A modern house style drawing inspiration from British and Italian Tailoring tradition.
Garments are Made in Italy and designed to work in harmony with an Antipodean climate and lifestyle.
Soft, comfort-focused artisanal construction allows the wearer to feel effortlessly ennobled without restriction.
Our philosophy is that tailoring should be as much of a pleasure to wear as it is to look at.
All stores have Senior Made to Measure specialists, with a minimum of 10 years experience, who will work with you through the entire process.
Your consultation will commence with an Initial Fitting.
Your Crane Brothers Fit Profile is created using a set of comprehensive measures. It also takes into account such things as posture and height.
Your unique fit profile can then be used to create any of the wide range of garments that we produce from shoes to shirts.
After approximately* 25 working days, the garments are ready for a First Fitting, also known as a Tailor's Fitting. This is an opportunity to make any additional adjustments as well as finishing the garments.
Finishing includes such things as hems, working sleeves and small modifications for weight loss or gain.
We have our own tailors workroom and all work on the garments is managed by us.
After the First Fitting additional fittings may be required.
* Due to high demand at peak times of the season, we may require additional time.
In addition to our normal store hours, we also work on a By Appointment basis.

One of the biggest pleasures when purchasing a Made to Measure suit is choosing the lining. We use and recommend Bemberg Linings for their superior comfort.
Bemberg is a high-quality brand of cupro produced in Japan. Made from Cotton, it is light and durable with a silky touch.
Bemberg is also anti-static and anti-cling for added comfort. The advantage over a synthetic fibre is that it wicks sweat and humidity away from the body. Natural material means that this biodegradable fabric is produced from a renewable resource.
We are proud to announce that Crane Brothers has been acknowledged as one of the world’s premier shirtmakers and has been granted access to exclusive, limited fabrics as part of the Thomas Mason Icons cloth collection.
This collection pays tribute to the legendary style of Jermyn Street with a limited range of fabrics that bring original British looks from the Thomas Mason archive.
Originating from Kashmir in the 14th Century and favoured by rock royalty and proper royalty, Velvet is never really in or out of fashion.
Wear it how you want; beat it up or handle it with kid gloves; you'll always make a statement.
