When it comes to weddings not many people consider that the groom may be as much into fashion as the bride, unhappy to just settle for a bog-standard, off the rack two-piece. Renowned menswear atelier Louis Copeland & Sons is here to cater to the grooms that want the finer in life with their amazing Made to Measure suits!

Louis Copeland & Sons

Create a suit that is truly unique to you. Louis Copeland & Sons made to measure specialists provide 1:1 private tailoring and guide you through the entire process. It's just as important to consider the fabric blend to ensure the wearer is comfortable all day, as it is to choose the right colour and pattern, after all, Ireland in the Winter would require a warmer outfit than a beach wedding in Portugal! You will see your creation take shape down to the last detail, as you select the lapels, buttons, pockets & lining. The garment is then expertly crafted and delivered in about six weeks. If there's a style you have in mind then you can bring some photos of what you’d like to achieve, or their amazing team can help you select the best fabric and details for your venue and location, to make sure you have the perfect suit for your wedding day. 

Louis Copeland & Sons are hosting their Made To Measure Event from Thursday 13th to Sunday 23rd of October, offering amazing deals like, buy 1 suit get 1 half price, buy 1 suit get a blazer half price and buy 1 blazer get 1 half price!

Q. How much does a Made To Measure Suit cost?

A.  Made To Measure Suits costs from €995 and the blazers cost from €799. Each garment is made with high-quality fabric, detailed tailoring and personalised touches making them a necessary splurge for any potential groom!

Q. Who comes to my wedding suit appointment?

A. Whoever you like! If you’re fitting out your Groomsmen too, they recommend an initial visit for you and your fiancée to choose your suit and the suits you’d like for your wedding party. Then you can arrange a 2nd visit with your Groomsmen to get fitted, having already made the big decisions on the suits, it’s a fun atmosphere where they team takes the measurements, and you can relax & enjoy.

Q. I’m planning to hit the gym to look my best on our Wedding Day, when should I come in for a fitting?

A. You can come in a couple of months before your wedding or as early as you like and choose your suit and all the details. The tailors do recommend you come back 8 weeks before your wedding for a final measuring before your suit is made to ensure the best fit. They can always make small adjustments in the weeks before your wedding too, if needed.

So how does their Made to Measure process work?

The 4 step process

  1. The Appointment - (you can book your personal appointment in the store of your choice, at a time that suits you, anytime at louiscopeland.com). When you arrive in the store, you will be met by one of the tailoring specialists who will explain the process. They will help you choose the right fabric, taking into consideration any ideas you have, the venue, climate, and your skin tone. Together you will choose the lapels, pockets, buttons and lining to create a truly unique suit.
  2. The Fitting – During your Appointment, full measurements will be taken to ensure the final garment will be tailored perfectly to you.
  3. Personalisation – You can further personalise your suit with a monogram. Their skilled specalists will embroider under the collar or the inside jacket pocket with something meaningful to you, perhaps your initials or your wedding date.
  4. Final Fitting & Collection – It takes approximately six weeks for your suit to be constructed. Once your suit arrives in-store, you will be invited in for a final fitting.  The in-house tailors can make any final amendments necessary to ensure a truly personal fit.
