I'm joking. Seriously though, BB is shit compared to just 10 years ago.

Fox, what is it you dislike about P. Johnson?

Also, does anyone know the general pricing structure of their bespoke/MTM/whatever you call it?

Edit: I could always email, but I feel like a bit of a jackass making pricing inquiries when I'm not immediately planning on a purchase.

Surely no sane business would object to such an inquiry.  They’re well aware that people research things well in advance of making actual purchase decisions.

 

Cheers,

I haven't seen them cut a single decent pair of trousers, the examples they post online lack drape and taper far too aggressively from the knee.

 

Many of the shots they post online aren't flattering - if they can't cut a decent suit for those advertising the brand I'm not going to consider them.

 

Yes, all these things can probably be changed, but resisting a house cut and styling is an uphill battle.

What is it you dislike about them? For me, they don't look THAT bad, save for the painfully obvious length and leg opening...I'm no expert by any means, but the comically slim leg opening (I wouldn't ever sit properly in such pants) seems to be what is causing the biggest issues, at least from what I can see in their site's gallery.

Not trying to sway your opinion, just trying to enlighten myself as much as anything.

Their jackets rarely look clean, either, with noticeable issues in the shoulders and waist buttons that can barely be done up (see the second last example above)

Moose knuckle is so 2015.

PG's pants don't look like that, so it must be possible for them to do. If you walked in wearing a pair that you like and pictures of PG's, and told them to make the pants similar to those, it seems like they should be able to produce something less jegging-like. But maybe not.

Every one of those trousers look like the too tight grandma pants that LL Bean sells for fat ladies. The last one especially.

The windowpane jacket looks like it may be ok, but it's tough to tell from the way the model is messing with the pose. All of the trousers look bad, and the db fit is really chav central.

those trousers are awful.

I'm going to become an agent for a tailoring company in Hong Kong! Very excited. Going to present cloth, give styling advice, and do some measuring for commission (to their London clients).

 

THIS WILL BE MY FIRST JOB. EVER.

 

Noodles, why don't you get an MTM suit from me? :smarmy:
