Interesting you should say that about SR. I've been bumping into the guy who manages (and owns?) HP quite frequently at social occasions recently, and I have to say the way he dresses in abominable. Considering the global prestige of the House, the sight of him has had me turning in my sleep for months. In addition to that, a friend of mine had a suit made up by Norton & Sons not too long ago. He was drawn there by the personality of Patrick Grant and the overall branding of the House (traditional yet open minded, their love for English cloth, their links to the fashion world, &c.) and he was really disappointed with the result. I don't think the suit they made him looks bad, but the armholes were lowish and the overall body was a bit flaccid. Certainly disappointing for £3.5k-ish. I've also seen recent examples of G&H, and they're pretty crap (I know they're Chinese-owned now). And I've seen a suit made recently by Kilgour [French & Stanbury], and it pales in comparison to the KF&S suits my grandfather had made 30-40 years ago. I'm too young to go bespoke yet, but I've been planning my first few bespoke suits recently and Savile Row is looking less and less appealing. I know that A&S, HH, Dege, and Steed still (generally) get very good press, but I'm leaning more and more towards Italian tailors. And I'm a born & raised Londoner/Home Countier. @topic I've been very impressed with Korean tailoring and style recently - at least with the images floating around the blogosphere. Your suit looks like its going come out brimming with Italian panache. Very nice.
