MTO Overcoat from a Savile Row Tailor?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have experience with the MTO offerings of the major SR houses? I have some old overcoating lying around that I'd like to have made up. I don't care enough for the cloth to get it made bespoke, but figure that an MTO offering w/ a fitting from a SR house may work well (straight seams, not much styling required etc.).

 

Am I on to something, or are most of these just an MTM product coming out of some random factory in China?

Who are the tailors you hope to speak with and have either one of them make you an overcoat (MTM)?

IMHO, it's not so much the coming out of Asia (Chan's stuff come out of China and HK) but the limitations of the MTM service whereby not all the quirks of your body are accounted for, though admittedly, with a heavy cloth, it ought to drape right over.

Why not get it made bespoke from other tailors. Cad & dandy, graham brown, or one of the tailors on and around lamb conduit street. You get bespoke but no sr bespoke

In this way, you can get a fitting as well

I have seen some nice overcoat from Hayward, might be a good choice if you want something slightly trendy

Thanks - I'm considering either KH&L or Steed's MTO program.

 

Macallan - I have seen some of the stuff from C&D, and have been unimpressed (I live in NYC, and Graham Browne doesn't travel here frequently.) If Jon DeBoise would conduct the C&D fittings in NY, I would certainly be interested but sadly, that is not the case.

 

Btw, both Steed and KH&L offer a fitting as well. I'm an existing bespoke customer of KH&L's, so I'm certain I may even get an extra fitting if need be.

Well, in your case, there is little argument against KH&L, clearly they will know your measurements well and the garment will be likely come out close to bespoke.

The London C&D garments with Mr Brown are pretty impressive. It certainly does look nice to me but lack of a iconic cut.
