Two childhood friends have expanded their online tailoring business by opening a shop and studio in Lavenham - and have secured X-Factor judge Louis Walsh as a client.
Matthew McIntyre and Matthew Oxborrow, both 26, launched GBC (Gentlemen By Conduct) Custom Clothiers, in Water Street, specialising in custom, made to measure sports jackets, suits and shirts in the ‘world’s finest cloths’.
The pair honed the measurement and fitting process from a Savile Row trained, former-Prada tailor based in London.
They have already arranged a suit for Louis Walsh, which he should be wearing in the next month.
Mr McIntyre, of Ipswich, said they pride themselves on offering a ‘great service’.
Mr Oxborrow, of Stowmarket, added: “Specialising in custom clothing as opposed to being just another menswear shop allows us to close our doors and offer a truly exceptional service and experience to every single customer as he has our sole focus and attention.”
Upstairs is the gentleman’s lounge and custom clothing studio while on the ground floor they sell complementary items such as cashmere scarves, socks and ties as well as Lavenham quilted jackets.
Their clothes are produced in Europe and are sent within four weeks of manufacturing to the customer.
