Don't live anywhere near there. My knowledge comes from my grandfather decades ago. Well, have accumulated some knowledge later, being there is never an end to this subject.

I received my third suit from Raj (3-piece in Scabal Eton fabric) and I am very happy. It fits better than either my first or second jacket. Long enough in the front; ease in the chest and waist.

 

I was clearer with him when ordering that I wanted a conservative suit, with space in the chest and waist; nothing too fitted, and nothing trendy short. He fulfilled my requests and I am definitely continuing to go to him. 

 

Next up will be the rangoon that I have on order from Kolecho.

Any tailor that let you try on a "muslin" or "canvas" as they called it is 100% MTM. Only when you try on a hand basted of your actual fabric ordered is considered Bespoke. And if you can decide on how wide your lapel and how low your notch can be, and even how wide the angle on your notch lapel than I think that is a really really truly hand made bespoke !!!

I'd recommend the Dirty Inc for anyone looking for a nice bespoke experience at a very reasonable price.

You ll get a basted fitting and every detail is up to your discretion. JS (Sox) is a great guy who takes his business seriously and will do everything to ensure youre happy with the product.

What a idiotic name.

Something my wife frequently points out, but it is hands down superior to all other experiences I've had in the city

Yes I worried about the"name " too. But heard some good things about this shop. They are made locally right? I hate suits that made overseas and claim to be made in Canada. Bad practice !!!

Anybody have any experience with King and bay? I heard that they are good too. Suddenly Toronto has lots of selections for bespoke suits.

Your experience may be great but I think he's doing himself a disservice by going with that name cool.gif

He used to be at another place IIRC.....?

They are made locally, which makes things infinitely easier if there are any issues.

Given nobody will see the label (if you even want one) it's hardly an issue. Sooner have a great suit from him than a hack job than some faux prestige outfit like "Woodworth & Charles" or something.

 

Used to work at Garrison and is known for his flashy style. Hardly the case with clients though, he's steered me away from bolder choices on a number of occasions and it's always been for the best.

John Ferrigamo would be my recommendation. I haven't tried his bespoke yet, only MTM but his MTM experience seems to be much more involved than others (you can see my review of him here http://www.styleforum.net/t/367045/anyone-had-experiences-with-toronto-custom-suit-maker-john-ferrigamo) his house style is pretty flashy but like any good tailor, he's very flexible and can accommodate just about anything.

Now a day you're hardly see any tailor or even a cutter to get your body skin measurements and look at your posture. When you come to "tailor shop" you usually see "stylist" who will let you try on their samples and get you a MTM suit with some bell and whistles and called it a bespoke suit.
I will try Dirty Inc anyway. Thanks for your advise

The worst part is that they have zero accountability if it all goes wrong
