The wearer of a suit cannot see himself as others do: from a distance, at all angles, moving or standing. Our specially trained tailors depend as much on what their eyes tell them as what the tape measure says. After a fitting, our tailors make gentle adjustments to your paper pattern that result in the masterfully tailored garment all customers of R. W. Furr have come to expect.
All other clothiers extol their virtues, claiming that their garments are “hand-made,” even when they only contact their “tailors” by fax or mail.
What distinguishes R. W. Furr Clothiers is that the tailor who makes your pattern will fit you personally. Perfection in custom apparel is high-touch, not high-tech. Equally important, we listen to, advise, and counsel you on each aspect of your appearance, helping you refine your own sense of style and taste.
After wearing a fully custom suit or shirt from R. W. Furr, all generic clothing becomes passe. Ready-made suits are cut in short, regular, long, and extra long, with a 1.5-inch variation in length from size to size. Most men are between sizes, resulting in coat lengths out of proportion to their height.
Although rack suits can be altered, they cannot be balanced to your unique physique. Left and right shoulders don’t always slope exactly the same way, and the curve of the back differs from person to person. Shorten the coat and the front pockets are now too close to the bottom and out of balance with the rest of the jacket. Collar doesn’t quite hug your neck? Shorten the collar, but now the jacket hikes up in the back.
This is where R. W. Furr comes in. Sophisticated measuring devices allow our tailors to determine your precise form. Proper balance is achieved by correctly interpreting measurements and producing a pattern made uniquely for you.
