Fly me to the moon
And let me shop among the stars
Let me see what bespoke's like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my coat
In other words, please let it fit me

Fill my life with suits
And let me sing forevermore
Bespoke's all I hope for
All I worship and adore
In other words please fit true
If so, then I love you

I have a very unusual DB deeper-than-charcoal gray with a red beaded pin stripe that I like very much.

That said, the 120s material feels like a horse blanket.

Well...I don't buy your used garments for a reason.

This is a very informative reply. Thank you OxxfordSJLINY.

AFAIK, to do better than Oxxford anywhere in the world (again, at least in terms of handwork and overall construction quality if not in fit, drapery, comfort and appearance), you need to not just go bespoke, but you need to go bespoke from the following tailors: Rubinacci, Campagna, Caraceni, Westmancott, Huntsman, Richard Anderson, Limited and the following North American tailors: Fioravanti, Shattuck, Raffaelli and Logsdail, all of whose starting prices for bespoke suits are several thousands of dollars, now $4K to start for a bespoke suit at the very least, for some of these tailors, more or much more than that (this has been confirmed by several members of SF and AAAC).

Oxxford's made to measure starting price for a suit is $2.7K (I know for a fact that this is 100% correct because I was told by several stores that sell Oxxford; several members of SF and AAAC have confirmed the same thing).

Thank you, Coho.

Initially, that reply message (the one that you quoted) that I posted was non informative, worthless and wasteful due to having a lot of incorrect information (which, apparently, ticked off several forum members in the process, as we all saw).

Fortunately, editing that reply that you found to be very informative did you and me (and perhaps other forum members) a lot of good, as it was very helpful with information that was 100% correct.

When I erase the spacing in your post, you sorta sound like lafont.

While I have no quarrel with the quality and worksmanship of an Oxxford suit, I do want to point out my frustration with its made-to-measure program. I have more than ten of those suits made, but for every single one, Oxxford screwed something up. On the order form, the sales associate was very thorough in detailing all the specifics and I hate to say that for every suit, at least one or two specifications were missed. For example, I requested quarter lining and the suit came with full lining. I requested extended waist band, and the trouser arrived with a different style (and no loops). I even told the CEO when he came to a trunk show. That's my two cents...and also that explains why I have stopped ordering suits from Oxxford.

You had them make more than ten suits, and they screwed something up on each one?

Is Oxxford's pricing lower because they use less-fancy fabrics?
