Half Hand Made
Our most popular service by far, the half handmade bespoke option is the closest thing to the traditional full handmade offering. Finished by hand, all the details of the handmade bespoke aesthetics are shown off here. With the same pattern making as the full handmade offering, a half handmade suit is cut straight of the bench, with all your bodily distinctions and unique posturing marked when drafting your bespoke pattern.
Still constructed with a full piece of horsehair canvas, we use technical German machines designed to copy the crafty handwork of a veteran artesian. All button holes are finished by hand, including the lapel hole, armhole, sleeves hem, shoulder, sleeve liner, vents, collar and the finer hidden details.
Allow approx. 4 weeks for delivery for the half hand experience. Suits start at $1,800 and shirts $340 (prices ex. GST)
Full Hand Made
Crafted entirely by hand, this service is the absolute pinnacle of the ZIMMA TAILORS experience – completely cut from the bench free of any machine assistance. A draft of your individual pattern is made allowing all your bodily nuances and postures to be incorporated. The drawn pattern is the flat lay of your body with all the allowances and considerations ready to be chalked onto cloth.
Once the cloth is cut, the pattern is sewn together using frangible cotton, this process is called basting. Only used by traditional bespoke tailors, the purpose allows for the first fit to become an unscathed test fitting. After the baste fit is confirmed, the garment is taken apart and finished completely by hand, stitch by stitch.
Construction of your garment unfolds over 6-8 weeks. Suits start at $4,000 and shirts from $680 (prices ex. GST)
