I think it there is a possibility it varies from location to location for what works logistically. I am merely guessing at one possibility. BB probably has a network of trusted tailors to perform work. Maybe a combination of in house and out of house tailors for flexibility to handle differing levels of demands. They do a good job most of the time. I've had many pairs of pants hemmed, waist and seat taken in on pants to say I've been satisfied. My BB fitz suit awhile...
If I remember correctly, their tailoring department is not local or in house at each location.  It is shipped out to be tailored elsewhere.  I can't say for sure but it might even be sent to Southwick which Brooks Brothers owns.
Echoes my experience as well for tailoring, if you have more mass in the shoulders and chest. Though there is a chance that the shoulders might extend out and not be optimal.I'm so bummed nobody carries a 52 short. Hopefully MTM will fix things for me.
Would it be possible to create a list of the shoes that are eligible for this? So many good pairs of EG have been carried by your store. Would be great to allow people to revisit some older pairs that perhaps due to timing were missed out on. I don't know why, but I still want a pair of those bauxite westminsters from a few moons ago.
Pretty sure even if they did allow GMTO, the cordovan up charge alone would make it very hard to reach 5 or 6.
  Would like more details on Primo please!
Thanks all, made a purchase from Nick.  Crossing my fingers these work out.  
Quick sizing advice help. I wear an E width on EG 888 snug but comfortable. How does the MH71 E width toe box and forefoot width fit in relation to EG 888 in the same size?
I wasn't thrilled with the brown museum calf. I like this plum museum calf. Crossing my fingers there's enough interested parties for a rerun.
For reference again. A young designer named Paula Gerbase was hired to modernize the brand. You can google it. I personally seen to think JL has moved to compete directly against Berluti. One cannot deny Berluti shoes are eye catching and unique, whether or not in good taste through a classical lens is another matter.
