Also, I would stay away from Rakehell as some of my colleagues say that they're simply overpriced for what you get.
Blackstone Lewis dont appear to have a functioning website, so I wont comment on them as I have never heard of them before.
As for Dress2Kill, King & Allen and Rakehell. Well I know all of these companies, and know numerous people that have used all three of them.
Dress2Kill are a good company, and although they do not offer the 'bespoke' tailoring that they boldly claim, their made-to-measure tailoring is not bad for the money they charge. Colleagues that have used them have been happy enough with their service.
Nobody I have spoken to has a good word to say about King & Allen, but although they dont offer a great product or service they are certainly cheap (if not cheerful).
As for Rakehell, I think it may be a little unfair to discuss them in the same breath as the other two. As far as I am aware, they offer a Wensum suit (a la Richard James, G&H, Jasper Littman etc) and therefore to say they are overpriced at Â£450 seems a bizarre comment.
Colleagues that have used speak highly of them, but I have no direct experience with them myself.
