Scabal

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
While browsing through a local custom suit maker shop, I saw a Scabal catalog. I knew that Scabal is one of the better sources of suit fabric.  I did not know that Scabal is a London tailor. Upon arriving home, I checked out their website which, in my opinion, is one of the best suit-fashion websites I have seen. There are some great pictures of tasteful examples of how to wear a striped shirt with a striped suit--which has been written about on another topic. Scabal At the store, I looked through the Scabal sample book.  Very nice--very tempting.   Does anyone on the Forum own a suit by Scabal?

Scabal isn't a London Tailor. They're actually Belgian. I believe the company was originally located in Brussels. I think their tailor made suits are excellent value for money. Their MTM suits can definitely measure up against Corneliani/Canali. For around 850 euro's in a Super 100 wool you can have a MTM suit which means you can specify pretty much every single detail of your suit within the Super 100 range. For around 2200 euros you can own one of their MTM suits with the Diamond Chip fabric.

To offer Scabal's prestigious worsted fabric family, the exclusive Super 150's, in even greater variety and with a more glamorous look, Scabal has created an exciting new fabric called DIAMOND CHIP that adds genuine diamond fragments to Super 150's wool yarns and pure silk
I haven't purchased one yet because I'm a sucker for Brioni and saving up for a tailormade Brioni.

Funny you mention Brioni, because the suit pictured under the "SARTORIALE" heading looks very Roman in style and cut. Jon.

But the Sartoriale is a different (and more expensive) line than the MTM line of course. Scabal is Brioni's #1 supplier of fabrics I was told. So it would make sense voor Scabal to have their Sartoriale suits manufactured at Brioni. Of course with some compromises, because there is still a difference in quality between Brioni and Scabal. For instance, if you use the diamond chip fabric for a Brioni suit it will run you about 8 or 9000 euros. As mentioned earlier, for the MTM Scabal it will be around 2200 euros.
