Moss Bespoke builds on 160 years of experience with the availability of a simple, made-to-measure and made-to-order service, based around customisation. Aimed at a new, modern generation of suit buyers the process is as simple as 1-2-3 and the product represents true value for money - premium, personalised product at off the peg prices.

1 – Customise your cut: Jackets come in one, two and three button options with either centre or side vents, or none at all.  Lapels are offered notch or peak styles, which can be as narrow or deep as you choose.  Similarly, pockets can be straight or slanted for a more slim line finish and trousers come either flat front or with pleats, sporting a plain finish or turn-ups – the choice is yours!

2 – Choose your cloth:  The range is broad with a variety of cloths separated into three simple collections – Everyday, Fine and Luxury.  There are of course the traditional greys, navies and blacks, but the collection also features seasonal colours such as teal green and blue.   Lighter weight options in linen and mohair are also available and are perfect for summer days and nights.

Choosing a lining is key to really making the suit your own and can be a way of expressing creativity without feeling flash.  Many clients opt for simple yet striking iridescent tones, whilst others choose interesting patterns such as polka dots and paisleys.

3 – Create your suit:  Here’s where the fun starts; choosing all the little details that are unique to your suit.  To the exterior - buttons come in horn, shell or covered varieties – with the option of working button or kissing cuffs.  Internal detailing options include contrasting cloth jets on welted pockets, v-flaps and coloured saddle stitching.  Moreover, ensure you never lose your jacket by opting to have your inside pocket monogrammed with your initials or nickname – a service also popular amongst wedding parties to commemorate their special day.  

Catering for all those individual requirements, all suits can be turned into three-piece options by adding a waistcoat or extra trousers, which is particularly useful for those with a fuller figure.  Although this may sound overwhelming with so many options to choose from, expert staff are on hand to help guide you through the process and make sure you look your best.

The Princesshay store in Exeter are hosting a bespoke shopping event on  18th November, between 5 - 7pm where you will be able to order Luxury bespoke suits from £295 (save £200).  For more information or to make an appointment please call the store on 01392 270520.
