My guess is ~100 for the jacket and ~40 for the pants.

My guess is that (outside the HK makers) you'll be hard pressed to get custom shirts in the $150 - $165 range net of all costs. Remember no tax in PA.

I have a new favorite maker of tailored clothing - Basile. It's Zegna (mainline) quality at Canali prices IMO.

DC is filled with lawyers and politicos that need to wear fine tailored clothing

Good to hear it is a larger shop as his Locust street store was not much more than a large closet. This space isn't actually much bigger than a closet. I believe that the hours listed on the door are "By Appointment" which makes sense if he...
Square toe Bruno Magli's - at least they were brown.
