Bespoke is a term that is used to describe an item that is commissioned for someone who has complete control over every small detail of that item right from the way it is crafted to its finest details. Over the years, the term has become synonymous with not only the best suit tailors in London but every tailoring shop around the world offering custom-made garments with superior craftsmanship and perfection.
However, this is knowledge that is not common amongst the good tailors. Even some of the best suit tailors do not know that its essence lies in Savile Row - London, the holy grail of customised suits and specialised tailoring, home of some of the best tailored suits, tuxedo suits, and wedding suits for men in London.
Knights & Lords have carefully guarded the craft of creating tailor made suits, learned from Savile Row where the craft was born and passed on through generations. As genuine bespoke tailors in Dubai Marina, it is the responsibility of Knights & Lords to educate people that not everything that is “custom-made” can be called bespoke which needs to be understood by people looking for the best tailored suits.
The experienced bespoke tailors at our tailoring shop will first ask you to choose from a wide array of fabrics, after which you are carefully guided into making all the major and minor decisions that will encompass the crafting of your bespoke tuxedo for weddings and special occasions or bespoke suit for work. These include choosing your pocket style, lapel style, buttons, buttonhole colour, button thread colour, vents and other major features that will shape the overall appearance of your suit. Our experienced bespoke tailor will ask you to choose your own lining fabric from different colours and designs and will also give you the option of having your name or initials inside the bespoke suit. All these you can decide on based on whether you need a tailored fit for business meetings or if you are looking for tailor made tuxedo suits or wedding suits for men.
Some other special features that set the best tailored suits and tailor made tuxedo suits apart from off-the-peg variations are working cuffs on your suit sleeves, having the last buttonhole and button thread on your sleeves to be a different colour and having a handmade lapel hole in a colour of your choice. Any special requests such as having a pocket inside your coat to the exact measurements of your wallet, phone, pen or cigar can also be accommodated under bespoke suit tailoring, as the best bespoke tailors never say no to any request made by a client. After everything has been discussed, the Master Tailor will take detailed measurements of your body.
As part of the bespoke tradition, it is important that your suit is hand-cut by the same hands that have measured you. That is an important detail that even some of the bespoke tailors in Dubai Marina fail to recognize. While it would be biased to call Knights & Lords the best suit tailors in the city, we are quite possible the only tailoring shop that strictly adheres to the truest and purest form of bespoke suit tailoring in the country and possible the region.
Except Knights & Lords in Dubai Marina and a few other tailors in London’s famed tailoring street Savile Row, no other tailoring shop specialising in custom made suits and bespoke suit tailoring will be confident enough to cut the fabric directly by mapping your pattern on it without first mapping it on craft paper. When have your tuxedo or wedding suits done by our craftsmen, it will be handcrafted using a floating canvas, which is hand-stitched throughout the front part of your coat. A truly bespoke suit is usually seventy per cent handmade, with at least fifty hours of handwork, so the real price of your tailored tuxedo and tailored suit is patience, apart from its monetary value.
Tailor made suits are considered an extension of a person’s personality, with that tailored garment acting like a second skin. As such, tailor made suits are built to last and are an expression of one’s personal style and does not follow the transient nature of fashion.
Bespoke tailored suits are commissioned for different purposes and events. It is always important for true bespoke tailors to know the purpose of the garment to assist with the construction of a bespoke suit that is utterly perfect for the occasion.

Among the many bespoke tailors that exist on The Row, there are only a couple that we would consider as masters of bespoke suit tailoring. The first of its kind was the Legendary Henry Poole, the first master of personalised suit tailoring on Savile Row - Located on No. 32 since 1847. Henry Poole till today holds over fifty Royal Warrants and has been a tailor to people who have left a footprint in history, such as the Rothschilds and Sir Winston Churchill. He was also the creator of the tailor made suits we today call the ‘tuxedo’ or the ‘dinner jacket’.
However, it was Anderson & Sheppard who had created the revolutionary drape cut, a cut that every tailoring shop and most tailors on The Row today model their tailor-made suits on, including Knights & Lords. As a premiere tailoring shop in Dubai Marina, we seek to bring that level of expertise to the prestigious City of Gold and the rest of the Middle East, providing customers with truly tailor made drape cut tailored suits in Dubai. As bespoke tailors, we strive to make people more aware of the particulars of the art, and train their ‘Eye of Bespoke’ to recognise a truly personalised tuxedo from an off-the-peg variation.
Bespoke tailored suits have evolved from being a regimented battle dress to the lounge suit we wear today. Battles were then fought on the ground and battles now are in people’s everyday lives, in corporate boardrooms. Hence tailor made suits and tuxedo suits can today be considered a true gentlemen’s armour. Hence, tailor made suits and tuxedo suits can today be considered a true gentlemen’s armour, while suit tailoring can be seen as the art of armour crafting, the tailoring shop an armoury, and suit tailors as modern day metal craftsmen.
Frederick Scholte of Anderson & Sheppard, who was the personal tailor of the Duke of Windsor, hated the fact that suits were always restrictive in movement giving a corseted look to the body. He created a cut in which the fabric was not fitted to the body, it was draped over the body in a way that gives a sleek curved silhouette from the sides without restricting movement. He further created a technique where a larger sleeve head could be eased into a smaller armhole by creating small pleats, a technique that can only be achieved by hand, giving immense ease of arm movement and comfort.
It is therefore no surprise that some of the world’s best-dressed men such as Fred Astaire, Rudolph Valentino and Tom Ford have been clients of Anderson & Sheppard. Regardless of whether someone has commissioned a suit from Henry Poole, Anderson & Sheppard, Knights & Lords or other bespoke tailors in Dubai or on Savile Row – London. If you have found a tailor that gives you the bespoke experience you have always imagined and opens up your sensibility to the ‘Eye of Bespoke’, stick to him. He is worth his weight in gold.
