One of the details I forgot to include in my review was my specification on the height of the gorge. For a notch I like to keep it around 4", generally; for a peak, 5" +. The gorge on their house cut is a little higher than I prefer, I like it lower because I think it provides an apparent structural drape. Lapel width, of course, is a general specification. You are correct; there is no shoulder padding at all, on a hanger there is minimal shirring at the shoulder, but when worn, my shoulders fill it out and it looks really clean.@induere_to love the entire cut and silhouette of the jacket. It’s a great balance of being fitted and flattering, but not overly slim. Love that the gorge isn’t super high as well. The shoulder is great too. Almost looks like the old American style natural shoulder. There’s no padding at all correct?
Is this the house cut? Can this be done MTM or just bespoke? Enjoy it in good health!
As long as Tim measures you you can keep your eyes closed through the entire process and the results will be beyond your expectations!!! The man has more knowledge than many so called bespoke champions put together in Toronto!!
But what is the price difference?So I currently have my Garrison Bespoke suit, and my John Ferrigamo suit is still being made. Here are the differences I have noticed so far.
Garrison Bespoke does muslin fittings on their custom suits. They have a wide variety of fabrics to choose from and I chose a Dormeuil Amadeus light navy fabric. It's a gorgeous fabric but maybe a bit delicate for my needs. The fit of the suit is very nice and trim, but could potentially be a bit snug at times. However, the cut of the suit is great and modern and the tailor was very focused on what I was going for. A nice added touch was a wonderfully hand-sewn Milanese buttonhole.
John Ferrigamo does basted fittings on their custom suits. Their custom suits are cut off of five different patterns. They have a wide variety of fabrics as well and I chose a Holland & Sherry charcoal fabric from their durable line. John Ferrigamo is a little more conservative in the style of the suit, but still does very trim suits. Their specialty seems to be big peak lapels, and their signature is doing buttonholes on both lapels. John Ferrigamo did hand-sewn stitching and buttonholes for my suit.
Your statements seem illogical.Neither of those businesses offer any bespoke whatsoever. Garrison made to measure is made overseas and JF is made in Canada.
Your opinion in what is illogical has nothing to do with legitimate fact.Your statements seem illogical.
Garrison made to measure is made by Coppley, it's made in Canada.
JF is indeed made in Canada, but why is that not bespoke?
Pricing - Garrison Bespoke - made to measure starts from 995, that's from Coppley, period. Below is from Coppley's website:Your opinion in what is illogical has nothing to do with legitimate fact.
Ferrigamo is made in a factory. That doesn’t make it bespoke. Garrison hasn’t been made by coppley in years.
