Discover the difference, and why it should matter to you
The best a man can get. A bespoke suit is cut from a custom pattern designed specifically for your unique body shape resulting in an unparalleled fit and drape.
Made-to-measure suits still give you the freedom to select all the design options, but the pattern with which the fabric for the suit is cut from is a pre-existing stock size.
Suiting canvas is the third layer of material that lives between a jacket’s fabric (outside layer) and its lining (inside layer). There are three “styles” of canvas that exist on the market today: Full Canvas, Fused Canvas, and Half Canvas.
The ultimate in luxury, Henry A. Davidsen’s Purple Label garments represent the world of traditional custom, or “bespoke,” tailoring. The term “bespoke” comes from a time when a bolt of fabric in a tailor shop had “been spoken for” by an individual client. Our Purple Label garments adhere to traditional construction techniques, made completely by hand, which is rarely found in the market today. For the gentleman who truly understands the investment in a suit, and looks at handmade clothing as wearable art, we are able to offer this extraordinary experience.
With an intermediary try-on fitting stage and a custom pattern created exclusively for you and kept on file for easy re-ordering, the fit and feel are unparalleled.
Our Purple Label suits, coats, and trousers are crafted with pride in the United States.
Prices range from $3700 – $6000+, dependent on fabric.
