    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.

    Hmmm. Honest question? I don't think so.

    You are looking for "some" bespoke suits and you heard that Hardy Amies has the best ones.

    So you probably don't have any bespoke suits. Do you know what a bespoke suit is? Why do you suddenly need "some" bespoke suits. Do you currently wear suits? If you do, and are now looking for "some" bespoke suits, one would think that you already wear sufficiently expensive OTR or MTM suits, especially as "money is not the problem". Surely one of your visits to whatever department store you buy your suits from, if you do buy suits, probably got some sales associate excited enough to up sell you something better. And that never led to MTM or bespoke for some of those Italian labels or even the ubiquitous RL brand?

    Money is not the problem. Flash? Arrogance? Either you spent your money on other things before and now have taken a fancy to purchasing some bespoke suits, or perhaps even the idea of acquiring bespoke suits. Are you suddenly trying to pass yourself as someone else, change identity, acquire a new persona? Or is it something else?

    If money is really not the problem, knock on every door on Savile Row and get one bespoke suit made. Or do the same in Homg Komg, Milan or wherever else. One suit, or the service from one establishment may appeal to your sensibilities. And the you can get "some" more bespoke suits made up for you.

    How about my question to you
    I am looking for some bespoke shotguns. Money is not the problem. I heard that Purdey has the best ones.

    So, I want to know from you, where can I find the best bespoke shotgun?

    Sounds pretty ridiculous doesn't it. Or maybe your are not a native speaker of English, in which case something has been lost in translation. In which case I apologize in advance.

    Come on, is it so hard to answer the thread question?

    Is It so hard to understand that money isn't a problem for me?

    If you don't want to answer, no problem, you can just leave with these hyperbolic questions.

    Yes, I cetainly think it is.


    Money no problem...
    What's the best bespoke service in the world?
    What's the best car in the world?
    What's the best watch in the world?
    What's the best pen in the world?
    What's the best shoes in the world?
    What's the best hotel in the world?
    What's the best laptop in the world?

    AFAIK questions with no definitive answers. Any answers will just be opinions, not facts. Also just because something is the most expensive in the world, does NOT necessarily mean it's the best.

    its easy, if you have the cash and want to burn it I can provide a service thats out of this world we will travel to thailand, HK, and among other places I will take you to 3 places at each country to get the best suit that will move you like water does to its environment. Everyone will look at you like you are gold with these suits on, but the kicker is that its gonna be at your expensve, but I provide a superior service all over others because I promise your satisfaction....HOWS THAT?

    I understand completely.

    You should go with Mario Zuccala or Recep Cesur.
