The Travelling Tailor

One16 was created by Hardman & Hemming to offer a new service for customers who wanted a tailored suit that offered features they were used to with an ‘off the peg’ such as contrast lining piping and embroidered collar meltons and at a price that was similar to a top notch high street suit.

A One16 made to measure suit is a one off tailored garment, manufactured to the highest standards that ensure the best possible quality and fit for the customer. Modern tailoring and manufacturing techniques allow us to add details, that are too time intensive to be done by hand on our bespoke suits, but are becoming increasingly desirable in a modern suit. Prices start from £799 for a two-piece suit with typical timescales for a finished suit being around 8 to 10 weeks.

So how does it work? Well it’s very similar to our bespoke service.

Cloth & Lining

Firstly, you choose the cloth and lining from the same range as our bespoke service, paying attention to not only how you want it to look but also when and where you might wear it.  Are you a commuter? Is it for that special occasion and it’s only going to leave the wardrobe twice a year?

Style

Being a made to measure service this is where you can really let your imagination run wild, don’t worry though our tailors are on hand to make sure you don’t do anything too ‘out there’.

With our style and detail books on hand to guide your through the process you can pick, not only, the main style of suit, but also the finer details from coloured cuff buttonhole stitching to extreme slanted pockets, you decide.

Measurements & cutting the suit

As with our bespoke service before we reach for the tape measure we take the time to talk about what look you want, how you see the fit and if there are any areas of the suit which have given you regular headaches in terms of fit.

Fittings

We offer a number of options with our fittings, if you’re tight for time we can go to a straight finish if you want us but we do like to offer the full fitting service. But rest assured we will always make sure that you get the best fit possible whichever option you choose.

Final fitting & collection

Once we have completed the fitting process and made the required changes we will invite you in for your final fitting.  The suit is then yours to take away and start wearing.

After care

As with the bespoke service, it is important to us that you are happy with your suit, so don’t feel like you can’t pop back and see us once it’s been worn a few times. As we say the proof is in the wearing.

Buying a tailored suit is not something we all do every day, so make sure you get the most from it. Have the suit you want and enjoy the process of having it made, and that’s what we are here to do.
