    This thread rather succinctly sums up the decline of Styleforum.

    Absolutely correct, it needed to be said. This has been a sad decline on a commercial altar.

    My contribution to this thread was very useful, nevertheless.

    Starting prices for two-piece suits from fairly inexpensive cloths (e.g., VBC 110) would be close to $1,300 (U.S.), I think. For a lot of the good British cloths, I believe the range these days would be $1,600 to $1,800. If you get into luxe fabrics, cashmere blends and such, the price can be considerably more than that.

    Why do you want bespoke suits, what are you looking for?

    Have you considered making your own suits?

    I would suggest starting small, like with a straightjacket first.

    I know Bijan just died a few months ago, but trying calling his shop in Beverly Hills for the best suits all around.

    If it's good enough for kings and sultans, it'll be good enough for you.

    Actually, if money and travel were no obstacles, I might be tempted to try Henry Poole. It is such an esteemed and venerable tailoring house. Moreover, if their suits were good enough for such diverse notables as Napoleon III, Kaiser Bill and Buffalo Bill, they should surely be plenty good for the likes of me!

    This reply is excellent in many ways, but the best perhaps being that one of the 'tailors' recommended is really just an MTM outfit.

    Such a useless thread [​IMG]

    I think it's probably like asking, what's the best restaurant in world? Everyone's opinion will be different. Some might suggest the best bespoke is found in Savile Row, some might suggest Milan, some might suggest New York, some might suggest Hong Kong.
