Whether you’ve been donning your best suit to work from home or saving your finest jacket for those all-important Zoom meetings, the role of tailoring in our lives has changed a little of late. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t still have an important place in your wardrobe. Far from being just about jackets, waistcoats and trousers, the rise and rise of casual tailoring means there are all manner of wardrobe essentials you can now order made-to-measure – and Bookster is the tailor to call on.
Established in 2007, the English tailor was a pioneer in online custom tailoring, making a splash with its debut product – the Bookster Original Made-to-Order Tweed Hacking Jacket. The style is still available today and the brand hasn’t looked back since, now offering a huge range of field wear, coats, gilets and traditional suiting in an array of cloths spanning classic tweed to linen, cotton and wool.
But for those more accustomed to the lengthy process of a Savile Row bespoke tailoring experience, achieving the same perfect fit online may seem practically impossible. Not so thanks to Bookster’s thoughtful and comprehensive ordering process. Simply select your garment, customise with your choice of fabric, lining and buttons and fill out the simple online form with your measurements to ensure your new garment fits perfectly. You can even monogram your item and select your desired pocket placement, lapels, cuffs, vents, stitching colour, elbow patches, shoulders, hems, waistband and dozens of other details so each piece is as unique and adapted to your preferences as anything the most traditional tailoring brands have to offer. All without having to leave your own home.
Of course, should you have questions, Bookster’s team is always on hand to help and, while 90% of customer order online, Bookster’s tailors are available for one-to-one appointments at the brand’s Gloucestershire showroom. And, with Bookster offering everything from vintage 1940s style suits to contemporary slim cuts, you might just need their help whittling your options down.
Sound like your kind of tailor? We’ve teamed up with Bookster to offer one lucky winner £1,000 to spend on custom tailoring, to be ordered either online using Bookster’s one to one personal service or with a face to face fitting at its showroom. To enter simply fill out the form below by 10 November 2020. Good luck!
