Bespoke Joseph Abboud provides a new, elevated experience with custom tailored clothing made in the USA at the Joseph Abboud factory in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
The heritage-rich Joseph Abboud factory is the largest suiting factory in the United States. It utilizes premium Italian fabrics, and has the ability to deliver custom suits in under 21 days.
The Bespoke Joseph Abboud experience provides customers with a personal concierge service by video conference or in person by appointment. In person appointments will initially be offered in Northeastern USA, and ultimately nationwide. Appointments are booked through JosephAbboud.com.

Clients choose from the highest quality fabrics from Italian Mills including Marzotto, Reda, Zignone, Loro Piana, Zegna, Vitale Barberis, E. Thomas, and Angelico.
Finished garments will be completed in a three-week turnaround and hand-delivered by a Bespoke Joseph Abboud stylist, who will also guide a final fitting to determine any last adjustments.
Stuart Smith leads the brand as Head Stylist overseeing Bespoke Joseph Abboud. Smith joined after having run a highly regarded custom suiting business servicing top tier Wall Street firms.
“Our goal for Bespoke Joseph Abboud is to offer customers a distinct and memorable tailored concierge experience, from start to finish, with product being manufactured in the USA.
