    Is it so hard to understand that the question makes no sense? As someone mentioned above, it is like asking 'what is the best restaurant'. There is no answer. There are lots of world-class tailoring houses and they all have different styles, if you like the British military style you can go somewhere like Huntsman, if you like the draped style you can go to A&S or Steed, if you like Parisian style you can go to somewhere like Cifonelli, and of course there are countless Italian tailors in Milan and Naples, Rubinacci and so on, as well as several excellent American tailors like Despos. Some of them cost more than others, but when you are operating on the level of the tailors I have listed, that does not necessarily make them 'better'. If you want one of the most expensive, you can go to Kiton and pay $50,000 for one of their 'K-50' suits, but will it be 'better' than a suit from, say, Despos? That is debatable...

    You guys are retards. He's not asking for fact but opinion. It's a completely legitimate question to ask what your opinion is on the best bespoke service in the world just like someone can ask you in your opinion what the best burger in the world is.

    Bunch of sandy vaginas in this thread.


    You've had a ton of replies in this thread tho

    One of my answers addresses not only this world, but quite possibly, other worlds as well.

    One is a conduit for inter terrestrial communication and the other appears to be RTW. They don't fit this thread

    Yes, I am spry, very spry. Thank you sir.

    I posted this in E&C but watch the whole thing Ed, it will blow your mind. Something to do, a musical interlude, while awaiting the OP to return. If you are impatient, start around 6:00, but the whole thing should not be missed

    the question could be legitimate, but the OP is not. tone and wording makes that abundantly clear.

    If the real pleasure of bespoke lies in the anticipation, there are several SF-approved tailors and a trousermaker who are sure to delight.
