There's a French guy called Marc who does shoeshine at lunchtimes next to Bow church on Cheapside (a 2 min walk from Bank). £3.50 a pop. Edit to add - and you can pop in to Graham Browne tailors in Well Court (off Bow Lane) while you're at it.

Could you show us a side shot? I wonder if it's a bit short at the front.
Thought I'd resurrect this thread as I've picked up a length of Minnis Rangoon (0136) in their sale. I'd like to do something fun with it, and was thinking maybe a DB suit with patch pockets. Any other suggestions?

No minimum order at Sean O'Flynn. Starting price £165 iirc. He has some fantastic Loro Piana linen/cotton mixes at £205.

I've been in the MTM camp for a while (in the price range of Sims bespoke), and am thinking of moving to full bespoke.
