From Hollywood to Berlin
George Clinton’s strength in creating modern pieces with the perfect fit has made him one of the most sought-after bespoke menswear designers among today’s hollywood elite. Clinton offers a unique perspective from his extensive experience working as a designer, red carpet tailor, and style consultant for Hollywood actors such as Tom Cruise, Jason Statham, Zac Efron and other A-list stars.
For nearly two decades Clinton’s design studio has been in Los Angeles where he has created bespoke garments for distinguished clients, Hollywood heavy-weights, and celebrities. As a classically trained bespoke tailor, Clinton has combined craftsmanship with his talent for design to become the new face of bespoke tailoring.
After years in Hollywood, Clinton has set his sights on a new target: Berlin. With its individuality, grit, creativity, and diversity, it’s little wonder that Clinton was so immediately drawn to Germany’s capital of fashion. In early 2018, together with his husband and business partner Patrick Hasanen, he made the leap. He brings with him the highest quality of craftsmanship, a dash of Hollywood glamour and of course, the perfectly tailored suit.
In addition to menswear Clinton Bespoke will be offering select custom garments for women seeking a perfectly tailored couture cocktail suit, as well as a small ready to wear capsule collection. Stay tuned!
A bespoke suit is the ultimate in sartorial luxury, and whether it be single or double breasted, tuxedo or tailcoat, Clinton is a master of all styles. The Clinton Bespoke tailoring process combines traditional methods with a modern approach achieving a perfect balance.
Clinton knows his craft well, including the art of bespoke customer service. Whether it be at the client’s home, office or in the Clinton Bespoke atelier, the creation of each bespoke garment begins with a one-on-one consultation, during which fabric and style are chosen.
From there it can take as few as ten days until the first fitting.
Also on offer are bespoke shirts, coats, and shoes. And, with decades of editorial experience, Clinton also shares styling tips, guiding his clients with shoe to tie selection and everything in between. This all comes as an added bonus to create a refined look.
The foundation for his career was laid when he began work as an apprentice alongside the most renowned bespoke tailors in Munich. Afterwards, his talents earned him a scholarship in pattern-making at the exclusive JAK Fashion Academy in Hamburg where he was able to further perfect his craft.
From Hamburg, Clinton relocated to the United States where he began working in Los Angeles, in wardrobe departments of legendary TV shows. He then took his talents to Chicago and New York, where they were quickly recognized by prestigious fashion labels such as Armani, Sonia Rykiel and Jil Sander, all of whom trusted Clinton in leading their teams of tailors and seamstresses. And finally, from New York back to Los Angeles where Clinton Bespoke was born.
With combinations of rich colors, luxurious textures and weaves, as well as unique patterns, the possibilities are endless.
All cloths are hand-picked from mills around the world, and vary from Italian cashmeres to English wools and the finest Peruvian vicuña, as well as a wide range of textures and patterns that have been developed exclusively for Clinton Bespoke. Updated each season, the choices are always at the cutting edge of fashion and technology.
Keeping in line with a dedication to the highest quality and standards, Clinton Bespoke is proud to announce its partnership with the renowned cloth merchant, Scabal, of the world-famous Savile Row in London.
