Vandrell,

Originally I wanted a suit shown on the website under the special order suit which was very similar, however the material was discontinued. However because the suit was still up on the site they provided an alternative which looked very similar.

They also provided me an offer which they called "The whole 9 yards" which gave me a three piece suit, shirt (not shown), tie (also not shown) pocket square and Albert Thurston braces for £900.

I was very fortunate in getting this material, I know it would normally of cost me a lot more, but I don't know how much.

Re: Anthony Sinclair Special Order Suit

Hi guys, hi Matt,

So, I have been David's customer since at the very least early January 2016, and progresses had made that I have two Special Order Handmade suits by today (third coming in pretty soon by now). The first suit, received this time last year, was made of H Lesser's 16oz worsted, a beautiful navy blue herringbone (29632), now discontinued. Immediately after I received the first suit, I placed another order, a three piece, and thought I would use the same fabric, but unfortunately, the fabric was out right before I could act. Thus, the replacement was the much beefier, thicker, stronger Harrison P&B Universal 16oz, in midnight blue narrow herringbone. They are both lovely, although I hated the fact that Harrison was willing to discontinue their 29632 fabric, which I could have had an additional waistcoat for my first suit (I have instead had one made in the Golden Bale fabric).

Long story short, here they are, as my contribution to the thread per Matt's suggestion.

The P&B Universal, when I first popped it on.

https://s8.postimg.cc/9d2i9y0sx/IMG_0328.jpg

P&B Universal, again, but this time at a local artist's studio, where I was helping out. It was stunning.

The fit of the P&B Universal in a two piece config. Usually preserved for when the weather is a little too warm out, and I had to actively run around.

My H Lesser 16oz, when I first had it. For some reason, the color was much deeper and darker when I first had the suit

The back of the jacket, with the drape and ease. It was beautifully shaped.

https://s8.postimg.cc/cxydst2o1/DSC0003.jpg

This is just to showcase the suit on its own. Although not bespoke, it was a beauty in its own right.

https://s8.postimg.cc/r4e4o2vjl/16108001_1228579687231632_1139405290_o.jpg

The trousers of the H Lesser. For a while, I was able to wear the trousers without having to rely on braces.


All of the stylistic details are so far similar and indifferent for both of these suits. They are both basic single breasted, with ticket pocket, because I have way too many gimmicks to put on daily. The trousers are stylisticaly the same - double pleated, side adjuster, full cut, 2 inches cuffs, high rise - though the P&B suit trousers were slightly lowered with the rise, and somewhat cleaner in terms of fit. Additionally, there is a waistcoat to accompany the P&B suit, in simple single breasted config and two welted pockets. I originally planned to have a lapel on the waistcoat, but discarded it. Besides, the waistcoat fitted so well and beautiful that, anymore gimmicks such as a lapel, would distract the otherwise very beautifully fitted waistcoat. I would have not been able to pull through winter without the waistcoat. Both suits were cut with Connery's suit in mind, so the waist is shaped, but not close fitted. Additionally, the chest is also draped. All future orders from this point forward will be three piece suits.

For the value that I paid for these suits, they are more than worth it. They are handmade, with hand sewn buttonholes, edge finishes, and with hand sewn sleeves. They look fabulous, and they feel fantastic to put on. What makes it even more special, more personal and privileged, was that David flew all the way to Seattle to visit and fitted the suit on me. He was the first British tailor that I knew of who visited this otherwise sartorially deprived city. Everybody was enamored with my suit. I was, and am proud, to say that I am David's client.

Upcoming suits include a nice milled finish Escorial, a Fresco suit, and I have two lengths of Escorial wool in the ready. Stay tuned!

Re: Anthony Sinclair Special Order Suit

Fantastic suits, tkca17. Thank you for sharing your experiences with them.

Re: Anthony Sinclair Special Order Suit

Thanks a lot, Matt and p99.

I just wish we have more Anthony Sinclair clients sharing their suits, special order or bespoke, on the forum. I understand, though, that many whom David worked with are actually high profile clients, from my many conversations with him.

Re: Anthony Sinclair Special Order Suit

I wanted to copy one of Sean Connery's casual outfits from You Only Live Twice, so I got a pink cocktail cuff Anthony Sinclair shirt and dark grey plain-weave frogmouth-pocket Anthony Sinclair trousers from Mason & Sons.

https://s17.postimg.cc/4n78wm4tb/anthony-sinclair-shirt-trousers.jpg

The two items are not exact replicas, but they are made-to-order and not bespoke. Quite a lot is possible with the Anthony Sinclair made-to-order shirts and trousers, and I'm very pleased with these pieces. Unfortunately the weather is now too cold in New York to be wearing the plain-weave trousers, but I can wear this shirt to work in a more formal setting, which I have been doing since I got it last month. The shirt is made in a more traditional fit that what is trendy today, but even though the trousers are very 1960s in style, frogmouth pockets really should have made a comeback because they follow everything that people ultimately want in their clothes today.

There are more photos and a more detailed description and review of the clothes on my blog:

Fantastic review Matt. Great to see the frogmouth pockets up close. I can really see how sporty they look, which works really well with increasing the casual notes of this outfit. I love this look and have an Orlebar Brown version of it now (only with blue instead of grey pants), but I will defiantly be getting those pants from M&S.

I've always wondered how this would work as a suit and if it was intended to be a suit. It would be very much in the literary Bond realm to wear sandals with a suit, though the colors are a bit wilder than the literary Bond; I think it would make a cool mix between the two Bond worlds. What do you think my man? Again, very insightful and informative review  ajb007/martini

Re: Anthony Sinclair Special Order Suit

So I received this yesterday, had been saving for a while and will be wearing the jacket and waistcoat to my wedding in August with a pair of grey striped morning trousers.

This is based on the black herringbone suit in SPECTRE.

The material is also black herringbone,  100's super 140's Worsted from  Holland & Sherry.

The jacket is a full canvas, with wide peak lapels, 5 button cuff, ticket pocket, but unlike the SPECTRE suit has a double vent.

The waistcoat, has 4 pockets and 6 buttons.

The trousers, have no cuffs, and side adjusters.

I'm very happy with this suit, it feels so soft like silk, probably be a while before I can get another one but really happy with this one!
