The bar is being continually raised in the online made to measure/custom suit market. New entrants have less room for air than they did one and two years ago. Customer service has to be attentive and effective, delivery has to be prompt, websites have to be easy to use and the suits have to be at least reasonably well made and fit well. For a new company or for someone just getting into the business keeping all of this in line can be daunting. And as you can imagine, some do it better than others.
Fortunately, for Frank De Jackmo of Point Click Tailor this is not all new to him. Although Point Click Tailor is only a few months old, Frank has been in the business and working with his factory for a few years. He cut his chops with Greywell Tailors doing in person fittings for clients in northern New Jersey and New York City. Which in my opinion has given him an advantage over some of his peers. As evidenced by the suit that he sent my way for review.
After talking on the phone Frank and I agree upon a review on a three piece suit. If a company offers 3 piece suits I prefer to review those because it allows me to see how they handle all potential pieces of a suit. Point Click Tailor’s suits range from $525-695. I chose the medium blue pinstripe suit, the Bronx ($695). The details for which are as follows:
Jacket: 2 button, peak lapel, hacking (slanted) pockets, side vents, Milanese lapel buttonhole, 1/3 lining, functioning sleeve buttons (at Frank’s request), 3.9″ lapel width, high gorge, half canvassed.
Vest: notch lapel, 5 button, lining for back fabric, 2 pockets.
Pants: no belt loops, side tabs, no cuffs, suspender buttons, no pleats, extended slide tab closure.
I should note that if you are ordering from Point Click Tailor and there are things you want to change or specify about your suit that are not available on the website you should email Frank at FDeJackmo@pointclicktailor.com. As some things are available by request only.
The customization process on the site was pretty standard. That is, easy to use and understand. Options were plenty, thankfully. Anyway, let’s get to it.
In summary, I am very happy with this suit. It is certainly one of the best ‘first try’ suits I have had made. Both in terms of fit and general quality. The quality of fabric and construction of the suit are both on point for the price of the suit.
There were a few things where Frank suggested slight changes in my measurements based off of how his factory’s system works. And he was right, thankfully. Which is good to see, it means that he understands how his factory works. Although I do wish the gorge was slightly higher and the buttoning point slightly lower. I can’t really find anything to fault them on on the construction side of things though.
Do I recommend Point Click Tailor? The answer to that is a resounding yes. PCT was able to honor all of my requests (ie my high maintenance tendencies) well and with very little error. I do wish they had a wider selection of fabrics, including some more seasonal offerings. But PCT is certainly off to a good start and I Frank has told me they have some good things in store, which is always good to hear. I look forward to watching the brand develop and mature. If you are in the market for a suit, give their site a browse. If you have any questions, comments or experience of your own with Point Click Tailor please feel free to sound off in the comments.
Note: FYGblog did receive the suit being reviewed for the purpose of review. As always, the utmost effort was taken to maintain and unbiased perspective on the brand and its product(s).
Looks good Justin. Well done to PCT.
Finally an online MTM suit with wide lapels! Everyone seems to be making thin lapels which I cannot stand. I noticed that you can specifically request wider lapels. Awesome.
It would be nice to a see a shot with the jacket off to show off the suspenders though.
Also, what is a ‘high gorge’? Is this where the peak of the lapel sits on your chest/shoulder?
Yes, it is nice that PCT can do wider lapels. Other makers such as Black Lapel, Dragon Inside and Knot Standard can also do that, as FYI. the gorge is where the collar and lapel meet.
Hi Justin, the suit certainly looks good for the money. Is the wool Chinese or Italian manufacture? Is it Super 110 or finer ? Also is the chest piece floating or fused? Keep up the good fight for sourcing reasonably priced custom apparel. We are just starting to see some of this in Australia with the recent rollout of some full body scanning booths. Regards, Geoff .
Sorry for not clarifying, I will add to the post, this jacket is half canvassed. I believe the fabric is milled in china. Regardless, I would certainly say its good for the money. And the fabric is pretty nice, certainly on point for the price. Nice to hear from you and glad that things are starting to improve down in Australia.
Justin, that’s a wonderful suit. Though you say the buttoning point could be lower and the gorge higher, I actually think this looks the best on you of all the single breasted peak lapel suits you’ve reviewed.
How’s the shoulder padding on PCT? Is it lightweight similar to Black Lapel?
And is the Milanese lapel buttonhole a standard option?
The milanese buttonhole is something you have to email them to request, I do not think it is an added cost. The shoulder padding is pretty similar between PCT and BL, both are pretty light.
Thanks for the quick reply. It great they have milanese buttonhole as option especially from an online MTM company
I want to order for suit, how do I go about it
