Fabrics and Pricing from Fittall.


The largest influence on pricing is the price of the fabric which in turn is determined by the quality of the thread type and it's thread count, and manufacturing processes while mostly the Cut, Make and Trim are standard prices (dependent on styling)  including custom made shirts.


Bespoke Tailoring Made to Measure All about us


Generally fabric prices are as follows;

Thread type; i.e. Lambs wool, cashmere, silk, etc.

Thread count;

110-180 etc.


Therefore a two piece suit with a poor quality fabric manufactured in some obscure mill somewhere, might not cost as much as a two piece suit with a good quality fabric manufactured in the English Midlands or Italy because of the points as mentioned above.

But the pricing for Cut, Make and Trim will not differ much since the same amount of handling will apply, but this only applies to made to measure and as for bespoke that is entirely different.
