I will try Dirty Inc anyway. Thanks for your advise

That's what I loved about getting my suit done by John Ferrigamo, because when you go into his shop to get measured or for a fitting, it's him who does it.

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's the fabric selection and pricing like?
post #303 of 361
He has everything for every price point. Ariston, dormeuil, barberis, and some stuff like reda and some private label stuff at a lower price point

You have any idea his Baberis suit runs from?

I've heard some conflicting stories with sox from a few friends of mine (have bought suits from him before). Had to go back a few times to get fixed up.

 

They have changed systems lately, and there have been a few issues in terms of getting styling correct and fit. I'm not hating on sox, just what I've heard from personal experience. I've kept this fairly vague to protect the identity of the friend,.

 

His VBC starting around $1500 from what I remember.

Who's "sox"?
post #307 of 361
Thank you for your info. I will check him out.
You have any experience with King and Bay? From what I heard they are better than Suitsupply or even Garrison.

Interestingly, few months ago I started a gig with an office in Brookfield Place, and King&Bay is located on my floor. I actually often get across guys that work there. There is a tall Asian guy that seams like he is running the place, and he always looks quite sharp. Flashy, obviously, but his clothes fit well and look well made. I might drop by to meet them and report back.

Yes, King and bay.

 

Starts around $850. Fused. They will drop the word bespoke around a lot, but they are 100% fused, made in India.

 

Stitching and design is sloppy (from what I've seen), but they have fabric options.

Oh. I may be wrong but someone told me that they also offer bespoke as well. They said they can make a bespoke suit in a week ( the only way to do it is to make it locally)
Anyway I shall find out more about it.
Again, thank you very much for your advise.

I ran into one of the guys who works at King & Bay a few months ago in Yorkville. He was wearing a double breasted suit that he had made in quite nice suiting but I wasn't impressed at all with the fit. The thing that really struck me was the extreme to which his vents flared (probably my biggest pet peeve in a suit's fit). It could just have been that one suit, or maybe the guy just really wanted an incredibly slim suit so I guess I wouldn't rule that out entirely as the guy himself was very friendly. A friend of mine also knows the guy (naturally I'd prefer not to name him) quite well and has spoke quite highly of him, so again that could have just been a one-off thing. Something else that confused me was that he described their service to me as halfway between MTM and Bespoke, which, considering what others have said about it being made in India, makes me think that perhaps it's as close to bespoke as it can be while still being made overseas (which still just sounds like MTM to me but w/e)

People defines "bespoke" differently. But to me when someone make you a suit without getting you try on a basted fitting ( not a muslin or a mock suit) , I think that is MTM.
You cannot get a bespoke suit (fit you the way you like) unless you try on your basted garment and get it adjusted before it is sewn and finished
Some shop tried to deceive their client by letting them try on some sample jackets or make you a muslin to try, while your suit is making by factory somewhere overseas.

Can you share with us what makes the Dirty so much better than your other experiences? And who were the other MTM/bespoke shops that you've used in the past that you weren't happy with? A good tailor can be so hard to find.
post #314 of 361
Sure thing,

I've had suits made at Harry rosen (Samuelson Mtm), garrison bespoke (Mtm and bespoke),Marlon durant, and have visited Trend, got style and spiros (ordered a suit and it never arrived). One option I'm hoping to try is spier Mackay as I believe they have a really nice product (based on the rtw pieces I've bought there) at a solid price point.

Simply put the Dirty is a small shop with an an excellent selection of fabrics run by people who care. The detail and care put into the fitting and work is superior to those listed above (except SM which I've yet to experience) and the prices are very fair.

I've had issues with fits and they were fixed the next day no questions asked. They aren't pushy and the entire experience is enjoyable rather than stressful or marred by haggling or up selling.

Because they actually make the goods (rather than adjusting a pattern), the route to an absolutely perfect fit may take a tweak or two but it is well worth it. The finished product are the best looking suits I own.

Rumors say that Garrison suits are made in China. Anybody have any experiences?
Their pricing are awfully high for a suit made in China
