they at least had Barrett shoes at ridiculous low prices on the latest markdown
while bespoke is supposed to be about getting a thing exactly as you want don't make the error of thinking that every (or even any) tailor can accomodate. Try to get a sense of the tailor's style or sweet spot by looking at his work and I'd suggest don't deviate too much from that. I'd also suggest going into the meeting with at least a rough sense of what you're looking for but talk to him about it and be open-minded. If he's any good he might have much better ideas...

To OP's point, I think the issue is whether he has access to the right tailors, e.g., his mention of Matt's Rubinacci. If you have a normal build, OTR can look great IMO. An honest seller would tell you, however, that when you buy a high end garment (e.g., Kiton) it's about the fabric as much as anything else. You're not paying 3k+ for the silhouette (even though it's nice). Kiton's schtick is exclusivity on their fabrics. You're paying for that, significant labor...
I just called Stel's where I recently bought APC and had them altered. Consistent with J, they said don't put in the dryer and I should be fine.
If you truly feel that way about her, I wouldn't give up so easily. There's a lot of sound advice above, but I would urge giving it a second, third fourth shot and at some point tell her what you just told the board. if she doesn't bite, then follow all the other advice above. She might be acting the way she is because she's hurt, and she might still be recovering from your prior behvior: break up, then hook-up when convenient. If she's as smart as you think she is...
anyone go today? was it worth going?
FWIW: I don't remember my brand, but I have a small travel steamer and while it's fine for wool, I wouldn't recommend it for cotton. It would take so long you'd be better off with an iron in terms of quality and time. Maybe things are different with those larger floor model steamers
