Greetings Styleforum. I am new here.... My name is Brian I am from Toronto Canada. I ironically came across this forum accidentally trying to google reviews for Elite Suits. I am the Canadian that recently placed the $2500 order with Simon. After reading his website/blog. I took a leap of faith and placed my order. It Consist of 3 x 3 piece Fully Handstitched Canvassed Suits, 3 Egyptian Cotton Shirts, 3 Pairs of Trousers and an Overcoat. I have not submitted my measurements yet, as I have a custom suit that I am having made locally (Holt Renfrew Coppley MTM). I plan on using the measurements from that suit and send them to Simon. I plan on having Simon make me some TOM FORD inspired suits with a similar cut, Wide Peak Lapels, 3 roll 2, Surgeon Cuffs with 5 Buttonholes, Trousers with no belt loops and side tabs. I will be submitting my measurements this weekend. Simon has been great with his communication. I am very excited to see how my first Elite Suit order goes! If anyone is interested I can let you know how the process and the results of the final products. I have to mention by no means am I affiliated or have purchased anything from Elite Suits in the past.
Why would anybody commit to buying three suits from a MTM operation they've never ordered from before? Seems...risky.
