And here at Formal Red, we understand the immense value a made-to-measure suit can provide — it's from there we derive our commitment to quality and mastery of craft.

PREMIUM EUROPEAN FABRICS

EXCELLENCE FROM EVERY ANGLE

PREMIUM FABRICS

We house an extensive range of luxury European fabrics, handpicked for every season — allowing you to always sport the latest trends with a comfortable and fashionable edge. The variety of patterns, textures and weights to choose from gives you the ultimate freedom to craft a suit that stands out — whatever the occasion.

LATEST DESIGNS

As your personalised pattern is created from your measurements, it allows for a suit to be made that is unique to you — and your style of choice. The process allows us to customise the result, from lining to your embroidered initials — you tell us what you're looking for, and we’ll create the suit that matches.

SIGNATURE FIT

Each one of our tailored suits is made on-demand, cut and stitched by hand to your ultimate preference — for an immaculate, flawfless fit. We'll ensure every detail of the garment sits well, drapes properly and perfectly moulds to your body – yet allows sufficient room for movement and for the garment to breathe. Then we cap it off with finer touches of your choice — like lapel stitching, button design, and pocket style.

Fit like a glove!

I had never invested in a custom suit before, and I don't know why i waited so long. The boys at Formal Red made me feel like James Bond in the perfect tux for my sister's wedding. I got comments from everyone on how sharp it looked. Highly recommend!

Exceptional service

The guys at Formal Red made me 3 suits before jetting off for a business trip. All I can say is I was blown away by the quality and craftmanship. They level of care and detail was second to none. I'll never invest in anything less.

ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

We offer two types of Custom Made services here at FormalRed. A Limited Collection and a Luxury European Collection.

Our Limited Collection is made in Indonesia.

Our Luxury European Collection is made in the EU.

Our Custom Made suits adhere to the fundamental principles of classic European tailoring, utilising the best materials for garment construction to ensure exceptional quality and fit.

Your first appointment goes for approximately 1 hour. You should come in to this consultation with some ideas of what you are after. The finer details we can work through together. Your consultant will take you through fabric selection and then assist you with the design elements. Once fabric selection is made we are able to give you a more accurate idea on price for your custom made suit.  If you choose to proceed from this point we will then begin taking your measurement.

Where we differ from our competitors is our fit stock approach. Before we take your measurements it is important for you to try on a suit so we can give you a better representation of the finished product and so you can also convey your preference to fit and comfort levels. We then take measurements with consideration to your posture, shoulder balance and proportion.

Approximately six weeks from your initial consultation another fitting with your fully constructed garment is performed.  At this stage we scrutinise the garments to ensure the perfect fit and finish. If required further tailoring can be made to the garment and final pressing is performed ready for your last fitting and collection.

If you are a first time client the process for a suit from Order to Handover can take between 10-13 weeks. A more accurate time frame can be given at consultation once cloth is selected. The time will vary depending on seasonal demand, cloth selection and any holiday periods both overseas and in Australia. We suggest booking your initial consultation at least 3-4 months before your Preferred finish date.

The selection is vast and includes cloths from the worlds best fabric mills. Labels available for selection include Scabal, Loro Piana, Marzotto, Dormeuil, Zignone, Cerruti, Vitale Barberis Canico, Reda and more.
