Exclusively for women in every sense

We are proud to have the leading in-house women’s custom clothing sales and design team in Chicago

Exclusively For You

Exclusively for women in every sense, our designers and tailors approach every woman’s clothing needs in a very personal and time-honored way.


Bringing a woman’s perspective to business and social attire, we will guide you toward the right cut, style, and detail to flatter both figure and fashion.

Hard-to-fit sizes

Hard-to-fit sizes are our specialty. Hand-crafted to fit right and flatter your individual shape, these will be your “go-to” garments for any occasion. Avoid the hassle, inconvenience, and disappointment of “off-the-rack” clothing.

Every garment is personally fit and is a reflection of your good taste and style

Just as we do for men, our master tailors create a pattern for you so that every garment fits comfortably and look great! We store all of your original patterns for future use and convenient re-ordering.

Our women’s design team truly understands fashion and the importance of fit and quality. We also welcome your ideas. Magazine clippings, screen shots, and sketches – we can make just about anything! Please note: We do not make or alter bridal dresses or formal gowns.

Erica was beyond frustrated in her search for the perfect wedding outfit.  She wasn’t a gown person and everything she tried on felt odd and didn’t embody her character. Then Erica discovered a place that makes custom wedding suits for women. The connection with Cathy at Richard Bennett was instantaneous.

Happy Customers

I had a HUGE smile on my face

“I can’t stress enough how happy I was with the final product from these very talented ladies. That final fitting where I got to see my suit in its finished state, I had a HUGE smile on my face. I received a ton of fantastic feedback at my wedding from guests on how stunning the suit looked. I firmly believe the hard work by Cathy and Vikki stole the show that day and I am so grateful to have had them!”

I simply can't buy off the rack

“I simply can’t buy off the rack due to my “unique” body type. I had tried my hand with a national chain and walked away with 3 pairs of slacks that didn’t fit to my specifications that were expensive and had to say “no” to the jacket. I was left to feel it was me and not them… Enter Richard Bennett. I now have a beautiful, custom made suit that fits me like the proverbial glove.”
Cheyenne B.

I would recommend them to anyone!

“Thank you so much to Cathy, Vikki, and the Richard Bennett Custom Tailors team for making my [wedding] day so special and perfect! I would recommend them to anyone!”
Erica C.

Features usually overlooked in women's clothing

“For anyone who does not have “off the rack” taste or a sample size body, Richard Bennett Custom Tailors delivers a quality product. I especially loved the inside pockets in my jackets, a feature usually overlooked in women’s clothing. Looking forward to my next outfit!”
AnneMarie M.

What a fantastic experience!

“What a fantastic experience! Cathy was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, and the tailor herself was awesome! They made me a suit EXACTLY to my specifications, and it fits my body perfectly! I am definitely returning to get another custom made suit.”
