    For bespoke suits, best way to approach is to order a three piece suit and a double breasted jacket up front so that the tailor has all the patterns for future orders.

    And IMO for bespoke shoes, funding allowed, it's best to order a pair of loader, pair of Oxford so the maker has lasts for all future orders. Or if you want to dive deeper, a round toe last, a square toe last, and loafer last. But only few makers can do both round and square toe last well.

    Thats so true, personally I dont like Vass square toes. But he do some really nice round shaped lasts. Best on square/chiseled or soft square i think Tony Gaziano is.

    Cleverley and G&G ate both very good with chisel toes. G&G is sometimes too gaudy IMO, even compared to the French makers.

    JLP, Fosters, and JL SJ are all very good with round toes, IMO.

    I agree with you that their deco and TG73 may seem a bit too much. But I like them :slayer:
