HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
We operate by appointment, at your home, office or our new showroom in Royal Oak, MI.
To request an appointment, please complete our contact form.
We need to truly understand how your clothing needs to perform in order to make proper recommendations. We will then walk you through the process, from measurements and fabrics selection, to the final accoutrements.
In about 4-6 weeks time we will contact you to schedule your fitting. Adjustments are marked and completed locally. After this meeting, you can expect your clothes finished and hanging in your closet within 2 weeks.
We then have your pattern and re-ordering is straightforward. Making changes to your pattern is simple. The system works in the same way for shirts. From here, we lay out a clear plan to build your perfect rotation, solely based on your needs and lifestyle.
Whether you need a complete wardrobe overhaul or are simply adding a beautiful summer jacket, we always begin the same way. With a single suit or sport coat with accompanying trousers. Reason being, fit is everything. We build an individual pattern for you, to ensure an exceptional fit. Once your pattern is set, we can add at will.
WHAT MAKES JOSHUA GOLD DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CLOTHIERS?
If you asked a current Joshua Gold client about us, they would tell you that we’re the honest and straight forward clothier. We know what you should have in your closet, and what you can live without. We believe that you should be wearing and enjoying every single piece in your closet. You should enjoy putting on your clothes every day, and that is what we do for our clients.
We believe the relationship one has with their tailor is important. We educate our clients on the best ways to build depth and balance to their wardrobe. This begins with adding foundational pieces and really understanding why we’re adding each and every piece. A closet full of clothes that never get worn is a waste of money. We encourage our clients to slow the process down and carefully, over time, build their ideal wardrobe. We approach building a wardrobe with thought and care. We discover most client’s tastes and preferences change and develop as a result of them improving their understanding of each piece we add to their closet.
WHAT ABOUT ALTERATIONS?
The cost of alterations are included in the initial purchase. We only charge for alterations when it’s a result of a significant change in build. Our clothing allows for a weight fluctuation of 15-20 pounds.
WHAT IS A CANVAS AND WHY DO I NEED ONE?
A canvas gives a jacket shape and body. A canvas is made of a blend of horse hair, cotton and linen and is cut to proportion and carefully sewn between the front panel and facing of our jackets, offering the highest level of structure. This canvas makes the jacket more flexible, provides more structure and durability. It allows your jacket to fit better over time as the warmth of your body molds the canvas to your shape.
We stand behind every garment that we make for our clients. We are not satisfied until you are. If there is an issue with something that we made for you we will fix it or replace it at no charge. Of course, if you decide to become a world class body builder and gain 50 pounds, unfortunately there are no magicians in our shop. We have a great deal of pride in our work and your complete satisfaction is our only goal. We are here to serve.
