Experience & Process
What do I need to know before getting a tailored suit?
- Know the purpose: Understand the primary use of the suit, whether it's for business, weddings, or casual events, to ensure the tailor creates a suit suitable for the intended occasion.
- Research tailors: Look for a reputable tailor with positive reviews and a portfolio showcasing their work, ensuring a high-quality outcome.
- Budget: Determine your budget for the tailored suit, taking into account the cost of fabric, tailoring, and any additional customizations.
- Choose the right fabric: Understand the differences between fabrics like wool, cotton, linen, and blends, and select one based on the suit's purpose, climate, and personal preferences.
- Style and design: Familiarize yourself with various suit styles, lapel types, pocket designs, and button configurations, so you can communicate your preferences to the tailor.
- Colour: Decide on a suit colour that complements your skin tone, aligns with the intended purpose, and provides versatility in your wardrobe.
- Measurements: Be prepared to have accurate measurements taken by the tailor, and wear appropriate undergarments and shoes to the fitting for the best results.
- Timing: Allow ample time for the tailoring process, typically several weeks, and plan for multiple fittings to ensure the perfect fit.
- Alteration potential: Discuss the possibility of future alterations with your tailor, as weight fluctuations or style changes may necessitate adjustments.
- Care and maintenance: Learn how to properly care for your tailored suit, including cleaning, storage, and preservation techniques, to maximize its lifespan and maintain its appearance.
Having a clear understanding of these factors will help you make informed decisions and ensure a successful tailoring experience, resulting in a suit that fits impeccably and elevates your style.
What is the process?
- Book a complimentary consultation to review the fabric range, discuss style options and establish rapport with your experienced clothier.
- Sit with us to confirm fabrics and styles. Measurements are taken. Deposit is paid.
- An appointment for your skeleton baste/fitting mold is organised.
- Adjustments and modifications are made to ensure the cut is perfect.
- During your final fitting, a detailed review is conducted of your custom clothing. Balance is paid after you are 100% satisfied.
How long does it usually take to receive the final product from the first fitting?
4 – 6 weeks but we can provide shorter timeframes upon request as an added express option.
How long does the first fitting/consultation take?
Usually between 45 mins to 1 hr depending on your needs. If you need a shorter appointment of 20 – 30 minutes we can accommodate.
How many fittings will I need to come in for?
Usually 2 – 3 fittings depending on your garments needs. We would like to ensure the fit is to both your and our liking. If you would prefer less fittings this can be arranged with the clothier at your first appointment.
How do I get measured?
- The best place to get measured is in our luxurious showroom at 300 George St, Brisbane CBD by an expert clothier. Why trust anyone but an expert to take your measurements?? The beautiful showroom also allows you to see all our product lines including sample suits, jackets, jeans, bags and shoes to name a few.
- We are also a travelling clothier, we bring the showroom to you. We have over 3000 suit and shirt fabrics. Prior to the appointment a phone call is organised to discuss your needs to ensure we bring all the correct fabrics. We visit Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne each month so can accommodate your needs in these cities.
- We can also measure your favourite garment. Drop into the showroom or send to Wil Valor 2/300 George St, Brisbane, Qld 4000.
How does it work if my body is changing (gaining weight/muscle - losing weight)?
This is all taken into consideration from the first appointment. If you are serious about losing or gaining 10+ kgs it is often a good idea to select your fabric, get some measurements taken for the fitting mold and then plan your 2nd fitting at a time when you believe your weight will be stable. This way the big decisions are done and the fitting process is organised to ensure you get the perfect fit.
How does the showroom experience work?
We provide a luxury experience like one might expect from a traditional tailor. A warm greeting with a smile, an offer of a premium refreshment on arrival, a luxurious chesterfield to sit on while we get to know you and understand your needs.
Once we are familiar with you and your needs, we selectively present fabrics which we believe are the best choices for you and your occasion. Once fabrics are decided upon, we take 20 detailed measurements, we discuss the style options, balance, and proportions to best suit your body shape.
We review your order to ensure everything is to your liking, a deposit is paid and we plan your next visit.
These are no obligation appointments, we want you to feel confident and comfortable with your purchase.

What do I do if I have a groomsman or family member living overseas?
This is no problem at all. We have successfully fit out grooms and groomsmen for wedding suits in different locations for many years. We send through detailed measurement instructions which can be taken by a partner, tailor or the person next door. We double check the measurements and ask for a re-measure of any suit measurements which don’t seem quite right. We then make a fitting mold which is sent to them. Once they receive the suit fitting mold, we have a detailed process to ensure the final suit fits very well. Considering we don’t personally take their measurements, this is the best process because the last thing you want is for them to try on the suit the week of the wedding and it is ill-fitting and beyond alteration. (There is no time to remake the suit) This process takes away all of the suit fitting concerns and is tried and tested to deliver well-fitting suits.

Do you pay for a suit before or after tailoring?
Typically, you pay a deposit for a bespoke suit before tailoring begins, covering the cost of materials and initial labor. The remaining balance is due upon completion of the suit and after any necessary adjustments, ensuring a perfect fit and satisfaction with the final product.
Where are the suit fabrics from at Wil Valor?
It is safe to say we have the country’s largest range of fabrics, we have and will continue to search the globe for the world’s finest and most unique fabrics to craft your custom, tailored garments. We have world renowned fabrics from the mills of Zegna, Scabal, Dormeuil, Lora Piana, Cerruti and Solbati along with a growing list of boutique mills creating some of the world’s most luxurious unique fabrics. We are here to assist in guiding you, so with our fabric range your imagination is the only limitation.
We hold 100% wools, wool/cashmere, wool/silk/cashmere and wool/linen blends. We also hold cotton, linen and mohair suit, jacket and trouser fabric options.
Australian Merino wool, which is globally recognised as the finest type of wool is widely used by the mills mentioned above and we are proud to support the thriving Australian wool industry.
Wool is a highly breathable and soft fabric. It is also odour resistant, difficult to crease, easy to care for and incredibly soft and perfect for all occasions and seasons.
This exquisite fabric is sourced from cashmere goats and is what every person should aspire to wear. It is soft and luxurious and has the most delightful feel. 100% cashmere is only suitable for bespoke jackets whereas the Wool/Cashmere blends can be used for an ‘’event’’ suit which is sparingly worn.
Discerning individuals will cherish garments made in this fabric. We hold 100’s of choices in the most striking colour ranges and patterns.
Mohair is the fabric you choose when you need a business suit which travels well. The hard-wearing, crease-resistant attributes make it a favourite of the corporate world. Taken from the fleece of the Angora goat, some mohair fabrics have a lustre which provides a luxurious well travelled suiting option. We have 100’s of mohair options including the softer wool/mohair blends available in our showroom.
Linen is a light weight fabric which is tailor made for Summer. It is treasured for its breathability and is well known as the Italian Summer suiting fabric. It doesn’t retain the heat like cotton hence it is used in more tropical warmer climates. The aesthetic of a bespoke linen suit or trouser is comfortable yet stylish. It is naturally a thicker fibre (Made from plants), but its open weave allows the fabric to breath. 100% natural linen will crease quite significantly but there are some Linens with about 5% polyester which gives you the aesthetic of linen without all the creases. This is a great option for wedding suits. We have 100’s of linen options from world renowned linen mills in both suiting and shirting.
Cotton is from the cotton plant and is not generally known as a great suiting option. It doesn’t wear particularly well and some cottons ‘’feel’’ heavier to wear especially in jackets. In saying this, from time to time we use shirt cottons for sports jackets and they are light, easy to care for and provide you with vast colour and pattern jacket options. The majority of cottons are used for chino’s and dress shorts to which the fabric is best suited.
Why are there blended fabrics?
The mills use the best attributes of each fabric and change their percentage in the fabric to create different drape, wearability and overall aesthetic. An example is a fabric which consists of Wool 55%, Silk 35% and Linen 10% - This fabric is typically made for sports jackets, or a suit sparingly worn, the wool provides structure and durability, the silk provides the softness and lustre and the linen provides the slightly more casual aesthetic of texture.
The blended fabrics are considered more luxurious fabrics. It takes a deep understanding of different fabric traits and a highly skilled team and mill to produce such beautiful fabrics.
Why are some fabrics a lot more expensive than others?
We have a wide range of fabrics at substantially different price points. The fabrics at $1700 are light weight Italian wools and linens. A good quality cloth which can be considered more hard wearing and a great option for those on a budget for their wedding suit or everyday work suits.
As the price increases, a few factors need to be taken into consideration:
- The quality of fabrics
- The brand and mill
- The pattern selection
What determines the quality of fabric?
Super numbers are common to see and Super refers to how fine the individual strands of wool are which have been spun into yarn and then woven into a fabric. The numbers generally range from 100 – 280. This number indicates how many strands can be made from one kilogram of raw wool. Anything under 110’s is quite a course fabric and not that enjoyable to wear. The higher the number the more refined and softer the feel of the fabric.
The Super 110’s – 150’s are good for everyday wear compared to Super 170’s – 280’s which can be worn for business or weddings but will need to be rotated with your other suits. It is a good idea to give your suit 24hrs rest as the creases will fall out and allow the fabric to fall back into its original shape.
The fineness of wool is measured in microns (μm) or millionths of a meter. Your average S100 count wool is about 18.75μm in diameter. For comparison, the average human hair is about 100μm wide. One of the finest fabrics we hold is the 15 micron. The name says it all, the refined wool is 15μm and is exquisite to wear and sure to help you look and feel your best.
Why does brand and mill matter?
World renowned mills only choose the highest quality raw materials which increases the cost along with specialised methods which are critical in determining and making the most of a quality fibre. Some mills specialise in particular fabric blends, which are time consuming and take an expert team to execute which increases the cost. The well-known mills also provide a wider colour and patten range that you cannot get from the standard fabric suppliers. The fantastic variety allows individualism which assists in increasing the price.
Why does the weight of the fabric matter?
The weight of fabric tells you what temperature or season the fabric is most appropriate for. This is indicated in grams or ounces and is based on the weight of one yard (91 cm) of fabric. Generally speaking, the fabric weights are between 175g(6oz) and 320g (11oz).
A fabric’s weight is determined by how it is woven, its composition and the finish. The English mills tend to make slightly heavier fabrics to keep warm during the winters while the Italians have milder winters and hot summers so their fabric tends to be lighter. Most of the fabrics we hold are light to medium weight and Italian in origin as it suits our climate best. We do of course also have heavier weight fabrics for cooler climates and the creation of overcoats.
To clarify further:
Super lightweight; 175G(6oz) – 225G(8oz) - Only wear for tropical conditions, it is very light weight and is quite casual in its drape.
Light weight: 225G(8oz) – 250G(9oz) - Good for warmer temperatures as an all year-round suit fabric, it is light enough for the summer and you can layer in the winter.
Mid weight: 250G(9oz) – 285G(10oz) - Good all year-round suit fabric and also good for the slightly heavier men and women as it will fall better than the light weight fabrics.
Heavy weight 285 + (10oz) Good for Autumn/Fall and winter suiting, overcoats and tweed suiting.
Am I able to order something as a gift (without someone knowing)?
Yes, if they are an existing client, we can create an order without them receiving a notification. So, order at will.
Do we sell gift certificates?

How often should you wear the same suit?
To maximize a suit's longevity, avoid wearing the same suit consecutively. Aim to rotate between 2-3 suits, allowing at least a day between wears for the fabric to recover. This rotation preserves the suit's appearance and extends its lifespan in your wardrobe.
Does steaming a suit clean it?
Steaming a suit helps refresh the fabric, reduce wrinkles, and remove light odors, but it doesn't fully clean it. For thorough cleaning, dry cleaning is recommended, as it removes stains, perspiration, and dirt, prolonging the suit's lifespan and maintaining its appearance.
How often should you dry clean a suit?
Ideally, dry clean a suit only when necessary, when it becomes stained or soiled. Overcleaning can damage the fabric and shorten the suit's lifespan. Regularly airing and spot-cleaning your suit can help reduce the need for dry cleaning.
How can I freshen my suit without dry cleaning?
To freshen your suit without dry cleaning, gently steam the fabric to remove wrinkles and odors, air it out after each wear, and use a soft brush to remove surface dirt. For spot cleaning, dab a slightly damp cloth on the affected area, avoiding excessive rubbing.
Is it easier to take in a suit jacket or let it out?
It's generally easier to take in a suit jacket, as letting it out depends on the availability of extra fabric in the seams. Consult with a professional tailor to determine if adjustments are feasible and to ensure a proper fit without compromising the jacket's structure.
