    Some of them are, most are clients I have worked with at various firms over the past 15 years. I've managed the make up of their garments and or measured up/ fitted all of them. Except for Elton who always bought off the rack.

    Gieves and Hawkes, brief spell at Timothy Everest, as the bespoke house manager and Commes Des Garçons.

    Hi David,

    What's your impression of the Everest house cut? How does it compare to Gieves and Hawkes?

    The Gieves cut is kind of neutral Savile row, but a bit military. Timothy is rather influenced by Tommy Nutter and I feel like his cut has a natural incline towards the 70s ie longer coat, wider lapels.

    Of course it depends what you ask them to make you.

    Hey David,

    Does your mtm option include Daks trousers? Never had it done before but was intrigued when I saw Connery pull it off in Bond.

    Yes it does. Lots of options, good patterns, good build.

    Well, I was planning on picking up a MTM Samuelsohn suit (fully canvassed, made in Canada) for roughly the same price point. How would your MTM offering compare to a Canali or Samuelsohn in terms of detail (handstitched button holes, working sleeve buttons, pick stitching, etc) or construction (full canvassing)

    My apologies, I'm not familiar with your brand and would like to know more.
