Bespoke cutting is an art and the cutters eye is all important. We cut our clothes to create a harmonious and flattering line, allowing for all the small imperfections of the gentleman's form. Following the guidelines set by the Savile Row Bespoke Association, garments are made either on site or within a hundred yard radius of Savile Row. There must be a minimum of 2000 cloth options available to a customer in addition to specifics such as jacket foreparts must be entirely hand canvassed, buttonholes hand-sewn, sleeves attached and linings felled by hand.
At Norton & Sons our tailors assemble each garment without compromise; thousands of hand stitches join the cloth to its wool canvas, haircloth, linen and cotton interlinings; the tailor works shape into the cloth to create contours in the garment; linings, edges and button holes are always finished by hand.
Our tailoring team is comprised of the finest coat-makers, trouser-makers, vest-makers, alteration tailors, finishing tailors and pressers, trained in their craft here on Savile Row. The making of a single suit can involve up to eleven craftsmen, and up to 80 hours of work.
Norton & Sons are proud to be a member of the Savile Row Bespoke Association.
