In-Store Frequently Asked Questions
Where are your products constructed?
We build our suits and coats in Portugal. We build our shirts in Spain. We only offer cloth from well-known mills from Italy and England. Our shoes are crafted in Italy using Italian calf leather. Our neckties are built using Italian cloth and are cut and sewn in Italy and Spain. Our silk handkerchiefts are sewn in Italy.
Why buy custom clothing?
When your clothing is made for you specifically, you will enjoy the confidence and satisfaction derived from wearing a garment that fits you as no off-the-rack clothing can. You’ll have the assurance that your clothing was made to your specifications and was created by hand of high quality materials. By commissioning a custom piece of clothing, you have the ability to fully customize your garment. You choose each element of the suit or shirt according to your preferences.
What types of cloth do you carry?
We only source from the best European mills in the world including, Ermenegildo Zegna, Loro Piana, Vitale Barberis Canonico, Ariston Napoli, Reda, Guabello, Huddersfield, and Abraham Moon & Sons. This means there is no polyester or off-brand wools in any of our suit fabrics. Some are pure wool, cotton, linen, or cashmere while others may be various blends of the those materials along with silk, alpaca, and other luxurious materials.
How does the process work?
Our process has 4 steps: Schedule an appointment at one of our shops, choose your cloth, choose your design customizations, and get fitted. This initial consultation takes about 1 hour. In 5-6 weeks you will be contacted to schedule a final fitting where you will return to the shop. For the final fitting, you will try on the finished garment and take it home that day. In the event that alterations are needed we will happily do so.
Why don't you offer discounts?
The truth is that the discount is already reflected in the retail price. We know it might feel like a better deal if you get a discount off the posted retail price, but that's not our philosophy. We have eliminated all the middle men from our supply chain, we sell direct to the public, and we take unusually low margins compared to most retailers. We want to make European luxury available to the masses at reasonable prices. If we were in the discount game we would have to raise our posted prices only to then run sales and promotions back down to our current prices. We aren't interested in playing that game. We offer our prices at the lowest price we can and hope our clients can see the value.
Can I buy suit separates?
Yes, you can purchase individual items. A single pair of trousers. A sport coat or blazer. A separate vest. Or a two or three-piece suit. It's your choice.
Are multiple fittings required?
We do not use multiple fittings for your suit at this time. We ask detailed questions and put work into gathering your information accurately so that your clothing will fit how you want it to. This is also why we take so many measurements. This is also why we use various fit samples in our shops, to help focus the dialogue on the fit that you are seeking. This allows us to have a very detailed understanding of the shape of your body, as well as your particular needs. Having made thousands of suits and shirts, we've learned what it takes to craft a great custom garment from a set of measurements.This allows us to deliver a finished product that doesn't require alterations more than 90% of the time.
Is there an extra charge for large or tall sizes?
We charge a 10% premium for big and tall sizes. Typically this is for clients that wear a jacket USA size 50 and above or a trouser USA size 44 and above. Since we don't deal with traditional sizes, if you are borderline, please discuss this with us and we'll take care of you.
When do I pay for my clothing?
Payment for your clothing is processed immediately when you place your order.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Currently we accept payment through major credit cards.
I don't live near any of your shops. Is still possible to place an order?
Absolutely! This is a common request and something we regularly do for clients who don't live near a physical shop. There are a few methods we use to help produce a custom fitting garment. The method we choose depends on the body type of the client and their preference. Email us by using this online custom request form and we can get started!
How long does the process take?
Suits, separates, and shirts are built in 5-6 weeks. Actual lead times avary depending on the time of year. Please contact us for current lead times.
Is it possible to rush an order? My deadline is sooner than your normal lead time.
Absolutely! Rush orders can be accommodated depending on the time of year. Sometimes we are capable of rushing and delivering orders as fast as 3 weeks. Other factors such as current production volume and cloth availability are also important considerations. Please contact us for our current ability to accept a rush order as actual lead times vary depending on the time of year. A 10% surcharge will be added to your order.
Is your program bespoke, made-to-measure (MTM), or something else?
A good, common question that requires a long answer. First, the definitions of these terms can vary widely. In our opinion, the term "bespoke" is the highest standard of custom and includes a suit made at the location of the fittings, cut by the person measuring you, involving several mid-fittings, and offering an infinite set of design options. We do not offer this service, although we hope to down the road. "Made-To-Measure" is a term for a custom-made suit based on a pattern block where the clients measurements are used to modify the base pattern before it is cut and sewn. Typically MTM programs take only a few key measurements and offer a limited amount of customizations. To (finally) answer the question, we offer a MTM program with a heavy dose of bespoke options. When we founded Beckett & Robb we looked hard at the various programs in the market and decided we wanted to create a hybrid of bespoke and MTM. We knew we needed to manufacture overseas to keep costs reasonable, which eliminates a true bespoke program. We wanted to offer a vast array of customizations like bespoke makers offer, however. We also wanted to take far more measurements than MTM programs use, so we could be much more precise in our process, while providing a better experience. Conversely, we wanted to provide the consistency and predictability that MTM programs offer. We wanted to take advantage of the speed MTM offers, which can be several months faster than true bespoke. We wanted to use the latest in CAD technology to create and save individual digital patterns for our clients, which MTM allows for. That is essentially our program - a hybrid of bespoke and MTM. Tons of customizations, 30+ measurements, CAD patterns, and MTM consistency. This is then coupled with a face-to-face experience with a certified Style Consultant in one of our showrooms, a European country of origin for both the cloth and the cut & sew, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. And all of this at a price that is incredibly aggressive when compared to other custom programs, made in Europe, using the same name brand cloth we sell. Still not sure? Please contact us and we'll happily explain further. We understand that for true suit connoisseur this is a very important question. We want you to know exactly what you get when you buy from us. We strive for total transparency. Read more here.
I'm not familiar with all of the terminology. Do you have a glossary of definitions?
Of course! Find it here.
