Custom Menswear at Claymore Shop
Clothing is very personal. Choosing what to wear is an opportunity for you to show the world who you are. If you’ve already made the choice to look your best in classical tailoring, with a nice crisp dress shirt and a well-fitting suit, why not go the extra mile and select an ensemble that you had a hand in designing?
Custom suiting and shirting are just that. They provide you with an opportunity to elevate your style and create something that you will want to wear time and time again. Why? Because the most expensive suits and shirts in your closet are the ones that you never wear.
We have been offering custom menswear for decades and can guide you through the process. Our initial consultation with you will focus on understanding what you hope to achieve with your garment. Do you have a special event? What is your style? Do you have any particular garments from the past that you like and want to re-create?
Once we know what you are looking for, it’s time to choose the cloth and cut. We have thousands of fabrics from the finest mills in the world. From classic woolens to beautiful silks, cashmeres, cottons and blends. Choices are available for all seasons or for a perfect match for hot and humid summers or frigid and icy winters.
Now that you have a fabric that suits your garment, it’s time to discuss the cut. Are you looking for a modern, slimmer silhouette, or more of a traditional, fuller cut that will stand the test of time?
We have hundreds of combinations of lapels, collars, buttons, linings, and pockets. We are here to help guide you through the process of selecting the perfect combination of details that will bring about your unique look.
To ensure that your garments fit you perfectly, we take a series of detailed measurements and keep them on file so we can continue to work with you on future pieces even if your physique changes over time.
You’ll also have several options for shirt and suit makers, to ensure that you find something that fits your budget. We carry some of the finest custom brands in the business, such as Samuelsohn, Oxxford Clothes, Empire, Ralph Lauren and our own Claymore Shop label made in the United States for suiting, and Hamilton, Measure Up, 100 Hands and Gitman Brothers for custom shirts.
Fine menswear is a way of life that we experience and share with our customers. In today’s world, if you want to stand out, looking your best is a great way to start. Please call to schedule a consultation. We will guide you on your custom journey, alongside you as your partner in style. Remember, the summer wedding season is just about to kick off, so the sooner, the better.
