It started in a studio off London Circuit, with Pip Morgan turning out perhaps one bespoke suit every month.
But now Braddon Tailors makes 15 custom suits a week for the well-dressed men of Canberra and Morgan is opening a retail store on Lonsdale Street.
He's also preparing for the launch of a ready-to-wear line in the next six months.
The new store is in a slim shopfront in the Ori building. "People can come in for that initial consultation where they look at all the fabrics to start with, they can get measured up ... and then come in here for fittings as well," he said.
The shop will also feature the Braddon Tailors' accessories label, Casa Pavone, a line of ties and scarves made from silk, hand-printed in England or made in Italy.
The off-the-rack label will feature basic suits to wear to work, weddings, the races and more.
Braddon Tailors began three years ago, and has grown quickly, often through word of mouth. The business is now so big, Morgan can't physically handle any more work himself.
"It's been me for the last three years and I've been fitting that in and around other work," he said. "But especially in the last six months when it's got massive, or it's been building and building and building, I just can't do it any more than I have been doing. So the store is the opportunity to go to that next level."
