    Can anyone provide details with specifics on their offerings? I understand there are dress shirts, knit and woven sport shirts, 10 styles of trousers (ghurka?), and fantastic ties.

    Has anyone visited the shop yet? I've been a few times recently and the quality of what's on offer is really quite special.
    I'm surprised there's so little talk about this place, because it has all the makings of a Style Forum mecca.

    Which items grabbed your attention most from your visits as most special and unique? Also, could you detail specifics as to the dress shirts on offer--collar styles, fabrics, etc.?

    The taste level on offer was great all across - of particular note were the pocket squares and ties (quite a few lightly-lined wool ties, and linen / wool squares). A couple of heavy cashmere / wool turtlenecks looked excellent as well - I think those were on offer for about 150 pounds, which is cheaper than brands like SNS Herning, and way cheaper than the Italians.

    From what I have read, the trousers are about £350.

    I do like the idea of a trousers shop, especially when considering buying bespoke sports jackets and then getting 2/3 trousers per jacket. However, £350 is a lot for RTW (not as expensive as Tom Ford, remember seeing a pair of Tom Ford trousers in Harrods for £520 five years ago) when they are 'bespoke' options by the likes of Sims starting at only £40 more.

    I have been planning to go the shop the last few times I have been in London, but always run out of time.

    I am very interested. Needless to say the link does not work.
    Nor have I found another link via Google

    There's no online shop anyway, just a small info page telling you: "we sell trousers, plus some other accessories".

    They have 3 styles at the moment; however, there will be getting more coming shortly with the 4th style being delivered some time next week. Besides trousers, sweaters, accessories etc, they have some polos, shirts, coats, dark navy smoking jacket and morning formal wear.

    It is a nice shop and it is more of a 'weekend-wear' shop - wear your bespoke A&S suits in the week and for your more casual weekend-wear go to Clifford Street. Interestingly no jackets, they think the customer would have a few bespoke jackets for the weekend.

    Trousers have belt loops or buckle side-adjusters, they will be getting trousers with fishtail back for braces soon. They have the usual cords and moles in casual colours like med-navy, blue, green, red, yellow, orange; flannel in light and charcoal grey; smart summer cotton in navy; and they even showed me a pair of black mole trousers. They will be getting a delivery for smart pleated trousers next week and got the impression they will be getting more smart trousers in conservative shades, especially in their autumn collection. All the trousers are made in Italy; however, I did not ask about other garments in the shop.

    I did not look at the shirts in detail, the website does mention business shirts; A&S have normally recommended Budd (and Turnbull & Asser), they could expand their range or more likely reccommend customers looking for rtw shirts to Clifford Street and custom shirts to Budd.

    It really is a great little store, I was there last month and bought a couple of squares while waiting to be fitted by David Mason. I'll have to post pics later.

    I will be in central London in 3/4 weeks time, will check up on the shop again to see their new stock; the only thing that did tempt me was the smoking jacket (did not check price) but I am always tempted when I see a nice smoking jacket.

    Their knitwear and jumpers is great. It is a shop for inspirations, frankly I don't think they can attract bespoke customers for their weekend wardrobe.
