The Perfect Dior Fit

The maison finally makes its Demi Mesure service available here

By Terry Christodoulou 01/09/2019

Few things in life prompt decent strutting like the tailored fit of a custom-made suit.

Enter our friends at Dior Homme – who this week are (finally) offering their ‘Demi Mesure’ service for the first time in Australia.

Don’t be confused by all the French here – ‘Demi Mesure’ a non-literal translation that relates to a selection of suits, shirts, blazers, pants, waistcoats and coasts from the brand’s permanent collections that can be nipped and tucked to a customer’s personal measurements (important for Dior as many still associate the masion with silhouettes a little, ahem, restrictive).

Available September 3-5 in the Sydney CBD boutique and 8-10 in Melbourne’s Chadstone, clients will have the opportunity to get their perfect Dior fit and experience this exclusive service offered overseas at 14 differing Dior boutiques.

Apart from the formidable selection on offer (some 300 suiting and coat fabrics, 100 luxury fabrics and 200 shirting fabrics) there’s also a number of options for shirt personalisation through a range of collars, cuffs, button plackets, hems and embroidered initials.

Shirts take around 6-8 weeks to receive while suits are around the 8-10-week mark, with approximate pricing of $950 for shirts and $5300 for suiting.

The event is by appointment only, so be sure to book your place via the boutiques stat.
