You must have problems with reading comprehension. Scroll above and read the posts - I asked why he wanted a suit from Steed when similar ones were available, he gave his reasons, and I agreed accepting that my purchasing rationale was often similar. Comprende?

I realize you're pissed that I didn't love your herringbone suit in the other thread (I offered, imo, a fairly mild critique), but try to move on.

I have no issue with you and my suit. I will not lose a moment of sleep honestly.

I can't really be sure about this since we are dealing with Bespoke here and its really individualized to the customer, but the suit i had made by steed looks nothing like the pictures you see of A&S, Thomas Mahon maybe but certainly not A&S. Again i can't say for sure i mean who knows maybe if i commissioned one from A&S it would turn out exactly the same, but the fact is that Edwin is well regarded cutter who many on this forum can vouch for, and his prices are "a bit" lower than hitchcock, mahon, and certainly A&S.

Just to announce, for all interested parties - Steed just booked their first ticket to San Francisco, and will be arriving on Saturday, April 13th, then leaving Tuesday, April 16th. The hotel location is to be determined.

As per their usual schedule, they plan to return every three months or so for fittings. I'm not sure if they'll return once this initial round of orders is completed. If there's enough interest, they'll be happy to come for subsequent orders. Otherwise, this may be the only time for Californians to try out Steed's work.

You can contact Steed directly for appointments.

For more information about Steed, you can check out the Anderson & Sheppard Expatriates thread.

Congratulations on getting them to come to San Francisco (and securing the prerequisites).

Planning to order a BlazerSuit (either Oyster or Steadfast), pair of fawn brown flannel odd trousers, a sport coat from LL's houndstooth Shetland, and a brown herringbone jacket, though I've yet to decide the fabric on that. LL's Etna looks great. I wish I could find a tweed version of that color, but if not, I'm thinking of something darker, and just get the Etna made up when the cloth is available.

Wow - that's a fairly large initial order. I know you like the Steed style, but it wouldn't hurt to start small and see how you like the initial garments. I have found bespoke to be very much an iterative process, with each subsequent order better in small, but meaningful, ways.

 

Btw, for the BlazerSuit, I would go w/ Oyster and not Steadfast. Steadfast is beautiful but heavy, thereby limiting its utility.

I'm bringing them my LL RAF blue Agnelli flannel. Planning on a 3 piece suit. Trying to decide on the details of the vest. Lapels or no lapels. decisions.gif

I wonder if steed might have wanted guaranteed minimums to add a new city to their tour.
