Ian Bone Tailor - Newcastle, UK?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Has anyone experience with this tailor? There's very little about him online and his website is very 2007. http://bespoke-tailoring.co.uk

Failing that, any other suggestions for tailors in the North-East of England?

Thanks,

— James

Don't like the look of them.

"Our Tailors" - no reference to the single cutter who will measure and do the fittings.

and

We have over 40 years of experience within tailoring and we have seen many changes to fashion and technology. As a result, we offer a marriage of timeless style with the latest fabrics and techniques to offer a truly stunning appearance.


That smacks of a low amount of hand work and traditional craft ways of making garments.

Avoid if you want proper bespoke.

Thanks GBR - good advice. Looks like I may stick with my London tailors then. Do you have any other recommendations for good tailors in the north of the UK (Ideally at less than £2k a suit)?

Normally agree with what you say GBR (even if most of it seems to be written in your panto-villain, tongue firmly in cheek guise) but not sure I agree with you here.

Not every provincial small tailor is great at marketing themselves with the right buzzwords which will appeal to all knowing igents. I see nothing wrong in any of the description above and nothing to raise alarm bells. "Our tailors" could mean father and son written in the 3rd person for all we know.

I have no connection to the above and have never heard of them BTW. As always, the best thing would be to simply go in and see how the tailors are dressed. It should fit them well, even if the stylistic choices aren't to your taste to the OP.
