Groupon has some good deals on bespoke suits

 

@ Keith Lloyd Couture:

 

  • For $599, you get a bespoke couture suit custom-tailored with superfine wool from Holland & Sherry or Reda (a $1,900 value). Choose one of the following suits:
    • A men's two-piece suit
    • A women's pantsuit, skirt suit, or work dress
  • For $699, you get a bespoke couture suit custom-tailored with upgraded wool from Vitale Barberis Canonico (up to a $3,000 value). Choose one of the following suits:
    • A tuxedo
    • A men's two-piece suit
    • A women's pantsuit, skirt suit, or work dress

and 

 

@ Stephen Seo. Full bespoke suit including creating a fabric. Hell of a deal too, especially since they have a good reputation. 

 

 

  • $499 for a bespoke sports blazer (a $1,990 value)
  • $749 for a bespoke suit (a $2,190 value)

Sadly I'm almost broke because I just bought a suit from Suit Supply for $700 the other day.

I never heard of Seo, but his website claims that the bespoke suit is actually bespoke. It's doesnt say anyting about fusing though.

I am always suspicious on these kind of Groupon deals, especially for services provided. For example, Seo claimed that they put about 50 hours on each bespoke suit, if they charge only $750, and deducting the fee they pay Groupon (like 30 - 40% I believe), it's hard to imagine the quality can remain on the line.

According to this, items are made in HK and suits have roped shoulders and high button stance. But I guess since its bespoke, you can have them adjust these to your preference.

Groupon is mainly for getting the brand known (like Super Bowl ads, where they don't want to sell but increase awareness).

 

Anyways, I'm buying a suit soon but I don't know if I should get one from Keith Lloyd or Stephen Seo. Stephen Seo seems more shady, even though he created suits for the cast of Entourage. I'm leaning towards Keith Lloyd now.

 

Does anyone have any experience with Keith Lloyd?

 

Edit: Wow, the second I posted this, the Groupon for Keith Lloyd went down. Guess I'm going for Stephen Seo. Would like your opinions on SS.

I can't imagine any of these are truly bespoke. MTM surely. unless someone knows different as to how they do that? Bespoke in HK perhaps?

Dead on I think. If you actually decide it up, even if you ignore the groupon cut, it works out as paying themselves $15 per hour for that bespoke suit. If you're paying 50 cents or whatever per hour then maybe but agree with your comment about quality check.

Great point.

Tailor Dan, they are using Caesar Romeo Italian fabric collection or Royal Club collection (English), according to the comments. Are they of good quality? and which one is better?

Sorry to be utterly useless but have never heard of either. Maybe someone else has. Royal Club sounds like a collection rather than a fabric merchant. Have never come across and English fabric merchant of that name. Check and see if it is maybe just the name of that design of fabrics to choose from. And if so find out who the makers are.

If no more info to be got would go with an English fabric, because I know it more. An Italian would say go Italian. Most fabric in England is woven and finished in Yorkshire. But the wools are the same all over the world really.

I've handled a few Caesar Romeo fabrics and ime there's a huge spectrum of quality; the super 150s is better than a lot of zegna fabrics, but my friend had a MTM suit with some Ceasar Romeo that I wouldn't have paid $500 for. YMMV, but I'm guessing that the better fabrics will be available for a considerable premium, as hinted by the groupon details for seo.
post #4227 of 5082

Hmm, would I be better off getting http://www.jcrew.com/browse/multi_product_detail.jsp?GENERIC%3C%3Eedit_product_flag=true&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302030941&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524441798627&remove_cart_index=1&nav_type=PRMNAV&bmForm=persistent_shopping_cart&bmFormID=1331416959860&bmSubmit=edit_cart_item&bmUID=1331416959860 and getting it super tailored? The new Ludlow store that opened this March is easily accessible to me. The main question would be whether the Ludlow is good quality (for wear like once/ month, for college wear).

 

I want the suit to look like http://www.gq.com/style/wear-it-now/201006/xavier-samuel-models-cotton-suits-under-four-hundred-dollars?slide=1 in Slides 1-4. I mainly want it to look like slide #4; do you think that would be possible?

 

Thanks in advance for the possible insight. I'm trying to buy a suit because I need it in June and if I don't get the bespoke groupon (8 weeks to arrive), then I'm getting the Jcrew one.

Hope to come across them soon then. Anybody know of Royal Club?

i think the Ludlow is not so bad. it's fairly fitted compared to a typical off the rack, and i like the slightly shortened sleeves and length; you may find that it won't need much altering if you size down, as it already fits slim. but i think the price for $400+ jacket and $200+ pants is much too high. don't be fooled by the Loro Piana fabric, bc i think it's mostly marketing. i have one of their tweed blazers w fabric by the Moon Mill -- i find the construction rather mediocre, and while the fabric quality is high, it's not as good as the wool in another (more expensive) coat that i own sourced from the same mill. you should take a look for yourself, but i think you will find it to fall short of a $600+ sticker price. if you're really looking to spend that much (which probably isn't necessary for a college-age, 1x/month wear), you'd do better getting something much higher end that's marked down during sale season (and also end up with something that you'll likely wear for more yrs down the line).

I snagged two pairs of Incotex pants today at Daffy's that are not my size. They are a 34 waist and I would like to sell them to someone else in the NY area to avoid shipping.

Both are made in Portugal.

197

The one on the right is 100% wool and the one on the left is 55% wool and 45% cotton. Hard to tell from the pictures but the one on the right is a brown and the one on the left is a grey.

Let me know if there is any interest.

I'm looking for $63 for the blend and $73 for the 100% wool assuming it's not too much trouble to get it to whoever wants it.
