I am having great difficulty in dressing well on a medium budget, and was hoping some people can help me out.
There has been an explosion of online tailors recently who can customise all forms of suits, but in my view customisation does not equal dressing well. By dressing well, I pretty much mean clothing that is hand made in Britain (I know suits made in other counties can be good, but it is just not what I am looking for). Yes you can get MTM and Bespoke on the row, but I'm looking for something that is much more accessible, both in terms of price and location.
In terms of footwear, I think there is reasonable access though brands like Loakes, Barker or Herring, and you can scale up from there if you wish. These bands all provide hand made shoes made using a traditional last and Goodyear welted sole. However when it comes to suits with a floating canvas, these are so much less accessible. The internet tailors do not provide this, and the row is just too cost and location prohibitive. What I would be looking for is British made, floating canvas, off the peg suits. Therefore, I was hoping that we can perhaps start to identify any suitable brands which sell such suits at a reasonable price.
The brand suitsupply seem to have a good model, but their suits are not made in Britain. So are you lovely Style Forum people aware of any brands that fit it bill?
