Suit issue.

You can't wear a Kilgour, RJ or a Gieves suit to work on a daily basis.

I win.

Watch issue.

But says Christopher Ward, its a mark but not a marque of distinction and renound precision.

Get away.

speaking of which, has anybody bought a suit from Kilgour in the past few years?

whats the block like, is it on the slim front?

Well decided to save the money and wait for a cash infusion i'm expecting later this year. Should at least double my budget. Took a look around Harrods and Selfridges, and tbh not much out there. The CW is nice, but I was thinking should I ever decide to sell on for any reason, then it maybe difficult to get rid of because its not a well recognised brand at the mo. Which is sad but true.

Thanks anyhow guys.

I bet Batman's belt does. Don't think they have those on the bay though.
