COVID UPDATE: UK Government - None Essential Retail.

Following todays UK government announcement regarding the proposed dates for re-opening of none essential retail, we are releasing this statement for the attention of all customers that currently have orders booked with us within the UK, and for anybody that wishes to book in for future orders.

This is great news for A Hand Tailored Suit and our tailoring teams as we miss you all so much! Whilst the UK government are working towards a date of the 12th April to allow us to safely reopen, this date is subject to change. should there be setbacks, therefore, as much as we have everything crossed for a return by this date, we will not be re-booking any existing customers in for fittings until 14 days prior to the 12th April. This is so that we can guarantee that the reopening date will definately be going ahead, and so that we can offer first refusal on dates for clients that have missed their appointments due to the national lockdown. Once we are certain that we can safely open our Birmingham showroom & continue with our tailoring visits in Cambridge & Manchester our team will be in touch to rebook you all as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued patience.

We will be working hard behind the scenes to keep you all up to date with future announcements.
