At Hampton's, we offer full-service custom clothing through our tailored clothing partners. Fully bespoke clothing is available through Ravazzolo and Scabal, as well as our tailor nearby. Made to measure options are available through Ravazzolo, Scabal, and Sartorio Napoli. All of these companies offer extensive fabric selections, excellent products, and seemingly endless options, but each is unique in its own offerings.
A question we hear frequently is "what's the difference in bespoke and made-to-measure?" We can only attribute this to a frequent incorrect use of both terms by some of our competitors. The main differences come in the production style of garments; bespoke garments require more measurements, as patterns for cutting are made specifically for you based off of these measurements, while made-to-measure garments use an existing pattern and alter the measurements from that. As you can imagine, the fit of a bespoke piece will be more precise and feel as if it was tailored to your body, because it was. This is not to say that made-to-measure is a bad option, though! We can generally fit most anyone extremely well with a made-to-measure suit, and being that the patterns already exist, it's a great way to keep the costs down in comparison to bespoke.
As far as differences between the brands go, we can go more into depth in the store, but for the basics:
Your Ravazzolo suit follows your shapes, indulges who you are, and enhances the man in you.
With Ravazzolo you can make your suit more personal than ever.
Fabrics, buttons, buttonholes, linings follow your desires, the tastes of what are you made of, the dreams that you have.
More than 1.000 colours of selected fabrics; valuable buttons of mother of pearl, horn, corozo or metal; almost 200 kinds of linings in jacquard or silk among which you can choose, are interwoven among refined matches of weft and warp. The inspiration and the good taste are everything and they distinguish you from the others.
Among all the hand processes the most required there are the handmade buttonholes, the tailoring collar sewn by a cross-stitch, handmade stitching on the lapel, stitching, loop for flower under the buttonhole, on the backside of the lapel. All these details are synonyms of elegance, tailoring craft and are recognizable as such by the most attentive appreciators of the modern Tailoring, business men who are able to appreciate and have the need to dress a bespoke suit.
