Different 'grades' of bespoke?

Well, you have to give them credit for extremely well made and aggressive marketing. I don't think you can exploit the terms "bespoke" and "Savile Row" any further for MTM.
All you get from the full bespoke firms on the Row is lamenting about it. But it's hard to "fight" a MTM (or RTW) company that has such a great marketing budget.

Lastly, the garment can be fine tuned style wise on the customer at the fittings through custom. Whereas, some of those parts are finished on rtw and m2m, so that sort of fitting is impossible.

Has anyone out there tried either of these companies before? I must add a disclaimer, I got a pair of RTW cord trousers from barrington ayre, and I'm very happy with them. I plan to buy from him again.

I have no experience with either of these two tailors, but I understand from other fora that John DeBoise (Edwin DeBoise's brother) cuts for Cad and the Dandy. I believe they reduce costs by outsourcing some of the sewing overseas.
