    TM Lewin textured silk tie
    Ray Ban RX5162
    Loake 200 capped Goodyear welted oxfords
    Vintage briefcase

    I really like this look, everything fits together very well. Do you mind me asking where you got the suit?

    I've heard some very mixed reviews about a suit that fits. What is your overall opinion?

    I still don't own a suit of any kind; thankfully I haven't had the need for one, but I'm keen to put in the research for when the time does arrive, I don't want a cheap suit so I've narrowed down my options but I was intrigued by what they offer.

    I was concerned following some reviews too. So I spoke with the owner, David. He asked me to mystery shop the Glasgow tailor, Chris (They gave me a free gift for mystery shopping, incidentally). My impression of Chris was excellent and I liked the ethics of the business and what they are trying to achieve, so I waited for a good offer and ordered a suit (the offer was a free waistcoat with any two-piece order).

    I worked with Chris to design the suit. He was great, knew exactly what I wanted. He even searched high and low for the tan leather tortoise buttons. If they don't have exactly what you are after, they will try to find it elsewhere.

    After two fittings I had a great suit that fits beautifully. No complaints. I am constantly complimented on the suit. In fact, I'm thinking of ordering another.

    Suit looks great mate, and might check out that site in a bit more detail in future, in saying that the two suits I have had in the past are from Slaters, got to love shopping in there, staff are first class.

    Do they do tailoring in there? I'm looking for a decent tailor in Glasgow

    Yeah, Chris from asuitthatfits is in Glasgow monthly. It's worth going and having look at the fabrics and asking him a few questions. He's a nice chap, not a pushy salesperson.
