BESPOKE

We pride ourselves in two core offerings.

Our Bespoke service offers our customers a completely personal experience. If you are looking for something special with an unrivaled fit, just for you - this is the route you should take. First you will need to be fitted, this can take place at home using our virtual tailor, or one of our expert tailors can take your measurements for you in our luxurious shop, or we can come to you. You will then need to customise every detail, from the style of the collar on a shirt, to the linings of a suit and even the sole colour on your sneakers. Once our tailors have guided you through the options, we get to work on creating your garment in our factory and it will be ready for your first fitting 3-4 weeks later.

Ready to Wear

Handmade Suits.

Secondly we offer our ‘Ready to Wear’ range consisting of suits, chinos, shoes, sneakers, polo shirts and jeans, all housed on the Dooley & Rostron website. Our users are simply able to select their fit and we will then get to work hand crafting the order, ready to be sent out within 3-4 weeks.
