Bob at iTailor and I go back a long way! He was one of the first advertisers on AskAndy and I met him on a trip to Thailand.

Oxxford Clothes, a legend in suit making, was founded in Chicago in 1916, and is the only manufacturer in America that tailors custom garments by hand.
I had the pleasure (and it was a pleasure) to get an Oxxford made-to-measure suit, which is as near to bespoke as possible.
I was measured in Beverly Hills during one of their trunk shows and when we had an AskAndy event in Chicago later in the year the high point of which was a tour of the Oxxford factory, they had my suit ready for the second fitting by non-other than the renowned Rocco!
They are carried by several high end men’s clothing stores (check their website for locations).
