Sweeping generalizations about what's best for people aren't very productive. I definitely think there's a place for MTM in the spectrum and one shouldn't just jump from OTR to bespoke.   Personally, a 40L napoli from SS would have fit me 'good enough' by quite a few people's standards. But if I really wanted to dial in the fit, OTR+tailoring would have been cost prohibitive, if even possible. With regards to the napoli fit, I have the shoulders of a 40 but the chest...
  They have two levels of MTM, one with a half-canvas suit that's $600 and one with a full-canvas suit that's supposed to start at $900. They had a limited selection of discontinued fabrics (all VBC) that were 'on sale' starting at $725 in the full-canvas suit option.

I've been lurking the eHaberdasher thread on StyleForum for quite some time. I'm finally ready to make another staple suit purchase and I had some questions on the sizing of the Benjamin suits. I range from a 40L - 44L in various brands so it's kind of a toss up.
