Hi All,

Does anyone have any experience with A W Bauer in Stockholm? Can't seem to find much and since i'm in Stockholm for a bit was wondering if it's worth thinking about getting something made. Would be great to hear any views on quality, construction, etc. and if they compare to the top English and Italian tailors or more second/third tier?

Thanks!

From what I have gathered the craftsmanship is on par with the top British and Italian tailors, so it's really up to you if you like the house style.

Hi
Manolo.se a Swedish blogg have done a couple reviews and bloggposts about them. Maybe you can find some information there, Google translate could be helpful since they write in Swedish. Good luck

After having worked in the centre of Stockholm for a couple of decades, where the majority of people wearing a suit in Sweden on a daily basis spend their days (if I would venture a guess, it is probably a couple of thousand people, mainly within the financial and legal trades), I have yet to meet anyone who is a customer of AW Bauer. With the exception of a few editorial articles, and a few references on menswear forums, I have never even heard anyone discuss AW Bauer, having been there, or considering commissioning an AW Bauer suit.

To be a viable business, they must at least churn out a hundred or so suits per year? So who wears them?!

Does anyone have a picture of someone actually wearing an AW Bauer suit?

They seem to have absolutely no traction among the Instagrammers of the meanswear world - are they so immensely successful (in the super rich segment? not that large in Sweden), that they don't even need to market themselves?
