AxlJack, Glad you appreciate my sense of humour. On a more serious note, if you are based in London, why not just pay both Suit Supply and Cad & The Dandy a visit and see what feels more suitable for you? I believe the person in charge of personal tailoring at Suit Supply (Vigo St) used to be a chap called Richard Finlay-Newton, and for CATD, there's James Sleater (aka Sleats on the forum) who's the owner of the business. Perhaps, it is more useful to speak to them in person, and see what garments they have on offer in reality, rather than trying to form a judgment based on pictures posted on the internet?

Exactly. Unlike purely online MTM businesses, which have their place undoubtedly, the above two actually have brick and mortar stores, so you can see the fabrics, talk to the people involved and really get an understanding of what they can offer you. Then you can decide either way.

Please do this - I think it would be helpful for quite a lot of people here (and I'd certainly be interested to read it). Perhaps an idea to make a new thread then, since it's now more a comparison of two suppliers rather than just about one.

So when did they say you could expect it by?[quote]
The suit is ready now, waiting for Turnbull & Asser to confirm my order with them is ready.

I spoke with James (co-founder of C&D) and he took my measurements, although John De Boise was present. On my visit to their City shop, there was a sales-women present; however, she was not involved with my order.

The lady in our city shop is in fact Vicky who is our 'operations manager'.

John du Bois, Ian and myself do measurements, we also have Nick who recently joined and worked for Timothy Everest, Richard James and Mr Boateng before us. Joseph Morgan also mucks in in Savile Row.

Now Macallan, I cant be sure you are who I think you are.... but if you are... We are ready with a fitting for you.

Does anyone have any experience of a Cad & The Dandy morning suit?
