The tailoring process at Gargee Designer’s combines traditional methods with a modern approach.
The tailor works from scratch with each individual client, starting with the unique paper pattern cut to the client’s measures. With the help of the expert, the client selects the cloth from our range of luxurious fabrics. The particular style that has been selected is then transferred to the cloth using the particular pattern as a template. Trial follows & the result is a garment that is unique and original to the client.
The beauty of bespoke tailoring is that everything is possible and that any request can be met.
Step 1 – Cloth Selection
Gargee Designer’s offers an extensive range of materials with our bespoke cloth collections exceeding 2000 fabrics. With the help of an expert, the client selects the cloth keeping in mind the particular style, occasion & details.
Step 2 – Measurements
Measurements are carefully taken by the cutter, who also takes into account all the characteristics of the individual’s physique such as posture, shoulders drop and any minute variations in the lengths of the arms.
Step 3 – Pattern Cutting
The measurements are used to create the paper pattern, which is cut by hand. The pattern works as a personal template for what we make up for the client. Each client has his own individual pattern that serves as the blueprint for his bespoke garments.
Step 4 – Fabric Cutting
When the cloth reaches cutter, the paper pattern is laid out on the cloth and chalked around. The cloth is then cut by hand, creating all the individual panels for the garment. At this stage, our cutters purposely leave extra cloth at the inlays to allow the suit to be altered at a future date should the client’s weight change.
Step 5 – Trim
Once the cloth has been cut to shape, creating the foundation of the suit, additional materials are assembled, such as natural wool canvasses, linen and the finest silks and linings. The materials are sorted by hand to ensure quality control, checking for quality, strength, fineness and appearance.
Step 6 – Putting Together
After the trim has been added to the suit, the customer’s garment is assigned to his tailor, who will use his well-trained eye to observe the pattern for the smallest imperfections. Only when he is entirely satisfied, he begin sewing it together. The suit is then canvassed by hand and is readied for the fitting.
Step 7 – Fitting or Trial
During the fitting, the cutter begins to mark the alterations to suit the client’s posture & requirement. He inspects the break over shoe, the seat of trouser, the drape, neck point and cuffs, to name only a few key points of inspection with an eye toward making all required adjustments and refinements.
Step 8 – Finishing
After the fitting, the garment is completely taken apart, pressed and re-cut, taking in to account any necessary adjustments. After trial, the client’s master pattern is changed & saved for any future garments. Once marking up has been done to the cutter’s satisfaction, the suit is given back to the tailor to be stitched for the final fit.
Step 9 – Final Fitting
The suit is now ready for the final fitting. The bespoke process that starts from the initial cloth selection, pattern cutting, fabric cutting & trim to putting together & trial is completed following the finishing process. The client now tries on the finished suit which is closely inspected and approved by the cutter to be delivered.
