Best 'value' tailors in London - Page 2

Any idea on pricing, Mr Monkey?  Used to live around there, and still go back now and again for football (not a subject I expect to hear much about here, but if there's one football ground you'd expect to see tweed....)

I'm kind of jonesing for a tweed duffelbag and the shop is close to my flat. I'm going to stop by.

Play that back to yourself in the morning and then slap your own face!

 

But, when you do pop in there, would you mind feeding back on some prices?  Thank you very much. mwink[1].gif

Yes, any idea on price at Walker Slater? Are they a mill? Their website seems to suggest that.

I think the tweed-on-tweed look is quite hard to pull off, as several people suggested. I think a grey flannel probably works a lot better.

If my memory serves- a three piece tweed suit was around 450 (GBP). I bought a pair of trousers and they were about 90 quid. They have been promising a new online store for about 3-4 months now but nothing yet.
