“Dan & Team,
I could not be happier with my trousers! The fabric, construction, and (most importantly) fit are all spot-on. Like many of your clients, I was somewhat skeptical of this process, having tried several MTM options, both online and in-person, and always being disappointed. But I took a chance because I did not think that the AOS team would be satisfied with that status quo. My faith was definitely rewarded and I look forward to ordering more garments in the future. I will upload the final fitting photos soon, although I’m not sure any additional alterations are needed. Thank you again for providing such a quality product and great value.”

“To Dan & the AOS Team:
Firstly, I’ve been a fan of your website for a long time, but have to admit that I was a little skeptical when I made my first purchase… So today I am so happy to say that after receiving my first (of many) suits from you guys, I am BLOWN AWAY!
I’ve tried just about every “online tailoring” brand, and even visited a couple of the NYC in-person bespoke shops that you’ve mentioned over the years on TSBmen/AOS… Long story short, I’ve never been satisfied. I either received junk suits that looked (and admittedly, were) cheap, or I paid $2,500+ for “bespoke” suits made in China that left me feeling stiff and corporate (and frankly, ripped off).
The combination of your basted fitting process, your unstructured construction, your selection of premium fabrics, and your American manufacturing truly sets you guys apart – in a BIG way. After receiving your product – and shopping in this market for a few years now – I’m actually shocked that you are able to deliver this level of quality (product and service) and your price points…
Anyway, I could keep gushing…it makes me very happy to see your level of garment production as high as your level of content production. Let me finish by saying that you’ve scored a client for life, and I’m already planning to take advantage of your bulk order discount to re-do my entire wardrobe.
Keep up the excellent work. Keep innovating and putting these other brands to shame!”
~Ryan, New York City
Just got the suit and it was the highlight of my vacation. Once again, I’m impressed.
This being my second time around with AOS, I was hoping for a perfect fit upon opening the package and I’m happy to report that’s exactly the case. The first suit required (minor) alterations, but my Cherrywood is ready to rock and roll out of the box and fits my body like a warm hug. Plus, there is plenty of allowance for future alterations, should I let the beer gut get out of control.
Once again the pictures don’t do the fabric justice. From afar, I noticed deep reds and browns but upon closer examination I found myself seeing tans, blacks, and maybe even purples, all blended together in a collage of water-painted earth-tones. This blend of color, combined with the soft texture of the flannel, creates this wonderful effect in which the suit appears slightly different, depending on lighting, the angle, or who’s checking you out in your new suit.
In my line of work suits aren’t necessary, and even though I have a closet full of the standard worsted’s, it’s hard to incorporate them into the work week. Coworkers, clients and sometimes strangers on the street think I’m either interviewing for a new job or attending a funeral. It’s a sad state of affairs when a man has to defend his choice to dress well, but the point here is that the Cherrywood creates an opportunity to suit up on a more casual level. It’s sharp- and will look great with a tie but will also look great with a Henley or t-shirt if you’re into that kind of thing. I attribute this versatility to the texture and slim cut.
The last thing I’ll touch on is the weight. This is labeled as two-season, but here in Ohio I expect to wear this at least three, excluding the hottest summer months. Because of the word flannel, I was expecting something a bit heavier, and surprised to find the suit is light and breathable. To me this is great. It creates more opportunity to layer in the colder months.
All in all I’m completely satisfied, and can’t wait to decide on suit number three.
“This suit is f*ucking awesome!
The fit is perfect and the quality is superb.
I’m actually shocked that you are able to be so accurate with just photos and emails.
Thanks for everything you do, and answering all my questions through the process!
Will be ordering more soon, looking at the 5 suit deal discount now (probably 4 suits + 1 overcoat), might need your help putting together the best fabrics for a complete wardrobe…”
~ Ben, London
Just wanted to let you know that I received my coat last week and absolutely love it.
I’ve worn it out a few times and its the perfect coat for a mild San Francisco day! The coat in person is 100X better than in the pictures.
I wanted to attach some photos of it on and get your opinion as to whether you think any additional tailoring should be done. I’m wearing it over a t-shirt, but I think that’s fine since I typically wear it over a dress shirt which is just a bit thicker.
Overall, it’s incredible and its really hard for me to believe how a few measurements and pictures can get a garment fitting so well like this.
Much appreciated and already saving up for my next pieces!”
~ Alex, San Francisco
I just received my new suit and I want to let you know how excited I am about it.
Rarely did I ever have a suit that fits so well!
Your fitting process, etc. just works sensational, even between the USA and me over here in Germany.
Once again, thank you very much.
Looking forward to receiving my next orders…
Your happy customer,
“This coat…this coat is gorgeous. Worth every penny.
The texture is beautiful, and the length is perfect for my height. It’s a very well-designed garment, and really well made. Nice work!
The fit is also absolutely perfect to wear over only a shirt and trousers (casually)… I love it.
Sorry for the long delay in uploading my fitting. Work has been keeping me extra busy lately.
Thanks again Dan for expediting the order and getting it to me so quickly! I really appreciate that level of service. You guys rock.
~ Nick, Virginia
“Dan, Karyn, Will and Alex,
I wanted to thank you all for the hard work and the exceptional product that you have produced. I have followed the site since it’s inception and have seen the many changes Dan and the team has been through. When it was first mentioned that a line was being produced for his online clients, I have to say I was a excited and a bit skeptical. I have seen and purchased ‘online’ tailored clothing from other vendors in the past and was never as satisfied as I have been with my local tailor.
I reached out to Dan with a specific request for two pair of trousers, that weren’t on the site, and he has been very accommodating in helping me find exactly what I was looking for. Karyn and Will were also readily available to answer questions through email in a prompt manner. Now that the garments have arrived, I am more than impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of these trousers. For anyone on the fence I would definitely suggest AOS as their clothier of choice. Dan has a true passion which is something I have found amiss with other vendors. I look forward to commissioning more garments in the near future. Thank you again and continued success.
P.S. I will be sending fit pics soon.”
~ Cameron, Kentucky
Hey Dan & Team,
I just got the final garment a few days ago and uploaded the fitting photos on my online account just now.
First things first – the fit of the suit is a major improvement from the try-on garment, and is damn near perfect!
Thank you very much for incorporating all my prior feedback.
I don’t believe this garment (or my pattern) needs any adjustments for my next orders…
Also…my girlfriend thinks it looks like a million bucks!
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with my new suit, shirt and overcoat from you guys.
I’ve experimented with just about every made-to-measure brand online and have been disappointed many times. As we discussed, they either don’t cut it properly for my shoulders/posture, or the garment just feels cheap and doesn’t have that “bespoke feel”.
Having gone through the full process I now totally understand why the fitting garment is so important! …I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to have actual experts reviewing my garments and listening to my feedback.
Sorry for the long email, but as someone who’s been called a “particular client” more than once, I just wanted to say that I am totally sold on your fitting process and impressed with your attention to detail both in terms of garment quality and customer service.
You have a lifetime client here, looking forward to my next orders…”
~ Marcus, Toronto
I just uploaded my final fitting for the three piece suit.
I have been wearing the coat around for the past week to be sure the fit was perfect. I’m really impressed with how it came out. I think the fit is spot on.
I took the whole suit to the best tailor in town (he makes made to measure suits as well) and he was very impressed with the fit and with the fabric (even though he knew you were the competition). He thought the fit was perfection. His helper lady said the suit was magnificent. Pretty strong praise for the competition.
I’m having two of my other MTM suits tailored to match the fit of the one you made. Yours was the best fit of the three I have so far.
I would like to order another suit (or suits) once you review the final fitting!”
Sorry for uploading these pictures so late, I was enjoying the coat so much I forgot the final step [uploading fitting pictures for final review].
I’ve already been on trips with the coat and have made it my go-to when the weather dips. I couldn’t ask for a more perfect coat.
I realize I didn’t button it up all the way [for the fitting pictures]. I hope it doesn’t effect how your tailors determine the fit. When I buttoned it up all the way, it felt comfortable even with a turtleneck on.
Thanks so much for the excellent work on the coat. It’s truly a magical feeling putting on something that feels great and makes you look your best.
Also, I love the custom monogrammed name on the inside; it’s truly the cherry on top.”
“Hey Dan & Team,
I’ve wearing my new pieces and they make all the other clothes in my closet seem like they don’t fit at all!
I should have saved all that money and waited for you to open this shop so I could fill my closet.
The only things wish is that I had a job where I could wear the full suit and not just the waistcoat and trousers!
Looking forward to my next orders, and my wedding suit.
~Mathew, South Carolina
“Dan & AOS,
I want to wear my coat any chance I get until it gets to warm (fast approaching). I feel like it fits better every time I wear it…
I’ve never wanted winter weather to stay around like this, of course it doesn’t!
The chest and shoulders just fit immaculately. It’s so well done. I’m amazed by how well it sits and how easily I can still move around in it, especially my arms.
High armholes are so nice!”
“Hey Dan and team,
I wanted to write you a note about my experience with AoS Tailoring — when I first saw your announcement on the blog last year that you were unveiling a bespoke tailoring service, I had never seriously considered such an undertaking myself — that was something that only people with greater means than I could manage. But after being a longtime reader and coming to understand the seriousness with which you take your work on the blog, and the incredible amount of effort you and your team had clearly devoted to making your online bespoke concept work, I was confident enough in you guys that I jumped on the opportunity to participate without any reservations.
I’ve had the final suit now for a few weeks, and I now feel completely obligated to gush a bit about the quality of the garment I received, and how much it has surpassed my expectations. I couldn’t be more pleased with how well my suit fits and the quality of its construction; there’s simply no comparison with certain retailers of off-the-rack suits and last-mile (sometimes rather slipshod) tailoring that I have bought from in the past. This is especially true for a guy who is a very lanky 6’6″ tall, who consistently struggles to find well-fitting jeans, let alone a full suit! (any plans to branch out into bespoke denim in the future? ;) I have no doubt that the 3-piece suit I received will end up being one of the highlights (and certainly the best value for my money) of my wardrobe.
Finally, I wanted to thank you and your team for simultaneously providing me with the tools and advice I previously didn’t realize I needed, in order to better express myself as a man with his own style. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received when busting out pieces of my new suit as separates at my work, or every day by simply taking the advice I’ve received from AoS to heart. I’ve come a long way from how I was in college a couple short years ago, and your blog has helped me with that in a very big way.
I adore the ivy glenplaid, just as you predicted.”
“Dan & AOS,
This is a damn beautiful suit…
I wore the Chocolate DB Jacket out for drinks – loved it, and received some great compliments.
Also, your notes from the try-on garment were helpful for me to understand why I’ve had issues with clothing in the past.
I could have saved some money going this route a long time ago. I appreciate the insight…
Looking forward to the others.
~ David, Virginia
“I received my Natural Tweed 3-piece Suit and couldn’t be happier. Definitely the best Christmas gift I got… even though I bought it myself.
If anyone is considering a fall or winter suit that will stand the test of time – this is it. The pictures don’t do it justice. In person you can really see the intricate weave of tan and brown hues, which creates this wonderful earthy, warm tone. It’s a poor analogy, but the suit looks like it was carved from a cliffside of the Scottish isles. That’s the best way I can describe it. It’s rugged, manly and sophisticated at the same time. The fabric is a work of art.
Also, Dan and the team did a fantastic job of altering and tailoring the garment to my unique shape. I have a closet full of custom tailored Brooks Brothers suits, and this suit just fits better. It’s slimmer in all the right places, but not tight or restricting. I don’t know how Dan was able to craft a suit that fits so well based on some grainy IPhone pictures, but he did. After trying on the suit, I felt like all my other suits were baggy, sloppy messes. Kudos.
The garment is also surprisingly interchangeable. So far I’ve paired the jacket with navy flannel, forest green wool, chocolate wool and cream twill pants. They all match beautifully.
To wrap it up, definitely worth it. All the way. Once you try this on, you just feel like a country gentleman.”
~ Nick, Ohio
I just wanted to say thank you.
I tried on my Ivy Glen Check suit today, and I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a thing, since I got my first Gameboy.
I’ve tried on other suits before (though this is the first I’ve ever owned), and I always feel like I’m wearing someone else’s clothes. I’ll admit I was even a little worry with the fitting garment. The suit looked cool on other people in you blog posts, but I felt silly in my fitting photos and I didn’t really know how to articulate what I wanted, so I figured, Welp, maybe it’s not the suits; maybe I’m just a goof.
Well, I tried on my suit today and couldn’t help but think, Damn, I look fly. So, thanks for that.
Thanks for putting effort into what you do. Thanks for making a good product. Thanks for being dope.”
~ Mark-Anthony, Washington DC
The suit fits very well and looks great.
It’s remarkable how well it fits simply by using a few photographs.
It fits as well as the in-person bespoke fittings I’ve had.
Looking forward to adding to my collection.
Thanks again, congratulations on this venture, and job well done!
~ David, New York City
I recently received the jacket and waistcoat from my order!
First off, let me say that I’m very pleased and impressed with the quality of work on both garments. They both fit amazingly well… The jacket is so versatile; I know I’m going to be able to wear it for years to come. Well done!
I will upload fitting pictures soon (I’ve been procrastinating…it’s more fun to just wear the thing!)”
~ Nicholas, Virginia
My free try-on shirt was my go-to shirt during my trip Brazil. I wore it everywhere!
And it irons so perfectly. Amazing when I compare, even this try-on garment, to off-the-rack garments.
Can’t wait for the final order to arrive!
~ Theo, Little Neck NY
