    I can and will make them but I don't really like them for myself.

    Does this only apply to people who get measured in your New York shop, or does it also apply to you doing trunk shows like Toronto? If it applies to international trunk shows like Toronto, when are you planning to visit again? [​IMG]

    Fraid so. The sample sale last week and this Gilt City offer are really intended to give me a boost over the summer as most of my Bespoke clients get out of the city. discounts and sales are not really something I want to drag out or be known for.

    This will certainly be the last special offer that I do this year, I may do something similar for summer 2015 but not really sure right now.

    I've been thinking about getting a couple of pairs made. How would we go about cashing in on this offer, since there's no way to purchase ahead of time using giltcity?

    Here's a question, say i purchase your giltcity special, can it be used at a later date? Won't be in NY until possibly Nov. - Dec.

    Lastly, what is your MTM style like, or what styles can be done MTM?

    I would contact me directly and we can sort something out in this case.

    There is a picture of one on my MTMs on the first page of this thread.

    How many fittings would you need for a 2-piece or just a jacket? Would it be possible to do it in 4 weeks and ship the finished product to the UK?

    I am basing it on the idea of 1 fitting so two visits by the client and then it can be either shipped (for a fee) or picked up. International shipping is fine by me but you would have to pick up the duties. the main problem I see is that very tough turn around time, 5 weeks is more likely but 4 weeks does not give us a lot to work with. I could turn out a bespoke in 5 weeks now if I saw you tomorrow or Saturday.

    Thank you for your reply. Seems like that's not going to work for me, as I only have 4 weeks. I understand it isn't a lot of time, and I certainly don't want to rush you. Maybe another time.

    EDIT: would a pair of trousers be possible?

    They only look good with a specific kind of higher-heeled shoe.

    Same deal I am afraid. With the garments made locally I can get in there and move things along (physically if I have to). With the MTM It is more about sending an order off and then it is produced efficiently in the time allotted that they stipulate and then it is shipped to me. Rush orders on an MTM level would simply clog up an efficient system.

    Hi David,

    Just reading up on your reviews here and I'm interested in getting a 2-piece suit made, a sports coat, and maybe several trousers. I was wondering about the cut they're taking out of Gilt City and would rather get it from you directly so as to keep as much profit for yourself. Was wondering how that pricing would work out?

    Thanks

    I read somewhere that Gilt keeps a ~1/3 but I could be wrong.

    David I have the same question as ShadoWing - would rather deal directly with you and interested in commissioning a classic navy or charcoal MTM 2pc suit.
