Great video, but I got the feeling as if they were talking about bespoke, the way they mentioned custom made and individual paper pattern. Isnt Oxxford mainly RTW ?

The fabric of the glen plaid just before the end looked really nice.

Love the video. So who is running Oxxford these days? Based on the age of their workforce (no surprise really) it looks like they could really use a tailoring school.

I don't see being "the last one" left as a good selling point. The best products were made in times of tense competition. Being the last one just mean you're about to die off. Frankly, from the Oxxfords I've seen I don't think the patterns and shape will work for me.

So you think they should ignore the fact that they are the last company in America that makes clothes this way? I feel like you are missing the point of their argument.

I challenge you to find a European suitmaker that does an equal job to Oxxford; that is non-bespoke.

It's a fair point if you do not like the patterns & shape.

Great video. Only thing is that it would have been nice to show a REAL person wearing the suit at the end. Gotta leave people imagining how it would look on themselves.

This is huge improvement over their previous Mad Maxxford ad campaign.

It's not a bad video, but the whole "bespoke" angle just seems misguided. I also wonder if they couldn't have found SOMEONE post-1950s who's been known to wear their suits -- Clark Gable and Joe DiMaggio aren't exactly huge names to conjure with these days.

I'm curious what percentage of Oxxford's suits are MTM vs. OTR. Do their MTM suits start at $5k? NM has an Oxxford MTM program, but I would not trust a salesperson to measure me for a suit at that price point.

Would you feel more impressed if they said Mike Tyson or Justin Timberlake wears their suits?
