Custom & Bespoke

Because of our close relationships with artisans across the world, we’re able to provide custom options for the majority of the brands we carry. Our mission is to provide an exceptionally personal experience.

Understanding our custom offerings

Custom comes in three flavors at The Armoury: Made-to-Order (MTO), Made-to-Measure (MTM), and Bespoke. We're serious about custom and we are particular about the language we use. Not every custom piece is (or necessarily should be) bespoke, so we want to be transparent about the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Made-to-Order

Garments are made according to preset sizes and models, often with limited additional options such as linings and buttons. Benefits: Economical option for customers who fit our ready-to-wear well and want more cloth options.

Made-to-Measure

Fit adjustments are made to the pre-existing patterns of fitting garments, usually with more extensive additional options available. Benefits: Large selection of options in fit and detail, Improved fit over MTO, Shorter delivery time frame and less fittings required than bespoke.

Bespoke

Designed from scratch for a specific customer and not based on any pre-existing garment. Bespoke can provide a fit and style that is completely unlike the other custom options. It is a much more involved process between the tailor and the customer, so it can only be performed with a bespoke artisan during a trunk show. Benefits: Truly unique garments, made singly for an individual customer, Building a good relationship with a trusted tailor is a pleasure.
