I have never owned a car. I do, however, own 7 bicycles... but even with the expensive ones, one bespoke suit beats 1 bike.
I've never had any agony with bespoke. I took a while working out where I would go - looking at house-styles and the experiences of others - and considering my own financial situation and where I live and have to go for work reasons. I've been very clear what I wanted from day one, but at the same time had respect for those making the clothes. And they are highly skilled and competent people. As a result, I have a good relationship with my tailors. I'm not trying to get...
 I understand the obsession, but I don't see how anything that doesn't (or can't) fit you can be considered an amazing deal.
 Funds are not allowing anything at all for me this year, apart from things I've already commissioned and paid for... ... which luckily includes a three-piece grey flannel pinstripe! ;)

 And the jacket sleeves are fine too, it's the shirt sleeves that are 1/2" too long. Commercial shirts tend to come in 32" at the shortest. I take 31.5". I just can't be bothered to have any remaining shirts that I bought very cheap OTR altered. Sometimes I wear sleeve garters but not today. Yeah, I agree. I just slipped on the jacket over what I was wearing to take a quick picture. I was actually wearing a blue blazer with the striped shirt. As for the pockets, I just...
 RTC, I suspect you are going by the knuckle 'rule' - which is, as we all should know, not an accurate guide. I have slightly longer arms (and legs) in relation to my relatively short torso. This jacket covers my backside and the vertical balance (i.e. where the jacket ends in relation to my whole body) is perfect - you won't be able to see this from the photo however.  
Just collected this tweed jacket from Cad & the Dandy - fabric is from the Holland & Sherry Peacock bunch...       I hope you get the general idea, despite the bad picture exacerbated by the grey weather here today...
Not sure this is really an 'entry' because I haven't got a proper fit pic, but anyway it fits the theme and it was what I was wearing the other day at a friend's place: EG, Rugged Factory, Uniqlo + unseen crappy Levis bike jeans and oiled-leather boots by Slow Wear Lion. PS: it was 'Sunflower Sutra' I was reading at the time...
I've had private correspondance with both Andrew and Rory and they both seem like well-meaning people, people with whom I'd be happy to share a conversation over a glass of something. In this case, at the least it's clear that Rory was way out of his depth in business terms, and Andrew was overenthusiastic and as he says, naive.   Unlike some of you here, I don't enjoy online humiliation and shaming or think that there's something amusing about piling on to anyone for...
