Anyone used Tom James made to measure? They called me and I am not sure if they are worth spending my time and money. Thoughts?

I bought a suit from them a few years ago. The suits are pretty nice, but your experience will depend a lot on your salesman. My first salesman messed up my measurements and order and (unrelated?) left the company so my suit had to be reordered and ended up taking forever to come in. As long as you get a good sales rep, you’ll prob have a great experience


Some people really value face-to-face interaction with a personal advisor, which both Tom James and J Hillburn provide. If you’d rather not spend time this way, but you’re frustrated with available off-the-rack fit and style, consider online made-to-measure services like Proper Cloth, Alton Lane, Indochino, etc.


I use Tom James for my nice and sport coats and suits. I have a great rep there so it's worth the cost given the attention to detail, custom fit, and personalized style/design I can get. When something hasn't worked to perfection, they've made it right for me.


If you’re considering Tom James, also take a look at J Hillburn, a newer company with a similar model. It’s also highly dependent on the quality of your individual advisor, so you will want to check references

Plenty of comparably priced made to measure options of higher quality. Did a trial run with one dress shirt. Fit was garbage.

I use Tom James but there selections and options for suits and jackets are much smaller than other places. Plus I feel they nickel and dime on cutting buttons and monograms. I really like Enzo custom. Cheaper and a lot more options. But I will say Tom James rep coming to your home is nice.

This is my third year living in New York! I think something that I wish I knew earlier was the size and ease of transportation from some areas.

I would personally recommend looking for living in boroughs like
- Brooklyn

Some areas in these boroughs are way lower in rent than Manhattan and could easily get you to your job with one train ride.

A commute may help you save thousands a year. This hopefully could get you paying your own mortgage instead of rent
