Fix up, look sharp: one lucky reader will win a two-piece suit worth £3,000 made bespoke by Oliver Brown’s master tailor…
One lucky reader will win a two-piece bespoke suit worth £3,000, created by Juan Carlos, Oliver Brown’s third-generation master tailor. The winner will be welcomed to the Oliver Brown tailoring house on Lower Sloane Street to experience the process of their idea being translated from measurements to pattern paper, through a series of skilful handiwork and in-store fittings to a finished garment. The bespoke suit will receive over sixty hours of handwork.
With Carlos’ unparalleled knowledge of cut, construction and cloth, he will ensure a personal and expert touch. The pattern will be drafted by hand and constructed using age-old tailoring techniques, resulting in an impeccable fit, precision and a clean-cut finish. In fact, Carlos will cut the pattern with the shears of his great grandfather who first brought them to London many years ago, when he embarked on his six year apprenticeship at Kilgour on Savile Row.
Oliver Brown is known for, but not restricted by, their house style – because in the world of bespoke, there is no such thing as a ‘default setting’. Each piece is subtly dramatic, perfectly elegant, and impeccably tailored.
A myriad of cutters, coat makers, trouser makers and finishers will take part in crafting the bespoke suit. A passion for tailoring, an eye for detail, and an understanding of cloth and cut underpins everything that the Oliver Brown Bespoke team do.
