Kevin Seah now has a young tailor working for him who apprenticed at Sedwell, one of the best on Savile Row. Sedwell is known for both its meticulous finishing and the emphasis its proprietor places on teaching. So that may make Seah worth a look. It is also a bit of a novelty in that the young tailor is a Lubavitch Rabbi. he used to blog or instagram at "Rabbi Tailor" so you might want to have a look at that, first.
I saw the Wool retrospective at the Guggenheim. I liked it, and can also see how it is attractive to collectors. If Apocalypse Now is your thing, you might also like Mel Bochner. Similar work.
