Thanks jeffreyd. I am 81 and considering getting a new suit. Can't afford a custom tailor at my age. Was considering bespoke tailors in the Seattle area because I now have such a large pot. Have a suspicion that the cost saving is partly from fabrications that ignore the fine linings you describe. Have you ever heard of fabrication techniques from these tailors? They all do a lot of hand waving about their quality, but no real evidence in their ads.
