In addition to our exceptional Made-to-Measure clothing program, Paul Stuart offers true custom clothing, constructed completely by hand in our workroom in New York. First, an individual paper pattern is made for each client. After the client's initial measurements are taken, the process requires three or more fittings to ensure the perfect fit. In addition to the exclusive styling options and details available, the client has an extensive library from which to choose his suiting, jacketing, and trouser fabrics.
The Paul Stuart Custom silhouette, or "house style," is based on an iconic jacket design invented over eighty years ago on Savile Row by the personal tailor to the Duke of Windsor. The cut is defined by lightly padded shoulders, high armholes, a slightly generous sleeve at the bicep, draped chest and blade, and definition at the waist. Softly constructed for ease of movement, the overall effect was to provide a masculine, athletic appearance.
These key elements are apparent in our house style, which is an updated version of this iconic and timeless design sensibility. We have, however, added some modern touches to give it a more current look. We've raised the button stance and gorge, reduced the shoulder width, and reduced the amount of fullness in the chest and blade. This affords the coat a leaner, more fitted appearance. Moreover, the proprietary design of the armhole along with the shoulder and chest construction give the wearer ease and comfort of movement. This is a benefit rarely associated with slimmer fitted silhouettes, which makes our new house cut a truly innovative jacket design.
