Anyone own a jacket or suit from Charles Tyrwhitt? Thinking of picking up an unstructured jacket for cheap but can't find many legit reviews.

Correction Geoff.

DR doesn't have any money.

.. And I know this sounds like a very broad question but I have never looked into dedicated cold weather fabrics like tweed and flannel before. 

 

Try SuitSupply's online store. They provide detailed measurements for all their garments, and a free ship-back service if the garment doesn't fit. Also very reasonable pricing. I'm wearing a SS suit today - DB chalkstripe flannel in the Soho cut, in Carlo Barbera fabric. I picked it up from the Shanghai store. It was less than A$700, although I believe their prices have now gone up.

How do you rate then in terms of fabric quality ? Thinking of picking of sc brown pow from their online store.

Millions of people daily would probably agree on that. 

 

But some people think differently, like Wallace:

SuitSupply source their fabrics from medium- to high-end Italian fabric houses. With their scale, they can buy up big and so can keep prices down while providing a low-margin windfall for said suppliers. It's a clever model, better I think than trying to incorporate fabric production into their otherwise vertical structure.

 

So generally the fabrics are better than what you'd expect at this price point. Brown prince-of-wales sounds outstanding. What's the cut? Soho cut is pretty extreme and I'm only barely getting away with it, having slimmed down a bit over the past few months. Look carefully at the measurements they provide for each garment and make sure they work for your build.

The prices starts from low $2000 for suits and $250 for shirts. These are bespoke products not MTM. He can do fittings at your office. I've had fittings done at home previously as they don't have a brick and mortar store as yet.

Hopefully he will chime in when all the details are finalise.

 

i wonder how they'll do second fittings if it's bespoke (or even mtm for that matter). will be an interesting exercise.
