Made to Measure Suits

Hand-Tailored for you

A suit is one essential item in a man’s wardrobe. At the very least, every man ought to have in his arsenal one good suit. However, the truth is that different events in life often demand for different kinds of attire and buying multiple suits is a luxury that very few can comfortably afford. The fashion industry tends to change pretty fast and you must ensure your style of dressing changes with it.

Tailored Suit Buying Tips

If you have never done it previously, buying a new tailored suit can not only be frustrating but tiresome. If formal wear is not your thing, it can be quite painful to spend a sizeable amount of money on something you are likely to rarely wear. However, it really doesn’t have to be like that.

Every man, whether in Cork or anywhere else in the country, needs a good suit, and preferably a tailored suit. However, we at Con Murphys realise that not every man really knows how to go about choosing the right suit and that is why Con Murphy’s has developed the following couple of tips in that direction. We want you looking sharp.

Choose a Suit to match the Occasion

Most of the suits we make are for special occasions. When a man is getting married, naturally he wants to look his best. There is no better way to than Made to Measure to accentuate a man’s physique and style.

Choosing a fabric to match the Occasion

We have been making suits since 1932. You can be assured that the knowledge that we have gained through our experience will be vital to help you choose the correct fabric and fitting for your occasion. If you are getting married, we will show you our Italian mill collection. These patterns are very fine (Super 100, 120, 130 & 150) They tailor impeccably, showing every curve of the wearers physique. These cloths are ideal for the tailored look. If you need a made to measure suit for an important business occasion, we will show you our collection of patterns from Irish and UK mills. These tend to be heavier patterns, and therefore more durable. A made to measure pin stripe suit sits very well in those very important business meetings.

Made to measure Suit Order procedure

Call us on 00353 21 4271215 or email [email protected]

And we can make an appointment for you.

The procedure will take approximately 1 hour for the 1st measure.

We will firstly show you our complete fabric collection, and then advise you which fabrics will match your occasion. We will then ask you to try on some template fittings, to see what way you like your suit to fit. We have 4 different lengths to choose from, and we will recommend the length that will suit your build most. There are 3 different types of blocks (jacket fits) available, we will then recommend the block that will best suit your physique.

The accessories then follow, how many pockets, embroidery, colour of lining, colour of Buttons etc.

The manufacturing procedure then begins, and It will take approximately 4 weeks before delivery (Please leave at least 6 weeks during the busy summer wedding season)

We will contact you as soon as your suit arrives, and we will ask you to call to our store again to get your final fitting. On 95% of the time, there won’t need any alterations, but sometimes we need to do some minor tailoring to complete the process.

  • Great service and a very good selection of menswear. I got quite a few compliments for the tie and outfit I bought. When I am in Cork again, I will be back!

  • I was looking for a bit more quality, or something more special than bulk rented suits, so I read a lot of reviews on line and came across Con Murphys. The suit I went for was tailored for me, so I actually bought my suit, which is fantastic, and the groomsmen rented theirs, fantastic service, thanks so much again Donie for your help, a real expert

  • Got my wedding suit from this shop. The staff is very friendly and professional, I was actually impressed. The suit is also perfect, I'll use it many times (I went for something that can be reused quite easily, not the wedding only kind). If you need to look sharp and all business-like, this is the place for you in Cork!

  • This shop is deservedly known as a Cork institution. Excellent service all round: reputation is well deserved. (I'm also pleased to note that the Benetti advert featuring Stuart Olding et al seems to have been taken down from its prominent place in the window; this was a wise decision, given his and his comrade's self-described reprehensible behaviour.)
