From my experience - that was 2000, but I think is still relevant - go for the chinese tailors, not for the indians. I've made the mistake of going to an indian tailor, and the sheer result was throwing out of the window 200 $. The suit was baggy, the shirts were unwearable. There are some upscale chinese tailors in the shopping arcade of the Oriental Mandarin hotel - the lady there seemed knowledgeable and they offered three fittings. The price was not very low - at that...

Yep, at least with the women I want to be!

Campaigning is not good for your shoes and clothes, there is a lot of wear and tear that you cannot avoid. Seeing Sen. Obama, I won't say he is a slob, just a candidate for the highest office in his country who has no time or energy to make wardrobe maintenance.
You are in the process of becoming an officer and gentleman! Are you going to dance in dinner jacket, or tails and white tie, which is the norm for a Vienna Opera Ball - see the director of the Vienna opera, he is in full ceremonial white tie, with his decorations and orders in full, not in miniature.
