Peter will take time to learn more about each clients requirements – the tailoring they want, their personal style and so on. He will then take all the necessary measurements and the process will start in earnest.  That first appointment will be followed by a fitting appointment (sometimes second fittings are required) and the final collection appointment at our townhouse location in the heart of Edinburgh.
