Some good fabrics, the almost standard silky looking linings look a bit cheaper close up but fine from a distance.
Matching pocket squares are a nice touch, the new MP3 tunnels are a great idea to achieve a better fit when carrying gadgets.
Have been pleased with the shirts too - a few more inner collar and cuff patterns would be good.
Would, and have, recommended to friends.
You get what you pay for with these guys - it's better than off the rack, but no way is it the same as getting a properly tailored suit.
I ordered a suit 6 months in advance of my wedding (this weekend). The suit was shipped in 6 weeks: it looked fine, apart from an issue with the shoulders. 4 months, 7 fittings and 1 remade jacket later, and the shoulders still look funny.
I've had to take the suit (like I say, I'm getting married this weekend), but am pretty gutted that they weren't able to sort this out - I've paid £600 for a suit that (kind of) fits. It feels like they either don't have the expertise or the systems to deal with anything beyond the simplest alteration.
UPDATE: The reply below from ASTF is a PR exercise - I've emailed this address and had no response.

Bought 3 suits for work plus an extra pair of trousers and a few shirts since 2010 and I can't fault the attention to detail, the professionalism and passion of the style advisors (Minsy & Shivali)...thanks. Also when compared with off the peg suits...you might pay a little more to wear the suit you want...but it will last a lot longer...so great value for money. Mine are still wearing well almost 2 years in!
I bought my last made-to-measure suit in 1979. To say that 'I am not driven by fashion' would be a ridiculous under-statement, but after years of buying off-the-peg suits, none of which actually fitted, I decided to give A Suit That Fits a try. I have not been disappointed.
I will apologise right now to my Suit That Fits stylist Amarieze - I had no idea what I wanted, or even what I should be asking for, but he was the consummate professional and patiently talked my through the options and offered excellent advice throughout the whole process. The result? A suit that actually does fit!
Please accept my thanks for making the whole process both painless and successful.
I have bought 7 suits over the last 4 years from asuitthatfits.
Service is great and has improved as the company has expanded across the UK, with more fabrics and details to choose from, so will continue to shop with them.
I've ordered a number of suits from ASuitThatFits and have always got exceptional customer service. In this case, the fitting was for my wedding suit as well as for my best men's suits. All our fitting appointments were with Amarieze Goyea in the West End office and he has been a delight to work with since the very first appointment at the end of 2011. He always gave us insightful advice regarding the design/style and I now have a great 3-piece suit for my wedding that fits perfectly! Thanks to Amarieze and the rest of the team!
I contacted about ASFT to have a 1930s style waistcoat made.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tailoring experience with ASTF. In particular I was most impressed by the service I received from your Birmingham tailors. The waistcoat is excellent and the fit is first class. I've received numerous compliments about the garment too. I will be back!
I went to a Suit that Fits for a shirt that i would wear on my wedding day. The service from start to finish was amazing, starting with a warm welcome and a cup of tea (it was a cold, wet day in London) before we began to talk about what i wanted. Brett (their Senior Style Advisor) made me feel very comfortable and his advice was top class. A great example of customer service. I look forward to going back there for my next suit.
Amarieze, the member of staff, was polite and helpful. My shirts were properly tailored to my measurements, made from good quality cloth, with double stitching. The price was competitive. Overall, highly recommended.
I have used A Suit That Fits to create my wedding suit. They have been brilliant from the start and have made a perfect suit for me. They were fantastic when introducing all the different materials, styles, etc... that they have and gave me very useful advice; they made sure that the suit fits me perfectly and have modified it twice, for free, because they were not happy with the way it looked (I thought it was fine, but when it came back, it was so much better indeed!).
I have never liked wearing a suit because I have never found one that fitted me, but I love my wedding suit and will definitely buy some more from them. Thank you very much to all of you, and especially Jonathan!
I have used ASTF for the last three years and now have six bespoke suits and three shirts all of which are great quality and a superb fit - I've never had so many unprompted compliments. I had never bought bespoke before but wouldn't go back to buying similarly priced off the peg suits that don't really fit.
Once they have your measurements you can simply design your suits online or do it wit the advice of your personal style advisor. They all know what they are talking about when it comes to different styles, colour matches etc and this make the process fun and enjoyable.
In the past I've arranged for ASTF to come into our offices on two occasions and everyone that bought (more than 20 people) were all very happy customers.
I'd definitely recommend these guys to anyone wanting a new suit and will be buying my wedding suit from them in the near future!!!
Superb service & exceptional quality garments; the tailored shirt looks & feels amazing & I looked & felt the business at my wedding in my suit & shirt. Excellent advice & a vast choice of quality styles & fabric combinations, coupled with folk that have a great knowledge & love of their business made for a very pleasurable experience. I will certainly be back for more garments in the future.
I had a jacket made by A Suit That Fits at their Reading office. Extremely impressed with the product quality. Was also very impressed by the way their excellent personal service was complemented by their use of technology (email, text etc). Will definitely use them again and recommend to others.

An excellent suit, very well made, and thanks to the attention to detail and high standards of the tailor, a number of adjustments were made to achieve the perfect fit. Although a little more expensive than what I tended to pay for an off the peg suit, I can clearly see why it is the superior choice to go bespoke and I don't think I'll go back. I'd happily recommend this service to friends and colleagues.
I had been thinking about getting a tailored suit now for some time so when Nick from A Suit That Fits did a site visit to the company where I work I booked a consultation and went along. After spending some time going through options and all the measurements the order was complete and it was just a case of waiting for delivery and final fit.
The suit was completed quite quickly (2 weeks into an 8 week delivery estimate) and I turned up to the local Reading office to collect.
The suit is very, very good quality and the fit is superb. Nick and Angelo who handled my order were very personable and professional. I thoroughly recommend A Suit That Fits.
My fitting with David from A Suit That Fits in Bristol was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish (as have been all my other dealings with A Suit That Fits). He was never anything but friendly and was happy to offer guidance when it was needed for a novice such as myself.
(Plus his taste in music is bloody good and he makes a damn fine cup of tea.)
In 2010, I spent some time in London. After I got measured I ordered my first suit at A Suit That Fits. I really like the suit because the facbric feels very good and they really fit perfectly.
Being back in Germany I ordered a second and a third suit online. What can I say? It is so easy and uncomplicted! I just take my profile from the homepage and amend the style of the previous suit in the way I want. The suit will be delivered in a box within a couple of weeks. The delivery service to Germany is excellent. Both suits I ordered online are really brilliant. The quality is smashing and they fit perfectly. From my perspective, the suits are much much better than any high-brand suits off the shelf!
I will definitely order more suits online in the future at asuitthatfits!
Amazing service, attention to detail....very experienced style advisors. Loved my suit and cashmere coat.
Will definitely gonna go there again.
People who are looking for a good suit tailored....should definitely go to one of their studio.
This is my second suit and the service could not be better. I went to the consultation with firm ideas. The stylist was able to show me wher the ideas were good and those not so good. We agreed on design that met my requirements but was also stylish! Additional desires that are not available on the web site were incorporated. I now have the suit and it is more than I expected. Very snappy
Thank you to the whole team from the stylist to the taylor.
Great suit, excellent experience.
One thing though, i have 2 £50 vouchers which expire in 3 months. They really serve no purpose because i ordered a second suit immediately after i picked up the first in order to take advantage of the 15% discount if i did just that. That was a better deal than the £50 off one. So i thought i'd use the voucher to get some cuflinks from you. obviously there was smallprint saying i couldn't do that. Bit of a sneaky ploy, seems like a good offer but serves no purpose in reality.
Anyone want a £50 discount voucher? I have 2 spare...
This company is a delight. It's pretty much exactly what it should be. It has passionate tailors and any fabric you want. If you enjoy bespoke tailoring this is the best option I've seen in years. I'm a customer several times over now.
I found these guys when they visited my offices at IBM a few years ago. I had my wedding suit made by them, which was simply perfect and have now had several suits created since.
They make them uniquento you, provide the right level of advice and ensure that you are happy and correct anything that might need adjusting after.
Try them once and you will keep going back!
I have my wedding coming up this April and wanted to get a customised suit for the occasion, having seen the Birmingham brach manager Jonathan at my work place, it was only right to let A suit That Fits look after me! Jonathan was extremely helpful and very professional, he helped me choose the perfect suit and had many ideas to share with me. Icing on the cake was the personalised label in my jacket which has mine and my partners name with our wedding date. Thank you very much Jon for all your help and I cannot wait to tell more people about your service!
We first came across ASTF when looking for something in the gaping chasm between Saville Row and Moss Bros. It was a recommendation from a friend while we were planning our wedding. My husband, his Dad and my Dad and the best man and ushers all got beautifully personalised suits to keep forever which we contributed to instead of us paying for something generic which had to go back.
Although the very first person who measured the boys in London was a little rude when they arrived, service soon improved and they had a great boys day out with lunch and pool and the pub - like a mini stag really. They all loved the experience.
During the process, ASTF opened a branch in Oxford (where we live) with the fabulous Eddy which made life even easier. My husband was thrilled with his 3 piece slate grey suit and shirt and so was I.
When it came to Christmas this year, I wanted to surprise my hubby so contacted Eddy in secret asking for him to find my husband's mmeasurements and help me create another tailored shirt (this one less formal and more colourful) so he could get even more use out of the suit.
Eddy was so helpful and brilliant in making sure the present was kept a secret from my husband - he had absolutely no idea and was thrilled with it.
A Suit That Fits is a really brilliant company that makes good tailoring really accessible to normal people. e'd definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.
Ordered two suits and two shirts. First suit and shirt had to be remade they were such poor fit. Second suit and shirt (which should have matched the remade originals) were similarly poor fitting. I don't know if it was just my advisor but he seemed obsessed with having an extremely tight fit on everything - and I mean so tight that I could tell the garments would have torn. Despite repeated attempts to get the suit altered to give a looser fit - which the advisor seemed to have a pathological dislike of (e.g. me: 'it needs a good 3/4" here' , him: 'ok, I will open it up 1/4') I gave up and ended up getting both suits adjusted at my own expense by a local tailor. Not a good experience though I see others here have faired much better.
If you read the other reviews about ASTF, you can clearly see that the suits are very well fitted and of a high quality. I dont need to qualify that anymore.
What worried me was delivery time, consistency of quality, customer service and a fit guarantee of some sort. Ie. I didn't want to pay for something and have to wait a year for it to only come riddled with mistakes with no one there to help me and no guarantee.
I am happy to report that:
-the suit was delivery in about 8 weeks after 2 fittings (any sooner and I would have questioned the quality, any later and I would be impatient).
-the quality was excellent and any minor errors were pinpointed and rectified almost immediately (and included in the initial fitting cost).
-the customer service was spot on. Their advisers will help you with anything you need and have a great eye for detail.
- post production, you can have as many fittings as you like to get the fit perfect. Following that, you have an 8 week grace period to ascertain any niggles and get them fixed.
Conclusively; I doubt that I'll go anywhere else ever again.
I've been getting my suits from ASTF for nearly four years now, six suits and an overcoat later I can't recommend them enough.
The comprehensive range of materials means they've always got exactly what you're looking for. They're designed to fit you perfectly and are exceptionally well made so they last much longer than off the peg suits.
If you've never tried them I'd highly recommend it, you won't look back.
Well tailored, not rushed, never felt like an inconvenience, never pushed to make a decision.
This is a company that should be teaching a few others what 'personal service' really means.
Will be recommending this company to my work colleagues
I have been shopping with ASTF for over a year now. I possess 6 suits, 2 jackets and 5 shirts from them, so i feel fairly well qualified when i say that they are a great company to do business with. The diligence, knowledge and frankness of Jonathan Haynes at the Birmingham branch makes the experience utterly painless and the quality of the finished product is first rate. Thanks to all involved!
The initial visit with Mr Haynes was quite informal but still seemed professional, with Mr Haynes taking the time to listen to my requirements and offer his opinion. The suit and shirt are both very nice and fit me very well. I have no hesitation in recommending you guys, and I will definitely visit again. Thanks.
Very professional service, both in person and online. It is very easy to drop them an email and get a response, or my style adviser is happy to take calls directly on his mobile whenever. Really high quality materials and tailoring result in great products for both suits and shirts.
Get on their mailing list for some really good value special offers, and the discount voucher on your birthday is a nice touch.
A company that genuinely seems to care about making their customers feel special.
