18 months ago £1=€1.5, now £1=€1.1 £2300 was €3450. However, €3450 now is £3140.I diod not quite use those words when hearing of the price of a standard Rubinacci bespoke garment.
I know it is highly regarded but the price was £2300 about 18 months back- and now we are in the middle of a recession! What is going on?
Actually, according to the Maurice Sedwell website, Maurice Sedwell's starting price for a bespoke suit (they only offer full bespoke with no semi bespoke and no ultimate bespoke, FWIW) is now £3.5 or £3.6K (unfortunately, I forget which one of these two prices it is but I know for a fact that it is one of these two prices), not £3K.18 months ago £1=€1.5, now £1=€1.1 £2300 was €3450. However, €3450 now is £3140.
Add the cost of inflation for cloth cost, seems a fair price.
In 2006 the starting price of a Maurice Sedwell bespoke suit was about £2.8k now it is £3k (December 2008 price).
Blame the pound not Rubinacci.
Just go to The Row, the only price increase is because of cloth inflation.
It is like the old saying goes, you learn something new everyday. Thank you, ToryBoy.A lot of the companies on Savile Row do not include vat because most of the business in outside of Britain.
I emailed Andrew last month and he quoted me £3k + vat (which is £3450). It should be £3525 but the vat rate dropped to 15% from 17.5%.
In 2006, Andrew would have been charging £2.8k + vat at 17.5%, £3290.
All of the full bespoke tailored clothing (not just the full bespoke suits) from Ramroop (and from all three branches of Rubinacci) is one of the best on the planet in terms of quality and craftsmanship (particularly the quality and craftsmanship of the following: hand sewing and handmade machine sewing).I thought Ramroop's suits are supposed to be very well put together; but one of his suits equals one Rubinacci jacket.
Are you really saying SR price hikes are down to cloth?? Where is this cost coming from? Sterling buying less wool? Australian drought having an effect on merino sheep?
Should not decreased inflation kick in somewhere? I know that the sterling situation is bad for buying foreign goods.
