About George Clinton

George Clinton’s strength in creating modern pieces with the perfect fit has made him one of the most sought-after bespoke men’s wear designers among today’s Hollywood elite. George offers a unique perspective from his extensive experience working as a designer, red carpet tailor and style consultant for Hollywood celebrities and sports personalities such as Jon Hamm, Jason Statham, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Zac Efron, Rick Fox and many other A-list stars.

Originally from Germany, George’s life in the world of fashion began as an apprentice alongside the most renowned bespoke tailors in Munich. After receiving a scholarship to the exclusive JAK fashion academy in Hamburg he quickly caught the attention of the school’s owner. Impressed by his talent he was called upon to teach an advanced bespoke tailoring and couture sewing class.

George relocated to the US in 1994 where his master skills were quickly recognized by prestigious, high-end fashion boutiques in Chicago such as Jil Sander and Giorgio Armani in New York, where he led teams of tailors and dressmakers.

George currently resides in Los Angeles where he creates custom clothing for distinguished clients, Hollywood heavyweights and celebrities. His modern view coupled with his classical training has given him the ability to reinvent “bespoke” and shape it in a modern and approachable way.

OUR APPROACH TO MODERN SARTORIAL LUXURY

All suiting and shirt materials are selected by George and his creative team at his studio in West Hollywood, California. The finest cloths are handpicked from various mills across the globe varying from Italian tech cashmeres to the finest Peruvian alpacas. We also carry a wide range of cloths that have been exclusively developed for us. We visit bi-annual textile conventions to always stay up to date with international trends.

Creating a bespoke suit no longer means months long wait times and multiple fittings. Since everything is handmade by his team in West Hollywood the wait time can be as little as 10 days from conception to delivery.

A bespoke suit is the ultimate in sartorial luxury. Like creating the specs for a custom made sports car, nothing equals the feeling of wearing a custom made suit.

WHAT IS BESPOKE TAILORING

Our pieces are created with the client’s exact measurements and his involvement in every detail from material and trim selection. With over a decade of editorial experience, George also shares styling tips, guiding the client from shoe to tie selection. This comes as an added bonus to complete a refined look.

The tailoring process combines traditional methods with a modern approach. George works from scratch with every client’s measurements taking every varying posture and shape into account, remembering every detail for future orders. After choosing the fabric and discussing the style of the suit, the paper pattern is transferred on to the cloth, cut, and then prepared for the first fitting. This can be accomplished in as little as 3 days.

Clients trust our modern style and sleek silhouette. Paired with a luxurious merino wool, comfort will not be sacrificed. Perfect balance and proportion is achieved while enhancing the client’s best attributes.

At the first and generally only fitting George will inspect key points for any necessary refinements. Sleeve length, hem length, leg volume, neck point and cuffs. Each suit is numbered and logged, keeping track of materials, measurements and styles. The investment of a Clinton Bespoke piece should always be considered a lifetime investment and as a foundation for future Clinton Bespoke garments.
