MTM Wedding Suit: Redmayne 1860 or Norton & Sons?

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a summer navy suit to wear to my wedding, but also something that I can wear to future events or big days at work. I'm about 6ft 187lbs, athletic build, so bit bigger on the thighs and chest/shoulders.

I really want an English cut/experience, similar to the A&S style. I've spent months researching online different tailors. Also visited most the shops on the Row.
Budget is around £2K so looking at MTM.

Narrowed it down to 2 (based on online reviews, reputation, style etc.)

Norton & Rose MTM £2,100 - not really discussed on these forums at all. Had a friendly chat when I visited the store. I'm not sure if the MTM offering is something new since they were recently bought out by the owners of Cad & The Dandy (whom I've already ruled out). Maybe it's the same India workshop, anyone tried it?

Redmayne MTM £1,650 (or Acclaim £2,095) - a few discussions in the A&S thread. Tom has a great reputation. Not sure if it's worth extra for the Acclaim?

Please let me know if you have any suggestions. I've also considered P Johnson, but I could get that back home in Australia so not as exciting for me.

I don't have pictures just yet but I was in a similar boat as you a few months ago. I went with Redmayne (Acclaim) and am so happy I did--seeing even the "rough draft" of the suit yesterday, it looks great. When I get the finished suit I will post pictures. In the meantime, I would say the pictures you see on Redmayne's site (and their Instagram) are accurate depictions of what they do. I went with them because of their lapel dimensions and their lower button stance, which I found flattering, and because of Tom's experience, which was reassuring.

Hey thanks for sharing. Sounds like you made a solid choice and the stuff I've seen online about Redmayne & Tom have been very positive. Interested to see how it turns out.

I ended up committing a style forum sin and went with Cad and the Dandy for a "bespoke" suit. I just couldn't get a time with Redmayne soon enough and the cutter at Cad and the Dandy also works at Norton & Sons so seemed good enough for me. Will also share results.

Cheers

My suit pants were perfect but jacket was small and unwearable when I received my MTM order in Feb order was placed in Nov’23.

So in April when they came to LA. I took my suit to them and they figured out what they need to fix it. They took my jacket and now I will have to wait till they ship it again.

If you have a deadline you should take it into account for any bespoke or MTM for the first time with a tailor.

Was this Norton or Redmayne?

Redmayne. However in my experience your tailor may not get the perfect fit in the very first round and there might be iterations.
