Hi everyone,

Apologies about my inactivity.  I called Manoj tailors but they said their 3 pieces started from £1500 which is unfortunately out of my price range. I revisited Roy Smith Tailors in notts today and went ahead with the purchase. I'm getting the Morning Suit done in a beautiful navy (almost royal blue) Holland & Sherry mohair and double breasted waistcoat done in a cream Holland & Sherry super 100's. I also ended up ordering a black velvet tuxedo with tuxedo pants and also a custom pique shirt.

He's charging me £1600 for the lot which I think is very reasonable. My only concern is that he seemed reluctant to do the morning suit in a full floating canvas due to the lightness of the cloth. Would this make a big difference and is it worth pushing for?
