Savile Row (Dege and Skinner) Visiting Tailors: Bespoke Process?? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Thanks! Such a highly thought of Forum, been a member for quite a while, but now active on behalf of my client Dege & Skinner.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but am thinking about booking an appointment with Dege & Skinner in Palm Beach when they are here in March, 2016. Anyone else here planning a Palm Beach appointment? Also, any idea what the going rate is for a 2-piece suit from them nowadays? TIA!

So, in case anyone here is interested, I heard back from the kind folks at Dege & Skinner and here is some of the information I received:

"Our 2 piece Bespoke suits start at around £3400.00. For a Super 130s to Super 150s, the price will increase to around £3800.00 - £4000.00. These are Sterling export prices as you do not have to pay our VAT (20% tax)"

The above comes from Shop Manager Matthew A. Cowley. Now, to check the bank account and decide on fabric and style...

If I do end up commissioning something I will be glad to document it here on SF if anyone would be interested.

Yes, I'd be very interested in hearing about your experiences for your 1st suit with them. I use them for my shirts so it'll be neat to see how a suit commission with them goes. I believe William Skinner travels for all of their USA visits so you'll have the pleasure of working with him throughout the entire process.

I have an appointment with them at 9:30 on March 1st, so I will be sure to take some pictures and good notes to document the process. According to Matthew Cowley, it will be Nick and Tom (Nicholas De'Ath and Tom Bradbury) who I will see during the visit, not William Skinner. That's a shame because I'd love to meet Mr. Skinner.

Agreed, plus Robert Whittaker usually travels with him, so you'll miss meeting him too. I don't recall Palm Beach being a traditional stop for them so they may be dividing their team as they expand their US itineraries to cover more cities. Thanks for offering to document your experiences, looking forward to it!

I was really surprised to see Palm Beach on their itinerary, to be honest. They mentioned in an e-mail that they come here regularly, but I gather not as frequently as NY or some other cities. I may have to have some of my fittings in NYC to avoid waiting a year or more for the suit.

Can't wait to get started!
