I am not sure if this has been brought up on here, but I am curious to know what some people's feelings are on this. Thomas Mahon an avid supporter of bespoke clothing is going to be offering MTM and RTW. It seems strange coming from him because of his passion for bespoke, not just his bespoke, but bespoke in general. Any thoughts? Here is the excerpt from his site: This year English Cut will change expectations again. We believe we can make a true made to measure and ready to wear alternative. I know some people will say they've heard this before and quite frankly I don't blame them, because so have I. All I ask is that you trust me. It's your opinion that matters so let me first give you the basic facts and an outline of what our new range will achieve. If you have opinions or would ultimately like to try our collection please let me know and we'll get some of you wearing our clothes. This will of course be the real test of our workmanship. Here's my simplified manifesto on what you should expect of our English Cut clothes. Myself and Paul Griffiths (our head coatmaker) have worked personally over the last year on designing the pattern, cut and construction. Everything is made exclusively for English Cut and no other houses. Hand made, as our bespoke, fully canvassed with hand buttonholes etc. English fabrics and the best trimmings available.Most importantly, they're to be as close as possible to our bespoke. Capturing the natural look and feel which is of no comparison to what's currently available. My last statement regarding the feel is arguably the most important factor. It's certainly how our clothes feel that have kept us full to capacity throughout this miserable depression that's seen so many tailors struggling. I know our new range have this quality as my existing clients have told me so. Of course this had to be my first stop to get an honest opinion. I can promise you that my clients of several years thought they were trying on one of our own jackets made here in our workshops. In the end you want to know the cost of these, well here you are. A made to measure will be around Â£1400 ($2200) and ready to wear at Â£1100 ($1700). Initially I'll be measuring for these in the UK and USA. We'll also be providing a ready to wear selection at smaller specialised men's outfitters, again here in the UK and also in the US (if that may be you, please let me know). Before you ask I will continue as we are and why not, this is what we love to do. I do hope however that our hard work will make life a little more pleasant and affordable for you. We have no intentions of marketing these clothes on a huge budget with models, magazines and other trendy media. We wont need to. As we've always done, we'll let the clothes do the talking for us.
