Congratulations! You’ve popped the question, it’s been answered in the affirmative, now what?
That’s where Ernesto’s Custom Clothier comes in to navigate the choices and decide on the perfect outfit for you, your groomsmen and any other members of your wedding party who want to celebrate with you on your big day.
Since 1960, our family has been providing the finest custom-tailored attire for every kind of celebration big or small, from dream international destinations, to beach nuptials, to city or country locales, and even the current trend for micro weddings where the guest list is necessarily limited. No matter the size and scope of your unique celebration, we will tailor your attire from the traditionally elegant morning suit (royal wedding-style), to classic or contemporary tux, to a modern suit, or even a relaxed linen look for a ceremony at the beach or in the tropics.
Our process begins with a discussion between you and our resident expert and Ernesto’s owner, Ed DeSumma. Ed will help you realize your dream wedding outfit by asking you some key questions to help guide you to the best choices in terms of fabric, fit, styling and color for your big occasion. To start the ball rolling, please contact Ed at 609-315-9992 or by email.
You will be cordially invited to an in-person appointment with your significant other (observing all safety measures), to select the latest fabrics from our large selection of the finest European mills. We even offer a colorful array of lining fabrics, buttons and buttonhole thread colors if you would like to coordinate your attire with the color theme of the bride’s gown and that of the bridesmaids.
If you prefer, we can arrange for a virtual appointment to discuss fabric selection and mail samples to you for approval.
And don’t forget, the formal photographs, informal selfies and even guests’ cell phone videos will record a lasting visual memory of the occasion, and it’s important to dress the part and have fun doing it.
Perfect Fit Guarantee
Once you have selected the fabric for your wedding ensemble, and for any additional garments you may need for the rehearsal dinner and the honeymoon, we will take the appropriate measurements for tailoring and alterations to ensure a perfect fit. This is our secret weapon at Ernesto’s – our perfect fit guarantee which takes away any anxiety about the process. We will also advise you on the best styling options for your garments to truly personalize your attire for the occasion.
Our process will involve an additional fitting to ensure that perfect fit, and a final try-on. Your clothing will be expertly fitted, pressed and delivered in a signature Ernesto’s garment bag for safety until the big day.
