    I picked up a Timothy Everest on eBay. It was MTM or bespoke. It's a fabulous suit. It's not traditional, but if the alterations come back even halfway decent, this will likely be my favorite suit.

    I was concerned that Everest was going to be all design and light on quality, but this is a solid suit even if the design is a bit forward. I think it would be worth the time to check out what they have to offer.

    In RTW, I think Kilgour now has the best quality of the three you name.

    I was going to go bespoke with Timothy Everest and Richard James is quite expensive en bespoke....
    I'm more used to do bespoke for shoes ,G&G and Anthony Delos and this tuesday will be my first step into that world...
    I want a dark navy blue super 140 and a charcoal gray with a bit of mohair in it....
    Any advice or tailor names?

    A fellow Delos customer? Hm.

    Henri de la Piscine is quite good.

    Any particular reason you want Super 140s?

    I've heard only good things about Kilgour's entry-level bespoke.

    There is nothing about Richard James', Everest's or Kilgour's cut that a good tailor at a different establishment cannot provide -- all provide some variation on a classic waisted British cut. I'd recommend Henri de la Piscine, as he comes to Paris quite often for fittings.

    I'm living in the south-east of England and London is the easiest route to my sartorial heart....
    Even if i do know my bespoke shoes artisans ,i do struggle with the more complicated and subtle world of bespoke tailoring....
    Richard James is a bit expensive and at £2600 ++ vta ,my desire has been a bit dented...
    Timothy Everest and Kilgour are offering suits at £2200 /2300 and that is more in my comfort zone....
    Do you advise me Kilgour or Everest in terms ofcut .design and also materials?
    Anthony and Tony are actually making me working overtime to finance my little bespoke babies...

    t'es francais?

    Je te conseille Kilgour, largement parce que je n'ai rien entendu de la qualite de la mesure Everest (sauf une histoire defavorable a l'epoque de son debut).

    Anthony a fait un travail de merveille...

    Je suis un expat qui travaille pour le tunnel...
    Je te confirme que je suis tres satisfait ,et ceci est un euphemisme ,du professionalisme,de la disponibilite et la gentillesse d'Anthony que je recommande dans tous les forums que je frequente dans la langue de Moliere ou de Shakespeare....
    J'ai aussi 2 paires chez Tony Gaziano qui lui aussi est tres sympa...
    Je vais finir chez Kilgour et en ce qui concerne le 140 ,je pense peut-etre changer pour du 120 avec du mohair ....

    Damn. Makes that Everest I picked up for US$100 seem like quite the deal even if all I salvage is the pants. [​IMG][​IMG]
