A bespoke suit was always one of my "bucket list" things to do, so I took the plunge and chose K&A after some extensive research. I wanted a tweed suit but didn't want to end up looking like a refugee from the local duck hunt!
Luckily I was guided by Karl from the Wilmslow branch who gave me some good advice and had a very good idea of what I wanted. I enjoyed the whole process and took up far more than my allotted time at the initial appointment.
Unfortunately the fabric I chose had just been discontinued which necessitated another visit a few weeks later.
Due to this unforeseen error I was allowed to choose a more expensive tweed and K&A would not charge me extra for this. Result!
When I finally picked the suit up I was absolutely stunned by how good it looked and how well it fitted.
I went home and immediately chucked out all the crappy off the peg rubbish I could find in my wardrobe.
Needless to say I am a convert and am saving up my next visit.
I did encounter a few niggles-the overall time from first appointment to completion took months,and I did find it difficult to get to appointments (a combination of both me and my wife working shifts,the distance from home to Wilmslow and childcare issues), but overall I am very happy. Well worth the wait
