This. I got my bespoke suit from them for my wedding and couldn't have been happier.

My only advice is, whether you go MTM or bespoke, be sure to leave yourself plenty of time, especially if the suit is going to be for your wedding!

Not strictly related but can anyone recommend any merino jumpers for work? Especially if they keep their shape.

got a new job and need some new smarter office things. it isn't suits everyday so need some light knits and a more relaxed blazer/work jacket/overshirt thing. any suggestions on where to look? the knits are sorted thanks to arket and the qlo but harder to find a jacket…been browsing the usual and not finding a lot. any ideas?

Unless it's not a traditional suit (e.g. you want Yohji, Rick Owens style) just get charcoal or dark navy. I think all black traditional suits look odd.

Black suits are more suited to more formal events, weddings (classic black tie) or formal evening. I always go navy (blues) or greys for business.

Unless your new job is a doorman, forget about black suits.

Navy, navy blue or charcoal for the corporate world.

Went into Thom Sweeney NYC at the weekend and the place was amazing. Thinking of going MTM. Is Bespoke worth the extra 2k? I struggle to see it tbh
