Made to Measure

“Be unique. Be Made to Measure.”

An excellent fit, made with luxurious fabrics and uniquely finished to your own specification is what you can expect from investing in a made to measure suit, jacket, overcoat or pair of trousers from Donalds Menswear.

Get That Perfect Fit

The made to measure process begins with the choosing of the “Block” that best achieves your desired fit or cut of suit or jacket.

Next comes the choice of cloth…

Our Cloth Brands

From the curated collection by our Made to Measure supplier, and the many cloth bunches available from Harrisons of Edinburgh and Lear, Browne and Dunsford (local to us) in Exeter, we are able to offer a wide range of fabric designs and weights from some of the finest British and European cloth mills and lining manufacturers.

Then it’s time to choose the style and construction of your jacket:

Style & Construction

Jacket Styles

All of these styles are also available as a Blazer (Patch pocket and Blazer buttons) or Dresswear (Satin lapels, pockets and buttons).

Jacket Construction

Choose from the Half Canvas with Padded Lapel, or the Floating Chest Piece interlining options.

And decide on all the details and little extras that will make your made to measure purchase unique to you:


The next stage is when you will have your measurements taken, and any adjustments noted (some persons have one shoulder lower than the other for example) that will give that optimal fit for you. The completion of all the above usually takes approximately one hour.

It is then time to pay a 50% deposit and your order will be sent off to the tailoring company, and fabrics/linings from external mills/merchants will be requested.

Around five to six weeks later your garment(s) will arrive, ready for you to come in for a final fitting.

Any last little adjustments will be carried out on the premises usually within 24 hours, and following payment of the outstanding balance your new made to measure outfit will be ready to take home with you.
