A question on CATD and its relationship with noted London cutters Jon DeBoise and Michael Brown has perplexed me for awhile, and I wanted to get the SF memberships thoughts. CATD offers a full bespoke suit at 950 gbp - an attractive price that is well below its Savile Row peers, and comparable to Graham Browne and Chris Kerr. I'm told that this is truly a bespoke product (custom pattern, Huddersfield cloth, multiple fittings, SR levels of handwork), with the one caveat that some of the handwork is performed at CATD facilities in Asia. However, and this is where it gets interesting, if one visits CATD in London you can request either Jon DeBoise (the older brother of Edwin DeBoise of Steed) or Michael Brown (of Chittleborough & Morgan) to measure, cut and subsequently fit your CATD bespoke suit. This leads to my $64K question - why would one pay 1,750 gbp for DeBoise's services via Castle Tailors (his company in the City), or 3,200 gbp for Brown's skills at C&M, when the same product can be had for substantially less via CATD? The only difference appears to be the fact that some of the CATD suit is constructed in Asia. If the construction there is up to snuff (and I've read nothing to indicate that it isn't), what accounts for the substantial price difference? Put more bluntly, why would anyone pay Castle or Chittleborough prices when they can access the skills of their cutters for far less? What am I missing?
