Fantastic to see you've had a suit made by Dragon Inside. I was convinced to buy one based on your interview on Mensflair and following that up by reading other reviews elsewhere - a grey flannel three-piece which should be with me before Christmas with a bit of luck and my first foray into MTM. Nice to note they appear to have done a good job with yours. I look forward to the full review!

Looks good! Great choice of cloth there.

As an aside, I work for Google here in London, and wondered if you might be interested in joining a Q&A panel session on menswear for employees. As you may have noticed, tech industry workers aren't always the smartest of dressers, and I thought it might be interesting to challenge that a bit, and see if we can inspire some people to take a bit more pride in their appearance.

It would likely take place some time next year, perhaps late January or February.

How much do they charge for a three piece, and what sort of wool is that (is it a lightweight from Minnis or somewhere similar?)

Paul,

Hope your Dragon Inside suit is with you and doing well. Would be interested to get your views.

John,

I would love to take part in a Q&A session for you. Sounds like enormous fun.

Anon,

Depends on cloth. This is an Alfred Brown, which is perfectly serviceable but is from the lower end of English wool cloths. This suit cost £330.
