After your initial consultation and measuring, our turnaround time is 2-4 weeks. A rush order may be placed, however certain fees will be assessed.

What is the process for ordering a custom suit?
As you may have noticed, this website does not serve the purpose for ordering a suit. It is for your educational purposes and so that you may familiarize yourself with our process. This is due to the fact that we at The House of Rose believe that building strong and lasting relationships with our clients plays an important part in the production of each individual piece. First we start out with a consultation, which is booked by appointment only. We take some time to discuss what it is you are looking for in particular, along with special design requests and so forth. After your measurements have been taken they are immediately sent to production. One or more fittings may be necessary for special cases.
What type of style options do I have control over?
Everything. You dream it – We create it.
Will my suit fit perfectly the first time?
That is the whole point of bespoke – a suit that feels like a second skin. If it does not fit perfectly upon completion, we will take excellent care to ensure all necessary changes are made.
Can I bring you my own fabric to make a suit?
If there is fabric that you would like to have us use, you may bring it. All that we ask is that you bring enough yardages to complete what it is you are ordering. In that case, you will only be charged for the labor of making your suit.
What if I need my suit before the standard production time?
At The House of Rose we offer a rush delivery option with production finished in under 2 weeks. Certain fees are assessed and discussed with our managers upon request.
I have ordered custom shirts from you guys before. Can I get a suit made based on those measurements, or do I need to come in for an appointment?
We keep all measurements on file for up to 3 months; if your measurements are older than that we ask that you be re-measured to ensure a perfect fit.
