    So that's not over the top? I don't necessarily wanna be called Gekko on my first day in the office.. but yeah.. imho it looks great together with a nice suit, shirt and tie.
    Was being facetious. Maybe if/when you hit VP

    Haha, I knew this answer would come. No I'm not really kidding. But never mind, I think I get the point. Thanks for clarifying Haz313. Way to recognize irony

    Update on the Sartoriani suits (the ones I got the deal on).

    They were late on the order, so they refunded me the £250 I paid in express delivery, which is fine but a bit annoying.

    Got my second fitting on saturday. Will hit you guys back with how the suits fit/feels hot off the press, and how many further alterations need to be made.

    Realised that my new job will not be a suit and tie affair - more business casual. Any recommendations on places with good quality smart trousers? What would one wear on top in the winter in the office - is a cardigan too casual? Best to stick with a jumper? Suggestions for places with good quality ones would be appreciated

    What kind of deal did you get on it? Also, bespoke or m2m?

    Presumably the deal was their annual "any suit for £500" sale, as advertised in the national dailies?

    Do keep us up to date.

    IIRC, Santorini don't do bespoke, just M2M, though they call it bespoke.

    Ted Baker/Paul Smith/Massimo Dutti are all on the slimmer end of the spectrum.. I rate Dutti suits quite highly as well, good quality - nice fitting for usually under £350-400

    Sartoriani are the biggest joke in the suiting world; it iterates me so much when people say they do bespoke (they were sued prior by the Saville Row Association). Their suits are made by a machine; on a block altered to a customer’s specifications. This is made-to-measure at best (I say this very loosely as its not even true MTM to be honest) :rolleyes:

    For those looking for suits, a word of advice, stay away from Sartoriani - they are basically just hacks, who charge ridiculous amounts by claiming their suits are;
    - Bespoke or MTM (certainly not the former and a very loose/weak definition of the latter, especially for the prices they charge)
    - That they are Saville Row (they have an office at 10 Saville Row, but they rent a disused ex-storage basement at the location, whereas there real office is on Bond Street/Canary Wharf and they have nothing to do with the Saville Row Association).

    It honestly is sad when you see someone fall for there marketing gimmicks b/c they perhaps are new to the suiting world (I hope the original poster at least questioned them about their techniques before signing onto them), as you can simply get MUCH BETTER suits for the amounts these guys charge.
