    make this into a poll and list at least 12 countries and it will be a better thread.

    +1. I think I could deal with living in Solomeo and take delivery of a new batch of Cuci' every few months. Now who wants to finance my move?

    England is the clear winner; Savile Row for suits, Jermyn St. for Shirts, Northampton made shoes, Huddersfield for cloth.

    No other country can cater to such a range of fine wares. The Italians may have tailoring down, but are their Shirts, Shoes and Cloths up to scratch (with the natural exception of a few brands).

    Paris has Leather and Shirts, but suits? Not so sure.
