Definitely a recent change then. Either way, they're still offshore MTM.

This is a thread on the English & Town Classics book (no local tailor has this, but it can be organised to be delivered if there is sufficient demand). There is a bit of positive feedback on how the cloth makes up by Jefferyd in that thread.

A bit about the company here:

This is better value than Minnis or any other source you care to name. Given that you can get a great choice of designs, and that they are firsts rather than a questionable end of mill run, you are far better off going with Dugdale than buying off eBay. I have been very impressed by the quality of the cloth.

If necessary, other tailors in Sydney can be distributed the books. Disclaimer: I have no financial connection with Dugdale whatsoever. I (like the tailors around town) am just a bit sick of the extortionist mark ups imposed by cloth middle men.

I am really hoping to get a suit made up by Adamo later this year. Will ask about this company for sure.

Just a bump to check for newer updates, since it's almost been 4 months since this thread was last posted in. What are your recomendations for good quality, stylish, bespoke shirts, budget, maybe $200-300 shirt? Heard Charles Nakhle was good?

Actually Sartor when I bought my suit from Germanicos tailors I actually used a English cloth from Huddersfield cloth (Dugdale) in the cape Breeze range wool & mohair mix.. I agree with you it is magnificent.

After speaking with John from Germanicos he mentioned that Germanicos uses Dugdale cloth throughout their export network of 15 countries and buy huge volumes... He had also just returned from Huddersfield after having meetings with the owners Dugdale. (highly recomend the fabric at it's price point!)

In response to the other queries regarding Germanicos, as I mentioned before I have been wearing and buying suits for a great number of years. Throughout this time I have used several tailors. I can honestly say that the service, leadtime and quality of the finished product from Germanicos is far superior to all the others I have purchased in Sydney.

I know they are a company with a worldwide presence and produce their suits offshore, I am not quite sure where, however when I went for my fittings they had their own dedicated tailors to take care of 2nd and 3rd fittings and their own equipment ie: sewing machines, pressing machines etc etc.

Also as I just went in the other week again for some more garments, I was told that they do offer and Australian made bespoke service now, is more expensive, but i guess if it's a big issue where your garment is made there is your option...

Further to that I did ask them why they dont produce the suits in Australia, John's response was that most of the good qualified tailors in Australia are either 60 or 70 years old, and that there is no schooling or appreticeships for tailors and any new blood coming out of the country. He also explained that they export to 15 countries and they need many good tailors and stitchers working for them, it would be impossible to get those numbers here in Australia...

I'm happy with the make and fabric, and I get compliments everytime I wear the suit, so all I am saying is that I highly recomend them as I do know finding a good consistent bespoke tailor in Australia is very difficult....

Regarding minnis cloth, I've had 3 suits made in it which I wear daily, and all still look amazing. The eldest, which is 4 years old, actually looks better now than when it was made!

Also, where is a good alterations tailor? I need to have my coat lining replaced.

And are their any companies that do suit cleaning (not dry cleaners)?
