Made to Measure

Made To MeasureAlthough made to measure is the ultimate way to have a suit made, at certain times of the year long lead times have to be considered. If you need a quicker completion, please consider the “off the peg – made to fit” options that are available on all O’Three suits.

The three key stages to O’Three’s customisation Made to Measure process. There are many factors that need to be considered when purchasing a made to measure dry suit. However, certain build parameters must always be adhered to.

Types of diving and individuals perception of just how a suit should fit can vary hugely. O’Three will always guide and advise on how we feel a suit should be tailored and customised, but ultimately, it is down to each person.

To ensure this 100% customisation is achieved, we always insist, where possible a fitting is done before your suit is complete. It is at this stage any adjustments that need to be made to the fit of your suit can simply and easily be done with no compromise to the integrity of any seam. Exact position of all components, valves, pockets etc are then discussed and marked onto your suit.

This might seem like a long winded way but it works. We feel this is the only way you can truly achieve a genuinely customised suit.


As well as the full specification above, the cost of your suit includes many customising options, some of which are listed below.

A choice of:

  • Material Combinations
  • Customised Tailoring
  • Knee Pads
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Valve Options
  • Hose Options
  • Two Pockets
  • Reflective’s
  • Braces (if required)
  • Boot / Soft Sock

  • Choose Your Suit
    Stage 1
    Either online, over the phone or in the shop. Get measured, decide on materials, seal combinations and colour ways at this first step.

    If you choose to do any of the above remotely O’Three will always be pleased to guide you through this process. It’s not really that difficult as long as you remember some basic points as detailed in the measurement form section of this website. Please call if not 100% sure

  • The Fitting
    Stage 2
    This is the most important and critical stage of production. We know it’s a big ask, but it is at this stage, where every effort must be made to try and come down to our workshops here in beautiful Portland, Dorset, UK. We call this “a fitting”. This fitting date is given when you place your order.
  • The Completion
    Stage3
    After stage two, you will be given a completion date for collection or despatch of your new suit. Normally two working weeks after your fitting.

We have been working with manufacturers of Dry Glove systems and particularly Kubi so that they work perfectly with our neoprene wrist seals.

Due to various dry glove systems available and ways of fitting them to our suits please contact one of the team discuss the options –
+44 (0)1305 822820.

As with a front entry dry suit a hood attached system will tick some boxes, but will create one or two negatives.

Increased warmth and reduced flushing are the real benefits, however equalisation and neck seal setting is made harder.

Removal of the hood is obviously not an option when the weather improves.

There are several options available and you may have a preference, please call and we will be very happy to discuss those options in more detail –
