Our made-to-measure service allows you to perfectly tailor your dream suit to any figure. Our brand will ensure the outfit is made from the highest quality materials.
Tailoring is a lengthy process, but thanks to our modern method of taking measurements, we are able to reduce the waiting time for your product. Our method involves using a ready-made gauge set in addition to the tailor's centimetre. Instead of the standard six months, our customers can expect the final result after an average of two and a half months of cooperation, and sometimes it is even sooner.
Top quality fabrics, hundreds of cuts and details to choose from. Learn the secrets of made-to-measure sewing and feel the difference of having a product tailored to you in every way.
Made-to-measure sewingThe made-to-measure sewing method was invented with the customer in mind – it allows the order to be fully tailored to the customer's individual measurements and preferences. It is a technique that combines elements of both made-to-measure and ready-to-wear – mass-produced clothes. As a result, the waiting time for a creation is shorter than the standard six months. We offer an extensive service for matching both the materials and the many details of the garments. Thanks to our wide range, we are sure that every customer will find a satisfactory combination for themselves.
Made-to-measure sewing – techniques
Made-to-measure sewing for jackets is usually based on one of two methods. These are the half-canvas and full-canvas techniques.
The half-canvas technique is appreciated by clients looking for top quality tailored suits. It not only allows the jacket to fit the client's body better, but it is also more comfortable, more durable and has a natural look.
The semi-traditional construction – half-canvas – involves filling the chest area with up to four layers of canvas. The three-piece construction, consisting of a lining, an outer fabric (cloth) and canvas, the middle layer, is the most common. The lower part of the jacket is stiffened with interlining. This construction adds lightness to the suit and ensures that it adapts properly to the curves of your body in the chest area.

A suit made using the full-canvas method is undoubtedly an investment for years to come, providing a sense of elegance, comfort as well as extraordinary product durability. The canvas structure ensures that your jacket retains its natural shape and top quality.
Filling the jacket completely with canvas is a feature of the traditional full-canvas method. This is an exclusive bespoke sewing technique that is currently only made by a few craftsmen or tailors. The level of fit of the jacket to the body is even greater in this than in the half-canvas method.
Due to the product's ability to adapt to the customer's body movements and its extreme durability, making a jacket using this method is more labour-intensive and, naturally, more expensive than using the previous techniques. When choosing this option to create your suit, you must expect a correspondingly higher surcharge, which, however, will undoubtedly translate into the final quality of the garment.
Blazers – finishing
Full lining, half lining and no lining are the three standard options for finishing the interior of a tailored jacket.
The first option works best for blazers that are sewn with the intention of being used for formal events. On the other hand, the second and third options are recommended for less formal blazers or those intended for events in spring and summer.
If you decide to take advantage of Herse's offer and choose a jacket with a lining, you can rest assured about the quality of the latter – it will be made of a breathable material. We use cupro, which is a type of fabric finer than viscose, created from cellulose.
Choosing the right cut of a suit
Shirts, jackets, trousers, waistcoats, dinner jackets – all can be found in our brand's range. The products are inspired by traditional Italian and British tailoring.
In order to properly select the cut of a jacket to suit your figure and tastes, you need to be aware of the differences between the different types of jacket pieces. Tailoring gives you a lot of choice when it comes to pockets. Choose from classic with a patch, cut, overlapped or with an additional ticket pocket.
Another important element is the bruschetta. As a standard option, we offer a ruffle cut with a slight curve, which originates from Neapolitan tailoring.
When creating the bottom of your suit, you need to choose the height of the top, the type of front trim and, as with the jacket, the type of pockets. Most often trousers will have one or two pleats, but they may also have none. The waistband on the trousers will also be up to you – choose between belt loops or side adjusters.
If you decide to have a waistcoat tailored, you will choose between single and double-breasted models. Flaps or no flaps – our qualified advisors will also help you with this conundrum and will be happy to guide you through the entire bespoke sewing process.
Once you've explored our range, you'll find that choosing from more than a dozen finishes in a variety of widths and unique style details won't be easy.
