Technology Meets Tradition

Countless articles in men’s magazines and blogs talk about the relationship a man (or woman) has with their tailor.  It is something unique, especially in the fast-paced modern era.  Just the way one may find that they can share openly their most personal thoughts with their barber, the trust that exists behind that confidence is even stronger with the one who make sure you are dressed well.

An experienced tailor understands the inner workings of a garments, and the inner workings of you.  Rather than merely pin, deconstruct, and sew, they are able to understand you and make you feel understood.  Thus your trust when they help you select a piece of clothing or determine how it should best fit.

Step in to our shop at Stitch-It, and we hope you instantly feel that link to a time when it was commonplace to come see your tailor to share your life events and create a new suit.  In fact, that still goes on here every day. The good news?  We are not so set in our ways that we don’t like technology.  While some are attempting to replace the tailor with technology that can scan and inventory your every body part, we believe in utilizing technology to enhance the traditional experience.  After all, I still don’t know a computer that will share a drink with you after your appointment!

When you order a Loring & Co. Bespoke suit, we keep a digital record of you and your suit.  We keep your measurements, but also a visual record of the clothing we have made for you.  In short, we can show (or even email) you a visual of your wardrobe.  We can also propose new outfits to compliment your existing collection.

All of this is to alleviate the nervousness of wondering if you selected the right fabric or if it will go with that shirt you already own.  Now, you can see it before we make it.  It’s simple yet impressive.
