What is a Bespoke Suit and how is it different from Made-to-measure?


Made-to-measure suits are suits that are simply stitched to your measurements, as the name suggests. Bespoke suits are also made-to-measure but they are more sculpted and customised. The shoulder padding is manipulated by hand to sculpt around your shoulders to give you a desired look, the canvas is made of horse-hair and hand-tacked to give you a rolled-effect along with a generous lapel belly. A bespoke suit has many hand-made elements but one of the tell tale differences of a Bespoke Suit from a made-to-measure is a hand-basted fitting service, where a hand-tacked suit is draped on you to keep you in the loop for the final desired result. To know more about the luxurious hand-made techniques of Bespoke suitings, read our blog




What is a must-have classic fabric to get in a suit?


A Terry-wool suit is an absolute must-have in any gentlemen's closet. It is. long-lasting with great feel and texture and has been loved accross generations. We have Bespoke Terry wool suits starting at Rs.10,000




What is the fabric like in the Rs.8300 range?


The Rs.8300 range fabric is a Polyester, Cotton and Rayon Mix. It is light-weight and great for summers. The cotton makes it summer-friendly while the Polyester gives it its smoothness. The Rayon gives it a matt look in the sun with a subtle shine during evening events. We have got great reviews for this suiting fabric, but some customers above the age of 45 have told us they find it thin. I you are looking for an old-school look it is better to opt in for a woolen suit or a suit in Terry wool and Milano. If you are looking for a youthful business-casual look this is a great choice.

What is Milano Fabric?


Milano or Milanese fabric is made front 2 sets of yarn knitted diagonally. This gives the fabric a very slight stretch, which isn't as much as you may find in T-shirts and sweaters.The face of the fabric has a vertical rib look to it and the back has a diagnonal knit structure. Milano is a sophisticated fabric which is light-weight, drapey and with a smooth texture. a Milano suit really drapes around your body-type giving a slimming effect. We highly recommend it.

Is a L'indien Suit Handmade?


L'indien suits follow old couture practices with more hand-made elements than what is found in regular made-to-measure. The craft is derived from Italy and France, but L'indien has it's own signature styles. The handmade elements one can find in a L'indien suit are:

1) Hand-basted fitting
This traditional fitting process is where the hand-made elements of our suit begins. We first take your measurements and then cut all the pieces to your size and hold them together with partial stitches and hand-tacks. Then the user is made to wear an un-finished suit and we hand-bast the suit onto yout body-frame so as to elaborately capture the details of your body shape and your preferred fit, details that are usually missed when we are just taking your measurements. The garment is draped on you, all problem areas are noted and then tucked into seams during the final stitching process

2. The Lapel Canvas
The canvas is handtacked in patterns so as to achieve a sophisticated curved roll. This is a hand-done process that is really worth the effort for the finished look. This gives memory to the canvas and finished look to the lapel
3. Pick-Stitching The edge of the lapel is hand-tacked with what is called a "pick-stitch". Many companies do this with a machine, we do this by hand. The beauty of a bespoke suit is thoughful and organic design. Anytime you notice the pick stitching to be too neat, it isn't hand-made for you. We pride ourselves in a completely organic pick-stitch that isn't too perfect but is made with respect. You can also find the pick stitching on your sleeves 4. The Trouser Seams Are Hand-Hemmed
A clean look is achieved on your tailored trousers with hand-hemmed finishes and nothing less 5. The Sleeve Attatchement or the Arm Hole
The armhole is hand-sewn to add freedom of movement. This feature is found in a select few suiting studios. 6. Surgeon-Cuffs A bespoke suit ideally must have a surgeon cuff. This is a type of a cuff on the suit that allows you to roll-up your sleeves. However a suit cannot be altered once this feature is added

All in all there are many hand-made elements to a L'indien Bespoke suit. Follow the blog to know more!
