How It Works: Consultation

At Tom James, We Come to You with Fine Clothing

Your custom clothing should reflect your personal style, from the fit, to the fabric, to the details.

To help define your style, we meet with you, on the luxury of your own schedule, in your home or office. We take the time to learn and understand:

  • What do you do?
  • Who do you see?
  • What professional clothing do you already own?

Our goal? To learn more about you so we can better advise you on clothing that will make an impact and help define your style.

How It Works: Selection

We help you choose from the finest cloths in the world


Choose from the finest wool, cashmere, linen, cotton, seersucker, bamboo and silk. Drawing on the vast expertise of our 170+ year old woolen company, Holland and Sherry, we design, spin and weave many of our fabrics in our own mill.

You work hard. And so do our fabrics! Don't be surprised if your custom Tom James clothing lasts longer than most garments in your closet.


Details like functional button holes, ticket pockets, contrasting stitching or special linings are all features that not only make your suit a statement, but also help it function in a way that serves you best.

How It Works: Measurement

Our custom suits and shirts are made for you

  • We measure you - a full 31 measurements when you order a suit and shirt.
  • We take photos of your posture to show our tailors.
  • We use an incline device to see the slope of your shoulders.
  • We even know how to accommodate for the size of your watch!

If you measure and stand the same way as the masses, a mass-produced garment could work for you.

But a custom garment is designed and tailored to your exact specifications. When you put it on, you can tell the difference!

How It Works: Tailoring

Over 80% of our custom clothing is Made in the USA

We make more custom clothing than anyone! We are America's experts, since 1966.

What actually goes into making your suit? It's more than a pattern. More than great fabric or experienced tailors.

It's what hides behind the lining that makes a suit truly great.

It begins when our Tom James master tailors take your measurements and photos to create a pattern that is solely and exclusively yours.

Then we tailor your clothing using superior materials...ageless processes. No shortcuts. And since your clothing is tailored in facilities that we own, you are assured a garment that fits and feels great!

How It Works: Fitting

We alter as needed to insure the proper fit

When our shops are done crafting your garments, they are shipped to your Tom James clothier, who will meet with you for a final fitting.

You will try on the garments and the clothier will fit them exactly to your and our expectations.

And since We Come to You, it's with the luxury of your time. No trips. Just convenience.
