Hello, some help please for one who knows little about couture.
I was at first going to get a MtM from Richard James, but they pointed me towards their off-the-peg range and said 'you may as well get one of those and get it altered as you're a fairly standard 38short'.
That would have come to £1,200 incl. alterations for a super 160s navy - but then I thought I'm not sure I like the design (long jacket, slanted pockets).
And also wondered whether I was really getting value buying OTP in Savile Row? Surely I could get just as nice a suit for a few hundred less on the High Street?
So I have been looking at Hugo Boss, whose suits I've always quite liked, and discovered I fit well in 38S - so have ordered a Huge4/Genius3 for £600, which was one of the only designs they have in short fitting.
Are Hugo Boss suits well made, a good choice at that price point?
Do any other designer (or 'non-designer') brands stand out in the £600-£800 range?
I have big cyclist thighs and bum that prevent me wearing anything *too* slim fit.
