Recently, the tables are turning and we have noticed that nowadays customers at Daniel and Lade bespoke menswear prefer to go through their measurements themselves especially due to the fact that they do not want to travel far just to book in at our studio for their bespoke outfit measurements. This is not a surprise to us as we have also provided them an easy to use suitable 3d bespoke menswear online design platform to completely design their own outfit themselves.
We have put up a few guides below for those taking their measurements and ordering from us for the first time. If you ever still need one of our tailors to assist you with your measurements, please do not hesitate to contact us.
