In addition to our selection of ready-to-wear items, Milan Providence Clothiers is proud to offer you the luxury of designing your own private-label garments, custom-fit to you.
How Made-to-Measure Works
The process is easy: come in to try on some sample garments and have your measurements taken. Next, select from a wide variety of high-end European fabric swatches.
Your measurements and fabric selections are sent to the manufacturer in Europe. In five to seven weeks, your clothing arrives, and you’ll have the satisfaction of owning a unique garment of top quality that is perfectly tailored to your body.

What is the Value of Made-to-Measure?
Consider that when you shop at any major department store, you’re paying a premium for the marketing behind the brand labels: and those prices don’t necessarily guarantee quality. Your selection is limited to colors that may not suit your complexion or taste, fad-driven styles that pass within a season, and off-the-rack sizing that most likely doesn’t fit you properly.
At Milan Providence Clothiers, you’ll pay prices comparable to the best department stores, but the difference is your investment will result in timeless styles with a perfect made-to-measure fit and the finest superfine wool and cashmere from Italian makers like Loro Piana and Vitale Barberis. And our wide selection of fabric colors allows you to make the best choices to complement your skin tone, eyes and hair. For further personalization, complimentary monogramming is also available.
The jackets, pants and shirts of the made-to-measure line are all interchangeable, so you’ll be able to coordinate numerous outfits with ease. And the exceptional quality of the materials and handmade canvas construction of the suiting means these pieces should last 10 to 15 years.
