Sorry, who are you??
I can now answer this myself. I e-mailed Suit Row and asked if their suits are canvassed. Here's their reply (which was startlingly quick for late on a Sunday afternoon, by the way):
"All of our suits have a floating chest canvas but we can make it fully
canvassed for a small extra price of £50."
That's a bit encouraging, I think.
I was about to say it has a floating chest piece but you have emailed them direct.
What a weird, prissy little jerk you are. I like my suit....it fits really well, especially after I had the seat taken out an inch, and has garnered quite a few compliments. Maybe you need more help to look good....I can't say, of course. But I come off just fine with cheap MTM attire.
Alas, poor you.
For those of you who aren't weird little jerks, I availed myself of the three for $99 shirt deal that the company offers. Two of the shirts, of end-on-end and oxford, are fine but the third is of a fabric which, when washed, shrank a great deal...a full size, at least, in the arms and body. Beware fabric CKH-029. The other fabrics aren't the greatest shirtings I've seen, but the fit is perfect.
I emailed the company yesterday, but have yet to hear back.
You're right, you're right....I am easily satisfied by a suit that fits me perfectly well and cost me a whopping $140. Call me crazy....or call me anything you like. But don't call me a weird, prissy little jerk with a maniacal paranoia.
If you spent half as much time refining your grasp of English grammar as you obviously have refining your vulnerability to advertising, your posts would be enjoyably, bitingly paranoid, instead of weird. Keep working at it. Some folks need more time with 4th grade grammar than others.
As regards your request, Shirtmaven, I'll make a point of taking some photos as soon as I can.
Everything about this post was such a model of civility and common sense that I was tempted to quote the whole thing.
In any event, thanks to HenryAstonBespoke.
Thank you Ac.
So this is our first post on style forum. We will launch an official Suit Row thread shortly.
First of all, thank you for any positive comments made here regarding Suit Row. We truly appreciate it.
For the negative comments - We agree that many tailored suits go wrong online and it is for that that reason we started our business...to do it properly.
Mr Henry Aston, thanks for your order and we look forward to your review.
What we would say is this. Please, we invite anyone to talk to us. Tell us what you think is needed. Tell us were other online tailors go wrong so we don't.
Suit Row is a new business so please forgive any of the teething issues with our site etc.
A couple of quick shots taken at work today of my second suit from everythingbespoke.com, with which I'm more satisfied for a couple of reasons. First, I gave myself an additional 1.5 inches in the seat and thighs, making the pants more comfortable and practical than those of the first suit. Second, I only paid $104, which included the thirty dollar cost of shipping. The company periodically runs eBay specials, knocking a few tens of dollars off the price as denominated in Australian dollars, and I jumped at the last one. In all, it worked out pretty well.
