Perception of quality versus price

Jun 09 2011

Purchasing a made to measure suit is a matter of trust between you and the tailor. Selecting a fabric above the basic starting price is literally buying into a blind article.
You can of course compare the prices with other tailors if you choose branded merchants cloth such as Holland & Sherry or Dormeuil etc. Read More

Why be embarrassed by a suit salesperson

Jun 09 2011

I have many conversations with customers who through no fault of their own are the wrong shape to fit into stock size garments. When the salesperson says that they don’t have the sizes available, the customer either ends up with something that clearly doesn’t fit or leaves the store with feelings of humiliation and lack of self-esteem.

A free Corby trouser press

Jan 07 2011

Many customers ask me about how to look after their new made to measure suit and I always suggest that they should invest in a trouser press to retain a sharp crease in their trousers. It is in my interest to make sure that every garment will last as long as possible and therefore represent better value for money.
I regard each tailored suit, jacket trouser or even a made to measure shirt as an investment by the customer and to look after the investment I am for a short period giving away a free Corby trouser press with each made to measure suit.
If this sounds to good to be true just email me via the contact form on the website and I will call or email you personally.
