The funny part is the suggestion that full bespoke from Gieves starts anywhere near as low as Â£1000.
You can not
get a bespoke suit from Gieves for Â£1000. As 'Not Ed Harris' says above, for bespoke from Gieves you would be looking at Â£2500 minimum
; more than that for better fabrics. You may be able to get MTM/semi-bespoke for Â£1000 or less, but that is certainly not 'full bespoke'.
Even from Souster & Hicks, who are cheaper than most Savile Row tailors (due to their main premises now being based in Woburn, so they avoid the high rents of the row), start at around Â£1400 for a coat alone
; I didn't ask the price for a suit but I expect it would be around Â£1800 or more.
I do not 'know it all', but neither do I spout rubbish on subjects I know nothing about. If you have no idea how much they cost then keep quiet instead of misleading people by making up a number on the spot.
(And that's not even mentioning the part about 'doubting' they use Loro Piana. I havn't been to Gieves in person, but I don't see why they wouldn't have Loro Piana fabrics available to them. Oh and you deserve another
for the bit about Loro Piana being "the best textile on the market")
