Lead Times

Our lead times are focused around getting you the highest quality garments possible, and many of our suits require 50+ hrs of construction.

The bespoke process has been honed for hundreds of years and King & Allen are proud to continue this tradition, while also innovating new techniques and making it accessible to all.

We strongly advise our wedding clients to come and see us as soon as possible – even if there are many months until the wedding. With so many other aspects of the day to organise, it is recommended that you get the suit underway to leave time for other tasks closer to the day.

Need it Quick? We offer an Express Service that completes your suit in just 6 weeks for a small additional fee. Contact us for more info.

Journey Overview

After your initial consultation, when your measurements have been taken and your body figurations have been noted, an individual pattern is cut.

The cloth and trimmings that go into the suit are then set aside (said to be ‘bespoken for’), and the team of craftsmen and women begin the 50+ hours of work that go into the creation of your suit.

The next stage of the process is the first fitting – either a basted suit or a finished garment depending on your choice of construction method. Fittings are very much a collaboration between tailor and client. Your feedback about the look and feel of the suit is taken on board and your tailoring consultant will make their own suggestions as to how the suit can be improved.

Our tailors will then take the suit away and continue working on it, in time for your next fitting. In accordance with King & Allen’s fit guarantee, the suit is only considered complete when both tailor and client are entirely satisfied.
