Wait, you found this at THAT store? Holy cow. I've been in there dozens of times while visiting my in-laws.
They cut a slit all the way around the sole, stitch the sole on the goodyear machine with the stitches down in the slit channel, and then go back and glue/iron the channel back down so it's hidden.
^ WOW! Looks fantastic! Welcome back. Any pics of the Thrift Lift or O3 chamber yet?
Email Steed, ask about their travel schedule for the next year, and tell them what you're interested in and when you'll be in London. Their site says they make at least 3 trips to the US each year; if they hit Nashville each time, you might be able to use the London trip as the initial appointment and catch them back home for subsequent fittings.
Where do you live? Do any of the Row tailors visit where you are, or anywhere close, regularly? I don't know if Row tailors are set up to do a whole suit in the space of a short visit, like some of the Asian tailors are. And skipping fittings probably isn't a good idea at all for your first suit with any tailor. If you're going to be there for a couple weeks, you could find out who might be willing to see you at the beginning of your visit, and have at least a rough basted...
Yeah, I was gonna say this, but G beat me to it. There's a variety of cuts on the Row, but Huntsman and Gieves are some of the most severe and military-esque.Anderson & Sheppard (and their descendants like Steed, Thomas Mahon, Steven Hitchcock) are on the soft end of the spectrum. Not soft like Neapolitans, but much less built up and structured than the military tailors.
Label shape and typewritten script on the bottom would be right for A&S, but all the A&S labels I've seen have writing much closer to the top edge than this one. That's not conclusive, as they've changed their label format a lot over the years. But if I had to guess, I'd say not A&S. Definitely SR or influenced thereby, though.
I've never had a store and have always had the 10-day option, I think.
I've looked at that thing six ways from Sunday and I can't see anything but blue. Some goldish/bronze hues in the black, yes, but never any white.
