Taste rare Scotch Whiskys and explore their origin and heritage with Dr. Ira Goodman – local expert, educator and collector.
“Expert bespoke craftsmanship with a wide array of fabrics done in the old world way. Highly recommended.”
“It was good to work
with tailors who are onsite”
“I just used Richard Bennett Custom Tailors for the first time, and I am impressed. Their staff of experts is professional, personable, and the workmanship is impeccable.”
“What a fantastic experience! They made me a suit EXACTLY to my specifications, and it fits my body perfectly! I am definitely returning to get another custom made suit.”
“I have also worked with other top bespoke tailors in London, New York, Montreal, And Toronto. Richard Bennett is at the top of the game.”
I can’t stress enough how happy I was with the final product…That final fitting where I got to see my suit in its finished state, I had a HUGE smile on my face.
