The bridge between ready-to-wear and the pure excellence of bespoke tailoring, the Lanvin made-tomeasure service blends a kind of classicism with modern cuts, and its following grows bigger by the day. A customised approach to men’s fashion, rooted in the renowned hand-made tailoring.
The fitting allows any imperfections to be analysed, and rectified not
after the suit is made, as with ready-to-wear, but before.”A madeto- measure customer can naturally add his initials, select two or three buttons, choose the shape of the lapels, an open buttonhole, the colour of the lining… there is a wealth of fabrics to choose from, since the customer is given 20 bunches, i.E. 1,200 To 1,500 different fabrics, permanent or seasonal, from which to make a final choice.

The garment is complete after around six or seven weeks. Further adjustment is possible, but this stage is about the satisfaction of appreciating the extent to which Lanvin 15 faubourg pieces are produced with the savoir faire of the art. Toiles composed of natural
fibres such as horsehair and camel hair, fabric sewn over the structure with a pure cotton thread and no glue, the shoulder supported by a handsewn cotton epaulette, a pure cotton undercollar, inner lining in pure bemberg… quality itself! And the intense pleasure that the initiate derives from the refinement of personalisation. Made-to-measure? A delicious blend of style and sophistication that is 100% Lanvin.
