Or, with the relentless winter commuting, you want an overcoat to keep out the chill. Whatever your requirements, we can personally reassure you that at Walters we are on hand to serve, and personally tailor the garments that you are in need of.
What does Personal tailoring mean for you?
At Walters we believe that comfort and appearance are vital when it comes to having a garment that has been specifically made to fit you. We can create any garment to fit your physical and aesthetic needs, and will go above and beyond to ensure that you are truly happy with your final piece.
We have around 3000 high quality cloths, covering cottons and linens to choose from, and can offer Best of British and Irish Tweeds for those timeless pieces. Whether you are after a traditional suit or a more informal lounge suit, which range from 7 ½ oz to 20 oz weight, we have all bases covered and we know you will not be disappointed.
We take great pride in the fact that all our wool is milled here in British mills, such as Harrisons which was established in the 1800’s, Porter and Harding, Smith Woollens, Dugdale, W Bill, H. Lesser, all of which span a few centuries worth of milling experience between them. With their knowledge of great British millinery, and our expertise in personal tailoring, we feel this can only enhance your confidence in having your garment tailored with us here, at Walters.
What does the process look like, step by step?
The initial consultation will be made with our specialist, Tom, who has over 10 years of experience, including time in London’s West End, meaning he has a wealth of experience and knowledge to best guide and direct you. At this appointment he will discuss all your wants and needs such as the type of cloth or styling you prefer. You will also be measured at this appointment to ensure we get the correct fit.
There will be a 6-8 week lead time following this, after which we will invite you to come to Walters, to try on your beautiful new garment, specifically tailored for your fit, and to ensure you are fully happy with your final piece and that it meets your expectations!
