 I was a customer of Adamo M for a while, four suits in total.  Lovely guy, and very skilled of course, but for whatever reason I was never totally happy with the process.  He doesn't seem to use a paper pattern that can be refined over time like "normal" bespoke.  So rather than eventually reach perfection I felt like each suit was starting over from scratch and counting on his expertise and eye for a great result.  I also found his cut/style to be a little...
I'd forgotten about Bijan . . . yup, would definitely add him to the list.  Haven't seen the steadystate shirts but will check them out.
OK, I'm bored.  Let's say that:   1.  Money wasn't a factor in the decision. 2.  You needed suits and shirts for the office or more formal social stuff. 3.  They had to be sourced in Australia . . . no flights to London or HK   Where would you shop? ______________________________________________________________   My list would be:   SUITS (Bespoke): B&Tailor, maybe JH Cutler though not sure his cut/structure is to my taste SUITS (MTM if I needed quicker...
Details of Ascot Chang trunk show?  They're going to be working out of Sheraton on the Park on Aug 4th and 5th.

Hi Gents, Can Romp or someone else explain the actual difference between a suit made at PJohnson and a suit made at Suit Shop?  Are they basically an identical product made in the same factory, etc, but just a different selection of fabrics and less hand holding in the process?  Or is there a significant difference like full canvas versus half canvas?   Thanks!     PS:  apologies if this has been covered already . . . tried to search but couldn't find anything...
          Thanks.  I do actually own some shoes that aren't black . . . but yes, the captoe fetish continues!
    Interesting.  I thought it was more that Tony and Dean of G&G used the AS facility/equipment for a period while they were establishing their business.  In exchange they helped AS develop the new lasts/styles which have largely driven the recovery in the AS business from near collapse.   I didn't think that AS actually executed the G&G RTW production on an outsourced basis.  Perhaps it is a fine distinction anyway.
Speaking of shoes . . . New Year's Resolution:  take better care of my work shoes.   Three hours of polishing later:      
    +1.  Definitely higher quality than Charles T or TM L.
