I read all the reviews out there before going with Matthew-including the negative ones. None of them were true.
The first meeting went through the A-Z of suits and every possible customization was possible. Vast amounts of different fabric and I couldn't find one that stuck out, so a new delivery was brought from upstairs and sure enough, I found what I was after. Matthew took copious amounts of measurements and notes about my posture and walking style, down to how I put my hands in my pockets.
3 weeks later, I had a shell fitting-it Wasnt quite right, so I was back again in 2 weeks.
Matthew tool the utmost care with the whole process. Everything had to be perfect. He would often stand and look at you from different angles just getting a feel for your posture and how to let the suit define it better. I had 5 fittings overall-all when they were convenient for me, and all with Matthew.
This really was a great experience. Worth every cent-which is still far less than some other longer established bespoke tailors in Sydney-and I cannot see how the quality or craft could be better.
I would recommend Matthew Lawrence to anyone.
Check out the great whiskey collection too.
