Question and Answers from
Are your suits really custom or just semi-custom?
At NELSON WADE, our custom garments are custom made from hand designed patterns. Each and every client receives an extensive measurement profile and when we are with you for a private fitting, we will also take digital photographs from the neck down for posture, shoulder slope, etc. These measurements, photos ensure that our tailors then make an accurate and detailed unique custom pattern to fit your body.
No two patterns are a like!
How long does it take to get my custom suit or custom shirt made and delivered?
The turn-around time for a custom suit from NELSON WADE will depend upon your chosen fabric. If we need to import unique fabric that we do not currently have in stock from England or Italy, it can add 2-7 days ( depending upon customs) to the time of your initial order.
But, generally most custom suit orders arrive 3 to 5 weeks from the time of your initial order. If need be, our tailors can make your suit and be finished in 10 days (emergencies only and depending time of year). Custom shirts arrive in two to three weeks. Rush orders on shirts ensure a 10 day delivery.
Can you come to me for a private fitting?
At NELSON WADE, we are available to measure you and have you select fabrics in your home or office, am or pm. We realize that time is money so we extend this service and we are available every day of the week. We do require an 2 week ahead booking of the appointment and request a deposit. The deposit will put towards your and future purchases at the time of the private fitting. Contact us for further information.
When you come to visit me for a private fitting, will I need to take off my clothes to be measure?
No not at all! Although, we do recommend taking off bulky shirts, sweatshirts or bulky trousers.
Yes. We have many clients that have come across some unique fabric that they like and would like to have a custom garment made from it. Our process is the same except but the delivery time is about one week extra.
I have a suit, skirt, trousers that fits me perfectly. Can you copy it?
Yes, absolutely! We will borrow the garment and provide it to our tailors as pattern. Your garment will take a few extra days to deliver but those of you who have that favorite fitting skirt, suit or trousers know that it is worth the wait.
