When I had a look at their shop last year, a lot of garments were made in Italy; the quality was good but more expensive then similar quality elsewhere. Since then, they have added more items based on what I have seen online. If you are looking for cashmere sweaters, have a look at Turnbull & Asser £195 or two for £300 (sleeveless £145 each or two for £200).
When I was looking for alterations tailor open on weekends found H. M. TTailoring. They altered four jackets for me: 2 from sleeves 1 from shoulders On a casual jacket shorten sleeve end & re-attach cuff. They are also available on sundays but appointment only. However; I have not used them since 2008. Recently I did give Cad & Dandy some alteration work when getting trousers made. Jacket altered from shoulders and coat from sleeve end.
Look at suit separates rather than paired jacket and trousers suit combo - this is allows you to get the best available jacket and trousers, and also helps reduce alteration costs
Single cuffs - prefer round but do have some square cuffs. Dislike mitre cuff Double cuffs - square only
TM Lewin, for size 52r there are four suits, the cheapest £249 http://www.tmlewin.co.uk/All-Suits/Mens-Suit-Bundles,en_GB,sc.html#http://www.tmlewin.co.uk/All-Suits/Mens-Suit-Bundles,en_GB,sc.html?prefn1=chestSize&prefv1=52%22
They look dark enough to seem black
Have you considered light grey and mid-grey in tropical wool. I think your normal work attire is fine. I was staying in the biz district in dubai last year & they have a bit more relaxed attitude to work attire due to the weather.. If I was there I would wear button down shirts with chinos or more likely tropical wool in light shades like light grey and tan. I would not wear a jacket on a daily basis.
I have over a dozen G&H shirts. They are good shirts but not at £125 each. They used to have shirts on sale for '3 for 2' when their shirts were £75-95 depending on cloth or 3 for £150. They used to have more variety in terms of style: sinle button cuff, two button cuff, sone casual shirts had buttonsin different positions, differrent collars, most shirts had subgle neck button but some had two. The current sale 2 for £150 is nit that great. Go ti Bicester Village £50...
I do not see an issue with, especially when you consider some people wear navy blazers all-year-round I have a dark brown sports jacket (quarter lined) that I do wear in the summer (spring and early autumn depending on weather). I can understand why people are against it very dark shades; however, consider if the cloth does not wear 'warm', combined with light coloured trousers (e.g. light grey, sky blue, tan ,etc) and a light shirt. Cloth is very important too, you...
Both not only have sales, but also have outlet shops at Bicester Village. What are you specifically looking for from the brands
