Those that are thinking of buying an extremely high grade suit would not want to miss this strictly limited offer. If you're interested send me a private message or email me from the website
.

If anyone's interested in just getting some cloth and taking it to their own tailor, you can sign up to receive an e-mail from the Huddersfield Cloth Company via their website and you will receive regular updates about discounted lengths of cloth.

The cloth in this week's e-mail wasn't to my taste (too much self-striped, beige wool for my liking!) but there were a couple of nice fabrics in last week's e-mail.

They said on telly the other night that reality could just be a two dimensional hologram projected on to the surface of the universe. I thought this sounded about right but the missus was having none of it.

I think that this argues against your existence as a separate entity, as you're probably just a character created for promotional purposes! biggrin.gif

Very well done, Gerry!

 

I took out a 'just for the hell of it piece' this morning too.

True but we're talking extremely high class tailoring here at prices that represent real value..Do you know any Australian tailor that will fully hand stitch a suit for under a grand including the cost of the cloth? The tailor that we use for suits of this standard makes nothing else but suits for bespoke tailors (mostly in Hong Kong) and the standard of tailoring we are demanding is higher than he normally uses for them. Although, if you're happy with machine stitching we can arrange it at an even lower price however, at under $1,000 for a suit of this standard of cloth why not go for something better.

 

I doubt any tailor operating a store could survive on the margins we're using. Naturally there are advantages in dealing locally but I'd ask even then where is your suit going to be actually made.

I didn't mind the blue windowpane. For some reason I'm into windowpane fabric at the moment. It must be the Matt Preston influence

Especially if it's your actual army uniform.

Well in that case he should have hired a better firm of script writers.

Same as when I trained at FJ's, you get taught by someone who has done it before and done it well, in my case the fitter that taught me and my mentor had been doing it for over 20 years. There is no course or apprenticeship etc it's just learning, listening & watching and eventually doing.

That's right Jason - we've given Matt who has worked with Tom in Melb for a while now the opportunity to branch out on his own in Suit Shop. The Melbourne guys here may already know him - he's a really great guy and perfect fit in this new venture.

Yes - Matt, while a very nice looking man in his own right, is no June.

I can vouch for the fact that Matt is a top man. I was very satisfied with his knowledge and expertise when he did my fitting. Looking forward to seeing the results.
