J. Fitzpatrick? He's good with shipping. Carmina has made it's way Stateside as well. 
I've been to Harry Rosen and Garrison.    If you want something simply the Samuelsson MTM program is actually quite good. The fabrics are excellent and the pricing is very reasonable.

While the subtle...
Obviously not
@lawyerdad  Free Your Mind....
Thanks for the tip. Sounds like a great project (love the fabric!) but I'm a bit of a tricky fit (Drop 10). Never tried anything of theirs so I can't commit. Good luck!
How do we get an idea about the sizing? Saying I'm a 42 is well and great but experience tells me the fit can be quite off.
