Anyone know what happened to King and Rook, they aren't answering calls. I was a long time customer (before King and Rook) and I hope they are still around. Their custom fit for me is the best out of the other MTM stores.
You ever hear back?

Went to check their store, didn't look like anyone was there. Maybe they are out of business again? Damn shame

It's to my understanding that Kevin who led the King & Rook team left the company. He might be starting something new by himself soon.

I think out of everything, the customer service has been top notch with Kevin. Prices and quality were pretty good too. Hopefully he finally gets what he wants out of his next venture.

Going to be in Toronto for 6 weeks and would like to get a suit if possible during this timeframe. Do you guys think it's possible to get a MTM or bespoke in 6 weeks time and where?
Current Fido customer.
Ex Koodo customer. Beware of their tactics.

FIRST POST

Updated pictures. This suit is from Empire International Tailors in HK. Both suit and shirt were commissioned and paid for. Measured by the salesman in the morning, first basted fitting was done in the afternoon. Picked up the suit three days later. At the time, did not know what to look for in a good fitting suit.

Had the suit and shirt pressed, so any wrinkling should be solely due to fit. Pictures are overexposed to show as much detail as possible. The first four pictures are with the shirt and trousers alone, the fifth picture shows the tightness of the trousers around the thighs, and the last four are the full suit buttoned up.

I'm no expert on men's suits, but this suit jacket (suit number one) looks too small/tight.

Those trousers look really tight when you're sitting down.
Shirt is really off... looks like there's excess material in various places.

On a separate note, those shoes are awful. Go get some oxfords.

ASCOT CHANG SUIT

This suit is from Ascot Chang, IFC Mall location. Both suit and shirt were commissioned and paid for. Measured by the salesman in the morning, first basted fitting was 4 days later, with a full basted jacket (instead of half sleeves like at other places). Suit was received 5 weeks after order through the post.

Had the suit pressed, so any suit wrinkling should be solely due to fit. Shirt was laundered at home and dried in the machine, but no ironing was done. Pictures are overexposed to show as much detail as possible. The first four pictures are with the shirt and trousers alone, the fifth and sixth picture shows the tightness of the trousers around the thighs, and the last four are the full suit buttoned up.
