In the trade this is called an abortion... Go to a good men's store or tailor and have a suit made, you will save money in the long run
This is why you go to specialty stores and established tailors to have suits made, they stand behind them. I get at least 1 "internet" suit a week in my shop to be fixed. it ends up costing them more than if they would have come to me in the first place.Oak Hall is a very fine store too, I had just forgot about them.
They have done all of our reweaving for years... Great people too!
If you're in Memphis, why not go to James Davis https://www.facebook.com/pages/James-Davis/114905805252971 Great store with KNOWLEDGEABLE staff. I'm sure you can find a great suit that fits in your price range.

That has changed, they are looking to sell, this was reported today.
