    Hello everyone,
    Iam from czech Rep. We dont have so much good shops with suits or shirts. We have only Tm Lewin but its overpriced.
    So want to go on a trip to London buy some shirts and suit. :) iam 27 years old modern guy.
    Suit europe size- 48(38 UK) slim fit
    Shirt size - 15,5- 16 inch slim fit

    1)I want to ask you when the sales in Jermyn street are.
    2)Turnbull&Asser and H&K i cant afford :) So i am thinking about CT or H&H. What about quality CT and H&H? I need few nice formal white shirts and few casual.
    3)Suit- my maximum is 500£. I was thinking about Crombie something on sale or Suitsupply.
    Something stylish. :)

    Thank you so much for advice. :)

    HI! You don´t think about Slaters?. You can find some stylish suits, modern fit, and really good quality, and the staff is really helpfull. If you asking for quality they show you best thing, and still are affordable, according to my experience. (Last time I bought a Navy suit for special, and many collegues asking me where I buy that suit[​IMG].
    I tell you because I wear suits everyday and try in many brands and shops, and less you want something for special occasion, or your pocket let you buy more expensive suits.
    Good luck in your search.
    Kind Regards
    Diego

    Try Emmett for some very nice RTW shirts - I have a few and they are as good as anyything you can buy on Jermyn Street outside the priciest places (such as T&A).

    Cordings do a very well made RTW suit, but selection can be limited. Also try New & Lingwood (shirts are good there too) or, for a cheaper option, Roderick Charles is a good bet.

    Was in London for a week. Got back yesterday.
    CT and H & H always seem to be on sale. H & H
    shirts quite decent for the price. Also check out
    Cordings for very English "country" patterns and
    business dress shirts- not slim.

    If you compare quality of CT, HH, HC, Thomas Pink, who offers better quality?

    Probably H & H.
    However the last lot I purchased were probably
    10 years ago. I have no idea whether the very decent
    quality has been maintained. I do not wear dress shirts
    regularly so mine last a long time. I usually pick up H &K
    in their semi annual sales. Next one post Xmas.
