Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. FIRST FITTING
We do private fittings by appointment only in downtown Phoenix and Gilbert, you can book here. First fittings take about an hour to an hour and a half in total. This is where we take your measurements and use a try on suit in front of a mirror to pin it to your desired fit. Using your unique measurements, shoulder and posture pitch, and combining that with finished measurements on a sample suit, we achieve a precise fit on the first time.
During your fitting, we talk you through the design process where you get to choose all the options on your suit, shirt, or coat such as fabric, construction, pocket style, lapel style and width, inside lining, buttons, etc. We don’t expect you to know all of these details before your visit so don’t feel overwhelmed with the choices. We’ll discuss your needs of the suit and simply guide you from that point to help make these decisions. We make sure this process is fun and painless for you. Feel free to bring any ideas or pictures you might have in mind.
3. SECOND FITTING
When your suit gets back 4-8 weeks* later we’ll contact you to schedule your second fitting. This fitting takes about 15-20 minutes. You’ll try the suit on for the first time and we’ll take a look to make sure it fits and feels the way it should. Most times it is good to go. On occasion we’ll need to make minor changes and will have it finished in a few days to a week. Then it’s ready for final pick up. *Time depends on where we order from. Most orders are 4-6 weeks.
4. ORDERING MORE
After your first garment is made, we have your pattern on file so ordering is quick and easy. Any appointment for additional garments takes as long or as short as you need to choose your details.
COLLECTIONS & PRICES
We offer 3 lines of custom suiting
MAGRO Primary – Suits starting at $995
This is our main line of suiting. Made in a third generation workshop in the mountains of Portugal. The suits have the perfect European finish to them – lightweight structure, soft curves around the edges, and a slim silhouette all at an amazing price. We only use high quality fabrics milled in Italy or England on these suits from well-known mills like Loro Piana, Drago, Vitale Barbaris Canonico, Reda, Dormeuil, Zegna, and more. These suits are made with a full canvas, never fused. The suits are made with a mix of handwork and machine to create the best suit for your dollar. Comparing suit to suit, dollar for dollar with our competitors, we found we charge close to half of what they’re charging. We run a small operation and have very little overhead to be able to pass the amazing pricing on to you. Plan for 4-6 weeks.
MAGRO x ITALY – Suits starting at $2195 | Shirts start at $240
These suits are made by hand in a small workshop in Tuscany. Here the tailors use traditional Italian construction methods to create a beautiful, soft, lightweight finish that only the Italians can do. The fabrics we use are sourced out of Italy and England from well known luxury mills, like Loro Piana, Zegna, Reda, Drago, Holland and Sherry, Scabal, Dormeuil, and more. All suits are full canvas, never fused. They are all of course made custom to your measurements with several options for lapel/pocket styles, buttons, linings, canvas and shoulder constructions, and more. We only use Japanese bemberg lining on these suits, creating the most breathable, comfortable suit possible. These suits are comparable to the top-end suits being sold in luxury retail stores for $5-7k – and those are off-the-rack. So for a better price, a custom fit and details, you’re getting a much better suit. We’ll talk you through all the options to create the best suit for you. Plan for 6-8 weeks.

We take care of any alteration costs to your custom garments when they’re finished. We’ll only charge when the alterations are based significant change in weight/build. We only make alterations to MAGRO garments, no outside garments.
We carry fabrics from the suit world’s favorite mills – Loro Piana, Dormeuil, Scabal, Ariston, Reda, Cerruti, Drago, Carnet, Vitale Barbaris Canonico, Guabello, and more. While we do carry some fabrics milled in the UK, we mostly carry Italian fabrics because the Italians have mastered the lightweight, warm-climate fabrics. Whereas the majority of mills in the UK specialize in relatively thicker, heavier fabrics made for colder weather. We carry specialty travel fabrics that are perfect for any occasion – they are extremely wrinkle resistant, water repellant, with a little stretch. High performance for your work trip, destination wedding, or everyday work. Please reach out with any questions you have on our fabrics!
