Depends what youre using it for.

If its for the rare special occasion its worth having one made from scratch which aint cheap. Not for every day use though

I have had reason to buy the odd quality suit over the years, not gone bespoke but bought a quality suit at a proper tailors and had it altered inhouse by their staff.

I have had about three in this way and all were very good investments compared to my everyday work suits. I would recommend Slaters in Swansea I bought a Aquescutum suit there and it is very nice quality and looks bespoke to most people.

Life is an adventure or nothing at all.

I bought an Yves saint laurent suit when I needed to wear a suit for work. It was a true thing of beauty. Unfortunately my expanding waistline now prevents me from wearing it.

Best I ve seen is in Hong Kong.

Those guys will literally measure you up straight off the street and knock out a perfectly fitting Armani copy in 2 hours flat...and a fraction of the cost of the original.

Wife worked for slathers before retiring.

They have excellent value for money gear that can be altered on site free of charge.

The alterations staff are often time served .

If you re in business , a bespoke suit might be worth it.


My missus, as was Lorraine , were top class ,highly skilled tailors

It's such a shame that fantastic trades like tailors, cobblers and the like seem to be disappearing.

Or am I wrong?

It is .

Sadly more evidence of cheap Far East labour killing our traditions and skills.

Suits of the highest quality are still made here but for mass market we cannot compete.

When you think about it, we are to blame as we want the best but not prepared to pay for it.

Head down to London, Perch. If I were you I'd try Welsh & Jeffries or Norton and Sons in W1. Proper suits made to measure, don't waste your time or money on off-the-peg tat.

An idea isn't responsible for those who believe in it.
