Doing a review of my current wardrobe, I have recently decided that while I have enough quantity of suits, it is time to start to step up the quality. At the beginning of this year, I decided (and budgeted) for one custom suit by the best tailor I could find. In my travels here and on AA, the two custom tailors that have consistently appeared on the top of most lists are Darren and Raphael. Knowing that the best results are obtained when you have an ongoing relationship with the tailor, making the choice between the two was no small matter for me, as the next ten suits I order will likely be from this one person. After little progress after weighing all of the pros and cons of each, with much prodding from my girlfriend and much juggling in my annual budget, I have made the decision to have BOTH make me a suit concurrently, and then make an intelligent decision on who to stick with after all factors are considered (eg, fit, quality, price, service, etc.). I just had my first meeting with Darren last Saturday, and will have my first meeting with Raphael this Saturday. To be fair to both parties, I will make my first report next week after I have met with both. I will then provide updates on an ongoing basis. After I receive both suits, I will tell everyone who I have decided upon and why. I hope that at least some here would find this helpful, if not at least entertaining.
