How do I know what style is best for me?

We can certainly help with that. Book an appointment with an ALFRED SUNG stylist to find your perfect style.


Do you make suits for children?

We don’t make children’s suit sizes at the moment. We might someday… they are the future.


Are your shirts dry clean only or can I machine-wash them at home?

Most of our shirts can be machine washed on a cold cycle and dried on a line. Iron on low to medium heat only. To be safe, double-check the care instructions on the tag inside your shirt to be sure.


Can I bring in a garment to have copied?

No, but we will create one of a kind pieces specifically designed and made for you, incorporating the details and fit that suits you.


How is Bespoke different from made-to-measure? 

The made-to-measure process works with a limited number of symmetrical adjustments (+/-) in girth(s) and length(s) to a pre-existing pattern. Comparable to buying an off the rack suit and having it altered. A true bespoke garment is created using a unique, original pattern specific to each client's body structure.


What is an ALFRED SUNG Bespoke stylist? 

Our custom stylists are equipped with the knowledge and ability to measure and create a bespoke garment providing their customers with the best experience and fit. Every certified ALFRED SUNG Bespoke stylist has gone through a series of thorough measuring tutorials and a thorough screening process.

What happens if my suit does not fit quite right when I receive it?

Our custom suits may require some minor alterations at our final fitting. We’re not happy until you are.


Do I need to get re-measured every time I need a new suit or shirt?

We keep all your measurements on file, so long as you’re confident that your body hasn’t changed, we can absolutely place future orders based on your first set of measurements. We do however recommend that you get re-measured once a year.


Where do I get fitted?

Our Stylist can come visit you at home or at work, if you prefer to come to us, we do have a midtown location – which you are welcome to come to for your fitting. It’s at 1100 Bathurst Street. You can book appointments here


Do you have any vegan suits?

Not at the moment. Our suits are made with real horn buttons, horsehair canvas and wool blends.


Where are your suits made?

We partner with a factory in Shenzhen, China.


Can I order just a suit jacket?

Absolutely! You can order an individual bespoke jacket, or just the pants or just a vest. It’s entirely up to you. To explore more design options book an appointment with one of our Master Tailors.


How can I prolong the life of my suit?

All of our bespoke suits are made from fine fabrics and so you will find that they last considerably longer, then most off-the-rack options. The following suggestions will help you to get the most out of your bespoke suit:

- The simple solution to increasing the life of your suit is to rotate a number of suits, wearing them less.

- You will find that your trousers are subject to far more everyday wear and tear than your jacket. Purchasing an extra pair of trousers could potentially double the life of your bespoke suit. There is no reason that the two pairs of trousers should be exactly the same style either, enabling you to vary the style of your full suit.

- Make sure you take your suit to a specialist dry cleaner

- Look after your suits when you are wearing them; try not to carry bulky items in your pockets as they will alter the structure of the fabric.

- Try to avoid wearing your jacket when travelling, and always hang your suit up wherever possible.


How can I pay for my order?

We accept all major credit cards. Bespoke orders are paid in full before our cutters begin cutting the garments.


How long will it take to get my custom order once you have my measurements?

It takes about 2-3 weeks for our tailors to craft your custom clothing.


Can you offer advice on the best suit for me?

When you come in for a fitting, our ALFRED SUNG bespoke stylists will help with all the decisions to pick the best options that work for you, in fact it is part of the measuring process, some styles suit some shapes better than others.
