Just wanted to share photos of my bespoke suit. Would love to get your opinions.

Here are some features of the jacket:

One button jacket - with inside dinner button (in case I eat too much, must hide the buldge!)

Semi-peak with DOUBLE lapel button holes with matching blue color on both (rarely done, but a sweet touch)

Pick Stiching (in every possible part of the suit allowed), including lapel & front pocket

Slanted pockets, which includes a ticket pocket

All the button holes and button theads match the blue stripe on the suit.

Slanted working button holes (trademark of a Bespoke Suit)

Beautiful paisley lining (a Michael Andrews Bespoke specialty)- the slanted pockets also contain the paisley lining

Matching blue felt lining under the collar

Label: Custom Designed and Tailored for me by Michael Andrews Bespoke

None of the photos shows how it fits ... which is more important than gaudy contrast pick stitching :p (personal preference, I know). Slanted sleeve button holes are .. interesting.

What do you think of THIS suit?




PS Next time, don't write your post as if it was written by a marketing staff. Maybe we'll think it's legit.

I like a lot of the hidden details. The high contrast stitching doesn't do it for me but it might not be translating well in the photos. If you can take pics in the daylight that don't require the on camera flash it would help.

You should try to post some pics of the fit.

If you want to advertise, buy ad space.

It seems you do have business links with MAB, which is why you should disclose your relationship before starting a thread like this.

Spam accusations aside, I'm interested in seeing the whole thing on your body. A bunch of detail pictures are not really that impressive. The forum places a lot of emphasis on the quality of the fit.

As for the styling details ... they're unusual but not to my taste.

In marketing lingo "designed by _" means that it was made in China after someone (aka "the Designer Genius") added minor "designer" tweaks to a standard proportionate pattern out of a pattern making book. The "bespoke" thing is usually just hype.

I like the lining


As for the contrast stitching, one thing using it may be a acceptable flourish, but all the buttonholes and the pick-stitching on the lapels and pockets? Quite frankly it looks ridiculous...
