Yeah what Spier & McKay seem to be doing with the fabric and cut for the price is kind of amazing.

Thank you for the suggestions! I have purchased shirts from CT but had never considered a suit from them before. These Gramercy suits also look pretty great.

I am glad I'm not the only one with fit issues at Suit Supply. Most of the folks my age who wear suits that I know IRL seem to be addicted to them, but I have not had a good experience online or in their store. There is just something about their pants that is off to me, but I can't quite place it
Suit supply is about following trends to a tee. The rise in their pants is too high and the pant legs are cut narrow. By that I mean super slim fit, shrink wrapped so tightly there's no room for 'the boys' to rest comfortably. Having style isn't about following fashion trends. Welcome to the forum!

I just joined after lurking for far too long. I wanted to share my experiences on Savile Row. Several years ago I was fortunate enough to have a fantastic year (I’m an attorney and I devoted part of my bonus to clothes, shoesand a lovely watch. I thought I’d share my experience and see what those of you who have tried Savile Row have found.

First the watch. I bought a Breguet La Tradition and it has become my go to dress watch. This one has the skeleton that is an almost exact copy of a circa 1800 Breguet pocket watch. Easily one of my favorite splurges ever.

Next, the shoes. I had George Cleverley’s make me a pair of wingtips. They were not cheap -!; it took three fittings, but they are hands down the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.

I had these started in London. I had a business trip there and stayed on for a week vacationing and fitting shoes, shirts and suits. Before I left I made appointments at Cleverley, Emma Willis, Gieves & Hawkes, Henry Poole, Huntsman, Anderson & Sheppard and Dege & Skinner. This was the splurge of a lifetime, to put it mildly.

Emma Willis was a terrific experience. A very detailed fitting session and since I know my favorite style, picking the details was a breeze. The fabrics are Swiss and they are magnificent. It took a half hour to pick but I ended up with three very fine Egyptian cotton fabrics from which I made three solid and one subtle striped shirts. The first arrived as a perfect fit and the others arrived several weeks later, also perfect. What I loved is that they didn’t fight me about the neck size. I like a little bit of room, and they accommodated me. They have held up to repeated laundering and still look and fit perfectly. They are my go to shirt maker now.

I had a blast on Savile Row and I’ll go into more detail in a future post, but my man now is Davide Taub at Gieves & Hawkes. Really, I loved the way all of them came out. It was a close call and they are different suits (I enjoy a bit of variety), but the rapport with Davide was terrific and he knew what I wanted before I did.

I’d love to hear about others’ bespoke experiences.

Hey everyone!

I've been all over gra!led, red!t and the TF disc for a while now. Always see this community mentioned as a great place to buy and sell. Looking to trade some 18E pants and hopefully contribute to some of the community discussions.

Cheers!

Yo,
I am a long-time lurker with a freshly minted account. I thought I would drop in and say hey. Looking forward to engaging with the community. I have historically been a big raw denim and workwear guy but I am looking to get my trouser game up. I was considering giving Spier & Mack a look. Where would be a good place to look for a Spier & Mack referral code around here?

Hello all!

I have been a longtime lurker and am happy to have setup a freshly minted account. I’m a soon-to-be lawyer hoping to bring back classic mens style into the legal profession (and professional/business community more generaly). I plan to share and review MTM and bespoke suiting projects as I begin them with you all.

Looking forward to engaging with everyone!
