WHERE DO YOUR FABRICS COME FROM?

Oscar Hunt uses 100% merino wool, with the majority of the wool coming from Australia and New Zealand.  We use two main cloth companies – Dugdale Cloth and Dormeuil.  Both mill their cloths in Huddersfield, UK.  Dugdale Cloth offers an incredible product at a very reasonable price-point.  Dormeuil is arguably the best clothmaker in the world – exquisite wool sourcing coupled with sophisticated finishing techniques and constant innovation.  We also source linens and cottons from Italy (Solbiati).

WHERE ARE YOUR SUITS MADE?

The core construction of the suit is completed in our construction HQ in Shanghai, China.  We utilise world-leading Gerber laser technology to cut our fabrics, resulting in an extremely precise fit.  We complement this with our specifically sourced interlinings, canvassing and shoulder construction from the best makers in Europe.

We have visited and tested made-to-measure facilities in Portugal, England, Italy and Bulgaria and have found that the precision and consistency, along with the infrastructure, is unrivalled in China.  The cost to us to make the suit is similar in China to their European counterparts - the goal for us however is quality and value.  The only negative that we can find is the stigma attached to the "Made in China" label, as we believe that our Chinese facility is a world leader.

Our suits are finished here, in our showroom, in front of your eyes, by our team of tailors.  It is a truly global process, where we aim to bring together the best fabrics and technology in the world, along with supreme tailoring and client service for the best possible value.

HOW DOES THE FITTING PROCESS WORK?

  • We say it’s a three stage fitting process.Second fitting is after we construct your garments and invite you back to our studio roughly four weeks after the initial appointment. If we need to adjust your garments after the second fitting we have our in-house Master Tailor make any adjustments necessary within a two-week period.If you are working towards a specific date then we will determine whether we are able to work within the timeframe you have.
  • All measurements will be kept on our system for reference if you require any future garments.
  • A third and final fitting is organised where you try on the garments after any alterations are made and if you’re happy with everything you can walk out with the suit over your shoulder.
  • Your first appointment goes for 45mins – 1hour whereby you to sit with our Head Fitter and discuss all fabric options, design elements, pricing, and take all measurements necessary.

WHAT ARE THE DESIGN OPTIONS?

Oscar Hunt offers an enormous amount of design options for your jacket, trouser, shirt, vest or overcoat.  These options include: lapels, pockets, buttons, vents, cuffs, pleats, collars, stitching, padding and many, many more.  Of course our fitters will be on-hand to recommend the different options given your particular needs and requirements.

WHAT SUIT FABRICS CAN I CHOOSE FROM?

We have a large fabric selection that encompasses any cloth type you wish. The most prominent cloth selected across the market for business or everyday suits is wool. Clients looking for that distinctive suit can choose from an array of wools, cottons, linens, mohair, tweeds and more. The below listed fabrics are all made from natural fibres.

WOOL

Wool is versatile in being able to be woven super fine and light/tropical weight, or thick and heavy/warm weight. Different types of wool will create distinct drapes, durability and warmth. The weight of the wool is the best determinant of whether it best suits a winter or summer climate. Wool is a natural product therefore it breaths regardless of whether its heavy or light.

COTTON

Cotton is not only used for shirts, but can look great in your everyday suit. Although it might seem informal or casual because of garment creasing, it can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. Blazers or sports jackets can typically be made from cotton to give a natural feel or provide an enhanced casual look. Cotton can also be woven openly to create the desired look similar to linen.

LINEN

Linen tends to be an open weave fabric with a weight and texture that creates a desired look. The open weave allows it to breath, as it is a naturally thicker fibre. Linen would be typically used in a summer suit made for warmer climates.

BLENDS

Blends can create desired effects and particular looks. Blending different cloth types can enhance durability, sheen, texture, and softness. Each fabric choice and its percentage of blended fabric will create a different drape and overall feel to the cloth.

Blends might be: Linen and silk, cotton and linen, silk and cotton, wool and cashmere, or wool and mohair.

Fantastic experience from start to finish my husband's suit was held up due to corona virus, but they still managed to get it in and the alterations were turned around in a matter of days. The office and fitting rooms in the city are beautiful. We had a really great time going in for his fittings and sharing a complimentary whiskey or two after in their beautiful reception room. The suit itself was amazing, extremely high quality and this showed both in person and in photos. We would have another suit made by Oscar Hunt if the circumstances arose.

Wonderful service and skill - my groom looked amazing in his suit which fitted him like a glove. They took time to get to know us and what we wanted, and the process was a lot of fun. Professional and good value. Wouldn't go anywhere else now for tailoring.

The tailors at Oscar Hunt were brilliant. They made my husband feel so comfortable when getting fitted for his suit and listened to everything he was after. They also made some great recommendations about the fabrics he should use and also styles that would be most flattering to his body type. The suit fit perfectly and it was wonderful to see him so comfortable and looking amazing on the day.
