Can anyone recommend a decent Tailor in the South East (preferably Brighton)?

Go to London. 

Does anyone know what type Jump the Gun suits are?

I dont know if there constructed the same but Adam of London suits are half canvassed I believe.

Edit: most so-called designer suits 2 or 3 times the price of JTG and AoL are fused. If someone has that cash to spend why not go bespoke??  Convenience and ignorance I suppose.

AoL and JTG are constructed exactly the same.

Cheers. Although a 36 chest, I wear JtG 16 as the 15.5 comes up a bit snug overall. 16, while still fitted, is not as slim. I own several, if the white OCBD was stocked This post would not be here.  ;)

sorry ran out, end of year maybe more. I also agree with cba, french cuff and button down is not for me either.

You're right detroitmike. 41" chest would never get in our 15.5" collar, sorry.

from my experience. A 15" collar in his shirts would fit a 36" chest loosely and a 38" chest better. A 15.5" collar is much nearer a 38" chest and wouldn't be super slim in my opinion.
Our JTG 15" collar is only good for up to a 36" chest maximum, very fitted. They don't work on everyone....
I wear an Adam tab 15" which is ok on the body but not really very fitted and I measure 36". You could always take it in.
Hope this is of some help.

i have a JTG gingham and ive never been massively happy with it.  its a soft "cheescloth?" type material which lacks the "structure" of, say a ben sherman which could be had for the same money.  is that still the case.

personal thing and i do feel bad doing JTG down as i live and die in their strides, and they are lovely to deal with.

"Feel Bad" Mr D. we are just so upset that I don't know what to say.  I am joking of course  ;D .
  We have tried to improve the cloth and give them a better handle. Our new double colour Ginghams would likely feel much better.  I would of course always recommend Adam of London but there is a massive difference in cut as there is with any Ben Shermans.
We promise to try to do better........

Tempted by a sky Blue one myself now...

I think Carol used to hang out with the Small Faces back in the day which might give her a little insight.

Steve next door to Adam of London in Portabello always seems to get decent reviews.

I have two of these. Work for me.

Very nice but you've got to admit that the button closure rolls quite high on this jacket compared to a lot of two button suit jackets out there.
Happy to admit that. That's partly why I like it and not being like other ones is just a bonus I reckon.
