your appointment.
 
As well as offering this service in the UK, our tailors regularly travel abroad to meet with loyal customers in Montreal, New York, Chicago and Washington. No journey is too far!

 



Relaxed consultations

An initial consultation and even subsequent fittings can be daunting prospects, particularly if this is the first time you’ve ever considered purchasing a tailor-made item. During your first consultation, you’ll have to make numerous choices and we find that new clients feel more comfortable making these choices if they’re in a familiar environment. It is our goal to make you feel happy to take your time when making decisions about cut, fabric choices and personalisation.
 

Fittings

Whether you opt for a made to measure or a bespoke garment, you’ll need to have dedicated fittings with your tailor to ensure that the clothing fits like a glove. Our made to measure service offers one fitting and our bespoke service up to four.  During a fitting, we’ll point out areas that could use some adjustment, and explain the steps we’ll take to improve them.
 
By utilising our visiting tailor service all of these fittings can be carried out wherever you are and at your utmost convenience, ensuring that the process is as enjoyable and as easy for you as it should be.
 

 

Hand Delivery

A huge benefit of the visiting tailor service is that once crafted and perfectly fitted, we can hand deliver your items to your door.
 
We also offer an attentive aftercare service to refresh and revive clothing which includes sponging, pressing and carrying out any necessary repairs to ensure that it looks its best for years to come.
 
If you’d like to kick off the process and become the proud owner of your very own tailor-made suit, coat, dress or other item, book an appointment with us online today or call  0113 2008775 or 0207 701 0595.
