Paris fashion house Cerruti 1881 has launched a global made-to-measure service. Available through Cerruti 1881 flagship stores and select retailers worldwide, the made-to-measure initiative comprises suits, tuxedos, waistcoats, jackets, trousers, and overcoats.

Clients may select from fabrics woven in Biella, Italy exclusively by Lanificio Fratelli Cerruti. The luxury fabrics include Vicuña, 13 Micron, Suri Alpaca, 100 percent cashmere, wool/silk, and super 150’s wool. The garments will be hand tailored in Italy and comprise more than 160 steps and over 8 hours of handcraft construction.

The tailoring experience allows clients to choose from a vast variety of styles, fabrics, and accessories to create a perfectly fitted and personalized garment. Delivery time averages 8-10 weeks. Clients will also enjoy a private appointment at their home or office with a specialized tailor.

“The made-to-measure experience continues Cerruti 1881’s commitment to quality service and flexibility for our customers,” said the company in a statement. “This program allows our clients a top tailoring experience and a garment that perfectly fits both their shape and style.”
