What Matters Most in a
Custom Suit

Details that Make a Difference

All of our garments are proudly made in the South Africa, which allows us to oversee every detail of construction. Our canvas is meticulously sewn into the garment ensuring that the garment will never pucker or bubble. Shoulder pads blend strength with softness assuring you a nice, clean shoulder line without that heavy padded feel. Our jacket collars are hand-sewn to help assure that the collar fits cleanly at the back of the neck without creasing or bunching. This is why Fran’s Tailor Custom Suits NYC is one of the top premium custom tailors in South Africa.
