Front Runners October 2015: Sartorial Electives
The latest fashion house to add made-to-measure clothing to its offerings is Prada (prada.com). The program includes more than 300 fabric options for suits and jackets, 230 materials for shirts, and 30 fabrics for overcoats. The process begins in a Prada store’s VIP room, where a tailor, before taking your measurements, helps you select the suit, jacket, or shirt model; the fabric; and the details. It takes about four weeks for delivery of a shirt ($700 to $2,000) and as long as five weeks for a jacket or suit ($3,500 to $28,000 for a suit).
