I'm in the market for a bespoke Santa suit. I have been saving up for quite sometime. In the past all my other Santa suits have been OTR. I considered MTM but I decided to save one more season so I could get a true custom fit. Plus I would like to add the details only bespoke tailoring offers. Real fur trim, horn buttons, etc....

Any thoughts or suggestions on who I should use for this job, what materials I should use and why? I think I will also invest in a new pair of custom Santa boots from John Lobb. You should see the last they use for the elf shoes.

But the real question is.......
How wrinkly are they?

Does anyone know where Santa has his suits made? They look to be a particularly heavy wool. You wouldn't want anything lighter than 120's going up and down chimneys for sure. I'll bet he uses red LP Storm System in a custom weight. Nothing else would answer in that cold sleigh. I believe the boots are Ryders in black shell.

Although still under contract for promotional appearances, Santa is no longer involved in the day-to-day running of the business, which is now owned by International Happiness & Prosperity Enterprises of Guangzhou, China. Shortly after the business relocated the elves were purged as an "anti-progressive element", so elf-made Santa costumes are unfortunately no longer an option.

On the bright side, higher-end men's stores should have a new line of Santawear available in Fall '09, as IH&P has agreed to an exclusive design/licensing deal with Thom Browne.

Is it safe to assume that you have a figure that doesn't require any augmentation to look Santa-like? I wouldn't see the point of a bespoke suit that requires the insertion of a bowlful of jelly, to quote Mr. Moore.

This sounds like the sort of thing that Neiman-Marcus in Dallas would be able to assist with. They would probably enjoy the challenge of finding the right materials, a manufacturer, and offering it in their Christmas catalogue.
