Suitsupply - cheap bespoke

In London, this is on Vigo Street (where Boateng once was, and just off Savile Row). It offers RTW at £200 and full bespoke (made from scratch, though you get no fittings) at £300 - £800.

Any of you heard of this place? What are your opinions?

Speed is correct http://www.suitsupply.nl/

Was originally set up by a Dutch guy (Fokke whatshisface) and has quite a view shops accros the Netherlands. Its okay for young starting professionals but you outgrow it.

Anyone actually bought anything there? How does it wear?

bump!

Anyone have any sense of the quality of suitsupply - either MTM or RTW - what would you compare their suits to in terms of quality?

Suit Supply offers Personal Tailoring or Made to Measure as it is commonly known, but not bespoke. Around 35 measures can be changed , using the closest fitting jacket and trousers. These measurement changes create a unique profile from which your suit/shirt is created. Suits currently start at £399. The choice of around 600 cloths can rise up to £2000. There are many other details such as pocket style, linings, buttons etc to choose from. The full-canvas internal construction is a significant detail which sets it apart from many other personal tailored suits.

What exactly does this mean? Are the suits poorly constructed/styles very "youth"?
I have walked past their London shop a few times and have been tempted.
I would also be very grateful for some kind of quality comparison.

I've recently been inside and liked the look of a couple of jackets. I, too, would be interested in the opinions and experiences of other members

That was already established three posts up.

If I have time next week I'll try to stop by.

Pretty basic made to measure. Cannot be bespoke at that price and it really does not suggest a personal pattern which is essential. No fittings is pure RTW.

Probably a misleading trade description under English law even with the recent High Court ruling.

Agree.

I owned a RTW suit of them some time ago (was forced to buy it, as part of a 'uniform'). Okay for the money but the button stance is way to high and the shoulders are ugly. All suits have working buttons on the cuffs and all pants are non pleated and are non cuffed.

Don't know much about their MTM program. But at that price point you could look for Canali/Caruso/Corneliani in the last period of the sales, or online at deep discount, suits of these brands are superior in every way.

sounds too pricy for something you can't get custom fit (which sucks for me cause i have broad shoulders but the arm length on them is usually too long)
