The Bespoke Experience

The Process

The term “bespoke” heralds its origins from a time in Saville Row, renowned for fine custom tailoring, when cloth for a suit was said to “be spoken for” by a customer. This is indeed the approach that Lord’s Tailor takes to ensure that every piece of clothing made is perfectly suited to the customer.

“We listen to what our customers want and meticulously measure every customer. Then we’ll suggest the best combination of fabrics in terms of colour and material type, cut and style to ensure that the end result flatters the customer,” says Robert Loh. The founder and master cutter of Lord’s Tailor, understands that a well-cut suit is one of the best investments in fashion a man can have. Lord’s Tailor has 38 years of experience creating the finest bespoke garments. Lord’s is the pre-eminent Malaysian tailor renowned for quality – combining the perfect cut, quality fabrics and comfort.

Precise Fit

At LORD’s, we understands that a well-cut suit is one of the best investments in fashion a man can have. Our Master Cutter skillfully approaches each fabric using his extensive knowledge of physics and engineering to accurately cut the cloth to the exacting measurements of the individual he is working on, thus being able to keep the material proportionally flattering to the entire body no matter the shape. Wearing a piece of clothing made by Lord’s Tailor gives its customers the confidence to feel and look their best.

THE FABRICS

Creating the foundation – The master tailor creates a pattern unique to the client. Every person is built differently; in the same way, no two patterns are ever alike. He meticulously aligns it with the fabric to make sure that each component of the suit – such as the chest piece, back panels, sleeves and collar – matches up precisely. This is particularly critical for suits with checks and stripes. The pattern is then cut by hand. A step that defines the bespoke process, it allows adjustments to be made easily. With this groundwork laid, the rest of the suit, including the inner canvassing, shoulder padding and felt, can be assembled.

THE DETAILS

Assembling and finishing – The garment is placed on a bust to confirm that the drape and form of the jacket are aligned correctly. The internal canvassing – typically made from a mix of linen and horsehair – is now sewn into the chest area. Enhancing a man’s shape, this allows easy movement, yet gives the jacket the snug fit of a second skin. It is also a mark of a suit’s pedigree, as only the finest handmade garments in the world are fully canvassed. Each step of workmanship – from attaching the felt lining for support in the collar to finishing the buttonholes – is then carried out by hand, involving over 200 tailors, each with a specialised role.

For me, it's all about the quality. This is what I get consistently from LORD's Tailor, so I don't go anywhere else. People have commented on how nice my clothes are and they always think it's made in London but I always tell them it's Made in Malaysia, by my tailor, LORD's Tailor.
