    In the destructivly honest style that is so unique on this forum I say. Go to Naples and see Cesare Attolini.

    Or you could even go to Naples to see a real tailor, and not a big factory who doesn't really do bespoke [​IMG] (destructively honest style)

    Destructivly stupid style you mean. Cesare Attollini takes the measure himself at his workshop.

    To answer the original question, go where you like the basic cut which is offered.

    do searches here, askandyaboutclothes.com, thelondonlounge.net, etc. Many, many threads on Savile row tailors, prices, cuts, etc. I've used Huntsman and Poole

    I want a bespoke suit in london.......Do i go for Hunstman ,Kilgour French Stanbury ,Chester Barrie or Boateng?
    Any advice ?
    Thank you for any information



    I can only comment as to my personal experience.

    I recommend Davies & Son, 38 Savile Row. Speak to Alan Bennett.

    Otherwise, I haven't used the other tailors listed.

    Good luck.
