Armani to Zegna: Harrods' Made-To-Measure Weekend

For many, the world of made-to-measure suiting is clouded with so-called exclusivity and elitism. There's that perceived sartorial divide – a Great Wall Of Style.

Really, the rise-and-rise of customised tailoring should come as no surprise.

But unlike bespoke tailoring – which still commands a mighty price point – made-to-measure suiting is a luxury that's decidedly practical. 

Think of MTM as the bridge between ready-to-wear and bespoke – pick it, customize it, make it your own, and have it fit like a glove.

This weekend at Harrods, discerning men have the opportunity to come face-to-face and commission master tailors from esteemed brands: a dizzying array from Armani to Zegna.
