wouldn't bother with mtm online as you're missing out on picking the fabric in person, showing the exact cut you want, and i suppose more importantly your measurements alone won't guarantee the best fit, function or comfort wise.

either get it done in person or have a tailor fix a shirt off the hanger i say.

Cheers, will probably order a nice yin from Suit Supply or similar and get it altered then.

Places to buy a suit in London for the XS size Fuker?

Tried Suitsupply but nothing, TopMan was ok for sizing but not feeling it. Looking to spend around 300.

@TheConductor same here, went into suit and supply for the xs 34 chest was still a touch big - might go with the made to measure which starts at 399. Anyone got any other suggestions please?

Current opinion on Suitsupply?

Need a new suit for day to day wear at work. Went Boggi last time, but not impressed with the quality and finish.
Might give a go to Suitsupply if it's good. Anyone can compare the two?

I use Master Tailor on Rose St in Edinburgh for alterations, although I haven't had sleeves shortened. Ede & Ravenscroft use Tailors Ltd on Thistle St for their alterations so it's maybe worth trying them too.

could do with getting round to buying a tux, got 3 black tie events before the end of the year.

where should i be looking? want to spend around 300 and looked at jcrews ludlow (have broad shoulders slim waist) but looks way out of my price range.

It wasn't a reply to you, apologies if it seemed disinterested. Honestly, if you're based abroad and there's a Suitsupply store near you then I'd go for it. I've heard differing opinions on their quality but they've definitely got a great selection.

Anyone ever ordered a suit from the German or Dutch Suit Supply sites? It seems the prices are a straight conversion from £ to €, so the same suit is either £259 or about £190, is it possible to order from the DE/NL site and get delivered to the UK and save the difference?
