Sumissura – Made To Measure Perfection

 

It’s time to start adding a light layer over the last of my SS18 wardrobe. The mornings are definitely cooler as are the early evenings. If you’re a regular reader, you will know how much I love a well-tailored blazer. I’ve been collecting them for a few years now (catch my blazer trail post here ) I’m featuring one today from Sumissura. A made to measure blazer just for me!

Sumissura – Classic – Timeless – Elegant

 

 I'm featuring here today a made to measure blazer just for me!

 

I’ve been watching the Sumissura brand on the media channels for some time now. Anything classic & elegant draws me in!

It wasn’t until I took a look at the website that my tastebuds popped up. Sumissura makes everything to order. Dresses, jackets, coats skirts, shirts and trousers. You choose your own materials and add your measurements, then you can see your creation, how it will look. I played on the site for ages!

On choosing the blazer there are so many options. Button style, four or six? How many buttons on the sleeve? Single breasted or long breasted? Long bodied or shorter length? Even down to the lapel style.

 

 

The Sumissura brand is not at all pricey either. From £99.00 for a made to measure, I did wonder when I ordered my blazer if the quality would be top notch? I kept checking what everyone else was wearing from the brand and it all looked so good.

 

The Design Process

 

 I'm featuring here today a made to measure blazer just for me!

 

This is how it works. You choose the item of clothing and then material. Then a few measurements are asked. height, weight and age. The brand also asks what type of frame you are, right into bust measurements and sleeve length. The measurments are all stored in your profile for futher ordering too.

 

Perfect tailoring for petite like me or the taller than average woman

 

 

This is fantastic for petite me! I’m 5’2 but Sumissura take all measurements to provide the best fit and if you’re taller than average it will work wonders for you too! They cater to men in the same way, on the brother site Hockerty. Delivery is swift considering, from ordering it only took fifteen days. Handcrafted and tailor-made for you in such a short space of time. Delivery is free on orders over £75.00 too

My Sumissura choice

 

 I'm featuring here today a made to measure blazer just for me!

 

I chose my blazer to have a thicker lapel ( Peak Lapels ) double-breasted, a shorter style blazer (you can choose the desired length) with light coloured buttons six to the body and three on each arm. The material is called Jaquey, although I was very tempted by either a linen or Alder. a gorgeous Tan hue, for that Tan obsession that I have! But I decided on the Jaquey material because I think it will mix with literally anything.

 

 

When the blazer arrived I was really impressed! The fit is perfect as is the sleeve length. I always wear my sleeves a little ruched up, so you will have to trust me on that one. I so wished I had thought about that! Sleeve length is such an important aspect of this story I think, I’m always having to turn my sleeves under. But you will be seeing this blazer styled in different ways on my Instagram, including sleeves down. I promise!

I would normally wear this jacket undone too but I wanted to share what a perfect fit the blazer is. I’m over the moon and as I said about the quality? Just look at the close-up shots!

 

A special location!

 

The photos for the blazer were shot at a special location that I will be sharing with you soon. It’s been on TV and in the papers. I’m looking forward to telling all!

I’m absolutely thrilled with my blazer from Sumissura! Do check out this fabulous brand!

    I’m amazed at the price! It looks fabulous!

    Ohhhhh I love the idea of this and of course, you look as gorgeous as ever. Love the over all look so much. I really struggle with clothes as I was blessed/cursed with an ample bosom. This means that I always have to size up to get those bad boys in, therefore making the rest of my fit a little shapeless. This could be a great solution for me. Thank you so much for sharing.

    That blazer looks good on you and with those pants. I haven’t worn blazers since I was a teenager. I went through a blazer faze back then. It was the 90’s lol. Blazers are very nice though and add a great elegant and sophisticated look to any outfit. On a side note though, I was in #mixitup linky and I couldn’t click your link to this post. I think the link is broken or something. I clicked on your first post and found this post but the link in the linky isn’t working. Just thought you should know that:)

    At 5 ft 4 I’m two inches taller but often find that things don’t really fit well and feel a bit dwarfed in things. I either get excess fabric on the back waist because they are cut for taller people or dresses and skirts hit an unflattering length on the leg. Most stores base their clothing on 5 ft 8 people so for me that’s an extra 4 inches of fabric and for you an extra 6!.

    The jacket looks great and whilst I couldn’t normally afford that I’m book marking it for special occasions.

      Hi Em. Yes you must bookmark it! I liked the idea of choosing different lengths for a blazer. I would like to try a longer version too as they are so on trend at the moment. I know how it feels to not find a great fit too. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you return xx

      Thanks Maria. It’s so hard for me sometimes when trying to find the right sleeve length. Petite is too short and normal is too long! This is a perfect solution for me! xx

  21. September 5, 2018 / 9:40 am

    Love, love, LOVE this blazer and the concept. It’s made to measure and it shows. Being a shortie I invariably have trouble with jacket arms; I roll up, I fold up and I sew up but sewing becomes a real challenge with the three button feature. In fact I bought a white linen blazer two years ago that I haven’t worn because of the 3 button detail, it seems a shame to lose such stylish tailoring but to have them taken up professionally would cost almost as much as that £99 price tag so that brand starts to made huge sense. I just may treat myself in a few months time …
    Gosh I’ve rambled so clearly you’ve touched on something I’m passionate about! Love the styling here, neutrals together floats my boat too. Love your choice of fabric, what a wardrobe workhorse that blazer is going to be.
    Hugs my beauty x
