Frustrated by their own attempts to find perfectly-fitting shirts and suits at reasonable prices, three years ago Edit Suits Co. founders Reto Peter and Patrick Jungo set out to employ the skills they’d learned in the tech and fashion e-commerce sectors to radically overhaul high-end men’s tailoring.
Since then Edit Suits Co. has rapidly grown to be one of the biggest made to measure tailors in London: first with a space in the City, then adding a showroom in prestigious Mayfair soon after, which the brand have very recently relocated to a location near St Pauls. Meanwhile GQ Magazine has praised Edit’s “made-to-measure tailoring at off-the-peg prices” and Time Out London gave extensive coverage to the firm in a recent guide to the capital’s top made to measure tailors.
We caught up with Reto and Patrick for the latest in our ‘My London’ series.
Soho’s vibrant restaurant scene and its proximity to our Mayfair showroom make it a go-to place in the evenings. There’s always a new place to discover.
Favourite place for brunch:
Granger & Co. at Westbourne Grove. The queue might be long, but it’s well worth the wait. Try their Ricotta Pancakes!
Best coffee in London:
Monmouth Coffee with outlets in Borough Market and Covent Garden. Their drip coffees are amazing, you won’t find anything like it at the big chains!
Favourite gallery or museum:
The Science Museum is always good entertainment on a rainy Sunday, for kids and adults alike.
Tell us a secret:
For a cosy evening out, push the bookshelves at the back of Milroy’s in Soho.
Favourite place to shop:
We get our wardrobes almost exclusively from Edit Suits Co. Unsurprising perhaps.
Favourite place to find inspiration:
Walking the streets in the City gives us great ideas for new fabrics and styles. A lot of Londoner’s have a great sense of style!
Best London destination for a date:
The Shed in Notting Hill. The relaxed atmosphere and experimental menu won’t fail to create a great mood.
Regent’s park is amazing for sports – especially for early morning runs. And it’s a great place to relax on a sunny afternoon.
Favourite food market:
Broadway Market – Eat tapas at El Ganso (get an outside table!) and watch the market scenery unfold in front of you.
Your sanctuary in the city:
The tennis courts at Regent’s Park – playing a match in the midst of Regent’s Park’s greenery feels like an instant mini-vacation.
What inspires you?
All entrepreneurs that defied the odds. We’re suckers for entrepreneur’s biographies.
This season I’m loving:
Light coloured linen jackets, paired with chinos. It’s the perfect outfit for the warm weather!
