please note this thread is resuscitated. what is the price at retail for Isaia MTM - suit (and for Isaia RTW - suit for that matter) in the U.S.?
that is helpful and will enable us to suggest a tailor to you. i would suggest, from what I have heard, that Sam Disano would be where you are at.
what style would suit your build would have been a good question to start off with. you might find that the options are limited by your price range. what is your price range?
I would have thought that someone with a shape that was difficult to fit would be best advised to use a tailor for best result rather than run the gauntlet of RTW. p.s. you will not get hand made everything for $3,000. it is more like $30,000 and 3 months solid work.
What AS Collection and Shoe would these be?
Pickett has been mentioned before on The London Lounge - www.pickett.co.uk. Does anyone know who the beltmaker is for Pickett?

I notice that some shoes are made with single thickness soles and some shoes are made with double thickness soles. Is there a practical reason for the double thickness soles?
I had thought that Alfred Sargent made shoes for quite a lot of retailers. I was told that Edward Green make RTW for Foster & Sons.
