Bespoke Suit from a website - 9/9/2010 10:08:29 AM

I'm in need of a couple of new suits and was considering using one of the online bespoke suit websites. By the looks of things, you just send them your measurements, pick your material, and they'll send you a bespoke suit in the post. What might cost you 2,000 on Saville Row would cost a couple of hundred on one of these.

Has anyone actually done anything like this before?

I actually interviewed the CEO of a company that specialises in this. They won the Dell Start up Company award.

They're called A Suit That Fits.com. Give them a try.

I do something vaguely similar, although I can't afford new suits I do like myt suits to fit me

My answer go to a charity shop or vintage shop and find a suit that you like, but is WAY too big for you*

then take it to a local tailor or seamstress who will be able to cut it to fit like a glove.

Normally costs about 20-30 quid for the suit, and another 70-80 for the fitting so total cost of made to measure suit about 100

squids in

*Alternative option is to have a fat relative die and half-inch their suits (leave them one to be buried in though)

I like to make suits of my own from bits n bobs of various designers , when i can afford it that is. I think i look the dogs b*llocks and can mix n match it 4 or 5 different ways.
But Bespoke does look nice sometimes .

I chuckled when I saw it in big letter on hot topic. Tee hee. I'm 28 years old.

Went for my fitting/design session on Monday in Leeds with the tailor from ASTF. Really good experience, and my 3-piece jobby is now on order and I should be ready for my second fitting in 6 weeks or so.

Can't wait!

No sign of any sluts though.

Suit arrived today. I'm absolutely blown-away - it fits like a glove and is so much better than I was expecting. No need even for the second fitting.

As someone who hasn't ever felt completely comfortable wearing a suit, I can see myself wearing this most days for work. Went for the 3-piece option so could probably play around with a few different combinations.

So - www.asuitthatfits.com comes highly recommended. Cheers Timon!
