Graham Browne bespoke in City of London
Styleforum Top Picks
Also in the area at a similar price there's a tailor in Leadenhall Market (but I'd steer clear as he often seems to stand in the doorway trying to drum up trade), and Castle's (in Castle Court, a small lane off Cornhill). To the best of my knowledge, both of these tailors charge around Â£800 for a two-piece bespoke.
A little more expensive would be Couch & Hoskin, or Thresher & Glenny. I think they both start at about Â£1200, but T&G are currently doing 20% off bespoke if you pay upon ordering. Fox & Sons on London Wall also offer some form of bespoke service, but I don't know how it works / what the pricing is.
There's also Lawrence Highman in the Barbican, but it looked all but dead when I went over to investigate - there was certainly none of the paraphernalia I'd expect a thriving tailor to have.
If anyone else has further information on tailors located within the square mile, especially those at the lower end of the price range, I'd be interested to hear - especially experiences from those who've used them.
I remember an old threat with names of a couple of names of Soho tailors. I believe they also have bespoke in this price range.
Just read the other post i was referring to: It was in the 'who is chan comparable to outside asia?
but i dont think chan's stuff is really bespoke! i would say it is more glorifide M2M - also they dont have the skilled trades people in HK now. this is true for all M2O products even shoes bag's etc! also most are too inconsistant, today you will get a great product and tomorrow you will get a bag of sh1te for the same price.
if i had the choice i would much prefer to buy in London or naples you can but full bespoke from of the row for about 800 pounds in a staple fabric, tailor such as Chris Kerr, Tom Browne and Tony Lutwyche all on Berwick Street. and all their prices are starting about 700 - 950 pounds and the suit i have from Chris Kerr is far better than any of the suits i have seen from chan.
and i would still have my suit made by him if i was in London more regular
I don't know what MTM costs at Huntsman, I would really love to own a huntsman... typical one button, WOW
this will be my second suit from there. first was a 3 roll 2 in a H&S target charcoal. i am pretty happy with it.
I do not know about Graham Browne's abilities to produce bespoke suits, but I can definitely share my today's experience with his shop.
Yesterday, I pop in to his place because I needed an alteration of one of my suits. One of the guys in his 40s met me there. He explained to me that he would be happy to help me. To take in the suit he offered me the price of 40 pounds plus 20 pounds for neck alteration.
Today I brought my suit for alteration, but this time, it was a different guy in with Graham Browne himself. The service which I got from both of them was worse than in the worst possible place. Firstly, they told me that why I bought suit from someone else and did not come and ordered a suit from them. After that my alteration price jumped to 150 pounds. I explained to them that I was told by one of their colleagues that it would cost me 60 pounds overall. The answer was: "Sorry, he is the boss - pointing at Graham Browne - it is his decision to provide quotes.
For this kind of poor service, I decided not to alter my suit with these horrible tailors. They reminded my some scam taxi-drivers at night.
I will never suggest them to anyone.
