    MTM shirtmakers in London

    Some of your list is bespoke & some mtm, while some places offer both, mtm & bespoke. You missed other shirt options, although they are above your price range. I tried two shirts from Stephan over 5 yrs ago, the stitching was off in places & was not worth the cost. I was better off getting rtw...

    Any other shoemakers to consider in the CJ/Carmina price point/quality?

    Cheaney would be in your price bracket, for their better quality shoes.

    Warm Trousers?

    Flannel trousers as mentioned, but don't forgot a warm jacket If you have not worn heavy trousers before, try out a pair first and lining does make a difference too. I don't think I could wear a fully lined flannel trousers even in very cold weather, although I an wear 14oz half-lined flannel...

    yes or no to this leathe blazer look ????

    You have it all wrong, you need to go out all out and get a leather suit :satisfied: If you are going to wear a shirt with a leather blazer/jacket/coat, keep it casual (e.g. buttoned collar) and dont wear a tie.

    Recommended cobbler to resole in London

    You can pay less, but it would be a lower quality resole What range of Barker's and Loakes are the shoes from, if their are from the lower ranges probably not worth re-soling. I once got two pairs of shoes resoled from a local cobbler and even though the shoes were worn as 'kick-abouts' I...

    Bicester village

    Start at Ralph Lauren, look for the Black label range; if you are lucky, you may find something in your size. It may cost more than £300, possibily upto £450. After that, go to any of the other stores. Bicester it is not busy during the week; however, with the it being half-term for schools...

    Tailor for summer wedding attire in London?

    As mentioned, i. budget, ii. why no jacket Another issue to consider is that tailors/shirtmakers get busy from Spring. Depending when in the summer the wedding is, you may need to book something soon. A two-piece suit in a casual shade would be a lot better than a waistcoat/trouser comno

    Semi-Affordable Suit Tailors in London

    Not a good idea Spend that money on mtm with someone location, or if you find something rtw that works for you get it tailored. If you really want a British 'brand' then many tailors do visit the United States and many offer mtm - personally, avoid this.

    Ideally, no; however, still ok, as long as you follow a set routine (pair 1, pair 2, pair 3; repeat)

    Recommendations for solid navy suiting

     As above. If your budget allows, go for Lesser 11oz cloth - I have two suits from this book for all-year-round-wear

    Heavy Weight Wool Trousers?

    Have you considered flannel, they feel warmer compared to worsted wool? From my own experience, there is not much difference between 14oz and 16oz cloth; however, i have tried 18oz - it would feel warmer, but how much warmer I do not know. Are you just looking at rtw options?
