One of my best fitting trousers are a pair of RTW Burberry casual...

Good day, started at Huntsmans for the 11:30 presentation and ended at Poole's. Gieves did a double tour (i. archive & history, ii. bespoke); however, because the tour overran missed the start of the Hand & Lock presentation at Dege (presentation was between 2pm - 4pm, I turned up at 2:40), no one else was there and it got boring after 3 mins. The houses could have organised the prestations timing better, there was too much lapse between start times.
Oscar Udeshi; however, you would be looking £220/+ for a MTM shirt - you can get bespoke for less money in London.
There is a difference in cloth quality from my older Gieves RTW to my last purchases (xmas '08). From what I have seen recently, there has been further decrease yet in the last year the prices have jumped. In terms of construction, I suppose if I examine the garments there could be a difference; however cloth and price in this case are more of a concern. I have varies RTW from Gieves: suits, shirts, sweaters, odd-trousers, tweed jacket, ties and a pair of shoes. ...
Good timing - my week off *plans visit* **emails Huntsman*
Gieves have started to charge silly money for their RTW; only purchase it on sale, with at least 33% discount. The garment quality has also decreased.
My guess, would be the same: 21.7.58 - the date, 21st July '58 2276/1 - customer number; 2276th customer, first garment BH - cutter's intials 926S - ???
Considering the environement, no. You should look at cotton/linen mix, probably with a higher % of the former.

Resole for RTW costs are normally about a third of shoe price, although with this can vary depending on the range and brand. Edward Green resoles are about 30% of the retail, although Barkers can be as high as 50% of the retail price. The last time I saw US prices for JL, they were between $1.1k and $1.5k; which makes $450 on par with costs plus shipping. ...
