“Excellent service”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by jbielby (1 review written)

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The informed my decisions on aspects of my suit that I wasn't familiar or hadn't thought about and were very amenable to the changes that I requested. This is my first tailored suit and the service ensured that I was comfortable and at east throughout what could have been a fairly intimidating process. The quality of the suit seems very good to me, although I haven't worn it 'out' as yet. I also liked the fact that there wasn't a 'hard-sell' to… Read Full Review

“Great wedding suit”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by very_random_man (1 review written)

I was a bit apprehensive about tailors who outsource as there are plenty out there with awful reviews (and a few horror stories!) however I was reassured by the number of positive reviews for King and Allen and again by the professional attitude shown during the consultation. I was also a little apprehensive as I'd left it somewhat late to get a tailored suit before my wedding but I decided I'd take the plunge anyway! Given the time constraints I went for an express option which meant the… Read Full Review

“Great product great people ”

Written on: 13/08/2014

We found K&A after an internet search and after reviewing the online comments we made an appointment to be measured for our wedding suits. The service and the people were excellent and the details around our chosen design we carefully explained so we knew exactly what we were getting. A number of weeks later we had our second appointment to check the initial fit. A few alterations were required but was not an issue and we arrange final collection a number of weeks later. On getting the suits… Read Full Review

“Super Service”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by stuartgsmith (1 review written)

I certainly feel the serivce is great value for money. Since getting my first suit, which fits like a glove, i really wondered why i bothered going to a normal highstreet outlet only to pay more for it to be modified to fit me properly. I've been back to K&A for more, the choice of cloth and linings is great and when my schedule changes K&A are more than happy for my suit to be transfered to the closest location for a fitting. I treat the suits as an investment and they certainly stand and… Read Full Review

“Nice try, but...”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by MacMillan158 (1 review written)

I should say, the suit was excellently cut, and the material nice. The down side, was that I ended up (for £900) with 2 'identical' trousers which were a quarter inch different in length, some stitching coming apart at the arm (very minor, but noticeable on first wear outside fitting room), and 2 weeks later, the stitching on jacket top button hole has come away. These could all be repaired, and I believe K&A would absolutely repair them for free (after all the suit is brand new!)… Read Full Review

“My bespoke dream”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by richardeastwood (1 review written)

My vision was to have a suit made to my very particular design and that is exactly what I got! From start to finish the whole experience was wonderful. I was anxious that I might not get exactly what I wanted but with the support, encouragement and professional advice of the staff I need not have worried. Everything I wanted was achieved , the suit fits perfectly is extremely comfortable and makes me feel a million dollars. I loved the amount of choices available to me from the suit fabric to… Read Full Review

“My first taste of bespoke suits”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by DaveDowning (1 review written)

Having wore off the peg suits for years I had always fancied a nice tailor made suit but was concerned with spending the money on a suit that once complete I may not be happy with (I am fussy. And wasn't sure if it would be a very 'pretentious' process. I bit the bullet and arranged an appointment with a view to buying a half canvass suit (opting for the mid range). I couldn't have been welcomed more, the staff that greeted me couldn't have been more helpful and genuine walking me through the… Read Full Review

“My tweed suit ”

Written on: 27/06/2014 by Lesliemb492 (1 review written)

This was my first ever tailor made suit and the staff at Amersham were brilliant. I didn't realise the different finishes/lapels/linings and stitching that went in to personalise my suit. The experience was quite exciting and then I got the email to say the suit was ready and went for a 2nd fitting where a few alterations were made and two weeks later my suit was ready. The material is light and the suit fits like a glove! Overall a very enjoyable experience… Read Full Review

“superbly fitting suit”

Written on: 29/05/2014 by ColeDemetriades (1 review written)

Thanks once again to the team for a beautifully fitting suit, even better than last time! I particularly love the fit of the jacket, especially as I have always thought I had funny shoulders and struggled to fit an off the peg jacket properly. Really happy with the end result - can't wait for my next one!… Read Full Review

“Great service, great people, very good value”

Written on: 06/05/2014 by pjHooper131 (1 review written)

I got my wedding suit from King & Allen in Wilmslow, as well as a fitted shirt. I also had a final fitting at the Surbiton store. They were an extremely professional, well organised, friendly, and responsive team, and helped me sort out the perfect suit and fitted shirt. They are extremely competitive on price for bespoke tailoring, and the quality, fit and service justify paying more than for an off the peg suit/shirt. The only problem now is that I am not sure I can go back to off the peg… Read Full Review

“Not off the peg, in all aspects”

Written on: 09/04/2014 by Pjestico (1 review written)

What an amazing experience! From the initial consultation, explanation of styles and fabrics, the fittings and then leaving with the most beautifully tailored suit that is unique to me. The service at the Wilmslow store was exceptional, one member of the team in particular provides attention to detail and customer care that is exemplary, a credit to the company. The completed suit has a high level of workmanship and I'm sure this will be the first of many more. What a great 40th birthday… Read Full Review

“Bespoke business suits”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by KT5Customer (1 review written)

Having seen King & Allen's business premises while out walking in Surbiton, I decided to try their service as an alternative to my normal practice of buying business suits off-the-peg, or occasionally bespoke, from reputable, well-known and traditional London (including Savile Row) tailors. Having called in without an appointment, I was warmly received, allocated an adviser within a few moments and then guided expertly and professionally through a cloth and style-selection process. Although I… Read Full Review

“Good fit, poor durability at the seams”

Written on: 19/03/2014 by Sky_Bum (1 review written)

Summary: good fit, but 500GBP came undone at the seam after 40 times wearing it. Poor customer service as bookings to fix it were not available. PROS - I spent 500GBP on a suit from K&A a little over a year ago. Although I needed multiple fittings (I had lost after ordering the suit), I ended up with a nice and fairly decent fitting. The selection of the material is of good quality, though I am unable to judge the value of it. They did not have non-plain jacket linings, but most people aren't… Read Full Review

Dear Sir

Thank you for your review, both the positive and the negative. I am very pleased you like your suit and that it was a good fit. You may also be interested to know we do now offer patterned linings.

I would also like to address the negative comments you make. I believe you phoned up about two weeks ago to make an enquiry about having your trousers repaired. When you described the problem with your trousers to my colleague you were told, as is our policy, that you may have to pay for the repair. This is because we can't assess the cause of the issue over the phone and very occasionally and in a few limited circumstances we would charge for the repair at cost. This could either be because the issue is down to normal wear and tear, consistent with a years use, or that it was apparent some incident had occurred such as a tear caused by catching the trousers on something. In all likelihood we would take a practical view and complete the repair free of charge. We aim to provide a great service to all our customers and I think in this case it was just that our policy was not explained to you clearly, or in enough detail. I would welcome the opportunity to rectify this issue and invite you to call up again to make an appointment.

As for the lack of availability of appointments I can assure you that you would have been offered the same times as anyone else. I believe you wanted an evening appointment at Liverpool Street and you wanted one that week. I am afraid that whilst we do open late on two nights of the week, Wednesday and Thursday, these are our most popular slots and they were already booked that week, I am sure if you wanted something in the day that week or even in the evening the following week we could have accommodated you. Again I invite you to call back and try again and please do ask for me as I would be very pleased to assist you further.

Kind regards

Jake Allen

“Back for More”

Written on: 19/02/2014

I visited the Wilmslow branch before Christmas to try King & Allen out. I'd not gone down the bespoke/semi-bespoke route before. I hardly have to wear suits as I work from home mostly these days. However, I do need to look smart occasionally when I visit suppliers, clients or exhibitions etc and being 6ft 3, 17 stone, big chest and shoulders etc I normally have to compromise on the fit of suits. I was fitted for a jacket only as this is more flexible for my current requirements and allowed… Read Full Review

A friend recommended King & Allen in Surbiton as a reputed tailor, luckily i live in the town so thought i would try them out. Well i am very glad i did. i had 4 fittings in all, and on each occasion i was dealt with in a friendly, knowledgeable and at all times professional manner. The jacket looks superb and just what i wanted. it wasn't a cheap purchase and i didn't intend it to be, this was always about quality. i would highly recommend the tailors if your looking for a product which you… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Service”

Written on: 10/01/2014 by darrenschuttler (1 review written)

From the first appointment until the final fitting - I was very impressed with the service and professional approach of the staff at King&Allen. One person in particular was brilliant. Each appointment did not take long at all and measurements were done perfectly the first time. When it came for the first fitting the suit was perfect. I am very satisfied with the quality of materials chosen and the suit is made to a very high standard. I have previously bought suits when on business in… Read Full Review
