    Dear all,

    I am what your guide to buying a suit describes as "has clothes, but none of them are suits", and I need to buy one within the next 3 months. While this particular occasion is attending a wedding in August, this is likely to be my only suit, used maybe twice a year (for a family Christmas dinner, maybe some professional occasion and weddings/funerals - I don't like suits and am not going to wear them if I can avoid it; but I do want to look presentable when I have to wear one), so let's just say I need a plain 2-piece navy suit (single breasted two button jacket) from (a finer?) wool.

    I would like to ask for your recommendations as to what brands should I consider with good quality to price ratio, as I have no idea about the English market. I live in Yorkshire (where this whole business of making fabrics really took off ;-) and can access the area between Manchester, York and Sheffield. My budget is about 400 pounds and I am 178cm / 58kg if this is useful in this context.

    cheers
    yot

    This might be of only limited value to you but during my Yorkshire days when I worked in Huddersfield discussing suits one day it was suggested that I try cj-antich.com

    At the time - a couple of years ago - you could visit and try on from a selection of jackets and trousers.

    They have a webstore - antichfinetailors.co.uk - although it doesn't appear to give an indication of prices for RTW. May be worth a call.
