Would it be possible to send me a free sample for me to make an assessment? I can then post a detailed review of the process etc. Where are you guys based?

Wow frank. i went to your site and you're actually real and now i understand where your username comes from. Creepy!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Don't sweat it Oli: I sometimes wear brown double monks, in the Magistrates Court anyway. And there's one senior junior who wears his with robes (which I think looks silly, black and brown, but anyway...)

Seriously Frank you seem to be obsessed with Elite Suits. It's like Pavlov's dogs. I make a post and straight way you come back with a derogatory comment. It's actually rather amusing.

 

Keep going though. I getting more and more orders from SF members (including two yesterday) so it would seem I'm not the only one who finds your replies funny.

 

It's rather quaint how you seem to think that my tailors have some magical ability to make suits that fit a customer perfectly to your idea of perfect rather than just make them to the measurements provided by the customer despite me explaining just a little while ago what you need to do to get that close to perfect fit and that a lot of customers don't bother.

 

I mean coming out and saying that my customers must just be stupid is a classic. Especially when I've made suits for CEO's of two ASX200 companies and the CEO of a well known global technology company but let's listen to the superior opinion of Frank.

 

BTW when comparing his new Elite Suit to his last purchase our global tech CEO said that ours was a better fit, a better fabric and much better standard of construction and when he went to have his photo taken for the cover of a well circulated industry magazine he wore our suit.

 

When you consider that his other suit was a Tom Ford original he paid $7,000 for, you will have to forgive me if I was a little chuffed.by his praise.

 

BTW Frank. That suit you're wearing in your profile picture. The jacket looks a little on the long side for my taste and that sleeve appears rather short. Is it just me or do the shoulders seem a little big and that waist looks as though it could come in an inch or so.

 

Then again, as I said how a suit fits is a very individual issue. How I like my suits to fit may be completely different to what you want in yours

I am passionate about top-notch tailoring. I don't see it from Elite Suits. All I see is verbose nonsense trying to sell crud as something great.

No. If you want your pavlov bell theory to hold up, it needs to be Frank that hears the bell, not you.

Frank is a maniac. Kind of like dexter. Beware

Are you implying those of us who have been fitted by PJ's Melbourne operation are getting ripped-off?

I thought we already cleared this up previously?

What would you guys consider as the most elegant, lined chukka boot available?
post #29803 of 56026
Suede or leather? Carmina make a beautiful one that's on my list in the rain last, Gerry might have them possibly?

Not that I want to sound too pedantic, but it's Savile Row (with one "l"), not Saville Row.

A close up of a Saville Row street sign in the West End.

Also, from memory, Patrick Johnson trained as a shirtmaker on Jermyn St, rather than as a fitter on Savile Row.

Alfred Sargent have some very nice-looking chukka boots, particularly in the AS Exclusive range.

The C&J Tetbury is also nice - does the 348 last fit you?
