Good shout, these Paul Smiths would look great with a navy suit IMO.

Brown double monks a good shout or burgandy oxfords. Suede loafers dark brown also works and is bit more "wedding".

Just ordered massimo dutti made to measure. Really impressed by the guy who measured up and sorted it all. Materials seem decent. £395 for two piece or £450 in loro piana fabrics. Will post up when it comes in. Seems a better deal than mid range suit supply or similar.

Asked before but anyone know of high street/cheapish trousers with adjusters rather than belt loops?

Bought one of the AR Nick Hart one. Quality was ok, not as good as suit supply which is in similar price range. Fit was odd, the button positioning on the single button ones was really low so sent it back.

Does anyone know of a decent tailor in Newcastle/north east who could do alterations to a suit?

Long shot but does anybody know of any high street brands that do work trousers with quite a vicious taper or even just decent slim fit ones? Thanks!

I keep saying it, but h&m and gap both do well decent jeans and trousers if you dont want to part company with decent amounts of dough, and all with a decent slim fit on them as they do a decent selection of every cut.

Also a million cheap options on Yoox - lots of Italian brands for cheap tailored stuff - Tonello, Boglioli, Corneliani, Incotex, etc.

Caught my trouser on some metal and ripped it this morning, all the fabric is still there though. Will any decent tailor be able to get it looking good?

Suit is from SuitSupply, I couldn't really see if they offered a repair service?

Considering they do alterations etc i'm sure they will fix that for you.
