    Has anybody heard of this company before?

    From what I can see, they produce classic British drape suits and even morning coats! They do made-to-measure, and their prices even given the terrible dollar seem quite reasonable, at least compared to a new Canali.

    I am tempted to order a suit from them next time I have need of a new one and have some spare change.

    I've been there, not bought anything. It's like a 'Gent's' second hand shop with
    a lot of used Burberry trenchcoats and tweed Sportscoats and shoes and some more vintage/antique gear- and a Tailor's shop. I thought there used stuff was way too dear but then they are in the expensive area of London. It's kind of a strange place, surprised they have a website.
    Theres another one like this further down, almost at Putney Bridge which also has used clothing /Tailor shop and a few doors down another shop called
    'Old Hat', who sell vintage Gent's gear Country styles and hats of course.
    It would be interesting to see some of his work... I might be back in London later this summer, have a look...

    Interesting. What interests me is that their new things have a very vintage flavor. I am a big fan of English cut suits and their prices also seem quite reasonable, so if it turns out to be a good establishment it would be a very good find for me.

    What I think I like about this shop (only going by what I can see on their page) is that they know their vintage wears as well as their modern. In some cases they are replicating clothes and fabrics from the past. I'd like to check out the shop some time to see how good their wears look in person.

    If nobody else can, I'll probably take a pic or 2 when I'm there in July.
    I'll definitely be down that way- I have a favourite trail from Notting Hill, down, and across through Chelsea and Fulham and across to South London- can't forget 'Old Hat' at the north side of Putney Bridge-
    I miss Londres... :cry:
