FIT

Garments are made for you!


The first thing I appreciate about Tom James; I love working with Rebecca, she always will give me sound advice and expertise when making recommendations on clothing pieces, she'll keep track of what I've been purchasing from her so when she makes recommendations she's making sure that what I'm buying might complement what I already own, she's making sure that I'm wearing styles that are fitting for my age and my clientele when they come in, making sure that I'm professional.

CONVENIENCE

On your time - your space.
Our clothiers meet with you.


As a busy professional who prefers not to shop and has difficulty finding clothes that fit, Tom James has been a lifesaver. (My clothier) meets with me on my time schedule in my own office and the clothes fit amazing as they are tailored specifically to me.

STYLE

Your style. Your preferences.


I get to pick out the linings, the buttons, the color of the button holes, all those details that you don’t really get to pick when you’re picking something off the rack... I get to have fun shopping with my friend and I get to do it at home, where I can be completely comfortable. I love working with Tom James and I know you will, too!

Utlizing Tom James I have cut back on the need to visit the malls and shop around for hours and hours. It's simple and easy; they have my measurements, my clothier sends me ideas...gives me direction on various fabrics and styles and I now have a whole closet of Tom James suits.

High-Fashion Fabrics

Created with women's style and comfort in mind.

When we re-launched our Women’s Custom Clothing line in 2020, we sourced a variety of fabrics specifically woven with a women’s style, sensibility, and shape in mind. Now in 2022, you can choose from lightweight, breathable solids with bold textures, or more traditional wools, silks and cashmeres to curate a wardrobe that is cohesive with your persona.

When you are able to pick the perfect cloth and have it made into a flawless garment, the possibilities grow beyond the outfit you find from a department store rack that just so happens to fit. Work with your clothier to create a capsule of complementary garments that work together to create multiple outfits. Get what you want, how you want it, and look your best every day.

Questions about Custom Clothing

The majority of our clothing is manufactured in our own factories. Our suits are produced in various locations, ensuring quality craftsmanship. Here is a list of our manufacturing facilities.

  • Oxxford Clothing - Chicago, Illinois, USA
  • English American Tailoring - Westminster, Maryland, USA
  • Individualized Shirts - Perth Amboy, New Jersey, USA
  • Measure Up Shirts - LaFayette, Tennessee, USA
  • Franklin Clothing - Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Coppley - Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
  • Tom James Chile - Santiago, Chile

At Tom James, we offer an extensive array of customization options for both shirts and suits. Tailor the fit, choose from premium fabrics, and select your preferred garment model. Customize the jacket with lapel shape, size, and button configurations. Express individuality with unique linings and buttons, and fine-tune details like buttonhole thread colors. Personalize trousers with belt loop preferences, cuffs, and pleats. For shirts, choose collar shapes, types, and unique details like contrasting elements and monograms. Our customization options ensure that each garment reflects your unique style, providing a personalized touch to your wardrobe.

Standard Monograms are complimentary on your first order. For subsequent orders, there is an additional charge of $15. For shirts at our Royal Classic make and above, standard monograms are included at no extra cost. Custom signature monograms and logo monograms are available for an additional cost.

Each item crafted in our factories undergoes a blind measurement process. Measurements are taken of finished pieces before knowing the intended measurements, ensuring a fair test. This meticulous approach allows us to maintain strict quality control, ensuring that all pieces fit within our tolerance allowances.

For coats and jackets, our tolerance allowances for key measurements are as follows:

  • Point To Point (-0.25, +0.375)
  • Coat Length (-0.25, + 0.5)
  • Sleeves (-0.25, +0.25)
  • Half Girth (-0.25, +0.375)

Similarly, for pants, our tolerance allowances for key measurements are as follows:

  • Waist (-0.5, 0)
  • Seat Skin/Finished (-1, 0)
  • Outseams (-0.5, +0.5)
  • Knee (-0.5, +0.5)
  • Bottom (-0.5, +0.5)

If you're not completely satisfied with your custom garments, we are committed to making it right. We offer alterations to address any concerns, and if needed, we will remake the garments until they meet your absolute satisfaction.

To truly appreciate what we offer, we recommend you start with a package that includes a custom jacket, bottom & shirt. Whether it’s a full suit, a sportcoat & trousers, or a jacket and skirt, wearing that with a custom shirt or blouse completes the look.

Depending on the make, our jackets are constructed with a half or full-length floating (not fused) horsehair canvas. This ensures that your jacket moves with you, lays better on your body, and lasts longer.

All of our jacket armholes, regardless of make, are hand-stitched to give more moveability and longevity and also include an extra layer of lining to protect your garment from perspiration.

Our trousers include a heel strap that protects the back of your cuff from damage.

Upon delivery, your clothier will provide tailored care instructions for each garment and fabric. Additionally, you can also check out our blog on preserving the elegance of your suit.

Custom - Custom suits are meticulously crafted with your unique measurements in mind. A tailor takes precise measurements, considering factors such as the slope of your shoulders and hips, as well as the length of your legs, to create a tailored pattern just for you.

Made-to-Measure - Made-to-measure suits start with a basic or standard pattern. A tailor then takes your measurements and adjusts the pattern to ensure a personalized fit.

Bespoke - Bespoke, a term derived from the British meaning 'spoken for,' represents the epitome of tailoring. These suits, adorned with over 1,000 hand stitches in the lapel alone, are meticulously fitted to hug the body. Bespoke suits are considered the pinnacle of the sartorial world, requiring no pressing for a flawless appearance.

Depending on the selected level of make, Tom James offers suits that can be made-to-measure, custom, or fully bespoke.
