Unless you come off like a snob beware!
Initially I was impressed at Lord Willy?s. When I picked up my shirts, they didn?t fit me properly, I was quickly dismissed. After wearing a shirt, several of my colleagues agreed, it fit wrong. I brought the shirts back and was told they need additional tailoring only to receive a phone call telling me that the shirts were going to be remade. I was thrilled that I was going to be fitted with new shirts. My new shirts had arrived and I still wasn?t thrilled with the fit. I questioned the loose collar and the blousing at the bottom of the shirt only to be quickly dismissed again. Also I was inquiring about a grey military coat but they were busy so I was rushed out the door, they lost a sale on a coat that I was ready to buy. The new shirts they look OK but not like the bespoke I had made from Turnbull and Asser, maybe it?s due to them being made in a shoddy factory in Hong Kong. The fabric feels cheap and wrinkles very easily unless you use a ton of starch when ironing. Beware of the condescending yet patronizing attitude at Lord Willy?s. Maybe it?s because I?m not the typical cocky yuppy customer?
