Absolute Mark of a Bespoke Tailoring: Basted Fitting

The acclaimed bespoke tailoring skills at Kingsley Tailors unquestionably include a basted fitting lap, whereby all possibilities are duly worked upon in the direction of producing exclusive Custom Made Suits. However, it is to be noted here that without such area of skillful workmanship, the idea of a custom fit outfit will be incomplete.

Thus, by the time, raw structures of suits reach such a stage, it is generally ready for fitting.
