    It's not centered, I don't think the rainbow design is appropriate, and I think the font looks very un-modern, like it should be on the screen of an Atari or something. Sorry, just being honest.

    zipj83, When you're right, you're right:
    It's not centered, I don't think the rainbow design is appropriate, and I think the font looks very un-modern, like it should be on the screen of an Atari or something.

    Also, black background logos are an impossibility to work with in 90% of the situations in which logos are used. Also, there is nothing about it besides the words which says "bespoke tailor".

    In short, it is a beautiful logo design ... just not for a tailoring business specializing in an 'old-world art.

    I like all of them, though the bottom one is too Thomas Pink. Th top two are very nice.

    My personal favorite is the second one. Very understated, classy and elegant, befitting master tailor Darren Beaman.

    I also prefer newyorker's middle logo. Nice.

    I disagree. With all due respect, Bank Gothic font doesnt work with Savile Row. EDIT: I should add, I think the second is my least preferred, not that the logo design isn't good. The first is my favorite. [​IMG]

    I think I'll hold fast with the Bauhaus for awhile - I like the 'old & new' feel ... but thank you for the offer. [​IMG]

    Alex,

    I think you owe him a .jpg of one of your shirts.

    I like Brian's the best ... but would put a slight shadow on the Darren Beaman part.

    Although newyorker's middle one is a close second. It that Bankers or Engravers?

    This thread is fun [​IMG] Shadows on logos are in my honest opinion not a good idea. And perhaps it is not a coincidence that there are no famous logos with shadow effects.
