The process

Made To Measure Process

The E Nolan made-to-measure process is a three fitting process. In your first fitting with Emily, you will discuss your desired suit / trouser / jacket fit, select fabric, and then Emily will take all body measurements and put you in some try-on garments to decipher your fit, taking into account style choices, posture and build.

Before your appointment feel free to jump on our website to take a look at our ready-to-wear collection of shirting and knitwear, made in all natural fibres in limited quantities here in Melbourne. These garments are also available to purchase during your appointment. If you would like to, although it’s not necessary, you can send through any inspiration images of colour, fabric, fit ahead of the booking so we have a sense of what you’re looking for and can prepare for your appointment.

Booking Your Appointment

All E Nolan made-to-measure fittings are conducted at The E Nolan Dressing Room.

We are located on Oxford St in Collingwood, Melbourne. There is paid meter two hour parking available on Stanley St and around the adjacent side streets.

First Fitting

One hour will be allocated for your first fitting. Appointments are limited to 30-35 appointments per month so first in best dressed.

We have selected 600+ beautiful different fabrics from Italy, United Kingdom and Japan for you to choose from. 

Your own made-to-measure pattern is drafted based from your full body measurements. We have our in-house try on garments, which allow Emily to assess figuration, posture, and stance. Our try on garments also assist with decisions surrounding how you like your clothing to fit on the body. We have samples of different lapel, pockets, cloth, lining and buttons.

Payment is taken in full, upfront upon the conclusion of the first fitting. Also at the conclusion of your first fitting a time will be booked in eight weeks ahead for your second fitting.

Second Fitting

Scheduled for eight weeks later. At the second fitting, you will be able to try on your almost completed garments and make additional adjustments. Second fitting alterations are performed in a timely manner in-house. Our workroom is on the second floor above The Dressing Room. These alterations are included in your initial payment. Second fitting appointments are flexible with after hour appointments available to work around your schedule. 

Final Fitting

The time frame between the second and final fitting is roughly one week. We do not outsource any of our alterations so we are always able to complete them in a timely manner for you.
