Lord Wetherill of Bernard Wetherill and Kilgour, Savile row tailor and statesman, died today aged 86: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6632713.stm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Weatherill
I'd always assumed that the stuff in the UK stores was a mixture of english, italian and other goods. I wouldn't be suprised if, for instance, the polos and jumpers are made in a far-off land.
I have to say that I'd always previously thought that anyone diverting from classic black tie looked awful, but I have to say I love this jacket. Not my size, though.

In Britain, Maine New England is an own-brand carried by the department store...

Slightly off-topic, but E&R RTW suits are very good indeed. They very often include two pairs of trousers, for instance. From about 550UKP. Another thing to bear in mind is that alterations on RTW are often free and of very high quality at these kind of places.

Outtakes from a 1993 comedy (see also parts 2-7) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXDR2HM2l3I Don't know the cancelled show, had never heard of Rickles, but the man is a comic genius.
