Quality suit-making company Chester Barrie is opening a dedicated room for its made-to-measure suits in the City’s branch of House of Fraser next week. Superior cloths are on offer and tailors will be present at all times to measure customers up.
To celebrate, the company is offering City A.M. readers a free waistcoat with every made to measure suit ordered from its House of Fraser departments in the City and on Oxford Street. Just bring in a copy of City A.M. and Chester Barrie will cut you a three-piece suit for the price of a two-piece.
The offer runs from now until the end of November. House of Fraser, 68 King William Street, EC4N 7HR. www.chesterbarrie.co.uk
