That extreme was just intended to point out that MTM is no guarantee of good quality, as suggested. If two pieces were the same price, and all other things equal (location of production, type of company etc) you would assume the RTW would he higher…

The difference, in my opinion, is a matter of construction and materials. Google track suit. Google sweat pants.. The difference used to be a bit more pronounced... Marketing and "search terms", would seem to have merged the two terms. Track suits "were" more of a…

Of course. On your comment above you spoke of RTW and MTM of the same price; am referring to that scenario. Why in that case woud you expect the quality of RTW to be better than MTM?

Made to measure can be very cheap. You can get it for a a couple of hundred dollars - made in Asia often, by a company with no physical store. RTW can be very expensive - Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren Purple Label etc.

I'm sticking with tracky bottoms and trainers and will insist anything else is just incorrect. :)

Simon, I find that these past few months have increased my convicition of dressing well to work, once that starts getting back to work, which for me means a suit and tie. But also, having spent all this time at home, and indeed sometimes been…

Isn´t sweatpants usually made in cotton. And track suits usually made in polyester (to transport perspiration).

i agree, people who are into clothing will continue to practice their interest albeit in a different genre. more working from home definitely means a significant impact on the tailoring industry. i havent worn a suit in 6 months and I miss it. at home,…

A well-written, well-argued and balanced article. Where I think this period may have a lasting impact is that many men fall between the "don't care about clothes, at all" category and the "likes to dress well" one and simply dress entirely mimetically (i.e., they imitate…

Sorry, typo, meant why would you expect RTW to have better quality. One would have thought MTM would be better in terms of both quality and fit? Having said that, this (wrong?) expectation by me is probably what left me a bit confused with MTM,…

What is the difference there, C? Difference between jogging and track?

Just want to throw in that as a Canadian, I understand sweatpants (or jogging pants) to be something different than tracksuit pants. Both hideous sartorially, so both make the point equivalently, but not the same item of clothing.

As an American please don’t let our imperialistic butchering of English stop you from using proper English terms. I’m sitting at home wearing white jeans, deck shoes, and an RL Polo, and almost feel as if I’m about to leave to watch a yacht race…

On a semi-related note Simon, do you put as much effort into choosing pyjamas and dressing gowns as daywear? I have recently tried to improve my nightwear, having previously been a boxers and t shirt man. Will there ever be a blog post on the…

Yes, that form of stitching - often called a crow's foot - is done to show that a button has been sewn on by hand. Because a machine couldn't sew like that. In fact, I don't think a machine can sew an X-shape either, though…

I don't know either. It's as if repeating a million times in every place in the internet "TRACKSUIT COMFORTABLE" would make everything else uncomfortable. Does anybody here lack comfort when wearing tailored trousers ? Me neither - they are usually made in pleasant fabrics and…

1) They're both important, and both necessary. I don't think there's much point weighing up which is more important, as you need both 2) Sure, I can try and do that at some point

Hey No worries. Yes, if that were the style preference that I would probably choose one of those two - presuming I liked the drape cut too, which I do

I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question. I said that - all other things being equal - you might expect RTW to be greater quality. But they you ask why MTM is greater quality?

I should say it's more about the term taking over in an international media (websites, social media, e-commerce), rather than in day-to-day use in England. Though you do certainly hear more of it in London
