    I have just had the final fitting and picked up my suit, and I'm absolutely thrilled. It fits beautifully and has exactly the silhouette I was looking for. There are a couple of minor options I'd change if I were doing it again, but I'm very happy with the result.

    I'm shocked at how he can do it for the money. The fabric is beautiful, it's fully canvased and all handmade, yet under £700 a suit. Though I suppose with a small, out-of-centre workshop the overheads aren't great and I doubt he makes that much money.

    A great first foray into bespoke clothes and I have little doubt I'll be ordering a second soon.

    keen to see the pics.

    i went and got measured up at graham browne in the city last week. 10oz charcoal from holland and sherry's target range. 3 roll 2.5

    I'll post pics when I get home tonight. Would be very interested in seeing how the Graham Browne one turns out too.

    I am permanently perplexed how even with all the forums, media and shops we visit, so many men do not understand the difference between MTM and Bespoke.....and cannot buy a suit without their girlfriend, wife or mother. Why do men think that women understand more than trained and experienced tailor?

    My MTM Suit Supply suits are stunning. My requirements for a refined and high quality suit, with attention to detail are second to none. My employers implore me to seek out a company that can provide me with suits like these. Until Suit Supply arrived there was nobody. Forget Roderick Charles, Aquascutum,Gieves, Mark Marengo etc.

    What do you expect from £400? We are not in Hong Kong or Thailand. So many Savile Row stores offer the same MTM (not bespoke) cloth at 30% higher in price, and you don't even get a full canvas construction.

    Don't let the others rip you off. Don't be sucked in by labels, and marketing.

    Be strong..make you're own decision and always better to let your experienced tailor guide you. You wouldn't let your girlfriend/wife/mother make your decisions at work would you?

    If the answer to this question is yes, then Reiss, Ted Baker and Massimo Dutti are not far away. You can let her choose your satuday night outfit, and your Monday-Friday outfit. I am sure she wouldn't object to you helping out with her wedding dress.

    I had a suit made by George Threadneedleman over SE London cost me £1100, He subs work out hence my suit was a fcuk up,

    George of Haringey is a very good Tailor he has made Five suits for me, and rebuilt the suit that was fcuked up by George Threadneedleman.

    But to be honest most tailors these days are no way as good as the tailors of the 60s.

    Is £700 doable for London? Where I live in Sheffield the averages are from £450 to £700 but I don't think you would be able to get that in London.

    Has anyone got any pictures of George of Haringey's suits? I've never heard of him before, but he seems to get good reviews and he's close to where I work. He could be just what I'm looking for for a MTM suit.

    My friend, Eric, had great success with Archer Adams who offers a first suit price of £695.00. I saw his suit last week and it looks fab. Unlike Gieves & Hawkes and many of the others, the Archer Adams
    suit is made in the E.U. according to Eric by very talented tailors.
