    I'll need Rob to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think SS's price range is: 750-850 -> 950-1100 -> 1250-1400

    Well here's Oscar Hunt's. I added this to the SF wiki.

    It would be nice if this kind of thing was on the OH and SS websites.... I know things change are vary based on individual requirements and requests, but transparency is always good.

    Comments by me.

    Oscar Hunt Tailored Suits

    All Australian wool. I'm fairly sure they are all s120s and up - stand to be corrected, though.

    The Olsen Collection $845 milled in China I think?
    Thomas Ogilvy Collection $995
    UK Linley Collection $1,150 Huddersfield cloths, but I think they get a better deal on them, possibly by buying in bulk? Might be the "Lindley" collection on Huddersfield's website below
    Huddersfield Premium Collection $1,100 - $1,850 cloths from the Huddersfield ranges, e.g. New Mill http://www.huddersfieldcloth.com/

    They also have a Huddersfield Cotton & Linen range, which from memory was about the same price as the Linley Collection

    Oscar Hunt Tailored Shirts

    100% Cotton Tailored Shirt $149

    Oscar Hunt Tailored Overcoats

    The Olsen Collection $795
    Huddersfield Premium Collection $1,350

    Speaking of the wiki - does anyone actually use Kent Wang's MTM service here? I understood that the postage costs back and forth made it uneconomical compared to the other optons.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that Kent Wang uses the same factory in China that SuitShop uses, so Kent Wang is just SuitShop without the proper fitting.

    Why does it matter if the suit is made in China or Italy? We all know Chinese labourers are equivalently skilled as their Kiton counterparts. Or am I missing something from the Aussie group think from days gone past?

    Jim Keays is in intensive care.

    Hope he gets better.

    Do what you want to do, be what you want to be, yeah.

    I don't think 'inferior Chinese made' is the issue at hand here...

    EDIT
    I've decided in hindsight, that I've ironically done a Jimmy Rustle, jumped in too early on misunderstanding the post and have fittingly quickly deleted my mistake.

    What was your point? I think jommyhoffa was actually referring to an earlier post mate.
    I also am starting to agree with him. As we all know 90% of the beauty of a good suit is in the fit. IME my best (Suit Shop) and worst (random traveling tailor) suits were both made in china. Then I've had an Italian (PJ) and French (Aus Tailor) commission that were both somewhat disappointments due to issues of fit where the construction may have been fantastic but something went wrong somewhere. And really besides a few minor sartorial details I couldn't tell the difference in construction quality between the 3 (crappy fused junk aside)

    I don't really care whether a suit is made in Italy, Thailand or China, and I don't want to restart that argument again.

    I do want to know the essential differences between two MTM options offering a rather similar service.

    Very true. My current tailor is Chinese, and the results are spot-on each and every time. Very cost effective, too. I shall be using them for the foreseeable future.

    If I may be so bold as to translate JH's actual question, I think it would read:


    The rest is the usual JH dose of marsala. He often has valid points; it just is obfuscated by his unique sense of humour

    I was just under the impression that DR was having a dig at MS's lack of girlfriend.

    FFS.

    In other news, Gianni Cerutti has the highest number of posts in the last 24 hours (according to the front page). Compliments.
