    Hi,
    I am looking for RTW workhorse suits in the greater London area. I travel a lot for work so suits get a lot of wear and tear, not looking for anything like RLPL. My budget is £250-£300/suit. Caveat is that I have a 36R chest and 31" waist, the 30 waist taken out looks funny I need a 32" taken in to make it work.

    Most RTW suits are a 6 inch drop, someone who sells seperates might work better for me. Checked out Suit Supply, but their RTW is only 6 inch drop, their MTM is about £350 and taken 6 weeks, not convienced their suits are worth the premium over the likes of TM Lewin, CT, etc. A lot of people at work wear the TM Lewin but those are easily ID-ed by the cheap buttons they use on their suits. I Lewin suits do have a nice slim fit though.

    Thanks

    For that purpose / price, I dont think you'll do better than Marks & Spencer. They seem to have lines in the Marble Arch store that don't appear anywhere else.

    This. Changing buttons can easily be done by any tailor, or yourself if you've got the inclination.
