Hello all   I am based in London and have been following this forum for awhile.  I have however only just registered.    This forum has been an absolute treasure trove of information, that has helped me make informed decisions as I took my first tentative steps into the world of bespoke suits and shoes.   To all the posters that have so generously shared your knowledge - many thanks!
