    Recently I've been planning to buy an overcoat for the coming winter, and decided that I should probably go for a mtm one.(no point for bespoke as the heavy cloth just drapes right over) I'm living quite near London, so savile row seems to be a good option for me, but I have no idea what price range does a mtm overcoat start with, is it below or over £2k(which is my budget),, and which house should I choose? Any advice?

    Most Savile Row tailors will look down on MTM as though it had been trodden in on someone's feet. You would be better off-row with the likes of Cad and the Dandy and Graham Browne who should both be within your budget.

    Personally I would avoid CATD - I had a dreadful experience with them on what was essentially an MTM workhorse suit and they had very little interest in putting it right.

    Couch & Hoskin in the City do a good MTM service and I would imagine they would do an MTM overcoat well under 2k. Their bespoke would be more expensive, but it is high quality and still good value compared to the Row.

    Graham B is OK, but can be hit and miss. Low price for full bespoke but the construction (from the couple of suits I have had there) leaves a but to be desired. Choppin and Lodge, also in the City, is similar to G.B but I have found them a little better in terms of construction at marginally higher cost.
