I’ve had several pieces made at W&S. Do not discount them - Sian, the cutter there is fantastic and is brilliantly adept at understanding the style choices you might suggest outside of w&s’s house style (which is admittedly fairly conservative but then so is most of the row). If you want saville row but can’t stretch to Gieves or Sexton prices IMO, W&S is a great choice.Slightly generic - yes. Not as distinctly English as Poole, Huntsman or C&M, etc. I believe Sexton does a slightly less expensive MtM/Bespoke program where the garment is cut in London but made in Asia - I think.
Brands rebuild themselves all the time. Apple is probably the best example I can think of. Left for dead by the 1990’s, it was able to turn around but it did so based on the vision of its founder.
I wonder if anyone ever bought the Brooks Brothers chopsticks and rice bowl that was like $2000.Brands rebuild themselves all the time. Apple is probably the best example I can think of. Left for dead by the 1990’s, it was able to turn around but it did so based on the vision of its founder.
Brooks will need a vision and someone focused on the brand. Hopefully, gone will be chopsticks and branded golf tees. Gone will be that nasty cologne and the other tchotchkies that littered those ridiculous display cases.
