The conclusion you've drawn is completely detached from what I actually wrote. I didn't create any such binary.
Nonetheless, I fail to understand how buying all of one's suits from Tom Ford RTW (which is what people were suggesting) can ever constitute a "tailoring hobby".
TF, Kiton, Attolini, &c. make exceptionally high quality clothing, but buying it is not much of a hobby.

Thank you. I actually had Andrew Lock buy it for me at C21 just to chop it up- I had never seen it and had no idea of the button configuration. I had spent quite a bit on it so I figured I would put it back together again. Sadly, it no longer fits as I've gained about thirty pounds since that photo was taken.

Thank you. To be clear, that's the suit that I took apart for that blog post, then I put it back together with some alterations.

The linked to post was fantastic, especially for someone who is learning why one suit is of a better quality than another. I didn't notice a "best of" or "top" posts type post or "new to this blog see these posts" type on your site, is there one somewhere?

Cognitive dissonance, anyone?

Well surprisingly the amount of people saying "for that money you should have gotten bespoke" is surprisingly low. When i saw the thread tittle i expected at least 20 different people saying "you could have gotten bespoke for XXX dollars from XXX country"

Was it based in HK? i thought it was Shanghai?

Bespoke to me is something i will do down the road when I have the time and the money, same as buying myself a Patek. I have some bespoke suits from chittleborough & morgan (not made for me) and love the detailing of bespoke.

Is this in the sales somewhere? I was searching for it.


And OP, I'm new too. Been following this site for a month. Your suits look great to me. I really like TFsuits style in general.

I think you are right. I think it was Shanghai for the entry level bespoke.
