As you look through the pages of my catalogue you will find the most common clothing of men of the lower or middle class who lived in the period from 1810 to 1840. There are subtle differences in the clothing that will stand out and identify the class and time period that you are portraying.
I also offer clothing kits. Clothing kits contain material specifically ordered by the customer for its color, weight and type-(wool/linen etc.) These pieces are then precut by me based upon a pattern of the customer's choice, and then sent to the customer. The customer then sews the kit according to the pattern instructions.
Why Should You Go The Custom Tailor Route
Simple custom tailoring is a selection of cloth and patterns so that you can have an outfit that is not off the rack. As always, the fit of the garment and the selection of style and materials are the key advantages of custom tailoring.
We use more than the run of the mill woolens. The resulting garment is one whose wear, use and quality will never go out of style.
About My Garments
All of my garments are machine sewn inside with all of the outside, visible stitching being done by hand. A complete hand sewn garment can be purchased, if that is what the customer wants, only it will cost more in terms of money. The best way to contact me is by e-mail and reference my company name. (Custom Vestments Ltd.) I will get back to you soon. We can set up a time to meet ( perhaps at a living history event we will both be attending.) If the distance is too great, we can talk over the phone and work out the details. After we have our conversation I will work up the pattern, If we are geographically close, we can meet and fit the garment in person. If not, we have two choices: I can finish the garment, or baste it and send it to the customer for a trial fitting. It can then be returned back to me for finishing. At either point after the
initial meeting I will inform the customer how many jobs are in front of
theirs and what the expected delivery time is for their garment.
