OK, I am a little confused. This is supposed to be one of the better known UK brands, and their "nearly bespoke suit" is less than US$ 450??

Is this a decent suit to buy? Fully lined? Details not available on the site, so would appreciate some experiences people have had, especially in recent times.

Thx

Looks to me that it is just a RTW product that happens to have a store located on Savile Row. Everything else is just marketing BS.

This is a company called Savile Row, they are just trying to confuse the uninformed. Savile Row is a street in London known for it's bespoke tailors. Does this place even have a physical store?

You're confused? I'm even more confused.

What a day! The large lady at Nº 15 (shouldn't this be Henry Poole?) started shouting at my suggestion of a quick sponge & press. Called me a pervert and all sorts of things. Just managed to disappear before the fuzz arrived.

You dunce!

You were supposed to go to 'Savile Row' (single 'l') and you ended up in 'Saville Row' (double 'l').

According to google maps, in the UK. there is one 'Saville Row' in Bromley and another one in Bath,

Or did you end up in Saville Row, Barrington Hills, IL, USA?
