Originally, tailors were craftsmen who fabricated custom-made, padded linen undergarments. These were worn by noblemen underneath their chain mail to prevent unwanted chafing. Over time, the role of the tailor in British society became so important that King Henry I. granted his favourite tailors royal rights and privileges around 1100.
Over the following centuries, tailoring continued to develop. Tailors used their skills to refine the aristocratic garments of their respective period, making each garment better, more elegant, and more appealing. Respected by royalty, they were considered to be important figures who performed an honourable task for the good of their nation.
In the 18th century, the famous London shopping street Saville Row was founded. Here, specialised hatters, glove makers, and tailors continued the proud tradition of custom tailoring by dressing the upper classes in the finest fabrics woven exclusively for them.
With the French Revolution came a noticeable change in the world of fine apparel and, respectively, its emphasis shifted. The demand for made-to-measure clothing no longer focused on the nobility and instead aimed at high-ranking military officers.
Throughout this period, tailors remained among the highly respected members of society. Subsequently, they began to establish large tailor shops full of dressmakers and hired tailors. Rather than making bespoke garments, they now fashioned them according to the style and fit of their respective master tailors. Made-to-measure clothing was born.
By means of the made-to-measure process, they produced custom suits, jackets, made-to-measure shirts and blouses, tailored coats and trouser suits. Each of them was based on refined patterns and featured a unique cut. Around the same time, the made-to-measure trend spread to Berlin and other European cities.
Beginning in the 19th century, as industrialisation progressed, certain processes were automated. This was particularly necessary in the field of tailoring. Manual production was no longer able to meet the constantly increasing demand for made-to-measure clothing.
They also clothed financiers, celebrities, and other public figures. As a result, made-to-measure clothing became more and more integrated into social life in Berlin and throughout the world.
Modern manufacturing techniques have brought custom clothing as a whole to the attention of the masses. However, made-to-measure in Berlin has remained a distinct symbol of quality and craftsmanship to this day.
