That was an awesome ad.

I think he mainly does MTM. As he does own the former Cheshire Clothing (which was the manufacturing arm of the former Chester Barrie) he likely has some good quality stuff being made up.

RJs right - TL is a high-end MTM outfit.

Reasonably decent MTM, NOT Bespoke at all.

Does anyone have any more experience with Lutwyche suits? Their shop has recently come to my attention: apparently it's the only handmade RTW suit maker in England. They also have a sister shoe brand called Lodger, which, judging by their website, looks pretty nice. http://www.lutwyche.co.uk/ http://www.lodgerfootwear.com/shoes/...-military.html Thanks to anyone that responds.

He used to be a British Army Major. When I met him I couldn't keep my eyes off his dirty shoes.

Reasonably decent MTM? To be fair it's probably the best in the U.K.
