Couldn't get back to you till now due to work and also just got back yesterday after attending a seminar over the weekend, at which I virtually wore the suit for 3 days. And it is everything you said it was -- and more! Perfect fit, extremely comfortable and the cloth is simply magnificent. After the two days wrapped in the package you sent it in to get to me (and I must say, what great service -- sent on same day ordered and received 2 days later!), not a wrinkle. I cannot believe it will be 50 years old next year, looks like it was just made, either it was hardly worn or else it must have been extremely well cared for -- and I've no doubt it will certainly outlast me! And the fine detailing (eg the leather strips inside bottom of trouser hem, which still look almost new) is just extraordinary. Just goes to show what one of the best tailors in the world can do. I will have to drop by Gieves & Hawkes when next in London to see their records as I'd like to know what the cloth is. So, thanks again for your great service and a fantastic suit!
