Bespoke & MTM Suits, Sport Jackets & Shirts
Bob at iTailor and I go back a long way! He was one of the first advertisers on AskAndy and I met him on a trip to Thailand.
iTailor is a professional state-of-the art tailoring factory, offering direct factory prices to their customers. They have been in the tailoring business for four decades and are proud to be able to offer the best prices available on the internet.
They provide custom suits, sport jackets, trousers, jeans and even shoes!
MyTailor.com is operated by the Hemrajani family with a tailoring facility in Hong Kong, but they have a headquarters in the USA (Irvine, California) and a extensive travel schedule so you can meet them near your home.
The website mytailor.com is wonderful where you browse, learn more about tailoring, schedule a fitting, and even place orders. How convenient is that?
Oxxford Clothes, a legend in suit making, was founded in Chicago in 1916, and is the only manufacturer in America that tailors custom garments by hand.
I had the pleasure (and it was a pleasure) to get an Oxxford made-to-measure suit, which is as near to bespoke as possible.
I was measured in Beverly Hills during one of their trunk shows and when we had an AskAndy event in Chicago later in the year the high point of which was a tour of the Oxxford factory, they had my suit ready for the second fitting by non-other than the renowned Rocco!
They are carried by several high end men’s clothing stores (check their website for locations).
Highest quality craftsmanship and fabrics and their tailors travel to you for the perfect measurements.

Exceptional British Shoes. In my estimation one of the highest quality shoe makers.
Each pair of Edward Greens is made in their Northampton, UK workshop, cut by hand from the world’s finest leathers. Crafted and honed with unerring attention to detail Edward Green shoes exemplify the elegance of quintessentially English style.
They offer ready-to-wear as well as custom made (bespoke) footwear.
