    Living in England, I'm never going to a customer of David's but I love the look of the various pieces he's shown us on SF over the years. Glad you're an affiliate of the site, and best of luck with it all!

    He was actually quite quiet, polite and down to business. I had to remake his trousers because I underestimated how big his thighs were, but he didn't know that.....well, if he reads style forum now he does.

    I figured he'd actually be decent to work with personally, from most accounts. I was thinking of things like having to remake the trousers. That has to be a fairly unusual physique to deal with.

    Some of them are, most are clients I have worked with at various firms over the past 15 years. I've managed the make up of their garments and or measured up/ fitted all of them. Except for Elton who always bought off the rack.

    Gieves and Hawkes, brief spell at Timothy Everest, as the bespoke house manager and Commes Des Garçons.

    Hi David,

    What's your impression of the Everest house cut? How does it compare to Gieves and Hawkes?

    The Gieves cut is kind of neutral Savile row, but a bit military. Timothy is rather influenced by Tommy Nutter and I feel like his cut has a natural incline towards the 70s ie longer coat, wider lapels.

    Of course it depends what you ask them to make you.
