Don’t Be Just Another Face in the Crowd
Thick as Thieves has proudly been attiring men since 2006.
Our aesthetic is influenced by early – mid 1960s style, which was the era and look that I have always been interested in since I first discovered the culture of suits back in the early 1990s.
At the same time, we feel it is important to stay modern, and reflect the times we are currently in and incorporate our influences taken from vintage styling, rather than just recreate vintage suits.
So while some of our styling cues look 1960s oriented, we also cater to the modern fit that modern men want, which is more streamlined and less boxy than our predecessors wore.
Thick as Thieves, since its first day in 2006, has always been about providing a high quality suit at prices that were within reach of most men.
I’ve always liked to think of this as a sartorial version of a “punk rock band”… unique vision, high quality and working class affordability.
Over a decade and many thousands of clients later, I like to think that Thick as Thieves has carved out its place within the niche of custom men’s suits.
Why Thick as Thieves?
One of the first things we’ve seen over the past 10+ years is the resurgence of men who wanted to wear suits, and as a result a huge growth in online custom suit tailoring that simply didn’t exist to this degree back in 2006.
So with so many options out there, why should you choose Thick as Thieves instead of (insert maker of your choice)?
It’s a good question, and a fair question, and one that everyone should ask himself before undertaking any online tailoring process.
Firstly, we don’t use marketing gimmicks and sales rhetoric. You know the sort, promises of “a perfect fit”. Not to pat ourselves on the back but we certainly have created a close to ideal fit for many men, because that’s what we strive to do. But making such promises are deceptive, where oftentimes it is necessary to tweak aspects of the fit, and especially in a mostly sight-unseen Made to Measure process, you can see where such claims only serve to make sales, not to properly attire you, the client.
Secondly, because this is not a corporate funded company, nor is it employed by staff who may not care about your concerns, our customer service is personalized and here for you every day. Every e-mail is answered to same day or within a day (or by Monday if sent over the weekend), and it is our #1 priority to make sure that any questions/issues/problems is acknowledged and resolved to your satisfaction. I personally correspond with everyone, so you can rest assured that there is indeed a face behind the company name, and your concerns won’t be kicked down the street for someone else to resolve.
Finally, with over 13 years now in the online Made to Measure suit business, we have countless number of satisfied clients over the years who have come back every time he desires a new suit, and we’ve been privileged to be a part of so many personal sartorial journeys.
