    Here's my situation:
    - I get most, if not quite all, of my clothing bespoke; and am pretty pleased with the value equation that bespoke represents
    - When it comes to trousers, however, the typical Savile Row price tag (+£700) has so far put me off buying bespoke odd trousers
    - Instead, I buy trousers from a variety of RTW makers, but the fit is never quite right and I feel limited by the styles and fabrics offered

    So, I am after any recommendations for sources for 'cheap' tailored trousers (perfectly happy to pay £300 or thereabouts for basic cords, twills, chinos; and a bit more for flannels). Can be either online (but how reliable are these onlines tailors when it comes to following measurements) or from a London-based tailor.

    Any ideas?

    Cordings for corduroy trousers. They're excellent.
