Do you know who's the cutter for NYC? I have an order with them, but my cutter is Brain Hall. Haven't seen much of his work yet, unfortunately, so it's somewhat of a blind leap. He's replaced John Hitchcock.

Really nice guy when I met him though. Very cheerful, friendly, and upbeat.

^Danny Hall? He is heat cutter now and I assume he makes visits to nyc based on the importance of the location. Please post about the experience if you get a chance.

Oh right, Danny Hall. My mistake.

Tempted to add a pair of trousers to the order since I've heard great things about John Malone's work.

I think they have a different cutter for NYC customers though? I could be wrong.

Will post, but I don't currently have plans to visit London. And they only visit San Francisco once a year. May try to meet them in NYC to expedite the order, but it'll be a while before I get my jacket.

Order the trousers! Have to do it if you got a jacket.

Have you gotten anything from John Malone?

Would be great to get a "current state of savile row" thread going. Other than the constant stream of Steed, which is row-ish but not quite row in mind, there is really nothing here. I can add Huntsman and Gieves.

I've never ordered anything from them. I look ridiculous in unstructured clothes. And I spent a lot of money to reach that conclusion. But I'm tempted nonetheless by AS. Some look really great in it.

That would be fun. I would subscribe if you started it.

FWIW, there's a very good A&S thread already. Mostly focused on expats, but A&S work seems like it would fit well there.

Could also just stick everything in the Ongoing Bespoke Projects thread. I don't know if there's enough SR talk here to keep a thread active. A number of SR customers here no longer post anymore (or at least they don't post as much).

I've actually been wanting to try Edward Sexton.

More on the soft side, but A. Caraceni is quite nice. If I could try anyone at the moment, distance not being an issue, they would probably be it.

Have found that a lot of the older members do still lurk, so perhaps if a thread caught their attention, it would get the traction.
