Tailoring, at a sensible price

Due to the fact each and every S.W. James is made by hand, adding a few personal touches and details isn’t normally a complicated process.

As a result, tailoring prices normally start at around 25% more than our standard stock. A custom-made piece normally doesn’t take much longer to create than one of our more standard pieces. Time fames get slightly longer if custom frames or custom materials needs to be sourced before the production process can begin. We are always happy to discuss tailored jobs.
