Made to Measure


Narendra Kumar

Narendra Kumar's M2M ensures the finest suit with a perfect fitting. The range of options available to bedpoke customers includes the key decisions in terms of style and cloth, but also important but less obvious nuances like the 'cut' and finish the garment.

We hope the following information about our different made-to-measure services will be useful.

The range of options available to made-to-measure customers includes the key decisions in terms of style and cloth, but also important but less obvious nuances like the 'cut' and finish of the garment. Some of the matters considered are shown below:

  • Lapel: NK cut a high notch on the lapel which enhances the impression of length in the coat. The lapel is hand padded to roll softly from the collar to the first button
  • Collar: A bespoke collar is constructed from collar canvas, melton and the cloth used to make the garment. The materials are padded together by hand to shape the collar to the customer's neck
  • Shoulder & Sleeve Head: By constructing a small armhole, but a big sleeve, NK achieves the holy trinity of tailoring: comfort, style and fit
  • Chest: The chest is shaped through the use of two canvasses and domette to achieve proportion, the byword of bespoke tailoring. Thousands of tiny stitches hold the canvas in place, shaping the chest in the most flattering manner
  • Pockets: On a bespoke suit pockets are always jetted (jetting being the piping between the flap of the pocket and the main body on the coat) . This allows the pocket to be worn with the flap in or out. Pockets can be straight or slanted to the degree of customers choosing.
  • Cuffs & Buttons: NK suits have real or working button holes, sewn by hand by 'finishers' (a specialist tailor who fells the lining, sews on buttons and construct the button holes) The buttons themselves are usually are made of ram's horn and dyed to match the chosen material. They can also be covered in cloth from which the suit is made.

These are just a few considerations that will be discussed with your cutter at the outset. In all there are more than one hundred possible distinctions that can be provided into a NK suit. Our staff would be delighted to provide you with more advice and information.
