Even if the fit business is on the decline, the market for made-to-measure apparel is more dynamic than ever. If wearing a 3-piece suit has become rare in some professions, it remains the pinnacle of masculine elegance.
Whether you have to wear a tailored suit for a special occasion like a wedding, or simply want to be classy, follow the guide!
We have hand-picked 3 big names for you to custom-make your suit.
Cifonelli – The Art of Big Measure
If Lorenzo and Massimo Sivonelli are now torn between Paris and London boutiques, the Rue de Marbeuf workshop remains a favorite address for lovers of bespoke suits.
From this selected atelier only one hundred costumes per year come out. Through the ages, the greatest have passed through Cifonelli’s doors: Lino Ventura, Josephine Baker, Marcello Mastroianni, Cary Grant, Charlton Heston, Fred Astaire, and the French president himself, François Mitterrand (whose collection of Sifonelli suits were auctioned off at Drouet).
Encouraged by their global community, the house is now also turning to its chic ready-to-wear line. Created with full respect for Maison traditions and designed personally by Massimo and Lorenzo, the RTW collection is an outlet for their exciting creative ideas – crafted in our exclusive luxury image.

They are part of elite master tailors: since 1969 Camps de Luca has been making made-to-measure suits for men in the tradition of its founders, Joseph Camps and Mario de Luca.
Mario De Luca moved to France after World War II and opened his own studio in Paris.
Camps de Luca, a living heritage company, works every day to perpetuate the art of made-to-measure in the service of masculine elegance.
It takes at least 80 hours and 5 people to make a costume in the workshop, and the solidarity between different talents and knowledge is what distinguishes the quality. Each of the steps requires very special attention and expertise.
