I highly doubt CM industry is able to provide anything like Geoffrey makes, especially concerning the fabric and methods of production. They have their own standards which are different from artisans.

 

We had the same kind of discussion before comparing m_moriabc and cm bespoke shoes, it's two different paths to take and follow.

 

And I think with proper approach Geoffrey's team can accept a bespoke order (however I don't know it for sure).

 

The worst thing here is measuring an item by its price though.

It is the styling that is different but I highly doubt the CM bespoke suits (especially the well regarded ones) cannot or does not have the same quality when it comes to constructing a suit. Bespoke has more to offer than OTR. You're paying for GBS because of style preference.

I hope I didn't come off as suggesting I was measuring by price by including the price that was quoted to me (which I didn't even ask for). I didn't even mean to compare GBS to bespoke tailoring in the first place, merely noting that his clothes that I saw at Darklands (and the stuff that he posts about on SZ, as well) seem to exist in a parallel world to much of their other stock, whereas many of the other designers are more easily relatable to each other.

Of course not, I was talking about the sales assistant.

^That's tame in comparison to similar boots I've seen from Balenciaga and Prada.

It's more the fact somebody has actually done that to them.
