Whether it’s business or pleasure, you can’t go wrong with a made-to-measure suit. Here’s how we do it:

Step 1: The Appointment

Having an appointment ensures we can take all the time we need, because having a suit made shouldn’t be stressful. 

You can book an appointment at our shop in Amsterdam at the bottom of this page.

Step 2: The Fabric

A custom-made suit, jacket, or pair of trousers deserves the best fabric. Loking for a formal, blue suit or a casual, linen suit? With a collection of over 5.000 fabrics, we’re sure we’ll find the right material, colour, pattern, and weight for you. At PAKKEND Amsterdam, we only work with the best mills from all over Europe.

Step 3: The Style

Carve out your personal style. A beautiful fabric should be complemented by the right details. You get to choose from a wide range of linings, buttons, stitching, and felt.  

A suit shouldn’t be stiff. All our made-to-measure suits and jackets are half-canvassed creating a more supple fit with the right amount of structure. You could even take it one step further and go full canvas. Feel like loosening up? Try our unconstructed jacketing. Ask our personal tailors what’s right for you.

Step 4: The Measurements

The meat of the matter in made-to-measure: getting the fit just right for you. Our personal tailors will ensure your perfect fit. Do you prefer a slimmer or fuller cut? We love to know your preferences: it’s a dialogue, after all. We can adjust our patterns on over fifty points. To top it off: your measurements will be saved, making future orders that much easier. 

Step 5: The Final Adjustments

You’ve patiently waited five weeks and you just heard from us that your suit is in. Make an appointment for a second fitting. Perfection takes time, and sometimes your suit will need some minor refinements—these will be added to your personal measurements. Your suit will be ready for pick-up in a few days.
