Women's Tailoring

You might be surprised to learn that not all tailors make suits for women. The tailoring industry has traditionally been very male-centric. The plurality of women's body shapes and the differences in construction methods have been cited as a reason for tailors not wanting to make female suits, with the added complexity being off-putting for a lot of businesses. At King & Allen, we've been making suits for women for over a decade and have honed and developed our offering.  We asked our female staff what they loved most about working for a bespoke tailors and what their favourite piece of tailoring is.
