I've had them make five suits for me. The first suit was too large overall; the second needed slight tweaks. The next three are fine. $899 is getting into higher level fabric from them.
I own the J Crew Aldrige Linen Suit in Navy from a season or two ago. It's fine and wears a bit warmer than you might think. It's held up and I wear it once a week or so in NYC summers. I'm an attorney and it's fine for casual meetings and/or Fridays when I'm heading out later in the evening. For a sub-$500 suit, it's fine. I think that I'd prefer it half-lined, but I'm unsure about how it would drape.

Did anyone else get his with a customs import bill from DHL a few weeks after receiving delivery of ties from Drake's?

My only hope is that when the proxy sends the jeans to you (for a net savings of something less than $20) by an untrackable international shipping method, they get there with as little hassle as possible so that we don't have to deal with another ridiculous thread about what remedy you have against the proxy or original seller. If you want to pay with PayPal you have to be willing to pay for a shipping method that allows you to show that the item was delivered. Period....

I've placed four orders over two years and always had items ship within six weeks. I've had Joe measure me and take the orders and have moved on from the shirts to suits as well. I'll echo that the first suit was off in a few specific area and we've moved on from there and I've been pretty happy with the cut and fit. A friend ordered half a dozen shirts for the first time on the last visit to NYC and had the sample shirt in hand about three weeks later.
Price dropped to $475 with 2 day Fedex for arrival prior to Thanksgiving.
