Why One Forty One?
One Forty One was the first to focus on custom suiting, not just being a suit that you put on, but a suit
that is a reflection of the purchasers personality. From the fashion forward man, the flamboyant artist, and the conservative businessman who wants specific unique details, we focus on making sure the suit is a reflection of the wearers personality. One Forty One also focuses on the Bespoke lifestyle directing and curating there clients and stylish modern men to the coolest and the best in music, toys, media, and food & drink.
What Does Bespoke Mean?
be-spoke adj: said especially of clothes. Making or selling custom-made clothing. A bespoke tailor
The Word bespoke has its roots in Savile Row, where it refers to clothing made to a client’s exact specifications. Bespoke tailoring involves the creation of a unique pattern for each client, differentiating it form made-to-measure, which merely adjusts a standard preexisting pattern.
Does One Forty One have a flagship store I can visit?
Not yet, we are located in St. Louis, Missouri. We a currently scouting locations for our flagship store. We want to find a location that will best reflect our progressive style, but that also gives its respect to the old custom men’s store. In the meantime, a person can contact us either by phone or by email expressing interest. From there a representative from One Forty One will be contacting you to set up an appointment at your office, home, to a location of your liking.
