There are 221 stages in making a bespoke men's suit jacket, and it can take 22 hours to make a complete the entire suit. It is this devotion to craftsmanship that separates the quality of a made-to-measure suit created by a Savile Row or luxury Italian tailor, from an off-the-peg tailoring factory in Eastern Europe or Asia.
