The Vonella Clothing Experience

This is not off the rack.

This is clothing made for men and women, by hand.

This is much more than a suit.  It is an experience.

For decades, the modest setting of the Vonella Clothing Tailor Shop has been a fixture in the heart of little Italy in Windsor, Ontario and a home of an enduring team of exceptionally talented tailors.

Mike Vonella continues to foster lasting relationships not only through the clothing he fashions but in the experience that manifests.

It’s inherently rare when one can have something constructed to their precise specifications and discriminations.  From the moment the doors open to his shop, to the time you slip it on for whichever occasion, you will sense the difference.

Choosing a Fabric

You will choose a style that is centred on how you hope to or are inclined to wear your clothing.  Mr. Vonella will guide you through the array of premium swatches in search of the appropriate fabric -weight and pattern-that unearth your personal appeals.  Inevitably, this, the most daunting phase – to envision a 5×7 swatch come to life in the form of a magnificent garment, specially made for you.

All measurements are taken, expertly.  With his support and with your input, the detail of the garment design is mutually established.  Every box is ticked: flavour of linings; size and shape of shouldering; lapel variations; pleats or cuffs; silhouette; and, pocket styles.  It is thorough and in line with your disposition.

Crafting the Pattern

He will craft your pattern – a pattern that will live on at his shop in anticipation of your next visit.  He will cut and create your suit, by hand.

A follow up appointment is made where the suit, suspended together by its proverbial threads, is ready for fitting.  During this meeting, adjustments are defined and alterations made for the final presentation.
