I want to go for a bespoke suit in London. I am not sure, which tailor to chose.
I am more on the heavy side and have bespoke suits from Chriss Kerr (Eddy did it), Cad & the Dandy.
The Kerr is nice and comfortable, but nothting, where I went out with a wow-effect. Cad and the Dandy is ok, but would not chose
them again as too many people worked on adjusting it.
I although bought two MTM suit from Taliare, which have a different, neater style, but are not really comfortable.
So I am looking for a traditional cut, I think. But I would certainly listen to recommondations from an experienced tailor
which style would suit me.
I checked the forum and found some intersting posts, but some of them were quiet outdated.
I am very undecided what to do. Either trying to find a SR tailor, which seems to be difficult with my idea of price (maximum
around 3.000 GBP) or going to an off-SR tailor. Or as a third option to give Chris Kerr a second chance.
I talked to Graham Brown and to Chopping & Lodge. Not sure with C & L as they had bad reviews, but my impression on the phone was very good.
So my question to the experienced bespoke buyers: is there really such big difference between the SR and the other tailors? Or is it only the location and name that causes the differences in prices?
Any recommondations for a "beginner" in bespoke like me?
Your input is appreciated very much.
