Style is a personal choice and that’s why only a bespoke suit will do for those gentlemen who have their own concept of style. Our finest handmade suits are created under the label, “ANDREW KEMP BESPOKE”. “Bespoke” means to “speak for” something, in this case, your own personal handmade suit that fits you perfectly in a cloth of your choosing.
- First Appointment – Andrew will personally measure you, and you will discuss your style preferences and select the finer detail options. Details you are able to choose from include: lapels (width and style – notch, peak or shawl), vents (none, one or two), buttons (front of suit and sleeves), canvassing, lining (full, half or unlined), shoulders, pockets (internal and external), pinstitching, closure (single or double breasted) and cuffs.
- Calico Fitting – The suits are created off a calico pattern that is cut by experienced artisans based off precise measurements personally taken by Andrew during the consulting process. The toile – suit template – is tried on approximately 10 days after your first appointment. Any changes to the patern are made here. It is only after this point that we cut the fabric.
- First Fitting – Once the fit of the pattern is confirmed, the suit is then made to the most exacting standards with full canvas construction, hand-sewn button holes and contemporary styling; finally finished off using quality trimmings from England and Italy. It takes a minimum of 55 hours for our tailors to make your suit by hand. 6 weeks after your initial consultation, the full suit is ready to be tried on. Any final alterations are pinned up at this point and done in house.
- Final Fitting – At this point your suit is ready to collect. We now have your pattern and any further suits can be made without the interim stages.

Starting from $2195 our bespoke suits are the only choice for those gentlemen who are particular about what they wear, those that require longer or shorter fitting suits or those that have a special occasion to attend. Please keep in mind that a suit of this quality and painstaking detail is handcrafted and takes time to create; an Andrew Kemp Bespoke suit takes 6-8 weeks from placement of order to completion.
