entry level MTM/Bespoke price list for NYC - Page 2

post #16 of 42
I could be entirely wrong--I only tried on one jacket--but I remember it being more English than Italian. Shoulders, though soft in their padding, were built up and extended beyond the natural end. Nice waist, skirt more open than closed. Of course it's MTM, and I think Greenfield is pretty open to what the customer wants.

Greenfield-for-Brooks is pretty American. The waist can be nipped a bit but the overall effect tends to be making the suit more slender rather than making it more British military.

Shoulder is relatively soft but there is definitely some padding.

I am told he can do a rather high armhole but that is not his default.

Having gone to Greenfield directly, you can specify the cut, shape and details that you would like. I have seen him produce some really nice suits in styles and fashions that were different than Brooks standard American cut. He is averaging about $900-$1000 for basic, but nice fabric, two peice suit with working buttonholes.

Interesting... I didn't think you could work directly with Greenfield.

Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but how does one find Greenfield without going through Brooks Brothers? Does he have his own tailoring shop in NYC?

The Greenfield factory is in East Williamsburg.

TimelessRider, can you comment on Traguardo suits? They are rarely mantioned on the forums and it will be interesting to get more info about them.

Regarding Martin Greenfield, as far as I know, they do not take direct retail customers. If anyone has different info, please share.

Their sales pitch is that they copied the best attributes of Borrelli, Kiton and Brioni (they do tons of Borrelli alterations and I would assume the other brands also) and charge you less than half of those makes. Construction seemed excellent, but the cuts of the suits I saw were more Brooks Brothers than Kiton.
Their stuff on the Bhambi manequins has a very low gorge and looks pretty unstylish to me.

Is it just me, or if you're paying over $2500 for a suit, you might as well go all out and pay $4000 and get highest quality bespoke. I don't understand, for instance, who on earth would buy Logsdail MTM. What's the point? If you care enough have the means for pay $2,800 for a suit, you can pay $4,000 and get the real deal. I don't get it.

pgoat, mikeber - I have orders in with both Logsdail MTM, and Traguardo, but neither have reached the first fitting stage yet. From what I've seen of Traguardo's work at his shop, they're quite well made. Know, however, that my priorities are fit and hopefully flattering cut--neither of which I can judge before receiving the finished product.

I don't presume to speak for all Logsdail MTM customers but you are certainly correct in that it's not a huge price jump from his MTM to bespoke (at least not for one suit). My plan is to try his MTM and then, at a later stage, his bespoke and see if the difference is worth it to me.
