I've said many times that those that actually buy a suit from Elite Suits are very pleased with the quality for the price. We've been in business now for over 5 years. In that time we have moved into high end fabrics and hand stitched suiting. That makes our average sale price far above the average of other online suit retailers and some of our suits can sell for over $2,500. After five years, if we didn't live up to our promise of supplying great suits at value for money...
In his post above Riva implies that he is not entirely happy with the quality of his fabric. I have another customer who has expressed a similar sentiment.   Both have one thing in common. They were after a particular pattern that was not in our large range and we sourced their fabric from an outside supplier. In Riva's case we found the pattern from a US based distributor. While not as expensive as out English bespoke quality fabrics I don't mind sharing it wasn't a...
I've never been a fan of factory made mass produced machine made suits. For the last three decades I had my suits hand tailored even back in the days when hardly anyone travelled to Asia and having suits custom made overseas (at that time I was using a tailor in Singapore) was considered exotic.   The few times I've bought mass produced suits my experience has been that they look fantastic when brand spanking new but deteriorate quickly. The cheap fabric shows signs of...
The Milan/Almost bespoke package is great for someone looking for a suit far better than what you would pick up in a store but not prepared to pay $3,000 or more for a true bespoke suit. Those who buy one the Almost Bespoke/Rockstars & Royalty tailoring package come back and reorder more than any other suit we sell. That's why we put together such a great deal to tempt them to ordering their first English fabric suit. However, somebody who is going to spend $1,000 or more...
One of the things I like the most about the suit business is getting emails from satisfied customers. For people to take the time to email just to tell me how much they like their new suit is always appreciated. So opening my first email of the day was a pleasure Once again a good result from someone who has actually bought something. Word of mouth and repeat business is why Elite Suits keeps growing
Of course, for those who want a good workhorse suit there is a good range of s120's in the Huddersfield cloths at the same great price  
I'm not a fan of "s" numbers when it comes to trying to assess wool quality. It only tells you the thickness of the wool and nothing about the real quality of the fabric. I think the wool producers go through the bale looking for the thinnest strand they can find then label the whole bale based on that, I see suits in stores labelled s150's wool and the fabric feels like canvas.   However, when you come to the top quality English & Italian wools it's a different story....
 Gavin from Huddersfield Cloth rang me last night from the UK to tell me more about this exceptionally high quality English wool. As far as he is concerned it's the best special ever offered by Huddersfield cloth and at less than $1,000 for a fully hand stitched suit he expects we to sell plenty. I had to disappoint him that after five days on the site nobody had purchased one yet. He was a little shocked
Huddersfield Cloth have just announced a special on a limited range of their s100 Lindley fabrics. This is a great English cloth. At around the 10oz mark it's a three season cloth and a durable fabric that will almost last forever.   We have added the range to our Huddersfield Cloth specials so you can buy a fully hand stitched suit made by our specialist bespoke tailors for only $999 (USD$940). Don't forget that you can also add the Milan Special for only $199 extra. So...
Every morning at 2am. By 4pm I'm a wreck for the day
