Well they charged me Â£700 to make my suit from cloth I supplied (Dashing Tweed, which Graham Browne do have but I managed to get a bit of a discount from the supplier). What I got was fully bespoke with the pattern hand-cut, basted fitting and two further fittings for the odd tweak here or there.
If you're going to be wearing suits for work every day you're going to need more than one. Ideally 5 or more (one for each day) and certainly no less than 3. Firstly, people will notice if you're wearing the same suit every day, especially if it's a good one (or a bad one) and secondly, if you wear it every day it's likely to wear out quickly. If it has a bit of time between wearings then it'll last a lot longer.
If your total budget is Â£1000, you might want to go for 4-5 suits from somewhere like SuitSupply instead.
