I thought I would treat myself to my first tailored suit last year, partly because of my slim build and my frustration in getting a great fit off the peg. I chose ASTF, the first time I have bought a tailored suit, based on a review in the Telegraph.
The service - you meet a 'tailor', mine was an ex-salesman (nice enough though) in a rented office. He measures you and helps you choose a suit. This bit was fairly good although the fact that they turn up with a suitcase of suits is a little odd.
The suit - You then wait many weeks for your suit to be made and get a text & email confirming it's arrived. The suit is sent to your home and you take it yourself to the fitting. Unfortunately for me this is where it went wrong.
The fit - aweful. The suit jacket was made way too small. I was re-measured and the original measurements were wrong. Photos were taken of me wearing the jacket to demonstrate to the senior manager that it didn't fit. An uncomfortable & impersonable experience. Several more weeks go by then the suit is re sent to your home.
Another poor fit! The same thing then happened again. I complained by email and a junior telesales person contacted me and didn't really know what to do. No one senior bothered to contact me. I currently have a poor fitting suit that I won't wear in public that cost me more than off the peg. Do not buy from them.
