Yes it is available We have relationships with fabric merchants all over the world. If you find a fabric you like let me know and I will see if we can find something similar
there is a similar fabric in a charcoal. It's a lightweight 8oz all wool cloth    I'd have to check availability
 I think you may be right, I think the description to the 638 actually belongs to the 639 which isn't there. I'll see if I can sort it out later today. I'll also have a look for some checks
I did some quick scans and put the range HERE You can order the standard suit or the full canvas version. If you buy two suits in the same order I'll upgrade you with the Japanese Bemberg lining and horn buttons for both suits at no extra charge
Received the first samples of the new summer suiting fabric range to be launched in July. They are a little more expensive but certainly even better quality than the current fabrics. Most excitingly for me, finally some great looking mid priced windowpanes     I love windowpane suits and there is a couple each in blue, black and grey. Don't know if I will pick just one or get one in each colour.   Pricings not finalised just yet but somewhere around $400 for the...
Tailoring in Asia can be inexpensive.However, many people think they can pop over to Asia and pick up quality suits for next to nothing, Sure, you can go to the markets and bargain to get a suit made for, in many cases, around $100 but what you end up with is a cheap mass produced fused suit in a dubious polyester fabric (no matter what they may have shown you in the store) that will start to fall apart from the first time you wear it. Good tailoring cost money no matter...
Perhaps a little. A suit jacket should just cover your backside. We suggest that the jacket should end level with your knuckles when your hand is resting by your side.   That said, there is a trend today to shorter jackets
Just updated the Huddersfield Cloth specials with a new range of fabrics.   These are beautiful fabrics and all the basic colours are there. Black, Charcoal, Grey, Navy and Blue.   There are even some beautiful Mohairs and even some s150's merino wool and cashmere blends   There is no doubt these English made fabrics are world class suiting cloths. We will import the cloth from the UK and have the suit made by one of our specialist bespoke tailors who will make your...
I've said many times that I'm happy for Elite Suits to remain a smaller niche retailer. There are already plenty of flashy websites with pretty pictures that will sell you a cheap mass produced machine sewn factory made fused canvas suits at a massive markup. It's not a market I really want to compete in, Rather than put huge amounts of money into massive marketing campaigns we prefer to put our money into making a better suit and grow slowly by letting customers see how...
Had the rare opportunity of seeing one of our Clissolds Suits in our "Almost Bespoke" tailoring before it was delivered to the customer.     A lot more pictures and details about this suit are available HERE   As I've said before customers who buy one of our specialist bespoke quality suits are more likely to buy again than any other customer once they see the value they can get for their suiting dollar. This customer picked up his suit and emailed me the next day...
