Hi!
Some time ago i came across a brand named "Gutteridge 1878". The clothes look great and I'm thinking about buying a pair of trousers and maybe a corduroy blazer from them.

I was wondering if anyone had experience and opinions on Gutteridge 1878. The quality of clothes, shipping and so on. Or if anyone has an alternative brand somewhere in the same price range.

Thanks in advance.

I only have experience with their ties. I live in NY, but bought a few when I was in Milan many, many years ago. They design was top notch. The quality is not terrible, but nothing to write home about. Probably on par with H&M or Zara IMO. Like I said, I appreciate their design aesthetic. They have a low price point for that style of clothing.

I once went to the location in Naples. Personally wasn't that impressed with the clothing and think you can find better options nowadays.

I, too, discovered them recently. The quality is decent (although they tend to exaggerate it), and the prices are good when on sale. Unfortunately, I’ve returned almost everything I got. Jackets too slim, trousers too low, footwear very bad quality. In general, if you have a slim body and want something cheap that “kinds” of look good, go for it. In that same level, I prefer Massimo Dutti, also very fashion forward but sometimes a bit more conservative. Otherwise stick to suitsupply or spier and Mackay.

Agree. Very inexpensive and a much more ‘classic menswear with a twist’ style than most things of that price range. But quality is pretty poor (Zara level) and the fits are very skinny/short.

Did you order from their website? I've heard that their customer service isn't that great.

Well.. I just sent the items back and got the money refunded. When I’ve talked to them through WhatsApp they answer promptly, but I really haven’t had any problems with them so I don’t know.

I have a few things from them due to the very attractive price point, though am no longer satisfied with the quality to keep buying. Still, they probably can't be beat in design for this cheap (particularly during sales), some items are indeed very nice, particularly military jackets.
I picked up a very nice partially self-lined linen field jacket for very very cheap, and it's the main piece from them I still like to this day, in addition to a couple polos with shirt-like contrasting chambray collar. But they also had another nice field jacket in cotton, except the sizing proportions made no sense at all (the 50 somehow felt both large and snug, despite me being somewhere between 46 and 48 in most brands), with side-access pockets so tight only a baby could actually access them; also, a sahariana-styled washed linen one where the belt was clearly too large to be cinched at all (I showed this to the sales assistant, assuming the belt had been mismatched, but instead he claimed, straight faced, that the belt is not meant to be cinched. Not kidding).
Their tailoring is super slim and short and just generally bad, not even on their model looks good unless you are into that tight look pulling everywhere.
Their trousers are too tapered for my taste, though being very affordable, could be cost-effective if one likes that look - I have a pair in linen-tencel blend (washable!) which feels nice in the summer, for that price point ofc.
Their footwear is terrible, I bought a pair of white sneakers on clearance on some 75% off, but despite being full leather, they are super uncomfortable and would not buy them again at any price, no point in super-uncomfortable sneakers.
Finally, and comically given the super slim tailoring, the knitwear is too baggy in the waist for me, though at least looks nice (no idea on durability).

Bonus: they have a tendency to style their models with ankle-length trousers, waistcoats and belts (!). Despite being one of the very few brands at this price point that actually produces some trousers with side-tabs, ironically (I know because I looked everywhere for those).
