Hi, everyone. Since a trip to Naples is highly unlikely, I may just get a suit in London. Could you offer me names of good tailors in London? My budget is quite tight, around £2000 on a two-piece suit.

An ideal type: conventional style, hand-work, good fabric, decades of experience, deeply-rooted and acclaimed by community rather than flashy labels.

I'm slight of build and want my suit to give me the impression of a wider frame, the "Sharp“ look.



Thank you all.

Regards

Is

£2k is not a tight budget. You will find a lot of mtm and bespoke in that price range.

Difficult to suggest someone without knowing the style you want

London tailors are shite. You need to travel to Champaign, Illinois, the fashion capital of the West.



Edit: Ever heard of Savile Row?

He won't get bespoke on Savile Row for £2k. Fairly close, but certainly not close enough for his "tight budget". MTM, for sure, but he also wanted handwork, and he won't typically get much of that with the Savile Row MTM operations. I think one or two might do an MTM variant with handwork, but not most. He'd probably get MTM with handwork from some of the higher-end Italian brands, but I think he'll also be paying more than £2k for that.

For London handwork on a strict sub-£2k budget, he'll have to go off-Row. That's not a problem; many of these tailors produce a very good product. But it helps to get advice on which to go to. There've been a few threads on the board on some of them; I don't have the personal experience to recommend one in particular.

To be honest, I'm not really convinced the OP really knows what he wants, but that's another post...
