What do you guys think of this deal? For full-canvas it sounds pretty good. Anyone have experience with them? I'm either going this route or WW Chan next.



Custom suiting and shirting can be a daunting process. Sometimes you need to take a minute to sit down and think over your options without being strangled by a tape measure. Then, perhaps, while mulling things over, you’ll sip a tumbler of whiskey, shoot some pool, order some chicken tenders and catch the second half of whatever’s on...

It’s all part of the process at Windsor Custom—the subterranean clubhouse of handsomeness hidden beneath Chelsea’s mega-gastropub the Ainsworth. A process that will result in this Perk:

A full-canvas construction custom suit (a gratis upgrade from the standard halfer).
A gratis custom shirt to go along with your new custom suit. (Both the suit and shirt are made in America.)
A one-hour fitting session where you’ll sit down with Windsor Custom’s director (a Ralph Lauren alum) to hammer out all of the details—you’ll choose fabrics and everything from cuff type to lapel width—while enjoying full use of the clubhouse’s amenities and drinks, and food from upstairs (including sliders and those chicken tenders). Oh, and you’ll probably catch some college hoops in the process...

If you're inferring that I'm on their payroll, I am not :) I couldn't find a single review on the place anywhere.

I should have added in my original post - the price is $1,300 on urbandaddy.

This is probably a good indication that you may want to stay away. However, if you feel adventurous, make at least sure you see some of their work product before you commission.

For what it's worth, I went for a Groupon deal on custom shirts (from a different outfit), and even at 2 for $100 it was a crappy deal in the end. My shirts don't fit very well, and the fabric feels like polyester. Not saying that this is what you'll experience, but $1400 is a lot to gamble on an unknown product.
