Anyone see today's Thrilllist and know anything about this company? Quality, value etc?
http://www.thrillist.com/links/207336

Here is text from the email.


Buying in bulk can land you incredible deals, but ten pound bags of M&Ms and Taquitos generally ensure the most incredible bulk ends up being you. For a bulk purchase that'll actually make you look better, hit Wholesale Custom Clothiers.

Operating out of a small office on the 39th Floor of the JP Morgan building, and helmed by a couple of guys in the manufacturing & distribution biz who previously specialized in selling direct to US & European boutique custom clothiers, WCC cuts handmade suits from the same top quality materials as their competitors and sells them at upwards of 50% off, with savings growing as you buy in greater volume, so like a BJ's that'll have you looking so fresh you'll actually get some. Avail by appointment only, you'll start by picking from a collection of luxe fabrics sourced from Europe to the Far East, including high-end fashion names like Loro Piana, Zegna, and Vitale Barberis Canonico, though you'll just call it "Vitale" after realizing your suit fits totally awesome, baby! Thereafter, total customization comes at no extra charge, with options ("more than 10 times" the number of typical competitors) including minute stitching deets such as an I vs D tack on the chest pocket; slanted or straight button holes; and interior pockets ranging from a large zippered joint to interior slots for pens/MP3 players, thankfully the only way they'll help you lead a zoot suit riot.

Hey,

A friend of mine getting married has been up to their office/showroom recently and told me that Wholesale Customer Clothiers are the same guys that operates traveling suit salesman called Enzo Sartori. Apparently Enzo's suits are much more costly, but it uses the same fabric swatches and everything when compared to Wholesale custom Clothiers. I follow Thrillist quite often and I think Enzo had an editorial by them too..

I dunno if that helps.. Maybe they are the same company and they just want to sell more suits at a lower price point?

If anyone can confirm this, please do share their experience.

Hello,

I am actually the manager of Enzo Sartori, and while WCC is a sister company, it is not the same product, nor do we use the same fabric swatches, apart from the brand name fabrics (Loro Piana, Vitale Barberis, Zegna etc.). The Enzo product has been upgraded and is now an entirely made in the USA (apart from fabrics), multiple fitting, bespoke product. The WCC product is a custom product (unique pattern for each client) made in China with a single fitting. The mission of Enzo Sartori is to bring the absolute finest quality garments to the market at a very reasonable and extremely competitive price, while the mission of WCC is to bring a very high quality custom product to the market at a price where a significant amount of the population can afford it. The quality of both companies products rivals that of what the vast majority of custom clothiers sell at twice the price. Please do not take my word for it, and feel free to ask one who has actually tried one of our garments produced within the last 6 months.
