Unfortunately, the Tailors Mark website has a number of red flags for me:Anyone have any experience with Tailorsmark? Been looking for tailors with a good price around Melbourne and they seem to be the only one I have found that fits the bill.
I had my suspicions about their claims, thought I would ask here though to make sure. My knowledge from trying to research tailors in Melbourne has given me "avoid Germanicos" but not much else. I failed to mention that I was searching to get some shirts made first (since I can't for the life of me find an OTR shirt with the style of collar I want), I assume Oscar Hunt will be the best choice for both a suit and shirts?Unfortunately, the Tailors Mark website has a number of red flags for me:
- The suit in the main photo looks awful;
- The front page makes the ludicrous claim that they "make Australia's most exceptional bespoke suits" and yet then says that it takes one visit; and
- It states that your 3D pattern is scanned and printed, but then states that the pattern is "created by hand in Melbourne by master tailors".
In other words, the website features a load of advertising puffery, while the photos don't bear out the claims.
I think established MTO places like Oscar Hunt, which has a good reputation and where prices start at the same price or lower than Tailors Mark, would serve you better.
Hi mate, do you know the price for suits (I provide fabrics)?cheers!Visited Charles Nahkle today at his Castle Hill workshop. Reversed my earlier decision of going OTR, and took the plunge with two more shirts. Both Alumo. Blue stripes on white. One in twill, one in linen-cotton. Still priced about $350 each, which is pretty amazing, given those were his prices back in 2012-2013. Apparently, he’s also teamed up with a guy who used to work with Adamo, and is now taking measurements for suits, made here in Sydney!
Thanks mate! I asked Charles and he told me the suits program is still on trail. If possible, could u please share some places for CMT (I provide fabrics) bespoke pants. I asked M&R tailor, and they charge 320 for it.Sorry... no idea. I go to Charles mainly for shirts. That’s his specialty.
It strikes me as an absurd move. I wonder if the company has been bought out by a major luxe player who believes they can reposition the brand.^Wowsers - an almost 50% price increase. That's almost AUD$1300 at current exchange rates.
That's a heck of a jump, particularly if there is no accompanying increase in quality.
