CUSTOM ORDERS

What makes you different from other tailors?

18th Amendment falls into a unique space because we’d like to say we're in between Custom and Made to Measure. Let us explain…All of our clients' patterns are made from scratch using the 30 body measurements our clothiers take. Our garments are not based off a set block pattern, then adjusted. Our master tailors use the body measurements to create a unique pattern for every customer, cut fabric to the pattern and create garments. So our fitting and make is a Custom make, however we have set house styles like Made to Measure. They were designed by our Creative Head Angel Ramos, who gets much of his inspiration from the Golden Age. So in regards to design, clients get to choose from our styles of lapel widths, for example, while their Clothier guides them to which model is most appropriate for their specific frame.

Where are 18th Amendment garments made?

All of our garments are made by our master tailors from around the world, at one of two tailoring facilities located in Italy and China.

How are adjustments handled?

During your second fitting your Clothier will determine, with you, whether any adjustments need to be made. Any adjustments that need to be made are conducted in-house at no cost to the client, for up to three months from the time of delivery.

In the unusual event a garment cannot be adjusted reasonably, 18th Amendment will arrange for the client to be re-fitted and the garment will be remade. There is no cost to the client undergoing this process.

Please note that we will not be responsible for alterations due to weight gain or loss once the garment is completed. If alterations are needed due to weight fluctuation they will be made at the client’s expense. Any changes made after the garment has been completed that deviate from the original instructions and/or styling of the garments will be made at the client’s expense. It is the client’s responsibility to properly care for his/her garments and thus we are not responsible for wear and tear of the garments.

How are your garments priced?

Our garments are priced based upon the specific fabric chosen by the client. Our suiting starts at $1,295 and shirting starts at $225.

How does payment work?

18th Amendment offers the option to pay in full up front or pay a 50% deposit. If paying a deposit, the second half of payment will be collected once we receive the garment from our master tailors and prior to your 2nd fitting.

Payment can be provided with a credit or debit card during the first fitting or paid via an invoice that is emailed to you shortly after your appointment.

Garment production begins once the initial payment is received.

How does your process work?

We work by appointment only, so please submit a request here or email us at info@eighteenthamendment.com and we will schedule a fitting with one of our Clothiers.

First fittings take about an hour. 18th Amendment will guide you through all the decisions that go into making your suit and then we conduct the initial fitting, taking up to 30 Body measurements to ensure a proper fit.

Your suit is then delivered and we contact you for a second fitting. During this fitting we assess what adjustments are needed to your garment and final alterations are completed within 10 business days.

Thereafter, we have your pattern on file for re-ordering. Making any changes to your pattern is very simple.

Which fabrics do you offer?

18th Amendment features over 30,000 fabrics from many of the world’s finest mills including Fox Brothers, Holland & Sherry, Dormeuil, Loro Piana, Harrisons of Edinburgh, WBill, Caccioppoli, Huddersfield Textiles, Hardy Minnis, Drapers and more. We tend to recommend fabrics with great performance and a luxurious finish that suits our clients everyday needs. We also carry exceptional ultra-luxurious fabrics such as 100% cashmere, camel hair, vicuna fabrics for blazers and overcoats. Discuss all of these options with your clothier.

How long is your turnaround time?

Our standard turnaround time, from the date payment is received to final delivery of your garment, is 6-8 weeks including alterations.

Can a Clothier travel for a fitting?

As we continue to build our sales team and hire clothiers around the country there may be some cities we just might not be able to staff. In that event we have two options:

  • Currently, we hold 3 trunk show tours per year during which Angel Ramos travels around the country visiting 8 major cities for private fittings. If a client is located in one of those cities and we do not have a local Clothier, this would be a great option.
  • If there is no local Clothier in a client’s city, and a client happens to live in a city that is currently not part of our trunk show tour, then your next option is a private visit. We will travel to a client privately for a fitting with a guaranteed minimum purchase of $12,500, with an upfront security deposit of $2500 that gets applied to the client’s order.

* Keep in mind that although minimum purchase is $12,500, regardless of what a client orders, we will first make one garment of each (suit, jacket, trouser, shirt, etc.) to ensure the fit and pattern is proper then release the remaining order into production.

What does 18th Amendment advise regarding wear and tear on a garment?

Wear and tear is normal and eventually un-avoidable. 18th Amendment is not responsible for wear and tear of a garment. Clients are advised to please read the garment care advice and take caution from our Clothiers to prolong the life of the garment. Some specific wear and tear is a result of certain behaviors, habits and body shapes. Clients are advised to consult with our Clothier for the most appropriate cloth if wear is expected in certain areas. Trouser wear in the crotch is reasonably common for some men who rub in this area. Clients should please note that more delicate and luxurious cloths will fail quickly in these conditions.

How does 18th Amendment handle returns and refunds?

18th Amendment is committed to our customers’ satisfaction with respect to the garment's quality and fit. Because garments are made to a customer's specific fit, returns will not be accepted. If the client is not thrilled with the fit of a garment once it is made by our master tailors, we will alter it to fit the client’s preferences. In rare instances where there is an improper fit due to a mistake in the production of the garment that cannot be fixed through normal alterations, we will remake the garment at our cost.
