I think this is worth trying to compile, but the best way to do so would be using some kind of poll...
Back from the dead... I was in London a few weeks ago and bought a suit at Aquascutum (I size 40). I also tried the Kingsgate and the Fairmount trench coats. For the Fairmount, I was advised to take 1 size up, whereas for the Kingsgate (the full size db one), the size 40 worked fine. I didn't buy it then but am thinking about it now.
All, Would you know of a good tutorial on what an Italian cut v. English v. French, etc, might look like? Many thanks, JD
The description says "Italian cashmere, knitted in Scotland"...? Many thanks! JD

Hi, Could someone explain to me what goyser sewn means, and how it relates to Goodyear and Norvegian? Also, I'm having difficulties understanding the various Vass lasts. U and F are clear enough, and I'd love some explanation on the other ones (Budapester, New Peter, Banana, etc). Many thanks! JD
All, I'm considering getting a pair of semi-custom shoes. To help me circle on what I want exactly, I'd like to try drawing various ideas. Does anyone know if there are Oxford and Derby templates / outlines one could print and use to try out a few ideas? Many thanks, JD
I ended up buying a charcoal suit at Aquascutum. It has a nice English line (to my eyes), and more important fit my body better than the other I tried on at M&S or G&H. Also bought a couple shirt + 1 tie from T&A, and a pair of C&J shoes. The exchange rate is slightly advantageous to Euro holders right now.
Shoes & shirts are a given. For the suit I am less interested in absolutely authentic design as I am in very good quality & fit & finish. By "classical", I meant something that is not fantasy - something that can be worn with elegance in a business environment. I'm in Paris so I could get the suit altered and shipped to me.
Hi all, I will be in London this W-E and am in need of a good suit (and I cannot wait for bespoke, semi-custom, etc). Would someone with some experience of the City advise me on a good place to buy a very good classical (i.e., business) suit? I've been advised Gieves & Hawkes, and I'm trying to add a couple (or more) names to this. Many thanks! JD
