***** 5 STAR REVIEW – Stuart BrownI wear suits for business and socially and I love the ones John has made for me. John has made 3 suits for me now, with the fourth on the way as well as an overcoat. I won’t go anywhere else for a suit from now on. I can feel and see the difference between John’s work and other tailors I have used in the past. John has incredible attention to detail and spends time getting the garment shaped just right for my physique. The end result is that I not only look the part but I feel great wearing them. I value John’s advice on how to style my clothes. He has recommended suit colours and patterns I would never have thought of myself but I’m so glad I went with John’s recommendations: they turned out perfect for me, different to what I would have picked. That leaves me standing out from the crowd but in a subtle, tasteful way. John also has advised me on what colour shirts and ties to accompany the suit with – the sort of expertise I don’t have but those small details make all the difference. John also arranged (secretly with my wife for a present!) for a photograph of a tapestry to be converted into a lining for a suit and overcoat for me – not only do they both look gorgeous but they are now truly unique. The Savile Row Club has made all these suits affordable for me and it is my pleasure to wear them, it really is. I get a lot of people ask me who makes my suits. Lastly, John’s a great bloke and I do enjoy a glass of something with him if I manage to get the last fitting of the day!

Exceptional service and experience, working closely with the team over at Wilmslow to design my suit from start to finish. Would highly recommend!!
***** 5 STAR REVIEW – Samuel Jackson
“Outstanding quality & service – I visited John from Phillip Alexander in advance of my wedding. John tailored my navy dinner jacket suit with a bespoke vest and shirt. If you’re wondering where to go – go and see John – I cannot use a review to recommend Phillip Alexander highly enough. I hadn’t had this experience elsewhere and John assured me that I’d be happy with the outcome – that’s an understatement! I doubt any other service could outshine the personalised, charming experience I received. A genuine passion for attention to detail and nothing was too much trouble – I felt re-assured where John used his experience to offer advice – “this is how James Bond wears it” – how could I say no to that…! Thank you.”
***** 5 STAR REVIEW – Andy B
“I had the pleasure of having John from Philip Alexander as my tailor for my wedding suit. I can honestly say it has been one of the most pleasurable experiences of the wedding process. John is a master of his craft, his attention to detail, care and guidance is second to none. The fit of my morning suit is perfect, John considers all the fine details, in my case even down to the size of my watch for one cuff. After having a poor experience from another suit shop down the road in Wilmslow (W&W), John is clearly leagues above anyone else when it comes to tailoring. I’m really pleased with my suit and the service; I would recommend John and Philip Alexander to anyone.”
My initial consultation with Phillip Alexander was a relaxed yet detailed experience. The main objective of the first visit was to get to know my character and understand my aspirations of a wedding suit for the groom. Together we discussed different ways to express my personality through the grooms wedding suit.
I was interested in exploring the use of pattern and texture in an un-conventional way to produce a classic morning suit jacket. Phillip Alexander were not phased by my ideas. Their expertise and creativity turned my vision into an individual yet classic garment.
The subsequent consultations guided me through the finishing touches to my bespoke wedding suit that included adding a waistcoat in a contrasting pinstripe pattern. The bespoke tailored white shirt and white tie completed the look. I felt this level of detail gave my wedding suit the individuality that I was looking for, a unique custom piece.
The finished garment fitted me like no other suit I have ever had.
I felt confident but also comfortable throughout the day and into the evening. There were many compliments from guests commenting on the subtle details that made the suit so special.
Looking back at the tailoring service I feel like Phillip Alexander listened to me, had an abundance of ideas and gave me their dedicated attention to create an elegant final wedding suit, that I will be able to use for many years here on.
My expectations were exceeded. Before I met Phillip Alexander I had a pre-conceived idea of what a typical groom’s wedding suit would look like. Philip Alexander gave me an enjoyable tailoring service that created a wedding suit that I had pride in wearing.
PS: If I may, I want to add a note to my husband’s comments from the Bride’s point of view.
Phillip Alexander felt it imperative that I would be impressed with Ben’s bespoke wedding suit on the day. I was included in the initial consultations so they could understand the ambience we were trying to create for the big day. They also paid particular attention to how the suit would sit long side my wedding dress. I feel their cohesive approach created a well-considered, impressive piece.
We wanted to write to you to thank you for the wonderful tailored
wedding suit hire service you provided for our wedding party. As quite
a large party, we had such varying requirements, yet you ensured
everyone looked and felt wonderful. We had such a magical day and
there were so many comments from our guests about the suits.
From our first appointment with you, we knew we absolutely wanted to
have Philip Alexander suits. The guidance and advice you provided was
fantastic and you ensured that we were making a choice that would work
for everyone. You made us feel comfortable and spent so much time with
us, it really felt like nothing was too much trouble. The time you
spent with us in those first meetings considering all of the options,
thinking about our colour scheme and of course the bridesmaids dresses
really helped us make our decision on the tailored wedding hire suits.
To have tailored wedding hire suits, meant that every suit fitted
perfectly and made all of our groomsmen feel very special. We honestly
don’t believe that we could have had suits that fitted so perfectly
for so many different shapes and sizes from anywhere else.
And the Wedding Suit for the Groom just looked fantastic; if you were
to put him next to a full Savile Row Bespoke Wedding Suit, he would
still look good.
The hassle of organising all nine of the men was taken care of for us
by your wonderful team who took on the task of arranging fittings with
them all directly. As anyone knows who is organising a wedding,
managing fittings to accommodate everyone can be a challenge but we
didn’t have to worry about that.
Nothing was too much trouble and every last tweak that was needed was
done and organised in advance of us collecting the suits, you really
took the stress away for us.
As you know, all of our party decided to have handmade bespoke shirts
because they were so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship that
goes into everything you do. The bespoke shirts looked amazing and we
know they will be cherished and worn on many occasions in the future.
Thank you so much for all of your help and support and of course the
wonderful grooms hire suits you provided. You completely exceeded our
expectations and we will be recommending you to all of our friends
with upcoming weddings. We are sure, that nobody else offers the
service and attention to detail that you do.

ANDREW & JENNIFER LOUDON: WEDDING SUIT HIRE
Just a quick note to express my gratitude regarding the three piece Bespoke Wedding Suit I purchased
for my wedding on the 2nd March 2012. I realise it two years since the wedding, but the time has passed
quickly. In fact my wife and I were in Edinburgh last weekend celebrating our second wedding anniversary
wore my suit for dinner which reminded me to write.
Back in 2012 before the wedding I had contacted several tailors with regard to purchasing a bespoke
suit. Not until, purely by chance, I called at your establishment did I feel confident to place an order
At the initial meeting I was impressed with your knowledge and professionalism, I was guided through
process of measuring, fittings, the design and look of the finished garment.
All my request and requirements were discussed and sound advise was offered.
Once I had placed the order and a timescale ad been discussed I could not wait for the process to
was my anticipation. I Iooked forward to each fitting to see how the garment had developed; and was
impressed with the attention to detail and craftsmanship involved at every stage of manufacture.
Whether it was the length of a sleeve, the width of the lapel or the line of the trousers every subtle
was treated with precision giving the finished garment a real look and feel of quality.
On the actual wedding day having my own Grooms Wedding suit, made specifically for me, really gave me
confidence. Just to know that it fitted perfectly and looked sharp, not flashy, but elegant and
purposely went for a classic black three piece suit so that I could wear it again after the wedding and
I do at every opportunity. I really enjoy wearing it, makes me feel good and it looks great. I am now a
believer that if possible every man should treat himself to a hand made bespoke suit. In fact I enjoy
my suit so much I am planning on having another bespoke suit made, perhaps in tweed this time and I am
looking forward to whole experience because that is what it is – a marvelous experience.

We wanted to write a letter of thanks following our wedding.
We had visited several suit shops but from the moment we walked into Phillip Alexander we both
we had found something special. We were immediately made to feel at ease. There was never
in the store when we had an appointment, which made us feel like we always had your full
that you really cared about our special day.
Mick hadn’t really wanted to wear a morning suit as he didn’t think it would suit him or that
would find one that fitted properly. The sales assistant spent a great deal of time running
the different options that would fit with the traditional theme for our wedding, and encouraging
to try different styles and combinations. This turned out to be a great deal of fun, and much to
delight, Mick was actually convinced to try a morning suit, as the grooms wedding suit, and he
So much time and money is spent on the girls outfits and making sure they look their best, yet
been to so many weddings where the men in the wedding party were wearing tired ill fitting
It was important to us that Mick felt special on our wedding day, so although we were looking
Wedding Suit Hire Service, we felt reassured by the fact that Phillip Alexander’s “wedding suit
garments, were only hired for a set number of weddings, before they are taken out of action. And
one is individually tailored to fit properly, so consequently their suits never have that tired
Mick is originally from the North East of England meaning that his father, best man and one of
ushers had to make long journeys for their wedding suit hire fittings. You were so accommodating
making everybody individual appointments that suited them.
The level of service continued right up until the day before the wedding, when we collected the
suits. The sales assistant made a final check to ensure that we avoided that wedding morning
their being something missing!
Needless to say we were not disappointed with the suits on the day and we received so many
on how lovely they were.

From start to finish our experience with Phillip Alexander has exceeded our expectations, we were made to feel welcomed and could tell from the start the advice given was tip top. Everyone was helpful and above all professional knowing every aspect of suit making down to a tee. As a result our suits all fit perfectly and the quality is second to none.
I would recommend Phillip Alexander again and again we were well looked after, treated like true gentleman and nothing was too much trouble. Absolutely over the moon with how the suit fits and looks. I have never had such a perfectly fitting suit.
Honestly I am truly grateful.
We’ll be popping in at some point for John to re-tailor the wedding suit to a lounge suit, as we said.
