Chris Kerr: London's Premier Bespoke Suit Maker
Written by the Dignified Devil Image provided
The Industrial Revolution made many technological miracles possible, sadly, the price we paid was the loss of truly custom products. Custom has become a term of marketing art, a clever sleight-of-hand to convince shoppers an item is unique to justify higher prices. In suiting, custom is confused with the availability of a few distinguishing options. The word for a truly custom suit is bespoke, and there are few authentic bespoke tailors. Enter Chris Kerr, the heir to a dignified family of high-end tailoring. Mr. Kerr, a tailor in the strictest Saville Row tradition, founded his shop outside the stuffy conventions of Saville Row to a more contemporary Soho locale.
Each suit Mr. Kerr constructs begins as an idea and a sketch. There are no stock patterns, no standard cuts, and no racks to browse. From paper pattern to final issue, each suit is collaboration between man and tailor, a unique expression of style, attitude, and dignity. While bespoke suiting necessitates a higher price point than its off-the-rack inferiors, Mr. Kerr’s services are available at very reasonable rates, giving you the opportunity to purchase a suit from the hands of a man who has crafted garments for the likes of Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks, and Sir Michael Caine.Two-piece suits, three-piece suits, trousers, and made to measure suits available.
