There is a cloth that for the longest time I considered having made-up as an odd coat (sport coat) ... but could never bring myself to pull the trigger. I just didn’t know if it was right for me. And yes, I know that’s saying a lot given my taste. Be that as it may … I bought the cloth and sent it to a "tailor of a lesser God" (one neither on Savile Row nor in Naples) to be made up as a trial/test coat. My thought ... if I like the look ... I would purchase more cloth and send it along to London for the real thing. Well, the trial/test coat is in ... and I like it. But ... I also have a dilemma ... I'm no longer at all certain that I need the “real thing.” This may well suffice just as is ... and be my real thing. I'm not saying I’d never need or use high-end bespoke again ... but 90% of the time ... this really could work. I imagine my confession will get me expelled from some bespoke circles. And some SF & AAAC members may never speak to me again ... but ... oh well, c'est la vie. In England you can get Bespoke for at least half of what you pay on Savile Row, regardless of what anyone on here says and in many cases the make is better than on Savile Row you just need to know where to look. With Savile Row part of what you're paying for is the history and the ceremony, but these don't make it a better suit, probably just a 'better' overall experience. Once you're wearing your suit/coat most will not know or care about it's genus, they'll just see a well cut garment, which is ultimately what you want. After speaking to friends and seeing personally the work of many of the Saville Row elite there is only one tailor on there who I'd be willing to try.
